There was a change this year which improved things a lot. The holding area was enlarged and classes called earlier so that those going out didn't get in the way of those coming back in. This went fairly well considering that trying to get people where they should be is a bit like herding cats.
When we set out in old Numbum it was fairly cold and despite wearing more skins than an onion we were very cold when we arrived. A cup of coffee helped before we ambled around to get some photos and video. Thanks to Pam for the photos.
It got warmer as the day progressed and we ended up doing the runs without our coats. With the improved arrangements we got two runs in in the morning. The hour lunch break was abandoned so after our second run we dashed off for the obligatory fish & chips which were excellent as usual.
Our third run was soon after finishing eating and I'm sure we were slower with the extra weight.
There wasn't time for all to have a fourth run but there was a chance but we had to be quick because the road had to be opened again at 4pm. We just made it and had another reasonably good run which was only marred by Numbum dropping out of second gear. That's a first and something else to investigate.
The entry was 116 this year and the organisers think it was too many. There will be a limit next year.
On the video front I decided to try something different and find a couple of volunteers to talk about their vehicles. I found two which were great but I'm not sure about the audio. The background noise was drowning them a little and my camera doesn't have provision for an external microphone. What do you think?
