New event – Safire and Clanfin Nite Race 12 December.
NCC will also be hosting a new event on Thursday, 12 December. The Safire and Clanfin NCC Night Race will embrace the holiday spirit and will be a fun event. It will have a Christmas theme and lucky draw prizes will be on offer for the best Father Christmas and helpers’ costumes. There will also be a few cash prizes for the Pros! This will be the last bash before Christmas, so we have booked Gerry van Rensburg to play a few tunes for us. So bring your mates and let’s have a good party!! Ho Ho Ho!!
Entry fee is only R20, and the format will be the usual three laps of Camps Drift, plus two short portages.
All Systems go for the BELL Ithala Challenge 2013
