Rogaining is an endurance sport, so you whether you compete hard or treat it as an opportunity to go for a wander some where new, you will get a lot of exercise.
You will learn new skills. Not only will you become proficient with a map and compass but you will learn route planning, time manageemnt and how to move through the bush with confidence.
Meet new and interesting people. Rogainers don't care what car you drive or what sort of work you do. Meet people who share a love of the outdoors and have a spirit of adventure.
In modern life we rarely, if ever, have to challenge ourselves. Rogainers challenge themselves and have a strength of will that they can translate to anything they do.
Rogainers work in a teams, often under difficult circumstances. Want to learn how to be part of a team, where you need to learn trust and depend on your team mates. Come Rogaining!
Rogainers are confident people. Rogainers have an inner strength that comes from pushing your self to the limit over many hours in both daylight and darkness. The confidence learned rogaining translates to everything you do.
Most people live in big cities and never venture far from their cars. Rogainers get to experience the Australian bush in all its beauty; pristine creeks, varied native landscapes, beautiful valleys, magnificent views and the occasional patch of fight scrub.
MEET THE volunteers
Our sport relies on people who volunteer. If we have no volunteers, we will have no events. Most people enjoy volunteering because they get to experience new places, new people and new activites without the pressure of competition.
This is your opportunity to make a difference to Rogaining. You don’t need to be an expert rogainer (or an expert in publicity for that matter), you just need to be able to roll up your sleeves and help promote rogaining is NSW. Some key activities will be:
Coordinate the preparation of a newsletter, currently sent a couple of weeks before each event.
Work out ways to promote rogaining as a sport
Join the Organising Committee and add value at the bi-monthly meetings
If you want to help out then message Trevor Gollan (NSW President). This is an unpaid, volunteer role, done for the love of our sport and the opportunity to make a difference.
