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.

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.

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.
