|Australasian Safari: Early bird entries - cut off date on April 15th 2011.|
Planning is going really well with the 2011 Australasian Safari. The course crews are out and about sourcing the secret locations and competition stages for this years event. The organisation will generally be keeping North of Kalgoorlie this year as there are a number of landholders that are so supportive of the event and the great landscapes are favored by many of the competitors as great competition stages.
The cut off date for early bird entries is Friday 15 April. The difference between the early bird entry fee and the discounted entry fee is 500 AUD and then again another 500 AUD to the full entry fee.
Competitors or teams who are looking for information about how to enter the Australasian Safari 2011 can find helpful information in the Pre Event Guide that is available from the website [ www.australasiansafari.com.au ].
In March 2011, Justin Hunt Management P/L took over management of the Australasian Safari from Octagon Australia and moved the headquarters to Perth, Western Australia. Tourism Western Australia, who are the major supporter of the event have now formally approved the transfer of all agreements to Justin Hunt Management.
When asked about his decision, Justin Hunt was adamant about his commitment to the long term future of the event and about maintaining the high levels of organization and safety. "For me it is a life long passion. We have already identified ways to keep building on what we have achieved in Western Australia and ways we can plan to ensure the long term viability and this and similar events", Hunt said.
"From the outside looking in - nothing will change. From the inside looking out I am giving an undertaking that my team and Tourism Western Australia are committed to the long term future of the event. Also that the important aspects of the event such as the course, our media and television and most importantly our safety and emergency management will only be improved on year to year."
"Like many of you I have become "hooked" on Safari. I am also Western Australian and I believe the state is very event friendly. Safari is such a great fit here. But now more than ever, I need you all to bring your mates, enter this year and ensure that we can keep it viable and growing for the future."
