Date(s) - Saturday 22 June, 2019
6:00 am - 6:00 pm
Update: The deadline for registration is June 15th; I’ll message you by the 13th, finalise team members June 14th, as we need to collectively decide if we’re entering as multiple teams, if we’ll order meals-ready-to-eat, whether we’ll camp overnight, etc. Currently we’re a party of 4.
Keen trail-runner, bushwalker, geocacher, or navigator? Rogaining is a fun mash-up of all those activities and there’s an upcoming chance to try it out at an amazing location.
June 22-23rd Bush Search and Rescue is running the Annual Navshield Rogaine in Kanangra-Boyd National Park. There’s 1-day and 2-day entry categories for teams with a minimum of 4 people. If there’s enough interest, we can have multiple teams (in case some are up for the longer adventure).
“Every year Bush Search and Rescue NSW (BSAR) organises and runs the Australian Emergency Services Wilderness Navigation Shield or NavShield.
The 2019 event will be held 22-23 June 2019
This premier navigation event attracts entries from local, interstate and overseas organisations, including:
VRA, both regional and specialist squads
Police including Police Rescue
Ambulance and SCAT
Rural Fire Service

All NavShield participants must be over 18 years of age.
Participants may be required to sign an acknowledgement of risk and risk waiver.
The event is acknowledged to be an important training event for the NSW emergency services. Entry is open to all groups that participate in search and rescue activities. Bushwalking Clubs, outdoor groups and Members of Rogaining Associations are also welcome.
Participants test their bush and compass navigation abilities in an overnight event through 100 square kms of wilderness terrain a few hours drive from Sydney, Australia.”
