Please advise on interest and availability:
The option of the club running fuel stop 2 at Finke this year or providing some people as a group to assist with a fuel stop has been presented to us.
I would like to get an idea as to who would be interested or possibly interested. I am not looking for full commitment just yet but I would like to get an idea of the number of people that would be interested. As our level of involvement will depend of the number of people interested.
I feel it would be enjoyable event as you are contributing as an essential part of the event. It would also allow us to set up a base camp and outside of the times the fuel stop is operating(only a few hours each day) it would be a good social camping environment. Volunteers also are given a pack including limited edition hats and shirts only available to volunteers. It could also provide a base camp for club members involved in the sweep team in that part of the track.
Fuel stop 2 is located 116 km south of the start/finish line. It would most likely require travelling out Saturday camping out the Saturday 8/6 and Sunday 9/6 nights and returning home on the Monday 10/6(Queens birthday public holiday) afternoon after the days racing.

If your are interested and would  be able to help out barring any unexpected commitments please register as going. If you are interested but unsure yet as to if you will be available please reply as maybe. You are able to change this selection at a later date I just need a fairly accurate idea of how many people are interested to determine our level of involvement.
If you are intending on being a part of the fuel stop please also register with Finke organiser’s via this link https://finkedesertrace.org.au/volunteer-eoi Check the box’s for fuel stop 2 and at the bottom of the page mention you are a member of the out back 4wd club.

Any questions feel free to ask in the comments section and I will try and answer them as best I can.
