We are disappointed to advise the Gigglepin Pro at Tooborak will need to be postponed. A condition of any permit of this type is that there are no objections by the local community, unfortunately we had 2 objections from nearby property owners which now requires the permit to go before council for review. The next council meeting is at the end of September.
We will follow the council's procedure and endevour to resolve the objections leading up to the next council meeting, where hopefully we achieve a successful result.
Note the event is not canceled as we believe the objections can be resolved, but it will be postponed until this occurs.

That sux guys. You Mexicans don't get nearly enough 4wd comps these days as it is. Hopefully you can resolve the issues with the neighbours.

Just spoke to Wayne at smithi, the issues was that two residents either side made complaints, one of which has now been resolved.

The other farmer that has complained the dust "may" upset his goats has been told that to push his case further HE must take the organisers to VCAT instead of Wayne as no other residents in the area have an issue with the comp. So new dates should be set for late feb.

Also he made mention that mid year there is likely to be some activity at Nojee where previous comps have been held...

I sugest even if your not entering come along and show your support for the event and gigglepin as a lot of people have been working for many years to make this happen.

Would be awesome to get some winch challenges happening in vic again, This will probably be the deciding factor on whether to build a rock crawler for tuff truck or winch challenge truck for more comps closer to home.

"Tuff" truck's are for people in NSW. Vic trucks tend to be on the less w ank side and more on quality/ability side
