6 Hour Rogaine - Mackinaw Fish & Wildlife Area - April 9, 2016

What is a Rogaine?  It stands for "Rugged Outdoor Group Activity Involving Navigation and Endurance".  Unlike a standard O-Meet where you need to find the controls in a prescribed order, in the Rogaine you can find the controls in any order you choose. This involves a bit more strategy and mapping skills, which adds to the fun.  The goal is to find as many controls as you can (or want to) within the 6 hour time limit.

Unlike a standard meet, we need to have participants register in advance for this event. Participation is limited, so sign up early. Registration for is open now and ends on midnight of Thursday April 7th.  Simply use the PayPal box to the left to sign up and pay.

As in past years there will be two maps, one east and one west.  There will be roughly 50 controls total.  You will pick one of the maps to start with and leave the other by the start, finish.  There is a map change and download after you are done with the first map.  The cut-off is 6 hours and there will be a 1 control penalty per minute you arrive to the finish after the 6 hour cut-off.  

Required safety gear: whistle, first aid kit.

We will be using our electronic controls for this event.  If you have a personal SI-stick please bring that along.  

As this is a large event, more volunteers than normal are needed.  Please email us if you are willing to help!
