NAOC 2012, the North American Orienteering Championships, are taking place within relatively easy driving distance of us in Pennsylvania at the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, and we encourage all QOC orienteers to attend as many events as possible. Even if you're a beginning orienteer and can only register for one race, you'll learn a lot and you'll have a fine time. Make sure to register before Sept. 30 for discounted entry fees.

  • Compasses are available at no charge, but if lost incur a $15 replacement fee.
  • Please provide collateral (driver's license or car keys) when borrowing a compass or e-punch.
  • For additional safety, whistles are available for sale at $1/each.
