Volunteers enjoyed a fantastic sunset and warm fire waiting for the 12 hour teams to return.

Flesh freezing breezes to skin burning sun, rolling paddocks to the evil checkpoint ripping clothes and bodies. The spacious hash house on top of the hill had magnificent views of the rolling sheep grazing country with Mount Franklin lurking behind. The course covered some great country with some thick scrubby bush – no views here. Some scrub was prickly, some of it was not. People quickly learned to tell the difference. But there were also many magnificent areas where the going was nice and easy. It was good to see that the views and the weather encouraged many rogainers to stay and gather around after the event.  They enjoyed the Castlemaine Lions Club sausages and volunteer made soup. There was great camaraderie after the event.

About 250 people turned up to participate in a combination of 6 and 12 hour events and just about everyone claimed overall it was fantastic. A large number of novices out for a new experience benefitted from Norm’s new help desk.
