Google Map

Near the Stafford/Prince William County line, take I-95 Exit 148. Go west as you exit the interstate, and proceed about 1.3 miles on Russell Rd/MCB-1 to the guard station (after the traffic light). You will need to show government-issued photo ID there, and say that you are attending QOC's orienteering event. Only pre-registered participants will be allowed on base. Once through the gates, follow QOC signs to the event area. You may not drive on any other roads. A directional map in PDF format to LZ Peregrine (our registration area) is available here.

Group Entries

Participants are welcome to orienteer together as a group (up to the maximum for that event; usually 4). Each member of a group is charged their individual rate as shown above, up to a group total of $30 (maximum), and each receives a map. A group receives one epunch. Individuals or groups desiring to compete on a second course after completing their first can do so for a reduced fee of $2/map subject to approval at the event by the Event Director.

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 will be loaned one 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 (such as car keys) when borrowing a compass or epunch.
  • Beginners are encouraged to watch relevant videos such as this one created by QOC's instructional guru David Onkst
