18th IARU Region 1 ARDF Championship

18th IARU Region 1 ARDF Championships was held in Romanian resort Baile Felix between 6-9 September 2011.

262 competitors from 25 countries, great number of officials, visitors etc. enjoyed that excellently organized event. For the first time so called “Sprint competition” was officially included in the program. It is running in the park amongst spectators, searching for 10 transmitters, situated 100 – 200 meters apart each other. The idea of that format is to give the public a notion how ARDF looks like.
