postheadericon Covid19 April Update

As the Covid19 situation continues, the WARA Management Committee has recently met to collect and confirm directives, instructions and advice from the various stake holders and experts around us.

The situation is still evolving, but thankfully the pace of change has slowed somewhat - enabling more sense to be made of many of the intricacies. The primary directive is to keep our members healthy and well - limiting the potential of spread of the virus is still the highest priority.

The most significant instructions that affect our events / decisions are

- New Approvals through Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) have been put on hold until the end of June.
- Existing approvals have been revoked.
- Recreational Regional travel restrictions across WA are in place now and look like being maintained into the near future.

Therefore for all those reasons, we have no other option than to cancel the following events:
- 2nd May 12 hr event
- 22nd-24th May Dryandra training weekend
- 6-7th June Winter 24hr event

We are exploring options and innovative ways to alter event execution so that Rogaining can resume as soon as possible while staying Covid19 compliant.
We want to run our events, but keeping our members safe is more important.

On a personal note, I ask you all to look out for each other - to stay fit, healthy, happy and connected during this unusual sojourn. One way is to reach out to those you may normally only see at a Rogaine event, and help each other keep up regular routines and good mental health. I'd encourage you all to continue exercising within the existing government guidelines and if you need, or you know someone who needs, extra help at this time - please share the responsibility and make sure they get it.

The committee maintains an optimistic approach to planned events later in the year, and will keep members up to date through the email, facebook and web page.

Keep safe and well.

 

Warm Regards

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.

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 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?
Did you know that there are points achievement badges available for purchase from WARA?

They are available for those Rogainers that achieve the points milestones in bush rogaines of 3000, 2500, 2000, 1500, 1000, or 500 points:
