It's time to saddle up and enter the latest and greatest (OK - the second point is more contentious) rogaine to be offered by NSWRA - the 2009 State Champs, which are being held at a secret location about 3.5 hours drive west of Sydney on the (long) weekend of 3-4 October. As advertised on the web site http://www.nswrogaining.org/AboutEvents/Events/09NC/09NC.htm the terrain will be some of the best that NSW has to offer - it is entirely National Park native forest with little or no understory, has creeks with real running water and some fabulous river flats at the southern end of the course (even if you will only be admiring them in passing).
We are offering the full monty 24-hour championship option and also the "I like to spend a few hours by the campfire and not wander around the bush in the middle of the night" 15-in-24 hour option where you are forced to spend 9 of the 24-hour period back at the hash house - where you will be faced with the hardship of a roaring campfire and a non-stop supply of hot food from the 1st Waitara Scouts. The Scouts are also providing an all-night-cafe at a distant point on the course, to provide emergency cheese toasties, hot drinks and more to those hardy rogainers that are braving the night time.
As an additional incentive to the university students out there, we are introducing an Under-23 category so you undergraduates can pit yourselves against each other in a battle for rogaining supremacy!
Enter on line now on the event page and psyche yourself up for what we hope will be a cracking event!
