Discussion: Australian team for Venla/Jukola
in: Orienteering; General;
There are about 7 of us who are going to be at Venla/Jukola this year, so with a few more PPL, we may be able to field both a Venla and Jukola team.
If you are keen to join in, please respond
Don't think I'm going to get to Europe in time this year.
Yes! for the aussie Venla team, along with Bomb and two others?
Also keen to run a shorter Jukola leg if there is a spare spot.
I'm in. and I'm also keen for a shorter jukola leg if possible. I think Laurina is going as well, and I've heard maybes from Rachel and Ilka.
I haven't heard anything from Laurina, and Bryan for that matter, but had heard that they were going to be there
Hey guys, I will be there so am keen to run either team ... preferably Venla because last time it was really fun. Let me know (completely understand if there are others ahead of me though!)
I would be keen to join if you have a place on the Jukola team. Just a short hop from Paris and I had a blast when I did the Jukola long night leg a few years ago!
Looks like a full Venla team is confirmed - Ness, Laurina, Fel and I. We still have the makings of a second team, so if you know anyone else who might be interested let us know. any jwoc or student champs runners?
Hi jim nick and I will be there too so book us a spot in the team if you wants us.my pref is the venla and nicks is a day leg if poss.
I am planning to get to Finland at the start of the week beforevenla/jukola to do some training and maybe run the Forssa games (thurs before jukola, 150k north of Helsinki).
count me in for that too ness!
PPL that have shown interest
Ness, Bomb, Rooey, Fel and Hilary
Jim, Bryan, Ev, Muzz, AC and Nick
That is 11 all up, enough for both a Venla and Jukola team
Would be great with an aussie jukola team. It's been a few years.
I'll be there. If I'm not running a long night leg for centrum, then I can fill a spot if you guys need someone.
I would be keen for a spot in a Venla team if there is a second
Belinda is also in. need one more for a second team.
I don't think I can be there.
yep I'm keen! just have to make sure I can do my uni exams early.....
I'm happy to take care of the entries if you like. Being in Europe means I can avoid the €10 surcharge for non-Euro entry payments. Should also book a tent as I believe that these are going fast. So, how many teams are there? Two Venla and one Jukola? Cost is €140 per Venla team, €245 per Jukola team, and €200 per tent.
sounds good to me (incl tent). do we have to nominate a running order yet?
It would be great if you could do the entry AC, especially to secure a tent :) 2xVenla and 1xJukola sounds good so far. We still need one more girl but I'm sure someone will pop up.
I'll set up an email with everyone who is interested so far...
I'd love to fill in your second venla team if you don't mind that I'm not Australian.
Had been hoping to convince Troy to run, but I couldn't get it to happen, we have 6 boys, so would very much like another to make the team.
Hilary is a spare, so could make that spot, but there may be more Girls yet to come
Ness, Fel, Rooey and Bomb are entered in a Venla Team.
If bun, Ilka and Hillary are still keen then Suzanne would make a full team. Both ness and I were going to look for jukola teams to run in as well, so maybe one of us could take the last place in the Aussie team.
Suzanne is already on an American team - so not available any longer...
Looks like we need another girl for a second girls team
hmm I wouldnt count on Bun still being keen..
yeah sorry i'd love to, but i've decided not to go to europe this year. plus changing my exams to make jukola was going to be difficult....
At this stage, we have entered and paid for 1 Jukola team and 1 Venla team (plus a tent and 3 Emit cards). We have until 17 May to enter a second Venla team, so we have some time to identify whether we have enough runners. We don't need to decide on the running order until closer to the event, although it wouldn't hurt to identify who is going to do the first three legs of the Jukola so they can get some night-O training under their belt (preferably in complex granite terrain :-)).
We need 2 more girls to make up the second Venla team... anyone know of someone else who may be interested, don't have to be an Aussie ;)
Start a new thread with heading 'Two Venla team members needed'. Might get attention that it isn't getting at the moment because of the word 'Australian' in the heading.
yep, I thought of that before, will do!
