GIRARD ENDURO – successful completion
WICEN NR members went out to Girard State Forest April 30 to May 1 for the Tenterfield Endurance Riders event. There were two checkpoints established, with comms on 147.175MHz (+600KHz Tx offset) VK2REP Portable repeater. which was set up at the Fire Tower. There were no incidents, only a few horses requiring a float to get back to base. The weather was dry, mostly cloudy and quite warm. Horse numbers were down on previous years, probably due to the requirement for all horses to be vaccinated for Henrdra virus. Participants were SARC and WICEN members VK2’s ACD, AGC, ARD, DLR, LRB, OTA, and PMG, with VK2EA as ‘rear link’ at Goonellabah.
