It is the only day of the year that the public is allowed to drive on this pristine piece of land that stretches to the beach. And to make sure that the rules were obeyed, and those who took their off road vehicles on the course were safe, each group was guided through the course by members of the Landcruiser club. Melkbos Station commander Rhine Barnes was extremely upbeat about the day saying it had grown a lot since last year in that there were more stalls and a bigger exhibition.
“Although we still have to pay our bills for the day it looks like we will raise more money for our station than we did last year. We allowed one hundred and fifty 4x4s and 16 quad bikes access to the reserve and the entry fees for those vehicles alone will bring in around R55 000 ,” said Rhine.
