MYSTERY 4X4 TRAIL
A 4X4 TRAIL NEVER BEFORE DRIVEN BY CEDERBERG 4X4
1 MAY 2018
SOMETHING NEW TO DRIVE AND EXPERIENCE AS NEVER BEFORE. THERE WILL BE SOMETHING FOR EACH MEMBER OF THE FAMILY TO BE ENJOYED
This venue is situated only 127km from Cape Town or from Bellville. It opened its doors seven years ago for the public and immediately became a landmark in the area. It is home to two unusual world records and confident that nobody will leave empty handed when returning home. There is something for each member of the family, young and old, to enjoy. If I share more information with regard to the venue, it might become too easy to guess where we are going for the day.
At the rendezvous each driver will have the opportunity to put on record where he/she thinks we are going for the day. En-route a stop will be made offering drivers the opportunity to change their original choice. At the lucky draw and prize giving the winners will be announced. The main prize for the correct answer of the venue will be the return of the Cederberg 4x4 facilitating, coordinating and guide fee to the value of R390-00. Should there be more than one correct answer, the names will go into a lucky draw to determine the winner.
The 4x4 trail/track is a circular one-way drive and will require your attention throughout the drive. Interesting obstacles have been included to test your skills at reading obstacles and knowing the capabilities of your vehicle. Some obstacles will carry a prize that will be announced at the prize giving. The majority of the obstacles will be in sand with a variety of testing obstacles not encountered every day. Your reversing skills will be tested with a twist in its tail. Numerous other obstacles will be on hand to ensure that extra pressure for the driver. Enough said about the trail, now it is up to you to guess where we will be heading on the day. Remember you can get your Cederberg 4x4 coordinating, facilitating and guide fees to the value of R390-00 back if you predict the venue correct.

29 MHz TWO WAY RADIOS
Communication between participating vehicles on any 4x4 excursion is important for many reasons. It ensures the safety of drivers, passengers and vehicles while on a 4x4 trail, where drivers can communicate with one another as regards to their location and situation not to mention the interesting information that is shared with participants. The fun part is the many interesting stories that are shared among participants.
