postheadericon Grand "Dad's Army" Rogaine - 6 and 7 June 1988.

It's time to clean your boots and pack your kit bags for the grandaddy event of the year - the 24 hour WA State Championships on June 6/7th.

There's lots of controls and lots of points on offer (max 3750) so even if you don't win a trophy, you can aim for a 1000 or 2000 point badge. For the more social teams the Hash House is located in a lovely sheltered farmland area on the edge of the forest with plenty of tracks and valuable controls within reach to tempt you out.

After several farmland events this year, its back to the forest for 80% of the area which is about 1 hours drive from Midland. So forget the sheep and cows and fences and spot the kangaroos, emus and parrots. The forest is generally open and undulating but with some steeper valleys and patches of parrot bush to tickle your fancy and test your navigation. To add a bit of interest, your setters David Muir and Jacqueline McManus have even negotiated with the army to use some of their forest training area so we hope a few army teams will put their training to the test! But don't tell your partner to "get lost" in this area else he/she may be shot!
This rogaine has something for everyone and deciding your route will not be easy. Your easiest decision is to enter now.

For those who have trophies from last year its time to return them or defend them. David and Jacqui have two trophies to return so will be running a book at the HH on which teams will get the boots this year!

Bonne chance, bonne sante et bon appetit.
