November 6

Note: this event isn't hosted by QOC but by our neighboring club, Susquehanna Valley Orienteering, in Elk Neck State Park in northeastern Maryland. The Stumble is a long (~18km) orienteering race with a short variant (~10km), both with a mass start at noon (pre-race briefing at 11:45am). Controls on the Stumble courses must be found in order except within several 'windows' in which they can be found in any order, score-O style. In contrast to typical orienteering races, following other competitors is allowed, nay encouraged (though care is always required to avoid following someone blindly into a huge error). Pre--registration by email is advised for the Stumble courses or you may not get a pre-marked map. Sadly, it seems SVO will not be able to offer the planned white, yellow and orange recreational courses due to permission for use of some private property falling through. Please head to the SVO schedule for all details about this event. Note that the event will use old school pin punching, not electronic punching.

Reminder: On Sunday, November 6 at 2 a.m., Daylight Saving Time ends, and all clocks should be moved back one hour.
