What is NONT?

NONT (Night Observation and Navigation Trial) is an annual themed event run by South Australian Rovers in which teams pack themselves, like sardines, into vehicles to complete a night navigation trial. Each team will need to decipher a range of puzzles in order to obtain the correct route to each checkpoint. On route, points can be obtained by identifying and recording navigational markers or Observations. At each checkpoint, teams will have the opportunity to have some fun and compete for points by completing the themed activities.
