Monster Meeting Day & Night - Saturday 4 June 2022

Admin Opens:8:00 am , Event Start:10:00 am, Event Finish:12:00 am Duration:6 + 6 hours

The plan is similar to June 2019 Ross Creek Night and Day Rogaine.  The below explains the Special arrangement for that event.

In order to do BOTH Rogaines, you need to enter your team in the 2×6 Rogaine event. This will be the THIRD event listed when using Online Entry. Please DO NOT enter in the day or the night event if you intend to do BOTH. The standard day or night events are for entrants only doing a SINGLE Rogaine.

  • If you enter the double Rogaine, your Rogaine format will be at the same times as the day event with Admin opening at 8:00.
  • You are required to return to the Hash House at the Day Rogaine finish time, i.e. 16:00. You will lose 10 points for each minute you are late. If you are more than 30 minutes late, you forfeit all your day points and we will have to start a search for your team. You can still do the night Rogaine but your overall score at the start of the night Rogaine is zero.
  • When you finish your day Rogaine, you will be assigned a score however no Tag Printouts of announcements due to Covid restrictions.   You will hand back your navlight tags and receive new ones for the night event.
  • Teams doing the double Rogaine are eligible to place alongside teams that are doing the day Rogaine only. Your score at the conclusion of the day event is used for your day placing.
  • You may then have a couple of Hash House sausages, BYO extra food and re-plan your course for the night event.
  • You will be required to attend THE NIGHT ROGAINE BRIEFING at 17:45. You will need to have your night navlight tags punched by the briefing punch. The earlier day briefing punch 8 hours earlier is not valid for your night Rogaine.
  • Your team will need to provide a second trip intention plan for the night Rogaine when you enter the briefing corral for the night briefing.
  • During the night Rogaine, you may visit and score any controls on the course. THIS INCLUDES controls that you have previously visited during the day.
  • Your finish time is at 24:00 and you lose 10 points per minute after this point and forfeit your entire score if you are more than 30 minutes late.
  • Your final Rogaine score is the sum of your scores from both the day and the night Rogaine.
  • We do not support the arrangement where a person may want to do the Night Rogaine with a different team mate to the Day Rogaine.
  • No food will be provided at the conclusion of the night event.

During the time between the two Rogaines, you may wish to change into fresh warm clothing. You may find that you get MUCH COLDER than normal given the 2 hours between the end of the first Rogaine and the start of the second.

Event Details

Event Description

In December 1851, Australia’s first industrial action was taken near Chewton.  The industrial action by 15,000 diggers preceded the well known Eureka Rebellion and was known as the Monster Meeting. See We named this Rogaine in memory of this meeting.

Registration Date:06/05/2022, Closing Date:25/05/2022, Late Date:31/05/2022

Location Description

Set on the VRA Permanent course near Chewton however with different start location, different checkpoints and changed scoring.. 1 hour 25 minutes from Melbourne.


Set 100% in State Forest. You can Rogaine during the day or night, or both. The day and night Rogaines are the same course but different events like when we do a Saturday and Sunday 2x6hr Rogaine weekend. You can enter both of them and even visit the same controls you visited during the day, again at night. If you have never Rogained at night, this is an ideal opportunity to give night navigation a go for a 6hr event. Teams entering both Rogaines will be scored with all team for the daylight event however will not be scored with the 6hr only competitors for the night event. There will be separate results for the night 6hr and the completion of the Both event.
