Event information: Mack Creek OY #2 & SST #2 Event

Export to calendar Back

First bush OY event for the season in classic spur gully terrain with scattered mining remnants. The shorter courses are on the flatter ground to the E of the park while the longer courses also get to explore some of the more interesting sections to the west. This is the first time this map has been used for an event since the Sampson Flat fires. The park is currently looking magnificent, and being dry at the moment is easier to navigate.

Pre enter and pay on the day. To be eligible for OY points you must be a club member and enter in your age class. If you prefer to be non competitive you can enter by course. Provisional course information is as follows:
