ACT Champs and 8 Hr POSTPONED to 7-8 November

SpringCreekDBIt has been very wet this week and with more rain forecast between now and Sunday the creeks on the course are very high and are potentially dangerous to cross. We also have a high risk of not being able to access most of the course to put out water drops and do the safety patrols. The photo shows Spring Creek with a low flow.

We have permission to run the events on November 7-8 - next weekend.

We understand that not everyone will be able to come next weekend. If that is the case we will refund your entry. Please contact Julie.

Apologies that you will miss out this weekend, but fingers crossed for fine weather next weekend.

"Back to the Bay" rogaine is cancelled (again)

We sadly announce the "Back to the Bay" rogaine is cancelled.

Just when we were all starting to get excited about a trip to the coast, public health advice in NSW around community sport just issued states "Cease activities that result in the mixing of participants and staff from different regions" for at least the next 6 weeks.

We hope to be able to reschedule this event some time in the future.

ACT Champs and 8 hr: 31 October - 1 November 2020

Terrain15The ACT Rogaining Champs (24 hr) and 8 hr events are on in Yanununbeyan National Park and State Conservation Area. This is an area of unburnt open forest over a range of hills between Queanbeyan and Captains Flat south-east of Canberra. The bush looks great after the rain and there are lots of happy, noisy frogs in the watercourses. The setters have been finding lots of spring flowers and hopefully some will still be around by the end of the month.

Armchair setter Ron Simpson - from Norway - has set a good course and passed this over to David Baldwin and Julie Quinn to ensure the flags are out and the Hash House organised for you. To ensure a covid-safe event there will be a few small changes around the Hash House and we will be reminding you about social distancing. The 8 hour event will start at 1PM and run to 9PM, while the 24 hour will be noon till noon as usual. Hartley are allowed to put on a feed for you but we won't be having presentations. Entries are open.

Last Chance to Enter Kowen Forest Rogaine

LAST CHANCE - just over 24 hours left (until 11.59pm Thursday) to enter the night event for the Kowen Forest rogaine on Saturday 15 August. NB ANU students: as IB has now been cancelled 😟 you may enter the night event if you want to (within our 100 person limit). Thanks to the nearly 100 people who have already entered on Sunday for the foot or cycle events - entries are now closed for that day. Final instructions are available from the event website this evening. As you can see from the attached photos you can expect it to be a bit wet under foot/tyre this weekend, so plan your wet weather gear appropriately. (Photos also give an indication of the COVID-safe contactless navlight mounting arrangement.) Everyone else: stay tuned for more information about a MapRun option once the event finishes on Sunday.
