The BSAR Annual Training weekend was held on 20-21 June in the Fryers Ranges near Castlemaine. Over 90 people participated.
The weekend provided BSAR members and experienced bushwalkers interested in joining BSAR with training in skills for bush search and rescue. The program included:
- Saturday 20/6: Workshops, search exercises, night searching
- Sunday 21/6: Participation in a Victorian Rogaining Association (VRA) 6 hour Rogaine.
Saturday’s workshops included running through the call out process and search techniques, radio training, a GPS rogaine and some detailed first aid procedures and information. After dinner night navigation was polished.
The Victorian Rogaining Association 6-hour rogaine on Sunday was a great adventure with wonderful weather and some excellent bush navigation. There was some fierce competition amongst the more experienced rogainers too.
