The 2012 Canscoot Show Weekend Ride:
16-18 Nov

 

The Overview

 
The 2012 the Canscoot Annual Show Weekend Ride was organized by Joe90. He put together a nice three day jaunt down to Mt Cook, out to Oamaru and back to CHC. It covered some great countryside, easy KM's for those who wish and also the opportunity for side detours for those that way inclined. Even a good sized Salmon was liberated from the Tekapo canal's by Brent.
The 2021 Show weekend run started with what I believe to be a Canscoot first, we actually left a couple of minutes early, I have witnesses !!
