LROC-KZN Second Gates Event, April 2008

(Total 9 Gates)   

 Land Rover Owners Club KZN   (Total 8 Gates)
2nd Gates Event 2008 April 08: Inchanga Valley

A change of venue was required from the usual Eston Quarry. The venue used this time was in a valley below Inchanga. The format of the gates was different as we set the gates along the length of the valley, which required a drive between each gate. Comments from the members on the day were that we should continue with this format. Itís a lot of work for the few setting up the events as we had done a few trips over the weekends before into the valley and a few of us were in the valley at 07h00 checking that the markers we had laid the week before were still there.

35 vehicles signed the register with 19 vehicles through the 1st gate. 12 gates were set but we only had time to use 8 of them. The next Gates Event is on 22 June further down the Umgeni Valley on the banks of the Umgeni River. Itís a venue that we have not used before for a gates event so it should be good.
