Vale Geoff Mercer

It is with great sadness that we inform the ACTRA rogaining community of the passing on Saturday (12th April) afternoon of Geoff Mercer.

Geoff was a passionate rogainer through the 1990’s and early 2000’s.  He was a life member of ACTRA and President for many years.  He also served the Australian Rogaining Association as Secretary, and was the organizer and course setter of the 2002 Australian Rogaining Championships.  Geoff’s involvement in ACTRA established many of the ways we do things in our association and was a great source of wise counsel and thoughtful guidance for many people both competing and organizing events.

2014 ACT Rogaining Champs and 8 hr event

2014_ACT_Champs_-_Crossing_Murrumbidgee_1.pngThe Long Plain-gaine featured the high country of the northern Kosciusko National Park with open plains, and black sallee and snowgum forests. Lots of rain in the previous week and the night before raised the level of the Murumbidgee River so that many teams got more than just their feet wet crossing. Competitors took in the relatively recent history of the high country through four old huts on the course and hundreds of brumbies. Many smiling faces at the end of the event from our 5 year olds through to the supervets showed that the country had performed it's magic on competitors as well as the course setters.

2014 Paddy Pallin Wrap Up

Close to 500 people enjoyed a glorious day at Yankee Hat in Namadgi National Park for the ‘Yankee Hatagaine’, the 2014 Paddy Pallin 6hr Rogaine on Sunday 2 March. Numbers were boosted by the large contingent of ANU students preparing for the upcoming Inward Bound challenge.

With only a few clouds in the sky competitors planned their routes choosing the more open northern section, the bush in the south – or a mixture of the two! Plenty of wildlife was spotted – lizards galore, eagles and kangaroos with more than a few snakes out and about. One team even claimed they couldn't punch control 62 because there was a big snake at the control. They took a photo to prove they had been there!

February Twilight Rogaine Wrap-up

The twilight rogaine at Stromlo on 13 February was another great event for ACTRA. The weather was perfect with some kind cloud cover providing some relief from the recent heat. Stromlo was its usual buzz of activity with mountain bikes, criterion racing and 150 rogaining participants. Thanks to Rachel and Wayne Gregson for setting a great course with the perfect length with one team clearing it in just over 2 and 3/4 hours. There were lots of smiles at the end which couldn't only be based on the great catering effort! It was a big volunteer effort with the catering; a big thank you goes to Jenny Arnold, Sal Ozgul and Camilla Brent as well as Wayne and Rachel for all the help on the day. Congratulations to all the category winners and to Damiano Luzzi and Andrew Barnett (pictured), our overall winners with 1680 points.

Results are now available.
