The Club has been asked to help out at the National 4X4 show. This is coming up very soon on the Friday-Sunday 22nd-24th of July. The show is purely 4X4, not like the larger show in September.
We have been offered a free stand, indoors 3m x 3m, to display our club, as is usual for a show. in addition Volunteers are are sought for:-
Garage Talks ........ similar in style to a chat over a beer or two. relaxed sharing knowledge about "Tips on preparing for a trip - local NSW and/or iconic trips". This might include route planning, vehicle preparation, permits, safety, communication. etc
Test Track ........... There will be a track of some kind. It will be in use by various exhibitors eg Jayco, Fulcrum for some of the day. In between, the organisers are hoping for club members to man the circuit and drive people round in our vehicles. Further, they are hoping for some demonstrations of recovery techniques eg winches, straps, Maxtrax.
Bush Mechanics ......... Here the show is hoping for some 15-minute topics on how to keep your fourbie going when things go wrong bush. eg puncture repairs, split hoses, coolant leaks, belt failure, suspension breakages, bush welding. The idea is to elaborate on one topic rather than all in one go.
Please come and help out for a few hours and get free entry to the Show!
Please select your preferred days and shifts when you register so we can put together a roster for all the activities. Although the Garage and Bush Mechanic stands may seem daunting, the depth of experience in our club is huge, maybe tackle it with a mate.
