It is with great sadness that we inform all competitors that the NSW Championships at Gundabooka on 24-25th September have been cancelled. This is due to road closures from rain, with more expected in the days before the event.
Bourke Council have closed the access roads, and NPWS have closed the Park itself.
All competitors will be reimbursed their full entry fees via the payment method they made when they registered. Team captains, please convey this message to your team.
If you want to be this year’s NSW Champion you will need to travel. The 2022 NSW Championship will be held at Gundabooka National Park, which is about 70kms south of Bourke.
This is a fantastic opportunity to rogaine and visit country that will be unfamiliar to most of us. Those making the effort to get to this event will be rewarded with an experience they will remember the rest of their life.
It is recommended that visitors spend some time around Bourke, Cobar & Brewarrina which are all quite interesting. The Darling, aboriginal history pre and post white settlement, Kidman Way (cattle/sheep), agriculture, irrigation, mining and not forgetting the wildlife. There is quite a spectacular rock art site not far from the hash house, an old gold mining area in the park, as well as station homesteads. The drive along Yanda Ck to the Darling campsite is worth the trip. Bring the fishing rod (and permit), or kayak/canoe.
Like most NSW Champs events there will be the 24 hour championship event and and a non-championship 8 hour event.
Keep coming back here as there will be more updates coming. At this stage there won’t be catering at this event.
