The hash house for this years event was at The Old Mill Picnic Area in the Watagan Mountains 2 hours north of Sydney. The area used was mostly in the Olney State Forest with beautiful rainforest, pristine creeks, friendly fauna and an extensive track network. The tracks gave competitors the option of avoiding the somewhat difficult navigation through dense vegetation.

- Equipment needed.
- How to prepare.

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!
