Uncle JiM:
In a perfect world, pre Covid, this was our preferred area for Trials next year

Thought it was a no-go zone for events? (nature reserve)

Why couldn't we still have a WOC trials race there or somewhere else in sandstone terrain? Could be outside the NOL races, i.e. the days after or weekend after easter.

Having run in Czech last year not far from the WOC location and knowing NSW terrain pretty well, I'd strongly support your suggestion of a trial after Easter somewhere in the Lithgow/Mudgee areas. It's all very relevant - by far the most Czech like terrain in Australia and quite a few maps to choose from, although the vegetation might need a serious field check in some places.

I'm not sure what the plans are for post Easter races now. We're going to have an Easter planning meeting soon, I'll ask.

Not certain about the access status of Munghorn Gap, but I thought it was no go too.

Do I recall correctly that the Pagodas/Ganguddy burnt?

Sounds great Ecmo - definitely worth getting Him involved with that planning as well!
Vegetation on munghorns gap was a bit rough but might be ok for a middle. Pagodas burnt and was very nice - not sure what it will be like next year.

I'd understood that the post-Easter weekend was going to be Eugowra, as was planned for 2020.
