postheadericon 2020 Vision Rogaine

  • NEWS FLASH: A no-flame electric BBQ has been organised, so there will be a sausage sizzle!
  • This event is to be held approximately 90 km south east of Perth in the Darling Range, in a bushland area that some of us old rogainers may be familiar with. It's an easy drive down the Brookton highway about 90 minutes from the city and just follow the Rogaine signs to the hash house. Take care on the unsealed roads there are some bumpy spots.

    The bushland has varying obstacles from thick bush short sharp gullies to broad open forest walking. Most of the controls are on good features and lots of controls are not too far from the hash house for new and social rogainers. There are some controls features that have been carefully chosen to reward and test the better navigators. The Hash House is positioned in the southern half of the course making route choice an interesting and easy for the social and a challenge if aiming for maximum points.

    Definitely no open fire of any sort, and camping is not allowed ( Dpaw rules.) There will be an electric BBQ saussage sizzle after the rogaine so prepare for some socialising!

    Control collectors will be needed so if night navigation skills need honing here's great opportunity.

    See you on the 7th March.
    Setters Paul & Jim
    Vetters Colin & John

postheadericon What is Rogaining?

Rogaining is the sport of long distance cross-country navigation in which teams of two to five members visit as many checkpoints as possible in twenty-four hours. Teams travel entirely on foot, navigating by map and compass between checkpoints in terrain that varies from open farmland to hilly forest. A central base camp provides hot meals throughout the event and teams may return at any time to eat, rest or sleep. Teams travel at their own pace and anyone from children to grandparents can experience the personal satisfaction that comes from cross-country navigation at their own level of competition and comfort.

postheadericon Volunteering:- your association needs you!

Volunteering is part and parcel of the culture of rogaining in WA. Unlike many other states, the WA rogaining association has been able to keep prices low and event quality high by the many members who every so often kindly forego an event to help out with administration, hash house, setting, vetting, first aid, or truck driving duties.

People step forward for the event roles usually in the last few weeks leading up to the event which is alway very much appreciated.
