Presidents Report

Hi All

I was away for a weekend at the start of August, and when I returned my TWIN brother who had been looking after the farm had had a 4WD run here. The only difference between him and myself is that he has BLUE hair….. Some of you may have met him!! The Blue Rinse Run was a great day with lots of mud some even having to winch downhill to get out of bog holes. The wet conditions making it very challenging in places and a very rutted track causing some newbies to exclaim in horror. A very small knob in one paddock became a undriveable hazard for some participants. A great turn out with 11 trucks.

The run down to Pouto with The Whangarei was a good winters day out, only two of us from the Kauri Coast met up with them (however others joined along the way). Good to foster good relations with our other Northland Clubs. We will be doing more of this a bit later in the year with some combined runs/events.

Get your SUBS paid before the end of August and come along to the Prize giving Dinner, basically its a meal for free. Our sub is one of the cheapest of the Four Wheel Drive Clubs out there and the benefits of being affiliated to the NZFWD Association make it very worth while to be a member.


Being a 4 wheel driver just means ”getting stuck in more inaccessible places”

Yours in 4WDing
