Tiger Hunt V - Prelim Outline

Meeting at: 6 Waterfront Place Port Melbourne vic 3207

On: 07-Feb-2020 at 05:30PM

 

The Tiger Hunt is on again for 2020. This is a place holder and preliminary outline.

Dates are Friday, Feb 7 to Sunday, Feb 16, 2020.

Format and size are repeated from 2018 – 3 dozen riders plus pillions. A descriptive promo will be published in August Desmoto and registration will open in the second half of September. Registered Hunters will be issued with a guiding itinerary and required to make their own accommodation and Spirit arrangements around it. A registration deposit will apply.

 

Lake Plimsoll     

The 2020 plan is clockwise with nights at Bicheno x 2, Port Arthur, Hobart x 2 and Queenstown x 2.

Day 1 repeats an attempt to loop around Great Lake between Deloraine and Poatina (aborted in 2018 owing to unfinished roadwork) while Bruny Island is back on the agenda as a rest day option for Day 5 (cancelled last time owing to foul weather). We otherwise have a mix of ‘tradition’ and fresh ideas to keep the Hunt appealing and fun!
