QOC Needs You! Sign-Up Now! The Mid-Atlantic Champs pit QOC - now determined to win back the title - against neighboring clubs DVOA and SVO, and all QOC members are encouraged to come help us reclaim the title! The club with the highest number of points overall, based on numerology involving placement in each classic course + participation + team relay results, wins the Broken Compass Award. This year the event will be hosted by DVOA at Brandywine Creek State Park (near Wilmington DE). Details of the event and courses have been posted (or mentioned in their forums), with one mention being cleats are recommended for Green and Red courses due to some steeper climbs. Relays, consisting of 3 person teams, start at 1pm.

Brandywine Creek State Park Relay Runners: Please email Jon Torrance ASAP (just click on his name) a note including your name, gender, age and usual course (yellow? red? etc) if you'd like to have fun as a relay runner AND let him know if you are getting to the event by means other than the bus - thanks!

Ride The QOC Bus! For the convenience of club members, to get there we'll be using several full-size buses (see below), complete with WiFi, DVD, reclining seats and restrooms. This is a fun and relaxing way to get to this event and we highly encourage you to sign up once registration opens. [There will be a nominal cost just like in the past; full details here.] We will be basing the meet up spots in Virginia and Maryland based on convenience to riders, but you can anticipate leaving around 7:30am and returning around 6pm.

The key thing is to be there, whether you get there on your own, in a carpool, or on the bus. This is a fun day full of orienteering and we'd like you to be there!
