This year's event will continue to follow a general Rogaine concept similar to last year. S

cored tasks will be spread out over a reasonably large geographic area and crews will be required to self drive between them. Therefore there will be a set start time from ICP following each mornings operational briefing.

The challenge will be held at Rain Cliff Youth Camp, South Canterbury (between Geraldine and Fairlie) over the three days 11-12-13 October 2012 with a maximum of 16 crews

participating per day.

Due to length of the day's challenge, crews and IMT participants that have long distances to travel are encouraged to spend the night/s at Rain Cliff Youth Camp. Bunk rooms will be available and there are camping sites at the location (refer registration form).

Lunches will be supplied for the day of participation with breakfast and dinner available if required on either side of a participation day (refer registration form).
