    As we all know, COVID has limited our events, and therefore our income. How can you help? We have just opened an account at Amazon Smiles. Amazon smiles is just like Amazon Prime, however Amazon will make a small donation to our club based on how much we spend. First you must search for Amazon Smiles. You will be prompted to search for a charity. Use our full name, not DVOA but Delaware Valley Orienteering Association. Your previous Amazon account will be brought with you. From then on, everytime you shop, please use Amazon Smiles so that we can reap the rewards.

    Here's a link to Amazon Smile: https://smile.amazon.com/
    To have it benefit your charity, you have to shop by starting through this page each time instead of the standard Amazon site.

    Since White Clay in March, which seems like a million years ago, my collection of DVOA maps and Greg's Pocono training maps have saved my sanity.  I have a folder that says "COVID O MAPS" and it's two inches thick with maps I've pulled from storage.  And special thanks to the folks who put on the few meets we did have.  You proved that pre-registration can work!  Lots of USYNLIGO maps but they have their own folder.  Anyway, I'll get out the checkbook and make a donation to DVOA to recognize how helpful orienteering has been to me in 2020.  I'll miss seeing everyone in the flesh at the Winter Meeting.
    ps Steve, checking and then pulling controls at Green Lane has really refreshed my skills which I thought had deteriorated beyond repair!
