Event Information

U-Max is a DIY event format, see website below. We've found a delightful little patch of white/light green pine forest between the picnic area and the old railway line. We mapped it at 1:5000 and since the August U-Max have mapped some more. Perfect practice for orange and red, suitable direction practice and there's a track maze which is lots of fun.  Its not steep, you'll be able to go fast enough to miss things heh heh.

Hopefully this area will feed thru into club events at some stage so we're not publishing the map online. Instead, email Michael Wood below by Saturday 7pm and he'll print you one. Gold coin for his ink. No entry fee. Bring map bag.

Note: you need to be on time, by 10am we'll have set off for the area 15min away. Post-event "debrief" in Upper Hutt
