The ACT Rogaining Association Annual General Meeting will be held at approximately 4 pm at Kindovale on 20 March 2016. This will follow the 2016 Paddy Pallin 6 hr event and instructions as to how to get to Kindovale will be posted with the final instructions to the rogaine.
The ACTRA Committee is putting forward a motion to amend the Association's constitution. This is to make necessary changes to align with current ACT legislative requirements. Details are contained in the attached explanatory document, proposed amended constitution, and proposed amended constitution with "track changes". The current constitution is on the documents web page.
Attached here is the Agenda for the AGM; 2015 AGM minutes; Audited accounts (to come); and President's report.
Please contact Julie if you wish to discuss any of this prior to the meeting, if you are interested in nominating someone/yourself for a committee position, or wish to propose other business for the meeting.
We got the year off to a great start last Saturday with our twilight event. A strong and deep list of teams participated, with Martin Dent and rogaining novice Mark Bourne taking out the honours. Six teams cleared the course, with Martin and Mark first home in 2 hours 20 minutes. Full results are here.
Many thanks to Dane Roberts, Tom Banks and all the other volunteers who made this event happen. Our thanks also to the Kama Scouts for their catering and the use of the hall as hash house. And thank you, too, for participating.
If you have any photos of the event, we would love to post them on our smugmug page. If you can provide photos, please contact Jonathan.
Our eyes now turn to the Paddy Pallin event on 20 March. More information coming soon on that.

6 February: 3.5 hour Twilight event: entries NOW OPEN!
Okay, everyone, we have all enjoyed a break over Christmas-New Year. We have stretched out, yawned and slept in. We may even have a little more condition on the waistline.
Well, enough already!
Time to register for the first rogaine of the year. I just might have said it before, but the 3.5 hour twilight event on Saturday 6 February (5-8.30 pm) is going to be an absolute cracker!
The hash house in Macquarie will give access to the wonderful surrounding bush on Black Mountain and Mt Painter.
So, dust off your compasses, stretch your gastrocs and find your partners! Register at the link on the right of this page.

POSTPONED - END OF YEAR BBQ
We have decided to postpone the End of Year BBQ that we had scheduled for next Sunday at Weston Park. The weather forecast is too hot to be pleasant so we will do something else towards the end of summer.
Wishing you all seasons greetings and hope to see you in February instead.

Spring in Bond00
Spring was the weather for rogainers in the Bondo State Forest with a thunderstorm in the middle of the 6 hr event. Fortunately, the sun had come out again by 5 pm so the 12 hr teams had a dry evening. A great course was set by Laure, Pierre-Dominique, Kieran, Clare, Aaron, Dane, Jean and Ron taking in the wonderful eucalypt forest complete with large trees, wombat holes, lyrebird mounds and flowing creeks. Congratulations to 6 hr winners Tess Noble and Jackson Bursill and 12 hr winners David Baldwin and Julie Quinn. Category winners and navlight routes are on the event page.
Control collectors are needed. Please contact Dane if you can help.
