    Bill Gibbons, one of the founders of GOALS Adventure Racing Association passed away earlier this year. GOALS is a local Delaware Valley organization. Over the years, like DVOA, the GOALS organization has been a great resource people had for finding adventures, big and small in our area's parks. Successful adventure racing requires good orienteering skills, and many DVOA members as well as other O club members have participated in GOALS events. The two organizations have worked together in the past.

    There was no adventure to big or small for Bill. He was a big proponent of family adventure. GOALS sponsors a successful adventure racing team that has been ranked quite favorably. Bill will be missed! 

    While GOALS is taking time off this year from producing events, they plan on returning next year.

    This is sad news.  He was a very generous man.  I am sure GOALS and his family will miss him.  Very sad.
