Arrow SA Cruise - Sat 9th November

Hey All,

Since the night cruises seem to attract our bigger cruises, I propose that we have a cruise on Saturday night 9th of November, with the usual 7:30pm meet up for an 8pm departure. Anyone with a good idea of a cruise should post it here, also any one wanting to attend should also post a reply here. Once some numbers are known we can go from there.


I like a suggestion from RedEF, to add on it more. We would head off from Burnside Town Hall, up the freeway to Mount Barker, then along Mt Barker Road through Hahndorf down to Crafers, along Upper Sturt Road to Belair, then Main road through to Shepherds Hill Road, Sturt road, Brighton Road, Anzac Highway, around to Glenelg North, then basically cruising along tapleys hill road to get to port road, into the city for a finish at bunnings mile end.

A bit brief, but any input would be appreciated!!!

Cheers,
Chris

Cheers Lee, I just had a skim over the roads last night on whereis.com.au, but if you have any input as in which roads you think we should take, that would be cool.

Anymore suggestions will be great, we can get some more numbers and then put the cruise into concrete.

Yeah i think the next one after this one we can do a northern suburbs one, I agree with you MrBrock, it does need to be done.

Sounds like a pretty good cruise route to me, my only suggestion is the re-group in Blackwood, turning right accross Shep's Hill Rd is a pain (and u cant get into the carpark easily from there). So i suggest for a re group, go through the roundabout onto Coromandel Pde, and turn Right into Woolworths Carpark about 20m after the roundabout. To get back onto Sheps Rd, turn right out back of carpark, then left onto Sheps Rd. But apart from that, sounds pretty sweet 2 me. Nice long 1 aswell.
