Call me a sookie la la pyker but with all the rain and wind I'm calling the race off early tonight (Twice in a month, we are getting soft)

We need to get out there through the week and check fallen and hanging trees and clean everything up for the sheepstations

also if anyone can spare a few hours to help volunteer for the sheepstation on Sunday please let us know

I won't be there (not for not wanting to) but Pete Thompson and Gooch asked me to post out a invite for a deep pass ride.

They will be calling past the workies car park a bit after 9am so be there ready to ride at 9 if you want to tag along.

The plan is up the drift and out to deep pass and then checking out the enduro trail and LHG on the way back

Unfortunately I can't make it but there is a bit of work needed to tidy up the trail for the sheep station.

So I'm hoping a few of you can get together on Saturday and chip in a few hours of grooming.

Attached is an image of the loop with what work is needed in order of priority

for the most part the regular loop just needs a rake or leaf blower put over it to pretty it up.
