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 The Wunder Bin 24 Hour Rogaine

The course selected for this year's State Championships promises to rekindle some fond memories. Tasked with plugging a vacancy in the setting of the highlight event of the year (no one else had volunteered to set), we looked into the Wunder Bin of past rogaines and recycled an oldie but a goody with a few differences.

This year's state champs will see us all trek east along Great Southern Highway to waddle around the upper reaches of the Helena River (and WunderBiniring Brook) and scramble over the top of them small hillocks curiously called Mounts.

You will soon enough recall the last time you were in the area and appreciate what a great experience we are about to serve you with. As Paul the Prez reminds me, "It is a State Champs after all. Let's make it fun!"

So come join Paul, Brian, Nick and me and we can reminisce over your fondest rogaine survival memories. It could turn out to be therapeutic.

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.
