Wet & Wild Wainamu Lake 10/9/17

Held on 10th September 2017

With hale & wind driven sand, Graeme organised & ran a great run today out at Bethells Beach.

A 12 truck convoy negoiated the dunes, surrounding pine forest + the odd river bed to mix it up a bit.

Even the sun came for a short spell for this snap to be taken and over our lunchtime break.

Big thanks for again to Graeme.

Waiuku Forest Run

Meet: BP Papakura - motorway services at 09:00

Just to let you know about a Plan B for this w/e in the forest. As I am running short of time to put together a trials course for Saturday,

Doug and I plan to add it to the winching session in the October run so we can combine the two at the play area in the North end.

This Saturday I shall just take who ever turns up around the South end.

Some people who have done most of it in the past may give it a miss which is ok.

Friday looks cruddy and may drag into Saturday.
