Working Test in Kauksi, Estonia 10.03.2018

In the second ever Working Test held in Estonia, I was acting like secretary to judges Tomi Sarkkinen (Finland) and Miso Sipola (Finland). It was a nice winter day with a lots of snow (first time in Estonia to hold a test in winter) and many great participants from Estonia and neighbouring countries to inspire us.

Startisime 1.oktoobril tasemekatsel / Nome-B on 1st of October

Pealkiri on täpne, et startisime, sest tulemust me kahjuks ei saanud, kuna suunamisülesanne muutus Sädel jooksvalt otsinguks, aga see polnud see, mida teha oli vaja :)

We participated with Säde in Nome-B test, but unfortunately did not get any result as the first blind she turned into blind search and we did not get any further.
