Ultimate Trail Master

Introduction:

The idea behind developing Ultimate Trail Master (UTM) was to try stimulate interest in 4x4'íng whilst also recognising those who are active & who achieve more than the average Off Road user.

A by-product would be increasing interest in 4x4-related topics on this Forum.

ANYONE who abides by the rules of the competition & participates in the spirit in which the competition is run, is welcome to participate.

Ultimate Trail Master

The most popular of the three is Cinquenta Desafios...

III. Cinquenta Desafios
(50 Trails Challenge)
The 50 Trails Challenge is simple, you must just have completed 50 Trails or Overlanding trips, where you were the principle driver, at any time in your lifetime.

Please Note: You can only list a place ONCE, no matter how many times you have done it.
Between Hennops, De Wildt, Moegatle & Att Se Gat I have over 25 visits. But those will only count as 4 'venues'.

WARNING: I will pick 3 or 4 of the 50 & ask you to prove you were there. Inconclusively.

What Trails/Trips Qualify:
Any 4x4 Trail like; De Wildt, Hennops, Atlantis Dunes, Brakkeduine etc.
Any overlanding trip in Southern Africa; Richtersveld, Kalagadi, Zambia, Namibia etc.
Note:The competitor must have been the principle driver, in his/her own vehicle & accommodation must have been (largely) camping (Ground Tent, TTT or RTT).
A trip to Botswana in a tour group using hired vehicles & staying in pre-erected tented camps & cabins does not qualify.
How it Works:
1. Complete the online registration form on [www.4x4actiongroup.co.za, click on Event Calendar]
2. Pay the Registration Fee of R50.00 using your name, followed by 50 (Cinquecento) as the reference.
3. Submit your evidence & documentation [madmannydefreitas@yebo.co.za (drop the mad)].
4. The competitor will then be sent a Competitor Number.
5. Once 50 are completed, it will be announced & a Certificate will be issued.
