Schools Rogaines

Annual Schools, Scouts and Cadets Rogaining Championship

Each year we run a Rogaine set and organised with Secondary age juniors in mind.  We promote this event to Schools, Scouts & Cadets while it is also open to any under 18 group of friends with an interest in bush navigation.  Close in Checkpoints are set be easy for the less skilled teams while further out the Checkpoints will required more navigation skill to find.   While this event is specially promoted to schools, scouts and cadets, all our Rogaines are open to Schools, Scout and Cadets to enter and most have a 6 hour course option available. 

In 2019 we moved to an earlier date in May for a number of reasons including availability of people to Co-ordinate the event, weather is not as cold as the late June date we had been using and the date is no longer the first weekend of the school holidays for many private schools.

Entry Fees

$15 per person.

The Schools event registration opens at 8am for Map collection although a PDF copy of the event map is available to Group leaders upon request in the week before the event.  This allows teachers and leaders to spend more time explaining the map and allows teams to plan a course prior to event day.   

We ask teams to mark up their intended route on an intentions map and arrive early for team checking.  We check teams for knowledge of how to navigate, mandatory equipment and understanding of important rules before issuing their timing tags.  We may assign an experience Rogainer to travel with some teams that require assistance for some or all of the event.  

The event briefing is at 10:15am and event start at 10:30am.   All teams need to return by 3:30 pm where we provide BBQ, Soup and Stew style meal while winners are determined and announced.   There are perpetual trophies for the best Scout, Schools and Cadet Groups based on the best scoring 2 or 3 team from each school, patrol or regiment.
