O-2-Go Rogaine at Huatoki Sun 26th Aug

This rogaine was first used on 22nd Aug for the Get2Go teams. You have a chance to have your own 'O-2-Go' on Sunday 26th. 2 hour time limit, mass start at noon (but you can start later). The event goes both north and south from the car park so there are plenty of opportunities to savour the mud!
How to get to 'Go': From the narrow wooden sided road bridge on Huatoki St, drive into the south end of the Domain along the gravel road (Tupari Rd on the maps but look for the O sign). Park wisely as there are a number of horse floats at the end. Be aware of horse traffic, and orienteers running the access road.
** Bring elastic for the clip card, and a watch so you get back in time.**

Thanks everyone for coming today... We nearly got away with the weather.  Not many made it back from the prologue within the 10 minutes - no time for hesitation!  We'll try that again sometime.

We need volunteers for setters for the rogaine Spring Series starting late October. Please email Mike at otaranaki@gmail.com.  Setting is a great way to get to know the game from the other side... And we like to look after our setters!

Sun 12th Aug - Prologue Sprint then rogaine

This week's event is an urban rogaine starting from Kiwi Outdoors, but beginning with an exciting prologue sprint (on foot) of 10 minutes around the CBD then straight onto the rogaine (foot or bike).
Registration: 11:30am, Sprint starts 12 noon, Rogaine Start: 12:10  Finish: 2:10
Bike or foot, regular OT event prices (no presales).
This is a 2 hour event to give everyone a chance to extend themselves from the regular rogaine 90min time limit. The map is a great one set by Jason and Greg last year that wasn't well attended due to bad weather on the day. Cyclists will need to bring normal shoes for the sprint.
