    Mez got a reaction from .Joel for a calendar event, Speed Weekend V2   
    EVENT CANCELLED DUE TO WIND BEING A BIT POO !
    With Easterly expected all off the weekend, we have pulled the plug on a trip away however should by some miracle the wind direction change (Like it did over the Footy Final Weekend), we will be up for a day trip to Sandy.

    Footy Grandfinal long weekend 2017 at Sandy Point Vic
    The tide times are awesome for using the main beach this weekend so hopefully the wind gods will be kind and provide the right amount of wind, at the right time and in the right direction.
    This event is diferent to previous years so please read on:
    You will need to organise your own accomodation there will be no group booking of houses.
    You can contact the Sandy Point Caravan park on 9998 4462 or by email sandyphpark at bigpond.com. As of the 15th May they still had some sites. The advantage of this park is that it is straight accross the road from the beach and next to the shop for anything you forgot to bring. It was old but ok when we stayed a few years ago but can be crowded.
    Other options are Warratah Bay Caravan Park. As of the 15th May they had a handful of powered sites and plenty of unpowered sites or another caravan park a little further away such as Foster or Toora.
    Or get a group together and book your own house - try the local realestate agent or one of the common booking sites.
    It is up to you to decide where to stay and arrange it.
    There will be a group dinner out in Fish Creek on the Friday night at a venue to be confirmed. If you want to be included in the booking please reply in the Footy Grand Final thread with the number of people to be included in the booking.
    Weather permitting there will be a group BBQ on Saturday night at the BBQ's at the back of the community center (accross the road from the caravan park behind the shops and tennis courts).  You will need to bring your own meat, drinks and something to share with everyone for example a salad or dessert. Closer to the date please post up what you are bringing so we don't get too many double ups.
    Hope to see you all there.
    Kathleen and Nigel

    Mez reacted to jhn.holgate for a calendar event, Harden Kite Festival   
    Situated about 100km North West of Canberra is Harden, which plays host to the Harden Kite Festival.  With competitions, market stalls and a large open area there'll be lots to see and do.  Did I mention the big open area?  Looks like there would be plenty of room for some buggying.  From 11am to 5pm on Saturday October 15th.

    Mez reacted to DJ_Sylk for a calendar event, LLLSC Regatta   
    The Lake Lefroy Land Sailing Club annual regatta is held over the September long weekend. Attracting 20 to 30 competitors many traveling from Perth and further afield. The race schedule consists of a series of sort course races and a marathon for each class present. Usually class 5 and Blowcarts/LLF Mini’s. We would like to run a class 8 (kite buggy) race if there is enough interest.
    Lake Lefroy is 50km south of Kalgoorlie and 650km East of Perth. With 550 square kilometers of rock hard salt and steady winds in both spring and autumn it is probably the best land sailing venue in the country.
    Spectators and competitors welcome, free camping at the site. For more information and local contacts join the facebook group “Lake Lefroy: Land Sail and Kite”.
    Registration and pilot briefing 7:00 Am Sat don't be late.
