Brilliant news. Now we can start planning. Looking forward to this one.

Hi Bill
Unfortunately I have a family wedding on over the long weekend 10-13 April so the date is def 4/5 April
For those travelling from far I'm happy to throw in an extra day on the 6th(April) Monday and take a guided tour (Bikes/Quads) to some other parts of Tankwa at no extra charge. We want people to experience Tankwa

Will announce details soon

Cheers

Hi Guys

The new web site it up and running will still polish a few things as we go
www.capexcountry.co.za  it is the home of Tankwa X Country Rally
Those who would like a reasonably priced club membership in order to take out their MSA license (only MSA club lic required) you can find the application under downloads at the site.

Will up date with the program for April event soon

Is there a chance that you (or a previous competitor) could post a screenshot showing a section of Tankwa track on the etrex GPS . I'd just like to see what my crappy eyes need to focus on. Alternatively, a quick explanation should on what's visible should do.

I've found I can get by without specs as long as I'm following a track without all the other map stuff, just a black line. Dangers and WPs might still be an issue, if you use them.

I'm not gonna be doing the qualifier so won't be seeing anything until the main event.

Don't let fear hold you back ..... take it with you!
