The Annual General Meeting of the ACT Rogaining Association will be held on Sunday 7 March 2021, at approximately 4:45 pm, following the last finish of the Paddy Pallin 6 hour rogaine at South Durras Oval, South Coast, NSW.

An Agenda, Minutes from 2020, Audited Accounts and Presidents Report are here on the website. Please read and download your own copy for the meeting.

If you are interested in a Committee position (President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, 6-8 General Committee) and need further information, please contact Stephen Goggs or Julie Quinn. While not compulsory, it would be helpful to let Julie, who will chair the AGM, know if you intend to nominate yourself or someone else.

Murramurang NPKick off into 2021 with the Paddy Pallin 6 hour event to be held on Sunday 7 March at the South Coast around Durras and south with beaches and headlands to North Head on Batemans Bay and the beautiful forest in the hills.

It's the Canberra Day long weekend so grab the family or friends and plan a weekend away around the event.

We are hoping it will be third time lucky for this event after several COVID cancellations in 2021.

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.

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.
