Certain events require specific fees such as $10 for bowling (to cover lunch) $5 for cycling (to cover cost of traffic control and electronic timing) $65 for golf (to cover greens fees, lunch and a golf cart) and $5 for orienteering (to cover compass rentals). The NVSO is also seeking volunteers to help facilitate at its venues throughout Northern Virginia. Those interested should contact RSVP Northern Virginia at 703-403-5360 or email RSVP at
