Saturday 15th June

6hr Rogaine             10am to 4pm using our standard format.       

Night 6hr Rogaine    6pm to Midnight 

 

Thank you Wayne for volunteering to Organising and set this event.

Course
Set 100% in State Forest.

You can Rogaine during the day or night, or both. The day and night Rogaines are the same course but different events like when we do a Saturday and Sunday 2x6hr Rogaine weekend.  You can enter both of them and even visit the same controls you visited during the day, again at night.   If you have never Rogained at night, this is an ideal first time opportunity.
See Special Arrangement below for details of how it will work.

Teams entering both Rogaines will be scored with all team for the daylight event however will not be scored with the 6hr only competitiors for the night event.  There will be separate results for the night 6hr and the completion of the Both event.

Map
Scale of 1:25,000 with 10 meter contours printed on non-water proof paper.  

Location
Located in the Ross Creek State Forest (Enfiled area) south of Ballarat. 

Special arrangements for competitors doing BOTH Rogaines:
In order to do BOTH rogaines, you need to enter your team in the 2x6 rogaine event. This is the THIRD event listed when using Online Entry. Please DO NOT enter in the day or the night event if you intend to do BOTH. The standard day or night events are for entrants only doing a SINGLE rogaine.

  • If you enter the double rogaine, your rogaine format will be at the same times as the day event with Admin opening at 8:00.
  • You are required to return to the Hash House at the Day Rogaine finish time, i.e. 16:00. You will lose 10 points for each minute you are late. If you are more than 30 minutes late, you forfeit all your day points and we will have to start a search for your team. You can still do the night rogaine but your overall score at the start of the night rogaine is zero.
  • When you finish your day rogaine, you will receive your interim rogaine score. You will hand back your navlight tags and receive new ones for the night event.
  • Teams doing the double rogaine are eligible to place alongside teams that are doing the day rogaine only. Your score at the conclusion of the day event is used for your day placing.
  • You may then have a meal at the Hash House and replan your course for the night event.
  • You will be required to attend THE NIGHT ROGAINE BRIEFING at 17:45. You will need to have your night navlight tags punched by the briefing punch. The earlier day briefing punch 8 hours earlier is not valid for your night rogaine.
  • Your team will need to provide a second trip intention sheet (flight plan) for the night rogaine when you enter the starting area for the night briefing.
  • During the night rogaine, you may visit and score any controls on the course. THIS INCLUDES controls that you have previously visited during the day.
  • Your finish time is at 24:00 and you lose 10 points per minute after this point and forfeit your entire score if you are more than 30 minutes late.
  • Your final rogaine score is the sum of your scores from both the day and the night rogaine.

During the time between the two rogaines, you may wish to change into fresh warm clothing. You may find that you get MUCH COLDER than normal given the 2 hours between the end of the first rogaine and the start of the second.

Accommodation
There will be bush camping at the Hash House.
