Re: Lake Condition for March 2015

The 28 day rain forecast shows only 1 day in the next 4 weeks might be a low chance of minor showers.
This forecast is a bit of a moving target (last week showed 4 days chance of showers) but the outlook is positive!

Re: Forum Software update

I also forgot to point out that from the forum there is still no "Home" button to get back to the front webpage. makes navigating a bit painful (first world problem, I know)

Re: Forum Software update

The new look is rather good. Apart from an excess of COLONS I like it.

Re: Startline Volunteers Needed

Hi Dave, I can do some half-days at a minimum, I might also volunteer for the timing van for some half days too. Afternoons are good for me, 'cos I sleep in a bit after a lot of beer. :wink: I'll catch you out there on Sat or Sun before the event, if not before.

Re: Lake condition monday 22nd sept '14

I hope it is as good as 2005, when Lynchy set his record.
That year the weather was really kind, and the salt was hard as foock. Really hard, man.

Re: On the Road

I'm just mounting a new car fridge in the back of my ute (nothing lines up and matches/mates, as bloody usual!). I'm meeting up with my son and my brother in law, both first timers, and we're leaving from Canberra around midday Wednesday, arriving Saturday arvo after attending to some family busines...

Re: weather

Many thanks for taking the time and effort to ensure the surface is useable. I've gotten to the turnoff at Iron Knob before and found the road closed, meeting cancelled signs, it's a lot of time and money down the drain if it's washed out eh. Your efforts are appreciated. UPDATE 23/02 The long-range...

Re: Mt. Ive Lakeside Canteen

"WILL NOT be serving evening meals" That is sad news. :cry: I recall the truly excellent food that was served in 2005, it was a pleasure to eat there each evening, and I'm sure a few folks who brought supplies that year would have taken them home after eating at the canteen. I have noted the slight ...

Re: MOTORCYCLE RETRIEVAL TRAILER

If I'm not working at the start line or timing van, I'm happy to donate some time to doing spotting/recovery work. I'll be there, barring cock-ups, on Saturday arvo. Who do I have to speak to?

Re: Volunteers - Timing van

Hey Lynchy, I accidentally double booked myself for Wednesday afternoon (I'm not a "morning person" :D ). I'm booked as timers assistant and also race directors assistant. I guess Charlie will have lots of helpers, so can you scrub the race directors assistant off the calendar for me? My member numb...

Re: Volunteers - Timing van

Hi there, I'm a just-joined-up member (I forgot my member number but...) and computer literate.
I'm more than happy to do a stint at timing. Put me down on the register mate, I'll be there.

Re: Lake condition and forecast

Are we there yet? :D

I'm bringing a couple of newbies, so I hope the stinking heat and lousy rain stay away.

I checked with the satellite mob, but there's no new photos as yet.

The current (August) satellite image shows deep blue, lotsa water. This is the only time I wish for some localised global warming eh.

Re: 2013 Moments

The highlight for me was Brett coming away relatively unscathed from his high-speed off. Mucho relief.
Anytime someone gets dealt a good hand like that makes me happy.
I can't wait to see Brett have another crack at it either.
