People will be moving into the area on Thursday 26th April and most will be gone Monday morning 30th April.

There are cabins, a dorm and ample camping available. Cabins must be booked direct with the Village (get in quick) on (08) 8648 4842 but I can look after the dorm and camping side of things.

Let me know and I'll put your names on the DBW thread.

Great facilities, local hotels for pizza night or otherwise and an eat in BBQ on Sat night for $20 - all profits to a charity or two, probably Childhood Cancer and RFDS.

Refer last TBAM for Kipo's story on the 2011 event.

More info available here.....http://www.dirtbikeworld.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=86289

If it's any help to those contemplating travelling from afar, it's Anzac Day on the Wed before the Classic, so that allows some travel time in the lead up to the party...er......event.

Some adventure bikes meet along the way from Adelaide and travel up together on the Friday and we've had riders from Victoria and WA attend (how ya going Squilly?)

Although the Classic 'organisation' is about eating/drinking/campfires, I'm advised that many participants take motorcycles with them and that there are rides aplenty available to all corners of the Flinders, including awesome public access routes up to 40 or so kilometres long .

Post or PM queries and all assistance provided.
Sign me up Trev.

I would like a dorm room (close to the walk in beer fridge as usual).

Cheers Brett

About 20 dorm beds and unlimited camping spots still available.

55 starters already.

Good onya DD...hope you can make it, it's turning quite National with some NSW riders making their way too. Two of my doctors are coming also, both are extremely capable in emergency situations- someone for you to talk professionaly - but they ride BMW800's, so there's a downside.

I still remember that I owe you a beer.

cheers

Hi Trev

I'm in. Would you put me down for camping on FSS please?

I'm trailering a bike up. Probably the DR for this one. Much more suited to the rough stuff than the KLR.

:-)

Mike

Done Mike, look forward to catching up with you there. Not so rough anymore....when we were up there in August they had puta bobcat/grader through 2/3rds of the tracks from Moolooloo to the ruins, but the last part is still rugged. Anyways, the rains might have sorted it out by next April.

cheers

Would be good to see you there again DD.

Maybe one year some of us SA Adv Riders should head over to The Grampians for say a 2 day ride around the area on some of those sweet tracks you gave me the info on last year.

We could base ourselves at the Halls Gap caravan park.

Cheers, Sol..

I would like to put my hand up for that ride Sol
I did a one day ride there a few years ago on the GSA.
Some great looking tracks around there.
My bro and myself have been talking about doing that ride for a while now.

Cheers Ian

That's the start of a good idea, Sol. There are lotsa great camping spots all over the Gramps and I'm discovering trails aplenty the more I explore there. Some of the best ones are still closed from our big wet of last year, so I'll keep you posted. Maybe March next year... I'll speak with some of the Central/ Western/ Green Triangle guys and see what we can nut out.

The Central Vic/SW Vic leg of the Cancer Ride is scheduled to be coming through the Grampians around March/April(ish).....Maybe a few of you Souf Ozzies can jump on the band wagon and incorporate that somehow. Be good to get a continuation into SA this year for the Spanner. Speak to me or Miss Jane if interested in trying to nut something out.

There ya go...perfect timing! Sounds like a plan, Gags. I think that would be a reasonable alternative to the South West wander of this year's relay, especially with a few more Gramps tracks dried out over summer. Just need to make sure Martin "rain-maker" MTrain isn't in form!
