Region Rover ActivitiesEach Rover Crew has their own individual program of activities - in addition to a range of major annual events run under the auspices of the Sydney North Region Rover Council (RRC). These can attract up to several hundred participants. Sometimes they are run by one Crew or sometimes by a committee from several Crews. Rovers from all Regions across NSW and interstate are always very welcome to attend.
Interested in running one of the events below? Check the Rover Resources page for Region Rover Activities Guidelines and Region Rover Activities Hints & Tips.
Summer MootUsually held on the third or fourth weekend in February every year. This traditional-style Moot is a weekend-long Rover camp where Crews take part in a program of competitive activities, with the winners receiving a trophy and the opportunity to run the event the following year. Each Moot has a theme, and there's dinner provided plus great night-time entertainment with plenty of time for socialising.

RoventureHeld on the third full weekend in March every year. Roventure is like a traditional Moot, but the difference being Crews are encouraged to bring along all their "feeder" Venturer Units, camp together and compete as a combined team. The aim is to build stronger bonds between Rovers and Venturers, and to give Venturers an experience of one type of Rover activity.
