As long as we go somewhere then I'm easy. I've already booked the camper trailer regardless of what choice we make.

Anyhow the basic stuff for the Willowglen Challenge is as follows

This year’s Challenge will again see more than 20 teams competing from various registered 4WD Clubs from NSW & ACT. Each team will consist of 4 competing vehicles and a non compulsory reserve vehicle. There will be two vehicle classes – Cross Country Drivers Association’s Touring & Challenge with Willowglen Challenge Supplementary Rules.


In order to compete you must be a member of a registered 4WD club. Applications will be open to all teams from 13 July 2009 and Team entries will close on 21 August 2009.


Entry fee per competing vehicle is $200 (including the reserve vehicle if you choose to include one as part of your team). The fee includes entry to Willowglen for a driver & navigator and partners (4 people in all), your competition entry fees, and camping fees. The total fee payable for a team of 4 vehicles is $800.

Teams will consist of four (4) competing vehicles and a non-compulsory reserve from any registered 4WD club.

All drivers, navigators and team managers need to be members of the Cross Country Driver’s Association.

Why can’t the Team Manager compete?
This is important from an Event Management perspective. It is essential that the Event Management has access to a representative (ie the Team Manager) of the club at all times during the competition. This is not possible if the Team Manager is a competitor.

Just throwing it out there! there are classes so may mean the carnage tracks are left to the big boys.But the CCDA membership would be a problem for us so Octoberfest may be the better option.

There are 2 classes, touring and challenge....

Why would CCDA membership be a problem for us?


Willowglen is more focused on having a serious competition whereas Octoberfest is more focused on having a fun competition, if that makes sense!

When it comes down to it then for this year I'd prefer Rover Park as it's the last time Octoberfest will be held there and it is most likely the last one.

We could put Willowglen up for consideration next year, there's also other comps I'd like the club to look into such as the Toperi Challenge.


Just my thoughts

Cheers
