Welcome to the Vulcan Orienteering Club (VOC)

Orienteering - The thinking sport

I came, I saw, I thought, I ran

The Vulcan Orienteering Club promotes orienteering in Alabama by hosting orienteering meets and training. The VOC is affiliated with Orienteering USA and is the only OUSA club in the state of Alabama.

The VOC hosts orienteering meets at Oak Mountain State Park in Pelham, AL (just south of Birmingham) and Wind Creek State Park in Alexander City, AL. We have a large portion of Oak Mountain's 9,940 acre park mapped with enough detail for advanced orienteering, which allows us to start in several different locations throughout the park to keep you from getting too acquainted with any one section of the park.

The VOC orienteering season runs from September through May each year. We typically host one meet each month (usually on the 3rd Saturday). All events are open to everyone and offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced courses, as well as free beginner instruction. There is a nominal fee of $5 per map. Most of our local meets also use electronic punching, for which there is an additional $2 e-stick rental fee. Small groups may go out using a single map and e-stick (additional maps are $1 each).

Our orienteering meets are very informal and are primarily used to introduce people to the sport of orienteering and as practice for national USOF orienteering meets. You may enjoy it as a casual walk through the woods or a competitive run. To find out about the next VOC event, please check the VOC schedule.

To learn more about orienteering, please visit the orienteering and links sections of our site.

For more information about the Vulcan Orienteering Club, including membership, our newsgroup, and contact information, please visit the About VOC page.

The discount price for the Basic Orienteering Class has been extended to October 19th.

The class will be held at Turkey Creek Nature Preserve on October 24th, from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.

You get a compass and lunch and proceeds go to support orienteering activities at the preserve!
