    RUN DETAILS: ( as per old thread)

    Meetup point is the Shell servo on Todd Rd as per usual.
    Arrive BEFORE 8:00am
    Depart 8:00am for point Danger Torquay.

    9:15 ~ 9:30
    Begin arriving at Point Danger on "The Esplanade" road
    (dependent on traffic flow from the AirShow along the Princess Hwy, time may be later)

    10:00 ~ 10:15
    Depart Point Danger for the coast
    Travel to ..... Anglesea ~ Airey'sInlet ~ Lorne ~ WyeRiver ~ SkenesCreek

    Turn Right At SkenesCreek to "Forrest" on the Skene'sCreek/Forrest Road.
    15K's later you should be at "HainesJunction" & should turn left into "Turtans Rd"
    NB: Turtans Rd is very TWISTY and TIGHT, please give yourselves some room on the first part of this road and be very aware of oncomming traffic.

    Turtans Rd will take us through "BeechForrest" and then onto our lunch venue at the "Otway Fly"
    GPS info : 360 Phillips Track, Weeaproniah .....
    turn left into Phillips Rd & turn off is just before "Ferguson"

    A tree top walk is available for those that wish to take the opportunity, it takes just under an hour for the average fitness wise person. We will spend about 2hours at the Otway fly for a good break and a feed and to give members time to take the walk. This time is also for the social side of things for members that dont wish to take the walk....

    Visit..... for more info.
    NB: its rather cool up in the tree tops so a jacket might be a handy item to carry.

    After Lunch we head to LaversHill and turn right to head to ApolloBay, following the GOR back towards Lorne. At Lorne we can either turn north and head to "DeansMarsh" and then "Winchelsea" then Geelong .....
    continue on to Anglesea and then to Geelong.....

    That decision can be made on route to suit people's needs.

    My mobile number is 0418 322 475 should you get lost or need advise during the run etc etc.

    my votes for april 5th or 26th.

    can do any may date bar the 31st but imo postphoning the g.o.r. cruise due to bad weather & then reschedualing for May when we know there'll be bad weather kinda defeats the point...

    so yeah, just my 2c but I think sooner rather than later.

    cheers, Tim

    Unfortunately for me I dont think I'll be able to make any of these dates :( With the nationals and other commitments the only one I'd have a shot at getting time off for would be April 26.

    Might have the give it a miss. Maybe we can try an early summer run late this year?

    Cheers, Andrew
