May 5


Pre-registration is required and will open on Monday, April 29 at 6 PM and close at 12 Noon Saturday, May 4. Pre-registration is mandatory.

Please join us for a complete selection of classic courses designed by Peggy Dickison. Rosaryville is a 982-acre day-use state park with miles of hiking/biking and horse trails. We will be operating from the Pavilion Picnic area.

Event Director Workshop: Elevate your volunteerism - become a QOC Event Director! Join Kathleen and Sharmagh for a workshop in Pavilion B from 10:00 to 11:00am. Gain insights from basics to specifics and receive the newly revised QOC Event Director Handbook. Veterans - sign up to learn new practices for a smoother experience. Supporting QOC and fellow members as an Event Director is rewarding so make sure to check the "Yes, I'll be there!" box on the event registration form (and choose a course check-in time after the workshop).

QOC offers free Beginner Training. We’ll train you in the fundamentals on-site, but check out our Your First Event and For Beginners web pages to better prepare for the event. Beginners are also encouraged to watch relevant videos, such as this one created by QOC's instructional guru David Onkst.

Group Leaders: Even though you will be pre-registering online, please contact the Event Director to inform them of your plans and numbers so that we are prepared to welcome you. Visit our For Group Leaders page for more information about what to expect.


  • There is no water on the course. Participants are responsible for their own hydration. A very limited supply of bottled water for emergency use will be on hand with the Meet Director; but it is vital to stay well hydrated. Please come prepared!
  • Pet Policy: Leashed pets are allowed in Rosaryville State Park.
  • Please note that Rosaryville State Park has installed an automated toll machine for admission. The toll machine accepts credit cards and exact change $1 and $5 bills. Weekend and holiday entry fees are per vehicle: $3 in-state and $5 for out-of-state.

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
