Covert Corin Bank Update

By timgee2007 - 4 December 2007 11

Hi Dudes,

Following an article on RA a few weeks ago about a big festival at Corin Forest early next year, I thought I’d take my shiny new 10 speed for a bit of a covert Captain Cook on Sunday morning, and see how things were shaping up. (Given the line-up, I was curious to see what sort of infrastructure they had beyond the slide and other stuff I remember as a tacker.)

After managing to get up Corin Road (58 minutes) I spoke to a few of the guys working on the site (and there were more than a few of ’em, so no chance of me being RA’s new undercover reporter, ‘fraid) who took me on a bit of a tour (to Mark and the other tall dude – thanks! ).

From what I saw, it’s looking pretty promising. There is biiig natural amphitheater that will hold the main stage, plus a couple of smaller clearings (surrounded by giant pines and gums) that will feature support acts and provide a more intimate environment. Kind of hard to explain, but looked cool. There will be camping on site, and those areas look awesome (a LOT better than what I’ve experienced with the bike at the 24 Hour bike events at Kowen Forest).

Some pix attached – sorry not more detailed, but only had Ye Olde School 50mm lens – but hope they give an idea and hopefully the organisers will put some more on the official site (as the setting has surely got to be one of the ACT and CorinBank’s main attractions).

Certainly shaping to be a great festical, well done to the organisers! GREAT to see this type of thing happening right here in (or at least close to) Canberra. You can find out more about Corinbank at their site: http://www.corinbank.com & Just Bands will have all the latest news also: http://littlesmoke.com/newjb

Thanks threeze – I’ll probably do the ride again this weekend, and will take the good camera and try for some more shots that give a better idea of the what the finished product will look like. Apart from the festival side of things which is cool, it’s nice to see so much regeneration up there (and through the wider Brindies). A lot of the gums have got loads of regrowth – a nice change from the moonscape of Stromlo, etc.

Has the Jessica virus damaged the site?

There’s something wrong with the photos.

In one of them, a bloke is wearing a straw hat and a flanny.

Also there is no comments link to this article.
For this I blame solar flares.

I too am seeing the bizarre layout problem.
Something has broken somewhere. My free technical diagnosis is over, if you want anything more, I charge.

Climate change.

But don’t worry, the new ruler of the world Mr Kevin Rudd (we have a PM by the name of Kevin?) will soon fix it all…

Has something happened to RA technically? I don’t see any photos. I’d thought the poster had erred and would fix it, but from the comments above other people can see them but I can’t.

Also, the ads and the handy links to recent comments on the right side of the page are now right down at the bottom of the page below all the posts.

nice work, and I have no issue with the picture size.

$&*# – sorry about the size of the pics folks – I swear they weren’t that big when I uploaded ’em.
