Wellington West 15 Oct 13

Course planner and Ann Kendon

Time 3 hours 45% dark. After wild weather, a nice though cool night. 108 participants.

Jo writes... Great turnout given the weather earlier in the day, nearly all the maps we printed were given out, with 108 people out on the night in 42 teams. And although we over catered on pizza, the last teams missed out - only take 2 pieces each please.

All ribbons stayed put after big storm, yay!! The top 5 teams all went to 70,80,81,82 &100, All controls were visited with 17 teams going to the 100 pointer. Hope you enjoyed the Otari Farm area west of the Skyline, which is not normally available.

Thanks to the teams who helped out with an injury. With so many people entering now we have to improve our system for confirming all teams are back, everyone was in by 9:22pm

Ian writes...
Great turnout given the weather forecast, all the maps we printed were given out. (Those who didn't pre-register might like to ponder on the possibility of a few more turning up:-))

Now - a safety issue. We thought we had a missing person but (a) the person had joined another team and (b) the phone number given was incorrect so we couldn't do the most obvious check. We take safety seriously, all teams (or solos) that start must report back. In fact rogaining is a team sport and solos are a limited exception, see the safety rules.

Teams who had claimed points from the cabbage tree (#71) but were unable to find the ribbon will not have these points included within their score (as a lot of teams did find the cabbage tree) and also the ribbon over the school fence, again a large number of teams did find this ribbon.

I've learnt a lot from this rogaine. The size of the area can look big on a map, however, when you complete the course, the area mass can be a lot smaller than you initially thought it would be. Hoever I think a lot of people were very happy that the course was shortened as the weather was getting colder and wet as the night wore on.

Elsdon 15 Aug 13

Course planner

Time 3hrs. 98% dark. Very pleasant evening with a light northerly. 57 participants.

Kelvin writes...
A cave, a really gnarly waterfall, an abandoned mental hospital and a wicked hill climb.

This course was deliberately designed to make it hard to choose the best route. There were several clusters of high points - two in particular were a waterfall tucked deep in Elsdon bush, and a second along the rocks and cliffs of Titahi Bay. They were both really tough to get to. Hey - if you wanted an easy sport - take up golf. Were the points on offer at these destinations enough reward?

Looking at the results, there was an even spread between the number of teams who chose to go bush, go beach, or go road. And even more intersting - the reaults for all 3 options were very similar. This excludes the result from the legendary Jamie Stewart, who took victory with 1008 points. Jamie took the waterfall route - describing the area as "Epic".

Another interesting observation: The walkers scores were comparable to the runners - showing how tough some of this terrain was.

Gracefield / Eastern Hills, 18 July 13

Course planner

Time 3hrs, 100% dark. Weather fine with a bit of a breeze; great views over the Hutt Valley, and a few bits of moonlight. 55 participants.

The planners comment... The highest control score on the night was Mark Hooker who scored 1260 points but the 10% penalty for being solo put him second behind Lightening Speed Robots with 1170 points. All controls got visited with No.63, the missing one near the bricks, and No.71, McStays seat, the most with 17 team visits. 55 & 56 on Leightons Gully track at the south side of Haywards Reserve only got one visit each.

The ribbon control at No.63 had been removed by someone prior to the event and the water tank high on the ridge at No.101 had lost its label sometime in the last 2 weeks so I awarded everyone who claimed them the points. I also gave the points to those who claimed No.35 as there was only a few who found the old trig even though many looked for it. Most of the tracks in the area have been made by volunteers; mainly Friends of Haywards Reserve and Wainui Trail Project ? thanks for your work ? much appreciated.

Thanks for coming and for not getting run over at the top of the hill. We hope we got you all to go somewhere you had never been before. A spread sheet with the final results and the controls visited is here

Mary writes...
After a slightly manic map distribution, where the clue sheets arrived late - we started calm and wet but not raining, but oh boy did it finish on a very wet note. Some of the sheets handed in were completely bedraggled and incomprehensible, as were the participants. Made me glad I'm not a teacher though, trying to wade through that on a regular basis where kids have given their homework to the dog!

There were a few confusing controls, and there were quite a few teams marked down, but there were enough correct answers to justify the marking down. The steps at no 36 had a variety of answers, some saw the barrels at no 56 and some didn't, and a few people spotted that I had actually written the answer in the clue sheet for 59. But not that many actually:-) The rocks at no 46 had several right answers so I marked the others wrong. I hope you got some of the great views I saw when I was setting it up, but in reality I think there was a lot of clag.

In future, please, can people only have 2 slices of pizza each. There was enough for 1/4 pizza for everyone, and lots of people didn't get any at the end.

And don't forget to . . . . . floss daily

Lowry, 21 May 13

Course planners Darryn Gordon and Mike Sherwin.

Time 3hrs. 100% Dark. Fine weather, 97 participants.

Darryn writes...
An extremely good turn out. We were also blessed with the weather being clear and still, which made it an outstanding night for Rogaining. Thanks to all of you that provided positive feedback about the course. We felt it was well balanced, providing options for those that preferred the road and easy navigation and also much more difficult controls for those that love bait lines and getting a bit more off-track. Bill Edwards won on the night, but was closely followed by the Lightning Speed Robots - who now have a good lead in the league.

There were some real talking points though, which it'd be remiss of us not to mention:

  • Controls 32 and 49 appeared to stump all competitors. Controls were put out with GPS, but given that no one got these we have awarded the points to everyone that tried to pick them up. Our punishment - a weekend trip's to check that ribbon and sign.
  • The private track had two controls contested by a very small number of teams - 33 and 60. Most teams found these controls and we are [GPS] confident they were in the right place.
  • Controls 90 and 100 were found by most teams, but not all. Given the importance of these to the final results, we have had to award the points to those teams that actually founds these controls.
  • 90 was on a very distinct point of the ridgeline track and the answer was '10'.
  • 100 was not 'skins', which was an old ribbon at the intersection of the track into the gully back to control 51. This ribbon for control 100 was 'Clay' and was further down this track; it was on the track and in the right position [GPS] meaning most teams got this.
Finally, you may be aware that we had a serious injury occur on the course last night. For us this highlighted a few things. Firstly, the spirit in the Rogaine community is exceptional. We had four teams withdraw themselves from the event to manage everyone's safety. These teams also stayed together until we were able to arrange a team of paramedics to get onto the Lowry Ridgeline. Thanks to all of you that did help.

Whether you're new to Rogaine or experienced, it's vital to have the minimum gear on you at all time. Thankfully last night this was well adhered to, meaning the injured competitor had access to security blankets, thermal clothing, pain relief and even a small fire.

When you are registering your team, can you please ensure you provide a first name and surname for all team members. We will strictly enforce this going forward, but it highlighted how important it is that we know who we were searching for.

Thoroughly enjoyable to organise another one of these.

Not the weather we?ve become accustomed to but in the end the rain stayed light and the clag eventually lifted though I?m told visibility was limited up high (it was fine in the sauna). The 60 who turned up came back on time and mostly in one piece, (one DNF due to a flare up of an old injury) which makes the organiser?s job much easier.

The Lightning Speed Robots took it out by nearly 100points, Nick and Mary were next (the only team who ventured down and up the Gorge, Nick tells me it was worth it) followed by the Brainy Potaters with Debbie and Steve close behind. Some close scores in the middle of the field, ties have been ranked according to who finished earliest. With the exception of 41 all the controls were visited, 42 caused some problems - ?Monitoring Line 2? was written on a pink plastic triangle on a tree (perhaps a bit hard to see by head-torch, I set it in daylight). 37 (the missing clue, sorry about that) had a variety of answers. For the record a ?saddle clamp? is a U shaped bracket that goes around a pipe. This one was definitely easier to see coming down than going up.

Finally most people got the full 100 points from the concrete mushroom, easy enough to read the plaque for the year but you had to go right inside to find the rest of the date ? if we?d had real rain this one might have been impossible! Thanks to everyone for coming, see you all at the next one.
