Build this Sunday, Weather permitting, will look to spray the Chute and the surrounding area of the Proposed North Shore track and also the step up for the motorway,... hopefully the Logging has finished around this area this weekend and they have cleaned up the mess laying around the exit of Upper Taniwha.. will look to spray this at some stage, to be ready for the Step Down rebuild...!!!!!!

gate open prob bout 1pm

Good build, slashed some of the over grown areas on Black track and then slashed around the first Lower tani table... then rebuiltthe landing and the ramp.. then cut in a new berm just above the table .. might have to add to the table and make it bigger...we were clearing it in the wet at half pace... hee hee hee.. bit scary..!!!!!

Good build today got from the first table thru to the second table slashed and cleared, then cut a drain for the new berm and refaced the second table and the jump to berm also cut some more drains in, All the spraying we have done so far has begun to take effect well.. looked at the tracks and they are coming along nicely :thumbsup:

Photos for the new Chute Corner
DSC00018.JPG
Have Extended the start of the berm a bit, and given it a general shape
DSC00019.JPG
Added a big log to this stump, instead of the rotting roots, as a bit of a jump into the corner, shaped the entry of the corner too...
DSC00020.JPG
Line speaks for itself.. allows alot faster cornering for this top bit..
