French Creek State Park, PA
July 8, 2017

As part of  DVOA's 50th Anniversary celebration, DVOA is hosting a 12 or 6 hour rogaine on July 8, 2017. Instead of topographic maps, this rogaine will use seven orienteering maps covering the area around French Creek State Park in Pennsylvania. The maps are 1:10,000 or 1:15,000 scale, field checked betwen 2000 and 2013, and drafted between 2011 and 2013.

Competitors will be in Teams; there will be no Solo category. Each rogaine category has three genders: male, female, mixed. Each gender category has three ages: Youth (17 and under), Adult (18 through 44), and Senior (45 and above). A team with mixed age groups will be entered in the Adult category. The event headquarters will be at French Creek State Park.
