PWF BridgeWelcome to QOC's classic orienteering event at picturesque Prince William Forest Park near Quantico, VA.

Pre-registration will be required.

New to orienteering? We will hold beginner clinics continuously during the event; just tell the friendly folks at registration if you'd like to be in one and they'll take care of you. Also, make sure to check out our Your First Event and For Beginners webpages, and if they don't answer any question you have, just use our Contact Us form and ask away!

Group Leaders: please see our For Group Leaders webpage and then contact the Event Director so your group can get pre-registered in advance. Do not use the online registration (it's for individuals and groups of 4 or less).

Additional Information:

  • As mentioned above, parking for QOC participants will be in the (nearby) Williams Ballfield, a short walk from our registration area in the Pine Grove Pavilion.
  • Dogs are welcome in this park but must be kept on leash at all times.

FAQ's about the new registration system, which is integrated with our membership database:

  • Q1: What's a "guest"?
    • A1: An additional group member, who will orienteer with the registrant.
  • Q2: I have a family membership; how does my additional family member register separately from me?
    • A2: Using their own email, which must be in the membership database to be recognized. If it's not there (yet), the primary member should enter it into the database.
  • Q3: I'm a member of another OUSA club (not QOC); how do I register to get discounted entry?
    • A3: Register as a non-member this time, then email us telling us which club you belong to and when your membership expires. We'll process a (partial) refund for you and enter you in our database; next time you register you will be recognized as qualifying for the member discount.

We look forward to seeing you soon! Please feel free to contact the Event Directors (link below) if you have any questions.

Important Notes
  • If you wish to become a QOC member you should join online in advance via this webpage (which also explains the member benefits). Membership is completely optional.
  • Most of our events use an 'epunch' timing chip for electronic timing. Individuals or groups without their own epunch pay a higher entry fee (see above), which includes the loan of an epunch for that event. Loaned epunches that are lost incur a $40 replacement fee. Epunches (also known as SI-cards or finger sticks) can be purchased from online vendors as described here.
  • Former QOC members who have let their membership lapse pay non-member 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 epunch.
  • For additional safety, whistles are available for sale at $1/each.
  • Free beginner instruction is always available - just ask at the registration table.
