Armindo Jacinto (Mayor of Idanha-a-Nova)
The County of Idanha-a-Nova is very pleased to cooperate in the organisation of the “MTBO'15” Orienteering Championships. We are very honoured to welcome all the athletes and their teams and friends who will participate in this major sports event.
Our County has excellent natural characteristics for all sorts of outdoor sports. These unique characteristics have attracted several national and international Orienteering competitions to Idanha-a-Nova in recent years. The world award granted to Monsanto's Orienteering Course in 2013 increased our duty to do ever more and better for this sport and this County.
Idanha-a-Nova has all infrastructures needed to meet the standards required by major and prestigious competitions such as the “MTBO'15”. We count once more on the priceless support and commitment of the Portuguese Orienteering Federation and ADFA club, whose outstanding organisational skills deserve the highest praise.
A final word for all those who will honour us with their presence in our County in 2015. We welcome you warmly to Idanha-a-Nova and we wish you a very pleasant stay.
We hope that the days you will spend with us will bring you good memories and immense wish to return.
We wait for you in Idanha-a-Nova!
