    The 2018 DVOA Summer Picnic and Vice President’s Cup will be held Sunday June 10th at Fort Washington State Park.  The event center will be Pavilion #1 which is located adjacent to Parking Lot #1 in the Militia Hill section of the park - follow O-signs from the park entrance off Militia Hill Rd.  Registration will open at 10:00 am with a mass start fun relay beginning at 11:00 am. 

    A regular White Course (2.1 km) will also be offered from 10:00-12:00 for those not participating in the relay.  In an effort to balance teams for the relay, a point system will be used.  Official relay teams must have a minimum of 3 points.  Points are assigned as follows:

    1 point:  Junior (20 and younger)

    1 point:  Veteran (40 and older)

    1 point:  Female

    A single person can count for 2 points if they satisfy two of the criteria above.  If you know your relay team in advance, please send the information (names, point info) to toverbaugh at comcast dot net.  If you don’t have a relay team and would like us to assign you to a team, you can either email me your info ahead of time or let us know at registration the day of the event.  

    The Relay will be run in the following order:  White / Yellow / Brown.  If some people would  prefer to do the Yellow or Brown course apart from the relay, we will allow it but only after assuring there are adequate maps for all relay participants (meaning no individual Yellow or Brown starts until after the Relay mass start).

    Maps have been printed at 1:7,500 scale for improved readability.  Contour interval is 5 m.  Some updates were made to the map for this event but the map may still be showing its age in a few places.

    After the conclusion of the relay, we will have lunch in the pavilion.  Please bring a dish to share.  The club will provide grilled burgers, veggie burgers, and hot dogs.  After lunch, we will hold the annual summer meeting.  We anticipate starting the meeting around 2:00 pm.

    If you can spare some time to volunteer at the event, that would be great.  You can sign up from the link on the schedule page.
