We need a wall!

Using these two sources of revenue I expect we should be able to fund our Wall in well less than a billion years and we will reap the benefits until the Sun destroys the earth shortly thereafter. Join our Protest I want … nay, expect… all NSW Rogainers to protest at the invasion of their precious and […]

For the last 57 years the Paddy Pallin organisation has combined with NSW Rogaining to put on a Rogaine. The Paddy Pallin rogaine is a special feature on the rogaining calendar since it is our most popular event and for the winners there are some good trophies to be won. For most of us who […]

Never Too Young for Lawyer Vine

You are never too young to experience the joys of lawyer vine which, after all, is an Australian native (Smilax australis) pest rather than an introduced one.

Congratulations and thanks to course setters Nicole and […]

My wrap of the “Woronora Pipe Dream” event.

A number of factors contributed to this enjoyment: The course was really good, there were a lot of bush controls. It certainly was a […]
