DVOA Event Schedule

A Message to our Membership and Orienteering Friends:

  • DVOA will continue to host our in-person orienteering events - providing beginner level as well as challenging adventures through Orienteering in the great outdoors - as much as our volunteers and local parks allow with our pre-registration system.
  • For a more isolated orienteering experience - our Permanent Courses await you any time*. (*Check with the specific park for possible limits on their opening hours.)
  • We also will continue to respect local COVID regulations - see specific event information for anything uncommon or changed vs. the new-normal expectations.
  • Mask usage: Please continue to respect other Orienteers & Volunteers who have different COVID strategies than you do. At our registration, check-in and download areas in particular, please be respectful and wear your mask if they are masked.
  • Starts: When you register for a specific start window, please aim to arrive in that timeframe. It helps spread out starters, and ensures participants don't have to wait very long to get out on their course.
  • Online-pre-registration: watch for the deadlines a day or two before the event - see links within each event below. Pre-registration ensures there will be a map available for you.
  • If you miss the pre-registration, email the Event Director to check if they can accommodate you (additional fees may apply.)
  • Should you have any questions regarding a specific event, please feel free to click on the event director to clarify any specific needs you have.

    Stay healthy!
    DVOA Board of Directors

ED/CS Notes:

The annual DVOA Winter Meeting will be held Saturday January 22nd from 3:00 - 5:30 pm.  Due to COVID, we will again use a virtual Zoom platform rather than an in-person meeting.  Because we are using a private Zoom account, we will not post the log-in details here.  Instead, an email will be sent to all members probably no later than Monday 1/10 with the log-in information.  If you would like to participate in the meeting and do not receive an email by end of the day Monday 1/10, please send me an email (toverbaugh@comcast.net).  We will then send you a separate email with the log-in details.

ED/CS Notes:

This year’s President’s Cup will be held on the new (once-used) Bellevue State Park map in Wilmington, DE.  It will follow a Score-O format with Jeopardy! Theme.  See details below.

Jeopardy O

Map Scale:                        1:5000

Contour Interval:             2.5m

Map Specification:            ISSprOM (Sprint Standards)

Event Format:                   Score-O

Start Time:                       12:00 noon sharp.  Gather at pavilion at 11:45 am for           map distribution & instructions

Time Limit:                       60 minutes

Number of Controls:         48

Control Difficulty:             Mix of Easy, Intermediate, Advanced

Control Points:                 Same as Control # (e.g. control 31 is worth 31 points)

Maximum Points:             2616 (excluding potential Jeopardy Daily Double Bonus)

Event Registration:   Click Here to Register <

Registration closes at 11:00 PM Thursday January 20th.

Electronic Punch:  E-punch will be used for Finish timing only.  Pin punches will be used at controls to record the responses to the Jeopardy questions on a special control card.

      NOTE:  If you are concerned about touch points due to  COVID, you may bring your own permanent marker on the course and use that to mark the control card instead of the pin punch.

Overtime Point Penalties:

0 to 1 minute:                -50

1 minute to 2 minutes:    -100

2 minutes to 3 minutes:   -200

3 minutes to 4 minutes:   -400

4 minutes to 5 minutes:   -800

5 minutes to 6 minutes:   -1600

6 minutes to 7 minutes:   -3200

> 7 minutes                    -3200

Jeopardy Theme:  The map has been divided into 6 different sectors, each of which corresponds to a Jeopardy category.  The category topics and questions are orienteering-related.  The total points available in each category are the same:  436 points.  Within each category on the map are 8 controls.  At each control flag, you will find a laminated card on top of the flag showing the control number and the Jeopardy question along with 4 possible responses:  A, B, C, D.  You must pick the response you believe is correct and then use the pin punch (or your permanent marker) to mark your response in the corresponding A, B, C, or D box on the control card.  You will only receive points for a control if you answer the Jeopardy question correctly.  The difficulty of the questions generally increases with the control number (e.g. question at control 78 will be much more difficult than that at control 31).  You might want to keep this in mind when formulating your strategy for which controls to visit.  Also, two of the controls have been randomly designated as “Daily Doubles.”  These will be marked as such on the question card.  If you answer a Daily Double question correctly, you will receive double the point value for that control.  There are no electronic punch stations at the controls.  To record your Finish time, you must punch the electronic punch Finish box on the sawhorse on the east side of the pavilion.  Then proceed to Download at the pavilion.  At Download, you must download your finish time and turn in your control punch card so that your Jeopardy responses can be recorded in an Excel spreadsheet for the official scoring.  Note that overtime penalties are rather severe so you should plan on finishing within the 1 hour time limit.  Control pick-up will begin as soon as the course is cleared.

Several cautions:  There is a stable area on the southwest side of the map.  Controls have been placed to avoid stables and corrals but it is still possible you could encounter a horse and rider on a trail.  If you do, the horse and rider have the right of way.  Announce your presence well in advance and give the horse a wide berth when passing.  There is a popular disc golf course on the map and controls are placed in or near the disc golf area.  Please be respectful of other park users and do not interfere with their enjoyment of the park.  A road crossing(s) may be required depending on which controls you elect to visit.  Be mindful of traffic when crossing the road.  The Bellevue Mansion area and associated formal gardens are out-of-bounds and marked with red cross-hatch on the maps.  Participants are not permitted to enter this area.

Directions:  From north, take I-95 south to Marsh Rd. exit. Go south on Marsh Rd. to intersection with Carr Rd. Take a left on Carr Rd. Park entrance is ahead on right.

From south: participants are urged to use I-495 rather than I-95 due to major road construction in Wilmington. Take I-495 north to Exit 4 US-13/DE-3/Edgemoor Rd. Turn right onto Edgemoor Rd. and follow for 0.8 mile. At light, turn slight right onto Marsh Rd. Follow Marsh Rd. 1.3 miles to intersection with Carr Rd. Take a right on Carr Rd. - park entrance is ahead on right.

At this time of year, there is no park entrance fee in effect.  Follow signs to the main parking lot.  Porta-johns are available next to the parking lot.  To get to the pavilion from the parking lot, proceed northwest to cross the gravel track and then take the footbridge across the pond.  Pavilion #1 which will serve as the event center is on the left.  There are no porta johns at the pavilion.

ED/CS Notes:

To start off our DVOA Spring Schedule this Sunday, we are delighted to debut the now completely revised Core Creek map. Courses are designed to get everyone out into Bucks County terrain when it offers its most open navigation conditions of the year. So the longer courses visit all corners of this small park through the most runnable areas. Because of the density and variety of detail in virtually every part of the park, we will be using a 1:7500 scale version of the map for this event.

An extensive trail system full of a variety of greens as well as large (and small) clearings and wide open fields will challenge (and reward) all orienteers to carefully choose the best route from control to control. Then every once in a while you'll find yourselves in a patch of wide open woods which courses use to their fullest. And for the runners among us, advanced courses provide plenty of opportunity to stretch out your legs - but only if you do it smartly. Cool

We will be staging the event from Duchess Lane parking lot which is conveniently located close to the center of the park which wraps from northwest to south to northeast around Lake Luxembourg. We have a heated bathroom and playground apparatus just feet from our pavilion, complete with grill. Remember we do not provide water on our courses or snacks at the staging area, so plan accordingly. And let's hope for minimal rain this coming week since the park can get rather soggy.

The posted course stats are now official.  

Pre-Registration is required -- deadline is Friday March 4 midnight.  Please use the following link to go to the registration page.

ED/CS Notes:

Courses lengths, climb and controls shown are now final.

There will be no drinking water on the course, at the start or finish. Please bring and carry what you require on the course, before and after the event.

The park office nearby registration has heated flush bathrooms.

Course notes: 

Some courses will visit the same contol more than once.

There are many controls nearby other controls (but not similar feature controls) so check carefully your control number before punching-in and moving on.  

Please be aware that semi-open areas have been mowed so there is presently (early spring) little variation in "open" versus "semi-open" areas shown on the map. 

Some slight map changes have been made due to changes at the park.  Rootstocks along course legs have been generally updated as of 4/2/22. To be added the rootstock must be 1.5 meters or higher.  Some older rootstocks previously on the map have not been removed although they may now be smaller than 1.5m in height.

The woods although rocky in places are wide-open with high visibility.

Control descriptions will be on the bottom front of each map and separate control descriptions will be available near registration for those who need them.

ED/CS Notes:

Invitation to Four Mile Circle Easter Saturday – 16 April

In honor of our mascot, anyone have a bunny outfit or rabbit ears they can wear?

We’ll deduct 10 minutes off your time….well, not really.

We are planning to makeEaster Saturday special for everyone, especially families bringing children with them.  For the younger, youngest, and young at heart, ashort 790m Easter Treasure Hunt through the beautiful open woodsencircling our Staging Area. Then a full set of regular courses for everyonethat use terrain most orienteers never get to visit which will challenge allof you.

The map we’ll be using isextensively revised (updated in the 2½ years since we last visited Four Mile Circle, some of it mapped 6 or 7 years ago) that incorporatesmultiple controlled burnsdone in many areassince our last visit in 2019 which offerroute choices (and features) never before inviting.  E.g. far less blueberry groundcover to thrash through which will richly reward careful map reading.

One apology….to get to these new areas, there will be a 1.2k walk to Start so that all coursescan startin thesemostrecentlyupdated areas (which only the longest advanced course ever get to visit) beforethey turn back home towards Finish.  Hint, hint…getting to that remote Start, some of you could drive family andfriends to Start and return to park atthe Staging Area, then use the walk/jog back to Start as a good warm up.  We are also exploring having some masked “taxi service” for those who could really use that option. 

Here are preliminary course stats for you to choose from.  We’ll post final vetted stats within the next week, but they will be very close to these.  Iapologize for the death-defying climbs (topping out at 100m for the 10.1k Blue)which were inevitable in suchsteep and dramatic pineland terrain. ?While the undulating terrain can be subtle, mapped contours decisively show the park’s topography….once you surrender to seeing it.

Please register online as soon as possible.  Course files will go to the printer several days before event Registration officially closes.  So if you want a map of your own, help that process by registering as soon as you know you are coming so that we can make as accurate a guesstimate as possible.  And please consider volunteering an hour or sobefore or after you run your course to help our core staff go out on their own courses.

We promise ideal mid-April weather….and lots of orienteering esprit de corps in this wonderfully unique terrain among DVOA venues, currently and conveniently so inviting before groundcover leafs out.  Courses will take full advantage of theseideal conditions.

ED/CS Notes:

Looks like we should have a warm, pleasant day at Willows & Skunk Hollow this Sunday, as we use this completely redone map for the first time (thanks, Wyatt!). Scale is 5000m and contours are 5m. The vegetation can be pretty dense, but recent visits by Tim and Wyatt suggest that everyone should be able to get into and out of the controls without getting too scratched up. Please note in advance a few off-limits areas: there will be a general wellness event happening at the park on Sunday, so give the mansion a wide berth; the large eastern field and Darby-Paoli Road are also off-limits (and should not be tempting in terms of route selection--both of these will be marked on your map). Orange, Brown, and Green will all have potential fallen log/water crossings, but the courses have been designed to make these optional, so please be safe and use your best judgment. Also pay attention to crossed lines and control placement on the Green map--the out-of-bounds field and smallish area of the park means we've had to use the map in creative ways.
