This is a call for interest for people who would like to know more about the sport of Rogaining.

Rogaining is the sport of long distance cross-country navigation, in which teams of two to five people navigate using compass and map to find as many checkpoints as they wish in a set time period. It's a fun event no matter you are experienced bushwalker, outdoor enthusiast, ultra-marathon runner, or just want to wander around the bush and see some places that you otherwise wouldn't see.

Different from the usual 6-24h games, Minigaine is a shorter event suitable for beginners who wish to brush up their navigational skills before attending longer events. That being said, experienced walkers are more than welcomed to join and share some tips.

The event will be held at Cronulla this year. The place should be accessible by public transport.

Previous navigation skill, or attendance at Ashley's Navigation course the week before is highly recommended as the whole game is based on your ability in reading maps and using compass. I can give you some tips on the day if you are not too sure about what to do.

The event is organised by NSW Rogaine association. Please check the link below for more details about the event:

The entry fee is $35 for adults and $25 for students. You will get a free map and free snacks (possibly meals as well) on the day of the event. Please pay through the NSW Rogaine website when you register for the entry.

Signing up to the trip does not guarantee you a place in the event. Only sign up if you wish to participate in a team with other SUBW members. I will set up a spreadsheet for organizing teams, and you are responsible to communicate with your team members, nominate a team leader(if necessary) and to pay for your own entry through the NSW Rogaine website before Monday 3 April. I will be at the event on the day but I may not be in the same team with you. Alternatively if you already got someone in your mind you can organize your own team, or for this event only, enter as a solo participant. In this case, please enter directly through the NSW Rogaine website.

Please email me if you have any questions.
