The Hunter Mtb Association is based in the Awaba Mtb Park in the foothills of the Watagans near Newcastle. The Ground Effect Bridge on the main trail at Awaba turned 10 this year, and needed some love. The Slush Fund was super happy to contribute $1000 towards the purchase of the enviro mesh decking to keep it sweet for another 10 years.
The ants of Dungog Common have been at it again, three more pallet bridges eaten away. A request was made by Dungog Commoners Inc.
for more funding to upgrade the bridges and make them less appealing to ants. $1100 Ground Effect Slush Fund dollars later, with volunteer labour from the club, the job is done.
The Pemberton Visitor Centre in the south west of WA has spent the last ten years building the Pemberton Mtb Park, some 30 kilometres of trail that caters for a range of riders. In need of a heavy duty leaf blower they put the call out to the Ground Effect Slush Fund, $1000 later the leaf blower was seeing some action.
The Yackandandah Mtb Track network in NE Victoria has named a 17.2km trail after us, the 'Ground Effect Loop'. The Slush Fund helped out with cash for trail maps, and supplied IMBA books so they could build a sustainable network of cross-country mtb trail.
In late 2016 the Tumut Mountain Bike Riders approached the Ground Effect Slush Fund for a cash contribution towards their project to improve signage in the Tumut Mountain Bike Park.
