I've posted pictures from the 2021 Mid-Atlantic Championships at Fair HIll, here:

2021 Mid-Atlantic Orienteering Championships

Note that these are mostly focused on QOC members exchanging during the relay. I may stitch together some video and post that at a later time.

Though I didn't run the relay, it was fun watching it! Thanks go to Tom Overbaugh (setter) and the DVOA club members. QOC won the relay but only by about 30 seconds! On the third leg, an injured Jon Torrance held off Sergei Ryzhkov. Sergei made up about 6 minutes on Jon's time. QOC didn't have a bus this year so the club didn't get any points in the beginner and intermediate courses. That gave DVOA the edge for the Broken Compass Award.

Hopefully the bus can be back in action next year! While it works against us, it oozes style. I respect that!!

I assume Torrance scored extra points for wearing that sharp O-top.?
What is the story of the guy coming in after all the group photos have been taken?
There is almost nothing as good as orienteering in mid-Atlantic woods in November.

We'll take extra points if we can get them :). Jan Merka had come in after things were breaking-up. He was running 3rd leg. I'm not sure who his teammates were that day but Jan navigates pretty well.

I did put together and just now have posted a choppy video, made up of clips captured while taking relay photos with an iPhone--an IPhone configuration does that in the background. I hadn't intended to cover the whole race but with the clips, I had just enough. 2021_MidAtlanticOrienteeringChamps_HD1080_H.264

The black rectangle is really the video, just click on it! (It's safe :-)
