Recovery Seminar and Trail Leader Course @ To Be Announced
Aug 20 @ 9:00 am – 6:00 pm

Heading out on trail runs is why we are members of the EOTB and getting stuck is an inevitable part of that. This training day in two parts aims to ensure our members have proper knowledge of recovery techniques and to ensure that those members volunteering to lead trail events have the proper training to provide a positive experience for all in attendance.

These events are scheduled back-to-back, but are independent, and it isn’t necessary to stay for the trail leader course if you attend the extraction seminar.

Recovery Seminar

The EOTB recovery seminar will cover the proper use of recovery equipment including:

  • Tow Straps and Recovery Straps
  • Winches
  • Snatch Blocks
  • Jacks
  • Air Bags

The session will cover applicable safety measures, discuss what to look for in a recovery situation and various techniques applicable to common equipment.

Trail Leader Course

The aim of the trail leader course is to provide knowledge and share some of the club’s collective experience with those individuals that volunteer to lead the group. Individuals completing the course should gain an understanding of the skills, knowledge and experience to be an effective leader on the trail.

The course will cover topics such as:

  • Communications
  • Recovery Situations
  • Incident and Emergency Management
  • Vehicle Inspection
  • Spotting
  • Environmental Considerations

Taking the course alone does not make you a trail leader, but is an important step in the process.

Member Run – The Gorge @ The Gorge
Aug 21 all-day

Description

I know what you’re thinking, “Weren’t we just here two weeks ago?“. Yes, but that was an open run. This is member’s only. More time to play!

The trail runs along a power line offering a variety of rocky obstacles to play on with the option of bypassing obstacles you don’t feel you, or your vehicle, are quite ready for. Please come prepared for a slow pace, with plenty of opportunity to socialize while watching your peers tackle the various obstacles. It’s a great opportunity to get to know your fellow members and take some great photos!

Open Run – Darling Line @ Upper Darling Line
Aug 27 all-day

Description

The Upper Darling Line is an 8km stretch of road running NE from Highway 511 along a power line. The road itself is relatively flat and simple, with a few mandatory obstacles. While the road itself is mostly flat, we will be deviating from the road to play on various hills and rocks along the way to add interest to the run. Some of the obstacles can be quite challenging providing some fun for the more modified vehicles.
