Welli Mills Update

Hi all,

Things have been moving along behind the scenes in relation to Welli Mills rehabilitation and getting the tracks up and running again. We expect to be able to announce a track day out there soon. At this track day there will be team leaders who will supervise groups of people working on sections of track to get everything back to adequate condition. Whilst we will be attempting to largely recreate existing tracks, we do have some approvals for exciting variations.

It is critically important that nobody builds anything out at Welli Mills unless it is expressly done through Peel – Peel has the approvals and must supervise the work. Any illegal track and feature building slows down the whole process.

Illegal tracks and features will be destroyed, and it will probably have to be destroyed by the club. This will take time away from us building legitimate tracks out there which is worse for everyone. So please dont do it.

If you know of anyone planning to or currently building anything please let them know as we dont want to spend days destroying stuff before we can start building again. Those individuals will be welcome at the official build days.

Cheers
