    NOOOOOO, lol.

    Turn Right @ Lakes Road-House & follow that to York.
    After the Information Bay, turn Left onto Forrest St (which turns into Ulster Road), go up the hill & right @ Forbes St, then right onto Dinsdale St & there is the PC grounds. :)*

    No wonder it takes you so long lol. I got directions from whereis to get from my house to the highway it was going to take me 10mins instead of 3mins lol.

    ok so ignore the directions on whereis - so if i was coming from forrestdale, up tonkin onto roe, right into Great Eastern Highway up greenmount hill and keep going through mundaring etc, past west coast saddlery and keep going and i am turning before i get to the hill where there is a turn off for a roadhouse on the right? could someone please give me exact directions to the grounds **)

    what surface does york grounds have..... hehehe... thinking ahead, for what condition his legs will be in by the time i finish.....

    will the show finish in enough time (do you think) for me to get back to gosnells for the ridden breeds in the arvo?

    yes - i am mad!

    The grounds are compacted dirt. ;)
    IMO & i've ridden on them for years, they can be a bit jarring, the Official area is nicer though, but not a large area also.
    (if the PC moved to the race-course land, it'll be perfect....)

    Nic, i think you'd be pushing it, but leave Duds saddled (hehehe theres a thread on that somewhere here) & fly home. :D

    Yep, your mad! **)

    gosh knows if you can do both but you can certainly try!
    York goes through quickly, but it is their Championship day, so rugs and garlands.
    I know quiet a few ppl going up so i think there will be some competition, but its really pretty and scenic up there - even if the arena is less to be desired!

    Usually tho the Gosnells SOS goes for quiet awhile then their is a lunch break, i dunno you might be able to get to both?

    We would love to go with our hacks but have already pre-entered the little tackers for the breed show. bugger!! lol
