Visit of WAE Technical Delegate

novica3

Mr. Hakan Cakiroglu who is appointed WAE technical delegate, came to Slovenia on January 11th 2014 for his two days inspection. He looked over the competition field at Hippodrome Stožice and met with the members of the Organizing committee of the championships.
The discussion was about preparations of everything considering the organization of this rather complex championship. We gladly introduced him to our work so far, our experiences from the last year's European Junior Cup in Ljubljana and our efforts to prepare the event as best as we can. For the best implementation of the championships and for the hospitality we involved an experienced and devoted group of volunteers from Slovenian archery Clubs which were also in charge of last year's competition here in Ljubljana.
