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.

Due to the reduced numbers of people stepping forward to do their bit in recent times, there is a real danger of having to undertake drastic measures such as having to reduce the variety of food available at events, and of having to limit hash house (food tent) opening times.

postheadericon Emu's Run 1 November 2014

Those who have rogained for a while
Will remember his style
He has returned from the East
Without his great beast
The Old Man Emu himself
Vince Harding one off the shelf
The man who claims rogaining is fun
Agreed to show how it is done
Emu's Run is the result
Hope it's not an insult
As he guided us through
The the controls are all true
Easy to find
Unless one is blind
So come on down
You are unlikely to drown
And even if you are not great
The Hash House will still fill your plate! (Stan Barclay)

Come & join us in the hills one hour east of Perth. The gentle rolling terrain is in open Wandoo forest, interesting rock formations, with no farmland or parrot bush and lots of wildflowers and grass trees to view along way. There are defined features for everyone to enjoy and subtle and challenging ones set for the guns to complete. Whilst setting we discovered 3 large emu nests each having 10 eggs so you should have many emu chicks to accompany you. A large flat hash house area is set in the bush. We will have put out 6 water drops but as it is a November rogaine, be sure to start with sufficient water. Please join us for the Friday night banter with byo - everything or come earlier & help set up. An extra pair of hands is always helpful.

They are available for those Rogainers that achieve the points milestones in bush Rogaines:
Then why not go to and place your order now.
