Andrew and Jo was leading their very first officially MDORC trip, Congrats on a brilliant job too. At the start of our 4WD trek, Andrew and Jo had a little competition for all of us. What a great idea it was, we where gave a number of words which we had to take photos of something relating to the words and there was a prize for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Congrats to Kerry for winning the competition. As for the drive on Saturday we weren't short on scenic views from the Amamoor state forest, the track was a great drive making it a awesome track for beginners and visitors to the club, We stop by the old fire tower for lunch and enjoy the views as well. Amamoor State Forest weekend Like all the MDORC trips everyone have a great time with plenty of around the camp fire Saturday night. Sadly Sunday morning arrived and we said good bye to some of our fellow members and our visitors. Then we started our Sunday drive which I'm sure Andrew and Jo will never forget again after a little sideways action on a steep hill climb. As for the rest of the track we enjoy a number of different terrains from large mud puddles to rocky sections. Thanks again to Andrew and Jo for a wonderful trip.

Well it was a rainy afternoon when we meet at Dayboro for the Mt Mee night run. The rain however didn't dampen our spirits. It was a good turn out with 14 vehicles. 10 member vehicles and 4 visitor vehicles. Some people said there was a shenanigator there as well, unfortunately I didn't see any evidence of that. There were many different makes of cars on the trip even a mighty 6 wheeler. It was a really good run up A Break and no one had any trouble. The tracks were a bit slippery and muddy from previous rain and we did encounter a little bit of rain on our drive as well. It really is a spectacular and interesting sight to see the forest lit up at night, also great to see all the cars lit up as well with their various types of light bars etc. WOW the lookout sure is spectacular at night as well - ha ha ha when you can see it. We all should have eaten more carrots as we are lead to believe they improve your eyesight. Well some members just can't help themselves when it comes to mud, puddles and competitiveness. I won't mention any names, oh all right then they want the fame anyway. It seems Leighanne & Ben were in competition with each other to see who could go through the puddles the fastest and who could get the most mud on their car. I have to say as I was riding rough shot (understatement !!!!!) as a passenger in Leighanne's car she would have to be the winner in going through the mud puddles the fastest and Ben definitely won the award for the most mud on his vehicle. No problems were encountered on the night run everybody and their cars handled the tracks very well. Everyone stated they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The visitors had a great night and look forward to going on many more adventures and trips with the club. The trip finished around the 10 or 10.30 mark. Thanks Gary for another pleasurable night trip and maybe next time we will see the werewolves, they probably don't like to come out in the rain, although some of the participants on the trip did some mighty good impersonations of the werewolves with their howling as they drove through the mud and puddles. Cheers KEEP SMILING KEEP DRIVING KEEP HAVING FUN!
