postheadericon Skywalker 10hr Rogaine - May the 4th 2024

The May event will be a 10 hour event, with no camping, going from 10am to 8pm. It is within an hour drive of Perth.

Entries are open and will close the Sunday midnight 6 days prior to the event. (We can leave entries open closer to the date when we're not running a full HH food order).

The setters will need collecting controls on the Sunday after the event. Please email setter Dave Smith if you are able to help at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

From the setters:

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... well not too far from the SE edge of Perth actually.

Rogaining Jedi Masters, join us for this May the 4th Rogaine. *

The hash house site is nicely nestled into the bush – although competitors won't be able to camp overnight unfortunately, as it is entirely in a water catchment area. Due to the limited parking space, please leave trailers at home, and consider travelling with others. Drive in, do the rogaine and drive out again (unless you are helping collect controls next morning).

The course is all in bushland with an A3 map at 1:50,000. There are plenty of controls within a reachable distance for beginners and families. If you find some of the controls are hard to get to, perhaps 'These aren't the controls you're looking for'.

Or are you the Rogaining Jedi Master who could make the run in less than 12 parsecs? If so, there are further opportunities for more ambitious rogainers; controls are set up to 500 metres above sea level – great view if you can get to the high ground.

Though rogainers don't usually hope for rain – the catchment hasn't caught any rain for a while and is looking parched. While setting the course, we saw a range of wildlife – kangaroos, emus and (just one) dugite. The bush isn't too thick if creek beds and swamps don't count! Lots of roads and tracks in various stages of disrepair. There is something for everyone.

Do, or do not. There is no 'try'.

*Spot the shameless Star Wars references
