Travelled over to Campbell park offices to finalize a course for the monthly handicap on Sunday.
Recent rain has caused the track between 2 small ponds to flood and is presently about 2.5 metres wide with a very muddy base. Unusable for 180 people to negotiate, twice.
We have therefore ditched that idea and found another version to use. It will be 2 laps for the Thomas series, distance 7.6 kms, with 1 lap for the Frylink & Waddell, distance 3.8 kms.
It's not perfect, but the best available.
Almost all the tracks are really good, with a short section on grass a little uneven in places. Hopefully, the gate at the horse stile may be opened, otherwise, a bit of show jumping will be required. It's a great location, out of the way with shade & a big car park.
