DVOA Event Schedule

A Message to our Membership and Orienteering Friends:

Due to the COVID-19 virus, DVOA suspended all scheduled events starting in Spring 2020. We are resuming orienteering activities as public health and park officials relax restrictions on group activities. 

Following the board discussions in June, we have voted upon and approved the following:

  1. We will resume in person orienteering events using the OUSA Social Distancing Guidelines outlined in their draft guidance.
  2. As we continue to add events to the schedule, we are taking a cautious and deliberate approach as state openings in the four states that we service ebb and flow with the current COVID situation. Our foremost consideration is for the safety of our members and guests. 
  3. Pre-registration will be required for these events. Links to online registration will be posted in the schedule for each event. Fees will be payed online and waivers signed during registration to limit person to person contact.
  4. When possible, "Streamer Orienteering" using some of the weekend's event courses will be available for two weeks following the event. Pre-registration required and fee charged to cover map access.  These couses are all pending park approval. See the complete schedule for these "Virtual Events".
  5. Summer meeting will be virtual with newsletter distributed to members.
  6. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we will not be having our Summer picnic.
  7. We have cancelled this year's Hickory Run Training Event and have moved the Rodney Scout Reservation/Iron Hill/Bellvue A-Event to November 2021 and the Big Woods event to Spring 2022. We have also cancelled the Mid-Atlantic Championships this year and have informed the other clubs that DVOA will host in 2021.  
  8. Because of the impact of and the variations in the state restrictions and the understanding that returning to events is very much an individual decision, the Board has voted to suspend our points system for the 2020 competition year.  We will resume our points system in January 2021

Please check the schedule below for returning events, and bear with us as we rebuild a more complete schedule, and adjust to evolving guidelines. In the meantime, we encourage members to still get outdoors – it will be therapeutic. Train on your own, re-run old courses, do course planning field work. As a reminder, we have numerous permanent courses with maps available on the DVOA website: > Our Permanent Courses
Be sure to check that the park is open before heading out (a few are currently closed).

The Board will continue to meet in the coming months to keep abreast of state opening opportunities and to continue to build a schedule that allows us to get back into the woods while taking the safest approach to protect the health and safety of our members and participants.  Stay tuned to the schedule page to see our opportunities as they develop.  We appreciate everyone's patience as events are adjusted and rescheduled to abide by local and state guidance.  Take care of yourselves and your loved ones and we hope to see everyone soon.

Stay healthy!

Control Pickup will begin at 2PM (please consider staying around to help - you won't have to wait long for pickup to begin, and while the park is small we will have a lot of controls in the woods, so many people each covering a small area will be helpful).

The Exact Change Rogaine at Hickory Run

Check out all the event details here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1HSkkMlZMox6jaPMUqpY31qGGjd7PII9W

Pre-Registration required on Event Register: https://eventreg.orienteeringusa.org/eventregister/a40/register/start/exact-change-rogaine

Normal Registration ends on May 10th.  Late Registration Ends May 27th.

 

Join us for 10, 7, or 4 hours of navigation in excellent Poconos terrain.  We will be using all four of our fully-contiguous Hickory Run orienteering maps (these have been used for national level orienteering and adventure racing events).  Food will be provided after the event, with a chance to hang out with orienteering friends, new and old, to share your adventures. 

Tasty Prizes for the most controls found!  Special coins will be placed at each control, and an additional prize will go the person who can collect just the right coins on the course, so that their coin value most closely matches their final orienteering score.


The timing options for the different duration courses are:
10 hour:  Map handout 7AM, event 8AM-6PM.
7 hour:  Map handout 10AM, event 11AM-6PM.
4 hour:  There are two different options:  
     Map handout 10AM, event 11AM-3PM.
     Map handout 1PM, event 2PM-6PM.

Plan on joining us for a day of navigational fun in some of our best terrain.  Despite the fact that DVOA goes up to Hickory Run for training each year, there are a ton of awesome areas of the park that most orienteers have not visited in years, if ever.  Check out the compiled map on the last page of the event details link above to get a look at just how cool the entire mapped area is when viewed as once.  Look forward to seeing you in the woods!

On Yellow, the trail near 1, 2, 3 and 4 is overgrown, so there will be some Orange streamers along the trail to make it easier to follow.
Yellow and Orange courses go around the Lake.
Advanced courses will includie a mix of some still nice woods, and various trail route-choice options that avoid the worst of the summer vegetation.

Updated Information, 9/18/20

 

Springton Manor; Event Notes

 

We will have courses for all abilities, White through Red. The park is a great place to learn how to orienteer with good visibility, large, obvious features and a strong trail network. The White and Yellow course are perfect for beginners, and novices as well as families.

 

*Registration is on-line only. 

*Please try to register before Saturday for this event.

*If you registered and your name isn’t on the registered participants list, please contact me. Better to fix it before Sunday.

*We’ll stage next to the Carriage House/park office. The usual parking lot.

*We are hopeful that the restroom right in the Carriage House should be open for us. The restrooms are open down the hill in the Great Barn. 

*Please take a few minutes to look around the park. The gardens and fields near the mansion look wonderful right now.

*Cluesheets and course notes will be available a short time before the event. Print out your cluesheets at home please! They will be available at:

 

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1hZp1w3Pfq1kX12IbJc4xc0f5jEahx-0M?usp=sharing

 

 

Course Notes

*The controls should be programmed for SI Air for this event. If you are starting early, please check with the start person and make sure the Air feature on the controls is turned on.

*There are fields that are still being actively cultivated. Stay out of them. There are plenty of route choices to avoid them. Goats and sheep are unpredictable, Stay out of their pastures.

*Please honor the out of bounds areas marked on your maps. You can do better than Warwick.

*Springton is a small park, so there is a high density of controls out there. Make sure you are at the correct control before punching.

*There are some flags to help mark trails on the White and Yellow courses. Those folks are more than welcome to follow them, otherwise, it’s a LONG way around.

*The map was updated recently and generally holds up well. Thank you Wyatt. Vegetation is still summery, somewhat greener in some areas. Areas marked as rough open land are quite variable. Some runnable, some not. The green hashed areas are nose high right now and very slow. 

*I’ve been trying to keep up with the park’s seasonal mowings. There may be some areas that have been mowed differently as depicted on the map. Seasonal mowing patterns do not effect anything in the woods.

 

 

          Remember, we are still to follow mandated rules concerning group activities.

*Please do not come if you are, or have been ill with any of the CV19 symptoms or have been around others that have symptoms.

*Bring a mask and wear it when you are around people at the start, registration, or otherwise around people. You may remove it once you are away from the start, by yourself, or with your group.

Move away from the registration area when you are through there. This has been a problem.

*Please bring your own water to take out on the course. There will not be any at controls. or at registration.

 

*Maintain 2 meters distance between you and others especially near registration or the start.

ED/CS Notes:

           To Register for this event, see here.

           For Course notes, see here.

           For Clue Sheets to print, check here later (still may have to move 1-2 controls).

While archery hunting is allowed in PA on Sunday Nov 15 this year, no hunting is allowed at any time at Gov. Dick.  Still, not a bad idea to wear some orange in case of illegal archers.

There will be a Free Introduction to Orienteering Class at 11AM (after the class you can try out a course!).

The White, Yellow, Orange, Brown, and Green courses all stay on the northern part of the map, which is flatter, less rocky, and more open.   

The GreenY, Red, and Blue courses go on the southern part of the map, which provides some of the club’s more technically and physically challenging terrain (one of my favorite and most frustrating areas for working on my skills).

The Special Course is a Yes-or-No-O, where for each control you must decide if the flag was placed in the correct spot or not.

Special start window for those with high COVID risk from 9:30-10:30.  General starts any time from 10:30AM to 1PM  (Yes-or-No-O starts until 2PM).  Control pickup will begin promptly at 2:45PM so we can finish before dark!
