Heard teams event at Possum might be in August?, be great if it is, would allow more time to fix/get truck sorted before Manukau comp.

That's one of the main considerations on timing, Roger.

As it was as dry as it gets some of the tracks were easier than planed, but it will be different story come end of winter :twisted:

I see the NZ4WD calendar says that Possum Palace teams Event is 24 - 25 Oct, is this correct.

Also, regarding Costa, what are the dates and what is the story with entering it. Is it individual or teams.

Cheers

Hi all,
Manukau Winch Challenge 2015 entry form will be available from www.manukau4wd.org.nz from tomorrow.
When you get to the site I think you need to click on 'Useful Links'.
Being a month later we hope to be able to utilise areas of the farm last used about five years ago. But it all depends on the weather.
Hopefully we won't need ambulances or fire engines Tim. But I'm sure you will bring all you need.
Regards,
Dave

Confusing your Tim's David?

Both good guys with high technical ability and knowledge that they willingly share, but so far as I know Suzolla has not required an Ambulance lately.

Madaz on the other hand is lying in a hospital bed, waiting for his ankle to be rebuilt (possibly never be the same again) and looking down the barrel of six months of forced time off work, which is a drama when you're self employed. As such, I feel that both this joke and the one in the Manukau entry form email are in poor taste.

Arron.

humm yes, I have to admit on the entry form at least, is in bad taste. I can only apologise on behalf of the club for this.

Yes, it seems I was a bit premature with my comment.

I was told emergency services were not required and I therefore assumed that Tim was in fact ok. I was not told, however, that Tim had left the event prior to their arrival and that he had suffered an injury.

Any injury suffered in our sport must now be considered 'major' especially with the current situation with both insurance and coming government legislation.

I'm sure all our thoughts are now with Tim and we hope for his speedy recovery.

Regards,
Dave

Hi all,

Manukau Winch Challenge is on November 13 & 14 at Onewhero, just South of Pukekohe. There are four classes of competition. All of which have entries. The most entries are in Modified class (14), about half the field.

There are a few places available. For entry details and forms go to www.manukau4wd.org.nz and click on 'Useful Links'.

Kind regards,

Dave
