First 4WD TRIP Xmas BBQ/gathering - 14 Dec @ Lysterfield Lake, Melbourne EASY

Lysterfield Lake, VIC

See more trips

You are invited to join our first 4WD TRIP Xmas BBQ / EOY Gathering on 14th Dec (Sunday) @ Lysterfield Lake, Melbourne, Victoria

 

Meeting point: Beach Carpark (See photo below)

 

It will be BYO food, we will bring soft drinks and juice to share.

 

This will be a family social event, mainly to get together, meet new friends and to talk about all the trips we've done in the last 5 months since we launched in June, and to get to know our partners who have helped 4WD TRIP. We do not intend to do any 4wding but we will guarantee there will be laugh, fun and plenty of stories to tell. 

 

More activities are currently planned, including:

 

Kris Kringle (if you wish to participate)

We have changed the format to make it easier for everyone to participate the Kris Kringle. 
  • For family who would like to participate the Kris Kingle - Please bring a Xmas present (~ $20 - $30) from your family (or per car) and give it to our Santa upon arrival. Santa will do a draw and call out the family who will obtain the present. This is basically an exchange of Xmas presents. 
  • For parents, you can also prepare Xmas presents for your kids. Please give them to our Santa upon arrival. Santa will call out your kids name and give them the presents. 
 

 

Group Games (Men, Women and Kids) - No excuse (e.g. I am too old for this shit)

  1. Piston Cup (Three leged Race)
  2. Shock Absorber (Tie both legs with rope and jump across)
  3. Turbo Boost (Shuttle Run Relay carrying recovery gear)
  4. Pulling Power (Compete until last man standing)

 

Lysterfield Lake, Melbourne, Victoria (Only 30mins from Melbourne)
