Whilst the summer monsoonal rain thwarted the Setting team’s planned 2020 Australasian Rogaining Championships site visit this weekend as the access road and surrounding paddocks were awash after the 50 – 60mm of overnight rain, this was a godsend for the parched countryside and local wild-life.

The Setting team and associated organisers were forced to spend a pleasant morning huddled in a café, reviewing maps and Control locations and discussing other Rogaine event management details.

Hopefully there will be further rainfalls in the coming weeks to provide relief to the farmers and start to green up the area.
