Average build today , slasher broke 5 mins into the clearing :cry: , so i had to continue by hand made a bit of a dent in it just before Lower taniwha and Ressa meet.. then went onto fixing the ballsup of the track that the PD workers made a while back at the Table just after the junction of the trails, i recut the line around from the top and dug a nice little drain /tiny berm all the way down to the existing drainage, i cleared out that drain and further on down and then used all the dirt that i had dug up to boost the height of the lip of the table and put a hip into the outside of it, just need to pack the hip better and create a better landing area on the landing side and she will be good as :thumbsup: , the drain and berm will need some more work but its better than a staright line, was hope to get a photo but it started to rain in the last half hr so i will get one early this week :thumbsup: . Hope to get the slasher fixed this week also :angry: .
The next piece to fix up , again ( PD workers ballsup) will be the berm section right on the junction of the two tracks they have cleared a good metre back and i noticed that people have been cutting the line thus allowing crap to grow on the track so we will do the same here dig some drainage ont he high side and cut away the edge of the trail to put it back the way it was... ;)

Good build today , Hude and i got the hip into shape , gave it a ride seems pretty good , will need some fine tuning , probably look at making the ramp a bit flatter to keep the launch lower but otherwise it was good as
