Hey champ, if you can make use of some PVC pipe for drainage let me know. I have access to a bunch of 90mm storm and 100mm sewer offcuts if we're still using the stuff.

Greetings All,
Any idea when the Parks Connect page will have the online registration available? Just checked the Parks Connect volunteer activities page but the trailbuild for Sunday isn't even listed. I'm assuming just turn up on the day and the bureaucracy will be completed at some stage if it doesn't get posted.
Cheers
Vossy

Hi  Vossy

For some unknown reason activity doesn’t appear on Park connect page. We will have a signup sheet on the day.

Thank you to the 12 volunteers who contributed 70+ volunteer hours today on the trail build along Follow Me.

On the build we reshaped the existing berms in the lower section of Follow Me.
Some of the berms were extended to improve the ride quality.
Existing double rollers were converted to a gap jump and drainage was also added and improved.
A majority of timber from existing features were removed and replaced with rock and cohesive material.

Existing drainage was cleared and new drainage paths were added during the build.

Our next builds are December 1st and 2nd. Please pencil these in your calendar if you want to attend our last builds for the year.

Images and words thanks to @praveensm27
