    I've ridden there a few times; some nice tracks. How old is your son? Some of the trails are a little remote...

    I'm trying to convince my manager and his fiancee to join in a Subaru Outback. That OK, Rechard?? (he's not a forum member, although I keep trying to convince him to join)

    Might be a last-minute thing though...

    Should'nt be a problem Rob. He can come as your guest. Normal community T's and C's will apply.

    After meeting all these members, he WILL become a forumite as well.

    Good day All.

    Just to reiterate the plans for Sunday.

    It's a brekkie run and also a 4x4 Community Event, so attendees may start arriving as early as the gates open which is 06h30 and have a breakfast.

    The cost of entrance is R250.00 Per vehicle irrespective of number of occupants. ( At the gate, mention that you are from the 4x4 Community)

    The meeting point for the day will be at the entrance and as we have lots of vehicles and would like to make it an Epic day, please ensure you arrive no later than 08h30 for the briefing.
    The briefing will include, Meet and greet, designation of duties and roles for the day and lastly the testing plan..

    After the testing etcc has been completed, all or any drivers that would like to go drive the entire trail, may do so.
    For those that would just like to chill and kuier, we will move down to the Lapa area, where we can can then burn some meat, and Pop the beers.
    NB# UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL ANY ALCOHOL BE ALLOWED WHILST YOU ARE DRIVING OR PARTICIPATING IN ANY TESTING. So if this will be an issue for you, please stay home.

    We do not want any unpleasantness as has happened last week at another trail Venue.

    See you all on Sunday for a great day of fun....

    No drinking will be allowed in any vehicle travelling with our group, through the venue..... PLEASE. We will name the people who do not adhere to our request regarding this:

    After the event, you are free to enjoy what ever you want, but we would like it if you keep it within reason.

    I've been asked to take some notes on the day, and thought I would try and create a spreadsheet to document as best I could the vehicles taking part, and then some sort of subjective comments of how the vehicle fared on each obstacle. I hope to capture this on my laptop on the day.

    To this end, it would help greatly if each participant could provide as much of the following info BEFORE the event to speed up the process on the day

    1. Forum name
    2. Real name (optional, but requested)
    3. Vehicle manufacturer
    4. Vehicle model
    5. Drive (selectable 4x4, permanent 4x4, AWD, 4x2.....)
    6. Low range (Y/N)
    7. Traction control (Y/N)
    8. Rear locker (Y/N)
    9. Front locker (Y/N)
    10. Centre locker (Y/N)
    11. Tyre brand
    12 Tyre size (e.g. 265/60 R17)
    13. Tyre type (highway, all terrain, mud terrain .......)

    Any other info that may be relevant (I need some help from the old hands here please)

    Obviously the comments might be subjective as to how each vehicle manages each obstacle, but where possible I'd like to be as objective as possible. As a newbie, I would also appreciate some assistance on the day at identifying each vehicle as it tackles each obstacle, and making the relevant comments.

    TIA

    I must confess that I had mikems install new springs to offset the mass of the winch and front tow bar, and it seems to have raised the vehicle around 30mm so I am not as standard as before.
