Ahuroa - Fund Raiser - November 2015

Ahuroa: Volunteer Fire Brigade fundraiser weekend - 14/15 November 2015

Yet another great event put on by the Rodney Off Road Club, fundraising for the Ahuroa Volunteer Fire Brigade... These guys managed to wrangle 80 trucks and a couple of hundred people, feeding, entertaining  and guiding them over several hundred hectares of spectacular  farmland with nary a glitch in sight. 

Pig Farm August 2015

A record run in about 2.5 hours! Just five of us ripped through the tracks; that's not say we had any 'stoppages' ! Even in the first 500m of the track we all had grief. Shaun give us some fun moments diving into water that even Jacques Cousteau would have baulked at!


Te Rau Puriri Planting Day May 2015

Te Rau Puriri - Planting Sunday 17 May 2015 - a good turnout from the Auckland region's 4WD clubs including our own, and local volunteers to help Auckland Council keep up the good work being done in this park. Down in the valleys we had the pleasure of seeing the great results from our previous efforts.
