Terminology There aren’t many rogaines happening at the moment, so here is a NSW Rogaine Questionnaire to get you into a rogaine ‘headspace’ that will help organizers, to better understand the level of rogaine ‘literacy’ within the rogaine community, and plan enjoyable events, Email (optional) if you want us to send you a copy of your results. Otherwise you can see them at the end of the quiz. We will not save this email address or use it for any other purpose. (1 Points) The ‘thing’ you use to prove you have made it to the flag is the: Flag Laser Navlight Tag SI Unit Control card(1 Point) The point marked in the centre of the control/checkpoint circle on the map always marks the precise location of the flag. True False(1 Points) "A" knoll implies the flag is placed on: One of several knolls within the circle marked on the map A knoll that is there but too small to show on the map A knoll that is recognisable on the map A feature that is not actually a knoll(1 Points) "The" knoll implies the control flag is placed on: One of several knolls within the circle marked on the map A knoll that is there but too small to be shown on the map but is actually there A knoll that is a feature that is recognisable on the map A feature that is not actually a knoll(1 Point) Which of the following is correct? ‘Watercourse’ is the correct term for a ‘creek’ ‘Watercourse’ is the correct term for a ‘stream’ ‘Watercourse’ is the correct term for a ‘river’ Watercourses are marked as blue lines A blue line doesn’t always mean water, or even a defined channel, will be present, but indicates where water would flow All of the above(1 Point) A gully: Is always shown as a ‘blue’ line on a map Never appears as a ‘blue’ line on a map May or may not be where a ‘blue’ line is drawn on the map(1 Point) A knoll is: The highest point on the map The top of small hill or mound Only found on a ridge Only found on a spur The smaller of two or more hills(1 Point) A spur: A sloping ridge Is an alternative description for a ‘ridge’ Is the high point of a ridge The side of a ridge(1 Point) A ridge: Always ends at a river/creek/gully/water course Sometimes ends at a river/creek/gully/water course Is an alternative description for a ‘spur’ Is a line of high ground such as the spine of a mountain range joining knolls and saddles(1 Point) Using the term ‘cliff’ implies: It is always a feature drawn on the map It is not always a feature drawn on the map It is never drawn on the map.(1 Point) The term ‘cliff’ is: A feature that is at least 5m high A feature that is at least 10m high A feature that has no defined height but assumes you will not be able to climb A feature you will be disqualified if you attempt to climbe(1 Point) A saddle: Is the low point between two high points Is only located along a ridge is the low point within an otherwise flat field is the high point within an otherwise flat field(1 Point) An ‘attack point’: Is a feature to aim for on the route to the chekpoint that is directly in line with the checkpoint/control Is an obvious feature beyond control that can be used to notice you have gone too far Is an obvious feature on the way to the control that can be used as a waypoint for navigation(1 Point) A "catching feature' Is a feature to aim for that is directly in line with the checkpoint/control Is an obvious feature beyond control that can be used to notice you have gone too far Is an obvious feature on the way to the control that can be used as a waypoint for navigation(1 Point) An ‘attack point’ and a ‘catching feature’ can both be useful for navigating to a checkpoint/control. True False(1 Point) What is the origin of the name "Rogaine"? Acronym for "Rugged Outdoor Group Activity Involving Navigation and Endurance" Derived from Zulu word for "Long Distance Hunt" Derived from the three founders' names ROd, GAIl and NEIl Named after the hair regrowth product becuase such a draining sport makes you lose all your hair(0 Points) How many rogaines have you done? 1-5 6-20 21-50 50+(0 Points) How many years ago did you start rogaining? 1-2 3-5 6-10 11-15 15-25 >25(0 Points) The feature I typically like the least because it tends to be difficult to find is a: Saddle Cliff Gully Spur Knoll Ridge HH ☺ Shallow gully(0 Points) Given the range of rogaine terminology that exists, it would be useful to have a glossary provided with each rogaine event. Yes No(0 Points) What do you call the location of the circle on the map? The checkpoint The control The flag The control point All of the above(0 Points) In addition to using a compass when I navigate I typically: Count steps to approximate how far I have travelled Time my walking so I can approximate how far I have travelled Count steps and time my walking so I can approximate how far I have travelled Rarely count steps or time my walking(0 Points) I have not previously paced out (or have forgotten) how many steps I take to move 100 m, so if rogaines had a 100 m distance marked, I would find that useful Yes No(0 Points) A rogaine that included a checkpoint/control that was not marked on the map and provided ‘bonus’ points if you happened to find it would be: A fun idea Not a good idea Ok if it was not worth ‘too many’ points I don’t care(0 Points) Orange clothing should be banned so rogainers can’t be confused with flags: Yes No(0 Points) Would you like to have a small "dot" inside the circle marking the exact location of the flag? Yes, it helps specify the exact location of the flag No, it obscures essential detail(0 Points) To make it fair for a night time event, only one type of headlamp should be allowed. Agree Disagree(0 Points) I would like rogaines to: Be consistent between events so I know what to expect and I can more easily manage a course safely Have a bit of creativity between events so that it adds to the excitement and I encounter new challengesTime is Up!
