October 28

While the following event is not hosted by QOC, we encourage orienteers to attend this annual event hosted by our neighbor O'club to the north, SVO.

The Susquehanna Stumble is a Billygoat-inspired event with a couple of twists. The competitors run between most controls in normal sequential order, but occasionally enter a "window" where there are several controls which can be visited in ANY order.

WHERE: Pine Grove Furnace State Park, Cooke, PA

WHEN: Mass start at 11:00, Sunday, October 28, 2018

WHAT: The Long-Stumble event will be ~14 km in length, with commemorative towel for the first 25 (or more if available) finishers.

The Short-Stumble will be ~7 km with commemorative towels for the first 20 (or more if available) finishers.

The course setter is Mike Bertram; the meet director is Brad Whitmore.

There will also be white, yellow, and orange recreational courses with Jacob Moore as the course setter.

COST: $ 25 for the Long-Stumble, $ 18 for the Short-Stumble, 5 $ for recreational courses.

REGISTRATION: Send E-MAIL to whitmore@stsci.edu AND TELL HIM WHETHER YOU ARE DOING THE SHORT OR LONG COURSE by OCTOBER 25. PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR E-PUNCH NUMBER IN THE EMAIL so we can get these entered ahead of time. You can then pay at the event. Morning-of-event registration is also ok but an additional $ 5 will be added to the fee.
