Ain't that the truth!!

The track is pretty much the same state. Lake Tawa doesn't seem to want to go down.

I caught up with Thomas (WCC) last thursday, he is still waiting for an engineers report on the drainage but looks like there will be a few soaker pits required, a new drain under the track & some reshaping of the terrain to help with water flow.

Until any of this happens, everything is on hold due to the amount of digger work required.

On a positive note, the impromptu spirit level in the middle has highlighted a few issues with the track!

Holy crap its all on again.

Digger is on site today doing the drainage required as well as changing the jumps along the back straight!! :D And doing some other earth moving toget the second burm working better!!

Should be ridable by the weekend I think.

There are going to be plants turning up in about 10-12 days which need to be planted ASAP. So we will be organising that from now.

Once those things are capped off we will be able to start construction of the other jump lines :D

You wouldn't have room to store 150 plants at home would ya?

I was going to have the council deliver them to my place before they got planted at the track, but I no longer have room.

If any one has the space for them to be store for a week or 2 until a group can be organised to plant them. Please let me know.
We will be having the plants delivered in about 12 days or so.

That is thew plan dude, we just haven't been able to do anything till the council finished the drainage, looking at making it twice as big so you can rail around the burn for huge speed into the next section.

Unfortunatly these things take time but we will get there.

Ideas and suggestions are welcome, we want to make this place rock!!

We have plans for structures, even got some pricing to have it supplied already.
We dont have enough room for a half pipe, and there are other problems with putting one in, ie getting consent from the council.
I like the rail idea, i'll look into it and see what we can do.

Yeah still heaps to do.

Plan on cleaning up all the jumps so that there is a nice flow round the whole track,
Need to build up the first burms so that you can carry more speed into the second straight, and then will cap off the track with a layer of clean clay to get it really smooth.

Lots of other jump lines planed as well

Only problem is everyone is a bit short on time at the mo :hmmm:
