Update (from Paul):
The come and try day turned out to be a great arvo! We had thought that due to rain that it would turn off most people from coming out. In the end we had about 30 riders turn up of which there was about 4 or 5 first timers and 7-10 beginners and then the rest were more regular riders.
Because of the different skill levels we split into, 2 groups with Mags taking the beginners and myself taking the rest.
There was a lady from Parks and Wildlife there who took some photos at the start and should be sending them through to us at some stage as well as giving us all a bit of a rundown on the Casurina Coastal Reserve including asking anyone who uses the park to give any feedback about trails that need work or other ideas for the park.
All in all it was a fun arvo with mud and puddles and a few crashes, mainly due to the mud, with everyone coming away with a smile on their face!
