Summer Congress in Copenhagen next week

Together with Danish Defense, the Reserve Officers Association in Denmark has the pleasure to welcome CIOR, CIOMR and NRFC at the congress in Denmark.
 
The Congress will be held in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, from Monday, 30th July to Friday, 3rd August, and will take place down town Copenhagen at the new and modern Tivoli Congress Hotel.
 
We have planned the Congress to optimize the meeting hours and minimize transport. All the meetings, the Opening and Closing Ceremonies and Closing Dinner will be held at the Tivoli Congress Hotel.
 
The CIOR Symposium will be initiated by Chief of Defence General Peter Bartram and the program will continue with the subjects of Cyber Defense, Post-deployment and re-integration.
 
The CIOMR Scientific Days program is initiated by the Host Nation Program chaired by the Surgeon General, Major General (M.D.) Erik Darre. The title of the interesting program is “Human Aspects of Danish International Military Missions – The sick, the sad, the living and the dead”.
 
The Young Reserve Officers Workshop will be held jointly close together with the Congress. The YROW meets already on Sunday and will be opening the workshop with the traditional Ice-breaker.
 
The CIOR Military Competition takes place at barracks of the Royal Lifeguard 25 kilometers North of Copenhagen, where the competitors are offered modern facilities and all the events within close distance. The competitors are invited to arrive from the 26th July and do their acclimatization and training. 
 
The first day of competition - on the 31st July - are the pistol and rifle shooting followed by the 3C and LOAC competitions. On August 1st both land obstacle and swimming obstacle competition take place. Finally the orienteering march on August 2nd will bring the competitors into Danish nature. And that evening the competitors will enjoy a BBQ and the Nordic light evening together with the YROs.
 
The Danish Home Guard invite you during the congress to the reception at the Royal Danish Arsenal Museum located in the old Arsenal built by King Christian IV in 1604 in order to store canons and hand weapons. The building itself is a monument to commemorate how the renaissance extended the Royal Power and how it was centralized in Copenhagen. The museum today has a very special exhibition about Danish Forces international operations in Afghanistan where you meet the soldiers' daily life in the Helmand province. And there too the Danish Home Guard invites you to an exclusive exhibition for this evening.
 
The Danish Evening will take you out for dinner at the sea fortress "Trekroner" situated at the entrance of Copenhagen harbor. "Trekroner" is the oldest sea fortress in Copenhagen's Fortifications and was built more than 200 years ago. It was the site of battles with the famous Lord Nelson and has witnessed sweeping military developments. Today, the historic buildings are partially restored and you can explore Trekroner’s history here in the casemate and surrounding grounds.
