Estonia to host ERC2014

European representatives and observers have chosen Estonia as the host of the 11ERC2014.

13 representatives and observers from European countries participated in the vote. In a ranking vote, voters were asked to rank the three bids in the order of preference. Accordingly, lower score indicates higher placing.

The total scores were as follows:
1. Estonia 23 points
2. Israel 27 points
3. Ukraine 28 points

As the results of the vote show, it was a very equal competition.

Please mark in your calendars - 11th European Rogaining Championships will be held 7-8 June 2014 in South Estonia, Põlva county.

I would like to thank all groups who submitted bids to host ERC2014. The ERC bidding contest indicates that the ERC has grown into a highly prestigious event and many organising groups are looking forward to host it. I shall encourage the other two bidders to consider re-submitting their bids for ERCs of the following years. The intention is to commence the ERC2015 call for bids as soon as the WRC2015 and 2016 processes (see respective news) are completed, which should be by the end of June 2013. Just to note that the ERC2015 call for bids will be an open competition and any other organising group is also most welcome to present their bid.

Bids to host ERC2014

To the attention of European members and observers,

Three bids have been submitted to host 11th European Rogaining Championships in 2014 – from Israel, Ukraine and Estonia (see attachments). Each of the three bids features a distinctive terrain type. Take note of the proposed dates of the event, which are different from one bid to another, respectively 14-15 March (Israel), 24-25 May (Ukraine) and 7-8 June (Estonia). While Ukraine (in 2006 and 2010) and Estonia (in 2005) have hosted the ERC before, the current bids are from other organising groups in these countries. Please consult with your rogaining committees and make up your preference. I’ll call a vote on these bids on 18 February.
