DVOA Event Schedule

A Message to our Membership and Orienteering Friends:

  • DVOA will continue to host our in-person orienteering events - providing beginner level as well as challenging adventures through Orienteering in the great outdoors - as much as our volunteers and local parks allow with our pre-registration system.
  • For a more isolated orienteering experience - our Permanent Courses await you any time*. (*Check with the specific park for possible limits on their opening hours.)
  • We also will continue to respect local COVID regulations - see specific event information for anything uncommon or changed vs. the new-normal expectations.
  • Mask usage: Please continue to respect other Orienteers & Volunteers who have different COVID strategies than you do. At our registration, check-in and download areas in particular, please be respectful and wear your mask if they are masked.
  • Starts: When you register for a specific start window, please aim to arrive in that timeframe. It helps spread out starters, and ensures participants don't have to wait very long to get out on their course.
  • Online-pre-registration: watch for the deadlines a day or two before the event - see links within each event below. Pre-registration ensures there will be a map available for you.
  • If you miss the pre-registration, email the Event Director to check if they can accommodate you (additional fees may apply.)
  • Should you have any questions regarding a specific event, please feel free to click on the event director to clarify any specific needs you have.

    Stay healthy!
    DVOA Board of Directors
