Limited Shuttles, Makara Peak Festival 5th December

Postby Robbie on Tue 23/Nov/10 12:27pm

Hello all
Sunday 5 December is going to be a huge day at Makara Peak.

It is the MAKARA PEAK FESTIVAL :D
and here is the link to our web page:

http://makarapeak.org/Default.aspx?pageId=804561

Please note that the shuttles are just part of many events on the day, and will be limited to just ONE vehicle..

This is not a day for many shuttles, but a day for many people to see what happens @ Makara Peak and how, and who by!

And how to support the Park so it can prosper and grow :thumbsup:

I can show you parts of North Face twhere visibility in the bush (before we piloted then built the thing) was about half a metre, for 120m at a time. I hate gorse :-)

But anyway the Festival is a day to show off Makara Peak to those who might not have seen it, or perhaps not thought about it too much :thumbsup:

If you need more shuttles, my beach badminton set has a plastic shuttle you can borrow! :)

It's shaping up to be an awesome day. :thumbsup:

Oh yeah, is the shuttle pickup the usual place, ie intersection of St Albans Ave 4WD track/Snakecharmer 4WD track?

I believe they'll be running from the intersection near the bottom of RL extension/start of Big Tom's, but don't quote me on that. I expect you won't have time for many anyway, what with your vigourous warm-up procedures for your Grand(ita?) Loop burglarising.
