Rogaine

On Tuesday evening 27 November 2018 a Rogaine is being held in Pinehaven.  
A Rogaine is a fun team orienteering event in which you visit as many controls marked on a map as you can in the time limit.  You have a question/answer sheet to record your answer at each visited control.  You can walk or run and visit controls in any order.  Each control is worth points but you lose points for every minute you are late back.

It starts at the Silverpine Scout Hall in the Pinehaven Reserve.  The one-hour team event is an easy walk/jog around the suburbs of Pinehaven and Silverstream with some small excursions into bush areas.  All are welcome to take part.  

Between 5:45pm and 6:10pm you can pay your registration fee of $8/adult, $5/child, $20/family and pick up your map and question sheet. 
Plan your route until the briefing at 6:20pm.  The event starts at 6:30pm and ends at 7:30pm. 


There is also a harder 3-hour event, 6pm - 9pm, with registration and map collection at 5:25pm - see http://www.mapsport.co.nz/wellyrog/
