"OLD SPECKLED HEN RUN - COAST TO COAST (Waikanae Beach to Castle Point) -
The second run of the 2020 season will be, as advised, a coast to coast run, starting at Waikanae Beach, and going to Castle Point which is approximately an hour out of Masterton on a very pleasant road.
The start, will be from the Drift Café car park Waikanae Beach and the outward route will be a bendy one over the hills on the Reikorangi/Akatarawa Rd to SH2 in Upper Hutt. From there to coffee in Featherston and then on to Castle Point via Masterton for lunch.
Total distance will be approx. 330 kms and it will take us approx. 2 hrs 43min without a stop one way. Given the distance members might like to consider spending the night either at Castle Point or say Greytown. You might like to communicate your preference so arrangements can be made prior to the 20th March.
For those who don't want to start from Waikanae there will be a rendezvous point at the lay-by, Twin Lakes Lookout on SH2 just north of Upper Hutt.
The details are:
Meet: 08.45am for a 09.00am departure.
Where: Drift Café Car Park - 1 Waimea Rd, Waikanae Beach
Destination: Castle Point, Wairarapa with lunch at the Castle Point Hotel
Confirmation: To Peter and Claire Fleming on 022 415 0038 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 20th March 2020 with your intention to attend and also state your starting point - Waikanae Beach or Twin Lakes.

This is good one to air your car and yourselves before winter comes along.
