The next After Work Rogaine is next Thursday (13 Sept).
The start point is the verandah at The Pavilion Cafe, Williams Park, Days Bay.
***A basic first aid kit and a survival blanket or bag is cumpulsory for this event***
As part of the Greater Wellington Regional Councils concession which allows us to use their park they require all participants to carry a basic first aid kit and a survival blanket or bag. These are therefore required as compulsory equipment by all participants.
We also strongly recommend a compass. Some controls will have directional clues. It is hard to find a control 40m NNW of an obvious point if you only have a vague idea of where NNW is.
Most of the controls will be off road and some will be off track. There are a good number of tracks on the map with a few that have not been included on previous rogaine maps. The bush is a mixture of open beech forest, manuka, and other natives with patches of gorse and supplejack. Some stream travel will also be included.
Maps are available from 5:30pm, start time is 6pm and finish is 9pm
Register at www.mapsport.co.nz/wellyrog by 6pm on 11 Sept.
Planner: Sue Eastwood and Graeme Silcock
