From Mrs Nottle
With considerable difficulty (including having to change venue at short notice because the “Over the Border” map was no longer usable when the borders closed….
Anyway, BBB have persisted and are running an event at Brooklands, near Dalveen. This is a great map, and will be a good event with Liz controlling. NOTE: the shortest way (about 25 mins from Warwick, some good gravel) is along Old Stanthorpe Rd past Morgan Park Raceway. DON’T turn off to Cherrabah, and turn right just after passing under the railway bridge.
