can we get the gps co-ords plz

S33 13 02.5 E18 13 18.3

This is the co-ordinate of the look out hill and basically the centre of the clover shaped route.
If you look on Google or Mapsource, you'll see the farm entrance!

Major flu outbreak knocked out the Le Cap's. Not sure if we'll be ready for major outdoor activities by the weekend :( :( :(

I'll be there, but unfortunately volunteered my assistance elsewhere. I believe the race is more or less 12 hours - hope to see some WD's there.

I cannot be there on Friday, but will be able to be there bright and early on the Saturday morning.  Were do we meet up?  Seems the list is shrinking a bit?

Ok I a bit confused ( nothing unusual) but when do you need marshalls Saturday and Sunday or just Sunday. I can help Sunday. Where, when and what time.
