The three Dig Days between October and December had a number of outcomes. Thanks to the effective use of the Digger we have finished the rough cut, but rideable, version of Eagles Nest. We have also discovered the entrance of the Miners track (more a road) and have made great progress re-opening this old track, the bench is quite impressive. We reckon we are about 1/3 to 1/2 way along. Once completed, we will be able to bike from one side of the property to the other, plus open the way for the climbing and swooping downhill track in this location.

Shailer has almost finished his SSH Track and Lisa has worked hard on her corner and spraying back recent growth. The plants we received from ECan and Trees for Canterbury are doing well, and the releasing led by Lisa has been successful. Alistair has been working hard on his track, which will give a nice singletrack option up to Eagles Nest.
