This short course was designed and built by the club over an 8 week period. 284 volunteer hours, 233 machine hours and $1120 in timber/drainage were put into building this course.  20 cubic meters of rock was trucked in from neighbouring farmers land.  180 cubic meters of soil was harvested from the old quarry pit with in the park and transported around course to shape and produce a solid trail surface.  This will be a long lasting legacy of the national series that all park users will be able to enjoy.
