    IRF rules are clear and Lauri is doing a good job of reinforcing them However I think IRF may soon need to reconsider the relevant rules Technology is advancing quickly and GPS capability will increasingly be in normal items like phones and watches and it may become impossible to police Other recreations that specifically use GPS technology such as geocaching are growing in popularity and I think adventure racing requires competitors to have altimeter watches A sport that tries to hold back the tide of technology rather than embrace it will become less interesting to many potential participants we could become a quaint historic sport like fencing archery and croquet We might need to consider trying special events where people are allowed to carry some of the new technology Also an increasing number of people have GPS trackers and would like to analyse their routes after the event In order to retain and stimulate the interest of these people organisers may need to allow these items to be carried perhaps under an honesty system or perhaps in sealed containers the seals of which are checked at start and finish The above are just comments for possible discussion Personally I do not have any GPS or related devices 2008 02 14 Personally I like the idea to let rogaining be a kind of historic sports Simple watch compass and map a la Ptolemy And good company of course Let s distinguish rogaining among adventure sports geocaching orienteering cross country racing and others As earlier I m not against usage of any device Because I like rogaining and everything what accompanies it competition is secondary So rules which let us to be nature friendly are way too important than rules about gadgets And as far as we do have rules we must follow them Aivars 2008 02 15 I think that organisers shoudn t to ban polar products with altimeters because in Estonia isn t very big massives there would be usefull to use altimeters just time wasting After the competitions I want to know how much ascent I taken during the race what was my heart rate and so on And I can t imagine better way than use the Polar products only with altimeter without GPS functions Toward Top 15 Team 2008 02 17 Dear friends Bulletin no 2 Further exceptions from the IRF Rules of Rogaining may be specified in Bulletin No 3 So please wait For example the question for me IRF rule B14 Each competitor shall carry a whistle at all times whilst on the course In an emergency a competitor shall give a series of short blasts on their whistle Armo please write your name always here 2008 02 17 An interesting and valuable conversation The ban is particular relevant to Championship events it is a test of navigational proficiency including planning under duress in a team environment so at International National and State Regional level it has to be reinforced and if necessary enforced I

    names and as one can see from the protocols of the previous WRCs team names have not been used at the WRCs http www rogaining com p7 wrc html We have also considered that the WRC is a serious event and therefore decided that team names do not seem appropriate It is true that some participants represent a club or perhaps want to advertise a sponsor through the team name

    the IRF Rules nor to the Estonian Child Protection Act Indeed the Estonian legislation stipulates that minors children under 16 years of age are allowed to move at night time only when accompanied by an adult person aged 18 or over In other words a team of two minors would be contrary to the Child Protection Act while a family team with a parent and a child is fully permissible Of course the parent has the ultimate responsibility It shall also be noted that participation in the 24 hour rogaine does not entail that one MUST move entire 24 hours Accroding to the Strategic Plan of Rogaining until 2010 adopted by the IRF the WRC is not a closed event for only competitive teams Rather it is a prime gathering of the world rogaining community with a wide cross selection of participants from different countries and at different levels including elite participants competing for medals and those who compete against themselves Best wishes Lauri Leppik 2008 01 28 Tervist Näen et lõpuks olemegi ületanud foorumikünnise ja pääsenud sisse eraldi teema all Olen selle 10 aastase võistluste ajaks 11 a neiu Helise isa Heiki Tänan korraldajat et on adekvaatselt juba meie õigused ja võimalused kokku võtnud ja ei allu väikestele õelustele Kahjuks ei ole me Libahundijäljele jõudnud aga 8 h rogainidel oleme osalenud kahel korral ja tulemusega vägagi rahule jäänud Loomulik on et peale teatavat distantsi tuleb ette raskeid hetki kuid oleme need lahendanud ning siiani on meil mõlemal vaid meeldivad mälestused Meil on aega olnud nii süüa valmistada kui puhata ja usun et ka kaunid fotod mis oleme jõudnud teha on mälestused kaunitest paikadest ja hetkedest Helise puhul on tegemist tegelikult pikaaegse sportlasega Alates 4 ndast eluaastast tegeleb ta iluuisutamisega ning treeningmahud on neil neiudel väga suured Sport on talle
