The current plan is to meet at Mayo Cafe on Friday 20 May 2015 at 1810h (depart at 1820h sharp!) and carpool up to “Bryan east school house’ to camp there for the night (its free). The next day we would drive the rest of the way to Nackara.
If you’re looking for the ultimate test of human endurance then look no further. SA Rogaining is hosting the State Champs in Nackara, SA on 21-22 May. The AUMC is looking to send two teams for the event. If you are interested please sign up for more info. Entries close 6th May!
From SA Rogaining:
“Rogaining is the sport of long distance cross-country navigation in which teams of two to five members visit hidden checkpoints within a defined time period. 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 (the “Hash House”) 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. One feature of rogaining is the opportunity for night navigation and the extra challenges that this involves. The classic rogaine is a 24 hour event.
“Once the event has started, where you go and how fast you get there is entirely up to you and your team. Seriously competitive teams may cover 100km in a 24 hour event while social, casual and family groups may walk one or two short loops and achieve just as much satisfaction. The enjoyment comes from finding your way around a course that you have chosen and navigating back to the finish.”
Bookings are closed for this event.
