Here at the NSWRA committee, we are often pondering over whether we have too many shorter and/or urban events – compared to longer and more distant bush events, or whether we should even be having *more* of them, since they seem to attract larger fields.
We do have a general underlying preference for the bush events, because they get us out into the places that we wouldn’t get to go to otherwise (and the Goulburn river area was an absolutely superb example of that!) – and because there is a larger chance of seeing a wombat, but maybe we are biased…!
What do you think?

Great to have the ‘legends’ category in the forthcoming metrogain.
Will provide encouragement and perhaps a laugh to us senior baby boomers – there’s lots coming after the 46’ers!!

hi Guys, i much prefer the bush events and the ones that are longer and have a night nav aspect. For me, the sweet spot are the 12 hour events.
The urban / citi events are a bit boring and i prefer to skip them mostly because if i’m allocating a day of my weekend to come out, a 3 hour event isn’t long enough and the nav itself isnt very challenging.
i would prefer to see at least a 6-12 hour event once a month and than the 24hour events every 3rd month.
know its a bucket load of work organising and getting volies in to help out, but really appreciate all the hard work and effort that goes into them. it’s the one thing i look forward to each month

Being a newbie, I like the shorter events and have loved the urban events! 3 and 6 hour events work for me…so I think you have a pretty good balance going!
