2010 Australian Rogaining Championships

24 hour
Saturday 27th March 2010 12 noon - Sunday 12 noon

Course Description

The 2010 rogaining championships will be held in the magnificent Snowy Mountains and hosted by the ACT Rogaining Association. The course will be set by national rogaining champions, David Baldwin and Julie Quinn, and will provide excellent navigational challenges in a beautiful environment.

Terrain will vary from alpine ash forests, through snow gum woodlands and granite boulderfields, to open plains. The course will be between 1100m and 1600m elevation. Vegetation varies, but mostly fairly good going but some areas with post-fire regrowth. Mostly bush but some open native grasslands above tree line or in frost hollows. Few tracks. Old gold mining workings in some parts of the course.

Autumn in Kosciuszko typically provides superb clear days with cool evenings. The Hash House will offer ideal camping and there is caravan park and lodge accommodation within 5 minutes drive. Numbers will be strictly limited to a 525 maximum.

Driving times to the Hash House: 2 hours from Canberra, 5 hours from Sydney, and 7 hours from Melbourne.

Bus transport, merchandise and meals for Friday night and Saturday morning will be available to order. Please check back later or sign up to the e-mail newsletter to be informed.

Please include details of any dietary requirements (allergies, vegetarian, etc) in the "Note to Organiser" field on the entry form. The caterers have assured us EVERYONE will be catered for (including at the ANC if possible).

Australian competitors, please select your correct state of affiliation for the interstate pointscore trophy which is part of the Australian Championships. If you live in NSW, please select NSWRA not ACTRA and follow NSWRA membership policy instructions on 2010 NSWRA membership. Please ensure you have a current 2010 membership with your state association.

Overseas competitors (ONLY please) who cannot pay using BPAY, cheque or money order please select "Other" for payment, then after you have submitted the entry form and know your team number, go to the online shop and make a credit card payment under the Entry category with the matching number of full and concession members. Please enter "OTHER" for state association.

We strongly prefer Australian entries to pay using BPAY if possible because the bank fees are cheaper and payments are automatically applied which saves manual reconciliation. Team payments can easily be split - just forward the BPAY details to other team members and each person can pay their share using the same CRN.
