Details:Of late the Wilbinga area is getting a hammering from the 4x4 community and as such there is a marked increase in the litter in the area. To assist in keeping this area open to the public (us) the guys at the Wilbinga Shacks are trying to clean the area up. I think as we regularly use this area we should try to lend a hand. We will meet up with the guys and cart as much of the rubbish out as we can. If anyone has small trailers they can bring or use that would be great. For those who are keen to stay on we will probably be having a BBQ #### supplied by the club #### with the guys at the shacks and camp Saturday night, if you want. For those that can’t meet start or finish times don’t hesitate to come along for what you can. Late comers let me know before hand and I’ll give you my number and details to find us. Sorry about short notice.

Both groups will then reunite @ Mt Holland. Should conditions not allow that, Group two will head back to Mt Palmer Saturday night, then make their way to Hayden Sunday morning & re-unite with Group 1 along the way or @ Jilakin Rock Sunday afternoon. Now that's the plan:-) please be prepared for some adjustments! Bring your camp ovens & roasts and some firewood for Jilakin if you have space.

The plan is to camp over the weekend on the property but you could come up for the day if you want. There is a cost $40 for the weekend per vehicle or $30 if you come up for the day. West Coast will be the only group there but we need a minimum of 10 vehicles. The location of Peter Rileys farm is about 4km west of the junction between Dewars Pool Road and Bindi Bindi - Toodyay Road on Dewars Pool Rd. Grid Ref - 31 26 50 South 116 23 47 East The farm house is right on the road (north side) and has a stone wall around it. Drive in past the house and follow the track around and between a couple of farm sheds. You’ll see the camp at the bottom of the paddock in front of the further most farm shed. I'm planning on travelling up friday evening, if anyone wants to meet up let me know and Ill arrange a meeting point. SORRY NO DOGS
