We want to know who is in this picture and where it was taken and we need your help. On the far left is Robert Pallin (Paddy Pallin's son) and the far right is Gumby and next to him is a rather young John Barnes. We would like to know who else is in the photo and at which event or where is was taken.

If you think you know who else is in this photo or where it was taken then please drop the Webmaster a line.

Congratulations to Andy Macqueen who recognised the last image as Martin's Lookout as being the spot from which the photo was taken.

Rogainers with smart phones are encouraged to install the following app on their smart phones and carry them during events.

This Emergency+ app has been developed for Australia’s Triple Zero Awareness Working Group. When activated, the app displays current GPS coordinates. This knowledge could be very useful in a variety of rescue and support situations. No mobile coverage is required to display GPS coordinates.

The app is available in the app stores for Android, Apple and Windows devices.

Emergency+ App

Triple Zero (000) is Australia's primary emergency service number and should be used if urgent emergency assistance is required from either police, fire, or ambulance services.

Australia also has two secondary emergency service numbers that only work with particular technologies:

  • 112 is the GSM international standard emergency number which can only be dialled on a digital mobile phone (Some international model phones cannot dial "000").
  • 106 is the text-based emergency number for people who are deaf, or who have a hearing or speech impairment. This service operates using a textphone (TTY) or a computer with modem access.

BSAR remote first aid

Bush Search and Rescue

If you are keen to get some first aid skills, with a focus on remote area first aid, then you should check out the courses offered by the Bush Search and Rescue NSW - they run these courses that are, by all accounts, great.

Remember too that if you have been a major volunteer at a NSWRA event then you can claim $100 towards the cost of a first-aid course - like this one - rather than getting a free event entry!
