Lake Gairdner South Australia 21st -25th March 2011

THE EVENT WAS CANCELLED on Saturday 19th March after heavy rain had fallen in the 4 days leading up to the event.

 

The first issue for organisers arriving at the lake on the Tuesday 15th was a lack of a salt surface at the ramp ath the edge of the lake. There was just red dirt and rocks for a hundred metres and it would have been extremely difficult for any vehicles to make it to the lake surface. A Native Title inspection was scheduled for Tuesday but was rescheduled for the Thursday, as they would simply not let anyone onto the lake with the entrance in that condition. There was some water around the edge of the lake at this time, but with the Lake surface still in good condition there was still hope at this stage that the meeting could proceed.
By Thursday a monsoonal front had travelled across from Western Australia across to South Australia bringing with it heavy rain. This flooded the lake and eventually closed the road from Iron Knob to the Lake.
The Native Title inspection was pushed back several times as more rain kept falling with a final meeting planned for Sunday 20th March, but it was obvious on the Friday that the event could not proceed. Notifications were phoned through to teams in Adelaide, Port Augusta, Ceduna and Broken Hill, with only one competitor arriving without having known the event had been cancelled. As the rain continued to fall on Friday the phone did not stop ringing at the camp.

There was a General Meeting and AGM on the Sunday morning at the DLRA camp and an auction of some items at the Canteen on the Sunday night.

There would have been around 70 groups at the saltbush camp and about 50 groups at the DLRA camp. The DLRA camp was closed on Tuesday morning and the only way out was via the Kimba Road, most leaving in convoy.

More reports will follow soon.
