Further details and the entry form for Taranaki's Billy Goat Rogaine on 3 Feb 02 are now available. Entries close on 18 Jan.
There are 6 and 3-hour options available, and in a departure from normal practice you are allowed to use a GPS. The word shoestring has been used but as there are going to be codes to record at each site it may be better to call it a "no frills" rogaine, leaving the word "shoestring" for events which have nothing at the controls and rely on honesty.
The area near Inglewood is typical Taranaki back country farmland
with rolling to steep terrain, river flats, ridge and track networks, and
quite a lot of bush - goat country! You'll get a bare copy of the map at 1:50,000
and an enlargement with the control sites shown. A snack will
be provided afterwards.
