postheadericon How to Rogaine, Successfully. The Seminar

Friday 25th (evening) to Sunday 27th May (morning) 2018

Our popular rogaining seminar weekend is back!


The weekend is an excellent opportunity for all rogainers, including newcomers, to develop their rogaining skills.
The seminar includes both talks and practice sessions introducing rogaining and focussing on navigation skills.
A night navigation exercise is included.
Exercises are in small groups each lead by an experienced rogainer, providing lots of opportunities for learning and improving skills.
The seminar is held at Dryandra Woodland Village, and WARA covers costs of the event and accommodation.
All are very welcome, including individual rogainers, couples, rogaine teams, and families.

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. As an added incentive to give up a rogaine and volunteer to help out, you will get free WARA membership the following year.

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 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 Canning Bridges 6hr - 10th March 2018

“Canning Bridges” 6hr Rogaine - Saturday 10th March 2018

Bridges, bridges and more bridges…… who would have thought out in the middle of the bush only 30mins from Armadale and in the headwaters of one of our iconic rivers would there so many remnants of bridges.

Enjoy a gentle meander through the undulating bush that was burnt a few years ago, so is now green and lush without an overload of ground cover…. Except around some watercourses! Quite a few tracks around the area will make it easy for novices and families and a few hills will make it competitive for the experts.   Enjoy walking some of WA’s iconic world famous walking track.

The Admin tent will be setup just off a wide gravel road that is only 10mins off Albany Hwy.

Maps will be available at 1pm, event starts at 3pm and will finish 6hrs later.

Join us on 10th March for a bridge sightseeing tour.
