OK, it isn't quite live yet, but the ASRA crew plus other volunteers have arrived, and we're busy setting up here at the Scout Camp. Tomorrow we'll be busy with last minute stuff, plus rider check-in which starts at midday.
It's wet, and the forecast is for the rain to continue until Thursday night. After that it should be mostly clear.
There's a lot of wildlife here - possums, deer, bush turkeys, lyrebirds and the most common of all - leeches. This place is seriously crawling with leeches - salt is supposedly the thing to ward them away.

See you all tomorrow at rider check-in.
Jayden M and Dejan through to the Juniors final. Jayden winning every heat in the Juniors.
Kelly Carter and Quin F through to the Juniors final. And Kelly is like Jayden - 1st in every heat. But Kelly is doing it with the theme of the weekend - a dislocated shoulder
