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.

We are still looking for setters and vetters to join the setting/vetting team for the 6 hour rogaine to be held on March 19 2016.
The area for the event has already been selected, it is at the back of Karagullen in an area commonly known as Carinyah. We just need additional setters and/or vetters to join Ricky and Graham.

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.

I'm Not Carryin'yah Rogaine 19 March 2016
This year’s 6hr rogaine takes place very close to home, in the bushland out behind Pickering Brook in an area commonly known as Carinyah.
For those of you new to the area, there are LOADS of tracks to get confused on and, just for something different, they will all be on the map. Yes all! In fact due to the laziness of the setter (and the not-yet-permission issue), many of the controls will be on or near tracks just to make your life easier. Don’t think this means you can just walk tracks between the controls though. How silly; I’m not that nice. You should probably still bring a compass and your legs because I’m not carryin’ yah.
We also don’t really have a setting team so you’ll just have to rely on our honesty and awesomeness at control placement. Between Graham and me we have Many Years of rogaining experience so you should be AMAZED at this great event. So come for a short
p.s There is still time if you would like to join the sensational yet humble setting/vetting team.
p.p.s. There is a cidery just 1km from the start that’s open on Saturdays so seriously, no excuse.
