(turn right into Kopuku Road, then follow the arrows and signs till you left on to Schumacker Road. Yep it is confusing. Several crew members have been lost getting here.

STARTS AT 4 PM FOR SKILLS TEST AND/OR TRAINING TOUR STARTS 7 PM TAKING IN THREE FORESTS AND SURROUNGING FARMLAND.

We are allowing Side X Sides, 4X4 Quads and a few motorcycles of friends of the SXS and Quad drivers. Lights are compulsory - no lights no start!

The concept is that we meet at the forest from 3 pm onwards to discuss the tour, sign on and get ready. at 4 pm we head out to a few prearranged skills tests (Trials) to test the driving ability on the terrain. we will give some guidance to those that request it and score those who have it all down pat.
Back to HQ for a BBQ Dinner then at dark (about 7 pm), we head out to the forest for a tour in blackness using our lights of course. We will take in three forest blocks and some farmland where we will have amazing views of State Highway 2 and surrounding towns. Then it is back to the headquarters for a supper and byo drinks.

For those wishing to stay overnight, there is free camping, flush toilet and a shower.
