Thank you Andrew J for volunteering to Organising and setting this event.
TBD however we are looking at Bayside or Morning Penninsula
The course has just over 100 question and multiple choice answer checkpoints. With 100 Checkpoints across Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads Rogainers will find few checkpoints with travelling distance of over 1 km. The questions are intended to confirm your visit to the checkpoint and not test your IQ. Our setter is looking for checkpoints at points of interest. Mountain bikes or Hybrid/Adventure bikes are most suitable for this event.
Expect the map to be based on the Melway and reproduced (with their permission) at 1:20,000 which is standard book scale. The Map size TBD with an A4 size scoresheet and double sided A4 question and multiple choice answer sheet. All the street names are included but there are no contour lines.
Check point visits are confirmed by answering a question that needs you to visit the location to find the answer. Select the correct answer from the 4 listed. No guessing as multiple wrong answers will score a negative score making it not worth a guess. Record A, B C or D on your score sheet so you will need a black pen. Black is most accurate when scanned for scoring.
This is a Metro event. We do not provide camping at the Hash House for metro events.
