Night & Day Orienteering This Weekend
- QOC hosts a night-orienteering event this Saturday, May 4, and a (regular/day) orienteering event this Sunday, May 5 - who's ready for two great adventures?
The Night-O will be the first use of a new venue for QOC, Morven Park, located near Leesburg VA. Pre-register by Friday noon for one of the 4 courses (beginner, intermediate, medium and long advanced), or register at the event. Check in anytime betweeen 8 - 9 pm, start between 8:30 - 9:15pm, and allow yourself enough time to be back no later than 10:15. Full event details and the link to pre-register (which is highly encouraged given the short start window) are on the Morven event webpage, which also describes this rather unusual terrain.
On Sunday, head to Pohick Bay Regional Park, east of Lorton VA, for a full set of courses (white through blue). Register at the event between 10:45am - 1:15pm, start anytime between 11 - 1:30, and be out of the woods by 3pm. One of our favorite apres-event deals is also back: a free slice of pizza with any beverage at the nearby zPizza. Full event (and pizza) details are on the Pohick event webpage as well.
The weather looks great for the whole weekend, so come out for one or especially both events!
