|2nd and 3rd September 2006|
On the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd of September, the ACT Rogaining Association is running a navigational workshop for women. The workshop will run over two days and combine theoretical sessions with practical experience in terrain. The first day will be held at Sports House, 100 Maitland St, Hackett(Canberra CBD, Yellow Pages ref: Map 40 C5) and adjacent Mt Majura/Mt Ainslie Reserve. The night navigation session will be run in the Black Mt Reserve. The second day will take place at Mulligan's Flat, just outside Gunghalin on Gundaroo Rd. It is around 20 minutes drive from Canberra CBD. Champion rogainers Emma Murray, Alina McMaster and Julie Quinn will be amongst the instructors passing on skills, tips and tactics on topics such as following compass bearings, interpreting topographic features, calculating distance, route planning, what to carry and other useful information. With a number of instructors present, we expect that all levels of rogainers will improve their skills. The registration fee includes lunch and afternoon tea on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday evening there will be a workshop dinner, held at the Turkish Pide House, Jamison (close to Black Mt Reserve) which will cost $25 per head. The workshop is supported by a Sport & Recreation ACT women's development grant.
