WA Rovers run several events throughout the year, for both Rovers, and other sections of Scouting. Below is a taste of what we get up to in our annual calendar. Along with our big events, we also play host to some smaller events.
Sandmoot is a social camp held over the Labor Day long weekend. This camp is usually held at the Vasse campsite in WAs beautiful South West.
With different activities and tours on offer such as the adventurous activities, the gourmet tour, or if none of those interest your, the self tour.
For nearly 90 years WA Rovers have had the honor of guarding the state War Memorial as apart to the ANZAC Eve Vigil. A part of this event also includes forming an Honour guard for the ANZAC Day Dawn Service.
WA Rovers each year host Gravelmoot, where we put in a huge amount of man-hours to help maintain the Manjedal Activity Center. This is our chance to put something back into scouting.
The Rover Ball is a formal, annual dinner dance where Rovers can let their hair down and have a great night. This is a change from our usual service or muddy events. The ball is run every year by a different Unit and with a different theme. So if your Unit wants to get creative and have a blast running an event then the Rover Ball is for you!
What is RSM?
Rover Scout Motorsport (WA) is key element of the Rover Section program in Western Australia, which sees the potential for members and past members to participate in all aspects of Motorsport. Being affiliated with CAMS Australia, RSM is a fun, active and educational program designed to provide hands on training and further develop members ability to problem solve, study and fix combustion engines and advance their driving capabilities.
Here in WA, we run to RSM Events every year! Bush Baja and Badji Bash. To learn more abouts these events or to tender for them, email the WARC Program Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Motorsport is deeply embedded in Australian culture, it adds to community cohesion and development, and is the fourth most watched sport in Australian in terms of spectator attendance and we are thrilled to be able to offer the opportunity for members to participate in our annual events. Whether you like to drive or spectate, there is something in it for you with these action packed weekends of speed, accuracy and testing your car's endurance!
