It’s been a loooong time coming but the signage for Parklands is currently being printed and will soon be delivered and installed.
The two big maps at both the Radar Hill Road and Atkinson road side of the park are being updated to include the new trails. There will be maps installed at the junction above Double Dab and the intersection where Rock’n’roll and Rock-a-dial meet the fire road. There will also be maps at the top of Phoenix and at the skills park.
Additionally all those old map signs that only showed the fire roads are being replaced with new maps that also show the single-tracks.
We are also getting some extra icons printed up so Rookie Road, Lush, Taser and Blue Tongue can be properly signed. Also we will get some “No Entry”, “Give way” and extra directional arrows for problem intersections. So expect some trail care days to be called to get these posts and icons finally installed.
Thanks to Ranger Eugene and QPWS for all their help and also thanks to Richard Berry the original map designer. Thanks as well to all the club members and volunteers who, many years ago, advocated for a Sunshine Coast Trails Alliance (SCTA) for the repairing and building of trails across the Sunshine Coast (including the new trails recently built in Parklands).
As the title says the AGM is going to be at the Woombye pub which is in…well… Woombye (duh!). Just drive down the main street, pass the shops and it’s at the end near the park. Plenty of parking around the back.
AGM will kick off Saturday 2pm and we’ll go through what’s happen this year then we’ll vote for filling in the new committee positions (or vote to wind up the club if no one wants the job).
The function room is beside the restaurant so you can come through the restaurant or the double doors from the carpark side.
They will be putting out some platters of nibbles for us and you can buy your own drinks.
See you there!
Michael Johns (Soon to be not) Club Secretary
PS: We’ve had some feedback that people are scared of the I.T. side of things. With a couple of small provisos Ben and myself are happy to continue looking after that side of things. So as long as you are able to use a phone or send an email you’ll be just fine.
We get positive feedback about the quality of training – and not just from Geoff.
We are squeezing in some more training clinics before the end of the year. So on the 15/16th of December we’ve organised Geoff from HitBikes to run some skills training for body positioning and new braking techniques clinics.
These will be small 5-person classes about 90min long and will teach you the importance of body positioning on a bike such as the “attack position” and the new braking technique clinics will teach the importance of…well… braking I guess.
The classes are $11 and the money goes back to trail-care and organising future training clinics.
