    We have made the decision to postpone the Big Woods National Event to a later date based on recent changes in the spread of the COVID-19. In the past few weeks we had made preparations to reduce the risk but we felt this would sanitize the event and would not be the friendly event we all enjoy.  The particpants coming to event from around the country and our club volunteers are our orienteering family and the recent changes made the risk unacceptable.  

    Participants will receive a full refund of their entry fees by check over the next 3-4 weeks.  Those staying in hotels should cancel their reservations.

    We will be working with OUSA to define a date in the future to hold the event.  Much of the work is done so we can focus on promoting the event when a date had been decided and approved.

    I personally would like to thank all those who spent tremendous hours in preparation for this event and all those who volunteered to make the weekend a "DVOA" style national.  

    We will keep you posted as we move forward.   Stay safe!
