Orienteering Surprise (“Mlynkovina”):  In categories M-18, W-18, M19-, W19-, M45-, W45-, M55-, W55 part of the map will be splitted to squares which will be randomly shuffled on the map, so the track will seem broken. You still need to follow the given checkpoint order. Sample on one of our olders map (not the same area):
