Woodhill Forest Safety Patrol - Sunday - CANCELLED
Time & Location
About the Event
Trip Leader - Andy Frost
NB: This trip may get cancelled due to Covid Lockdown level.
Woodhill Forest is home to Auckland's only dedicated offroad adventure park, and this weekend (Saturday and Sunday) we get four free entries for those being part of the 'Safety Patrol' team.
First please check the club trip rules: Trip Rules
Safety Patrol Team
To be part of the safety patrol team you will need to have a UHF radio (fixed or handheld), recovery gear (eg: straps, shackles etc), a winch is also very useful for recoveries, and good quality mud or xtreme mud tyres. You will need to be able to move to any part of the forest to help visitors who may get stuck, lost or have some sort of vehicle issue.
You may also need to stay later than the closing time of 4pm (as is often the case) to ensure all day visitors have left the forest before the Adventure Park closes for the day. This can involve assisting people with vehicle issues out of the forest gates.
It is okay if more than four trucks want to be part of the recovery group for a particular day, as we just divide the remaining cost of entry among the team.
So that will mean for those in the safety team;
4 , we get in free
5 we split the 5th cost ($60) so $12 a piece
6 we split $120 so $20
and so on (please bring some cash)
People might like to attend and not be part of the safety patrol team, and come along for a fun day out and get to explore the forest as a group, and also learn from the recoveries you get to experience at first hard (this is how most of us learn the best practices and do's and don'ts). Please take note that when a recovery is required, the Safety Patrol team need to move swifty to any part of the forest. Remember to read the club trip rules. Good quality mud tyres will be required to get around Woodhill Forest, particularly in the wetter months.
Please note panel or other damage is possible due to the nature of the forest.
Entry fee is $60 per vehicle.
NB: Please register for the day you want to attend Saturday or Sunday using the correct event form, and specify whether you want to be part of the safety team.
