SOUTH AUSTRALIA LAND ROVER SHOW

 

The Land Rover Register of SA has invited our club to their annual Land Rover Show at the Melrose Showgrounds 25-28 March 2016 (Easter). Melrose is three hours north of Adelaide in the southern Flinders Ranges. The show offers three days of optional participatory events with camping available at the Melrose showgrounds. The events include group tag-alongs in the southern Flinders on tracks not normally available to the public (I expect Grade C), an adventure track, rock crawl, motorkhana, trials on a new modified course (it looks like a mud wallow but I could be mistaken; some of these will be Grade B), Saturday evening dinner, and more. We should register by 28/2/2016 $90.There is an additional fee for camping at the showground.

 

If there is sufficient interest in the club, I’ll organise the trip from Sydney (the Grade D bit) depending on how flexible the participants are. At a minimum, we’ll need a day before and after for the liaison, but perhaps we can find something interesting to do on the way if you have the time.

 

This looks like a terrific event and is an opportunity for us to support the broader Land Rover fraternity. Email me with time to register if you are interested in going.
