Thanks to our past and present NSWRA committee members

14th World Rogaining Championships
Alice Springs - 23 & 24 July 2016
The Australian Rogaining Association has been awarded the right to host the 14th World Rogaining Championships in 2016 (14WRC2016).
Details of the ARA’s proposal to host this event can be found here.
While this event provides a unique opportunity for local rogainers to compete in a WRC close to home and in (relatively) familiar terrain, entries will be limited by number and a complex set of rules.
Read about the entry criteria here.

- Equipment needed.
- How to prepare.
- What happens when you get there.
- What happens on the course.

Hiding away in our Books Section is a rather large PDF file published by the Victorians which answers these questions. It is well worth taking the time to download a copy.
BWRS remote first aid
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 Bushwalkers Wilderness Rescue Squad - 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!
