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.

September 2014 Newsletter
In this issue:
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.

Emu's Run 1 November 2014
Those who have rogained for a while
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.

Are you proud of your rogaining achievements?
Do you sometimes feel you want to let everyone know what you've achieved, and are looking for a more subtle way then shouting it from the rooftops?

They are available for those Rogainers that achieve the points milestones in bush Rogaines:
