!!" Upside Down Rogaine-26/27 February 2005 The Good Night Rogaine The first rogaine of 2005 has something for everyone even if you are not a hardened night-time navigator. There is bush for the more experienced, hilly terrain in some parts for the super fit, and flatter, easy, open farmland for those wanting to have a go at night rogaining but who aren't yet confident enough to go too far into the bush in the dark (or maybe just don't like spiders). And of course we haven’t forgotten our much loved parrot bush and its close cousins. February 26/27 will be a good night to put your skills to the test! The event site is around an hour and a half on the way from Perth to York, where fortunately we met with some very friendly and enthusiastic farmers who were happy to have us rogaining on their land. With the site bedded down, we were really excited to get the digital data and start the armchair setting. Unfortunately, a few good night sleeps later, one of the setters, while navigating to work, was faced with a geographically challenged vehicle suddenly appearing on the road ahead, causing the only four wheel drive vehicle between the setting and vetting team to be written off. The setter received a broken sternum, not conducive to a good night's sleep. The setting and vetting team now had only three able bodies (but WHAT bodies!), with one setter long gone AWOL to work up north, and one no longer up to serious field work and desperately needing to avoid anything like grass and dust that might cause a sneeze. So why 'The Good Night Rogaine'? Well, 'Avoid the DRAma' was already taken... and because the injured setter should be better and getting good night sleeps again in time for the event (but maybe not be better enough to dig toilet holes!). Besides, how could it be anything but a good night when you're out in the warm, fresh night air, with your pack on, compass and map in hand, doing your favourite thing in the moonlight? We thought you'd agree! So make sure to get your team's entry in and we'll see you all out there for a good night of competition and fun. So it’s good night from:- Colette, Steve, John and Keith. On a serious note: naturally for rogainers, farmers and CALM alike, the potential for fire is a serious concern at this time of year, so as usual, as visitors to the site we rogainers must all take the proper precautions to make sure our presence doesn't increase the risk. Please make sure to read your event directions carefully for more info.

We made our route up as we went along, climbing up and down extremely steep and high hills. I was ruined by the time we got back to the hash house at around 1.00am. Despite this I knew I was going to do more rogaining. It made me motivated to increase my fitness, and the endurance and navigational challenge appealed to me, as did the challenge of improving my placing in the results list. Since then I introduced my husband, Steve, to rogaining, and we now both take our rogaining fairly seriously (we try hard anyway!). Early on we went to one of the weekend training courses where we picked up some great tips, had the opportunity to meet other relative I was introduced to rogaining over four years ago, by newcomers, some of the die hards and some of the Kevin Ho, one of the original rogainers who took part in WARA committee members. the first WA event and who was a colleague of mine at I was keen to find out more about what goes on behind the Chemistry Centre (WA) where I worked at the time. the scenes and also to get to know some more One lunch time, Kevin described rogaining to me and I rogainers.

Rogaining has meant that I have seen so keen to try orienteering too and went along to see what it many parts of WA that I would never have seen was all about.

More than (just) surviving the ordeal, I am still rogaining more than ten years later. I can’t say that I aspire to be in the top ten places, but that is one of the things that makes rogaining a really good sport to be involved in; whatever your goals you can still enjoy yourself without external pressures to perform. Rogaining is a great excuse to be tramping about in the bush as a competitor, and also gives the opportunity to be involved in things out of the everyday. By volunteering for such things as setting, administration, truck driving, and hash house, I got a very different perspective on what a rogaine actually is, and how much effort goes on behind the scenes by so many people.

WARA Newsletter - January 2005 Page 9 The Great Depression 6 hour + European Champs Info Welcome to The Great Depression, a time of hardship, struggles, and determination in the face of overwhelming odds. Fortunately, times will not be as tough on this event, as you traverse vast open farmland, climb the many hills, or perhaps take a dip in the Avon River, though the Depression has caused it to run a bit dry this year. Just a leisurely horse and cart ride northeast of Perth, this historical area offers many sites unexplored by regular tourists. Use your navigation abilities to take you to points of interest. Help the farmers plough their fields using 20th century tools (ploughing is optional). Follow the depressed sheep as they go about their daily activities. The choices are endless (warning – choices end after six hours). So if you’re up to the test, come on down on March 19 and take the challenge. See if you too can endure The Great Depression.

The lab would need around 20 PCs, and is only needed for one day on a weekend in July. The PCs don’t need to be the latest model, and don’t need to be networked together. It would be nice, but not essential if one PC had projection facilities for demonstration purposes. If you know of a PC lab that would fit the bill please contact Warren with the good news on 9342 9213 Page 12 WARA Newsletter - January 2005 Volunteers for 2005/2006 Rogaines Upside Down 12hr Autumn 6hr Autumn 12hr Winter 24hr Spring 24hr 26- 27th February 2005 19th March 2005 23rd April 2005 18-19th June 2005 20-21st August 2005 Setters Setters Setters Setters Setters Stephen Wolfe Jim Langford Owen Horton Stan Barclay Gary Carroll Colette Sims Ricky Thackray Brian Wade Pam Bradley Andrew Ivey Dave Hartley Vetters Vetters Vetters Vetters Vetters Keith Stewart Mark Dowley Dale Clemons David Muir Warren Smith John Cresp Paul Williams Lorraine Smith Ian Thomsett Dianne Challen Admin Admin Admin Admin Admin Doreen McAllan Chip Lundstrom (L) Rosalie McCauley Joan Merrifield Deb Dowson David McCauley John Herzfeld Enda&Daisy McCauley Alex Kitto Christine Howitt Pauline Kitto Rosemarie Horton Warren Smith Mal Dennett (FULL) (Total 7 Needed) (Total 7 Needed) (Total 8 Needed) (Total 8 Needed) First Aid First Aid First Aid First Aid First Aid Ian Thomsett Margaret Corlett ????? ????? ?????

Phone 9342 9213 A MEETING OF ALL VOLUNTEERS WILL BE HELD 2 TO 3 WEEKS BEFORE EACH ROGAINE Many thanks to those who have volunteered. WARA Newsletter - January 2005 Page 13 Volunteers’ Corner Here we go again for another year, volunteering “in turn” so that we all get to enjoy the pleasures of a walk in the bush. Did that read like a pun of some sort? I think it did. The recent, or should I say the last rogaine in October was another tremendous success both for Rogaining and our sponsor Mountain Designs. The crew from the south, the Elderfield, Bendotti and Barrett clan came up with the usual high standard we are used to. Crippled though she was, Deb Dowson was able to whip the admin crew in shape with another impressive performance of number crunching and quick results Paul Dowling, our Hash House coordinator thought that the last rogaine for the year would be a good opportunity to demonstrate to all future volunteers just how a hash house should be run and he did. Helen McCutcheon does not wish to see another tick for the rest of her life! The ticks were in abundance, all shapes and sizes and were found in “many varied places” ready for extraction. Whilst talking about First Aid, I need 4 more volunteers for the rest of the year, April, June, August and October. I have a new First Aid Coordinator for this year, (a Doctor), who will maintain the first aid kit for us, and in welcoming Paschal to the role I would like to express my thanks and gratefulness to Dianne Challen who has fulfilled this role for many years. Bryan McClintock and Sue Joyce handled the truck driving with panache and performed well in competition as well. Truck drivers are required for March, August and October next year. The following people deserve our thanks for their efforts at the last rogaine Admin - Jenny and Don Cooper, Sarah Wade, Glyn Kernick, Richard Lailey, Louise Smith and Carol Davis Hash House – Nari and Aaron Williams, Cassie Wade, Dale Clemons, Michelle and Allan Whitfield, Matt Hooper, Sara Thunder, David LaCava, Lorraine Clemons, Gisela Cannon and Terry Wilson WARA shop – Yvonne Smith You all make my role as volunteer coordinator such a pleasure, firstly, getting to know you and secondly, the ease with which you consistently come forward. Rogaining survives and is admired by other sporting associations for our participation rate in volunteering. I eagerly await you phone call or email ( I never miss an opportunity!!)
