Après Event Catering

Traditionally, we provide a Hash House meal after Rogaines; these consist of BBQ sausages, hamburgers, veggie burgers, stews and soups. Sadly, Covid-19 Regulations prevent us from providing a full-service event.

We are currently negotiating with a local service club to provide a sausage sizzle (and perhaps hot water for tea, coffee, instant soups) after the event. More about this soon.

Alternatively, please feel free to bring picnic food or snacks for your team to eat before heading home or head to the nearby Fast Food place on the highway.

Awards

It is important that people do not congregate after the event - so there will be no awards ceremony this year. 
We would be pleased to present awards to winning teams at their school, or meeting night if this is convenient.

New Technology

While, we use Navlight Punching to record controls visited and to determine your score - this year we will trial a new service called MapRun.

MapRun is a GPS tracking application that uses a mobile phone to record your track, record the controls visited and then publish the result. After the event, you can use the information recorded to view your results and track - and that of others. This is an ideal way for teachers and leaders to review the capabilities of their teams - to work through what went well and what might need a little more coaching.

More information about MapRun can be found on the VRA's Suburban Adventure Website.
