Communication update: 13 October 2022
Many roads between Melbourne on route to Fowlers Gap have been closed due to flooding, as a result of the heavy rain activity.
After consulting with the VRPU and the transport company it has been agreed that the race point will be moved from Fowlers Gap to Carrieton to ensure a 500ml race is still able to take place.
The roads on route are open and do not show any signs of flooding or closure at this stage and will provide a safer route for the transporter and the birds.
WPF rooms will open at 6.00pm for basketing tonight.
