The small Wairarapa club is in the thick of organising the National Orienteering Championships, which consist of a classic event, two short-distance events and a relay. This scale of event is normally shared between clubs, so it is understandable that there are no spare resources available to run a rogaine less than one month later!
And due to landowner requirements, the Midwinter Rogaine in Canterbury will be
run on June 24 (note change from previous advice),
one week later than previously planned. We all appreciate the
importance of land access, so of course we agree with this. The Peninsula and
Plains Orienteers have run two midwinter events recently as well as the fourth
World Rogaine Championship, and must be acknowledged as the foremost rogaining
club in the country.
