The planning meeting of Jukola relay was held in Hälvälä in good weather as well as in good spirits. In the meeting were present members of Jukola organization and also members of the group responsible for the tv production.
There will be 12 hours of live broadcasting which will be sold through internet into 40 different countries. Several tv cameras will follow the competitors: between control points GPS tracking shows the progress of orienteerers; in some legs “running camera” follows close behind the competitor.
According to Markku Mäkäräinen, tv director of Jukola relay, the broadcast from the kettle terrains of Jukola is going to be excellent.

Big group of control point managers are supporting the broadcasting, so that the top teams can be seen already when approaching the controls. Control inspectors will be able to enjoy the atmosphere in it´s most genuine environment – in the scent of the forest.
