A quick update on the Northern Circuit trip next week.
No briefing takes place this Saturday to allow those who can make it down to Nakuru for the Rift Valley Motor Show to do that (see poster). Let’s get down there and show some club love to the good people of Nakuru. Show days are Saturday and Sunday (8th and 9th December).
Wednesday morning (12th December) Meeting and departure point is the Shell Petrol Station in Westlands (opposite the Oil Libya near The Mall). Meet up from 7am and roll out at 7.30am. Remember to print out and fill out your registration form and carry it with you (very important).
The Map and other details are as below so all late risers can catch up! Lunch stop is at Roberts Camp in Baringo. Get lots of water and snacks in your rides. Remember no drinking while driving, there’ll be plenty of time to unwind come the evenings on all 3 nights!

5 days out in the beautiful African Bush with Bund Rovers Club! Sign up on firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi guys and gals,
November is around the corner, lots happening and definitely lots of excitement as the year takes that last curve towards the end. Action kicks off with Guru Nanak rally happening on the 17-18th, a random trip back to Mt Kenya for a few who just have to go back and some who never made it before and of course our Club Nite on the 24th. If you have any action you want us to join in do holler back and those who can make it will be glad to join – by return email or email to email@example.com, on our blog http://bunduroversclub.blogspot.com/, on twitter or FB @bundurovers.
With the much anticipated Kilimanjaro Land Rover Expedition coming up in December (11th to 16th) we felt that the Club Nite in November needs to be different and this time round it will happen from 3pm on the 24th of November at the new Club Legend in Karen with big grounds and lots of room for us to wander around our machines and exchange notes on modifications, accessories and other tips and tricks we’ve been putting into our machines (WIP). This will definitely be a great forum and we look forward to your company alongside a few other LR gurus in town. Please note Club Nite is a Land Rover only affair (Defender, Discovery, Range Rover, Evoque, Series 1,2 and 3) so let’s not bring Suzuki Escudo for display or issues for discussion.

P.S. Here’s a link to some useful information and guides for the DIY crowd amongst us. Enjoy!!

Hi guys and gals,
What a weekend! Lots of fun despite the few hiccups and hitches and a big thank you to all who turned up and to the organizing team starting with Drive Captain Aarif, Vincent & Dr. Mworia of the Eastern Zone Mt. Kenya Forest Conservancy. We’ll be heading back there in February to complete the mission and take on some new routes with interesting challenges.
In between now and the next Club activity do spruce up your rides, enjoy Oktoberfest, Guru Nanak rally and all the other action to the full!

Now that I have not been polled as a Defender owner on my thoughts if any on the future of Defender I thought it would be best to just get on and say what I have to say. Let's start with the lousy points. Why would JLR make the successor to Defender a blown up Mini? The resemblance is too eerie for words and sets us up for a beating in public forums..."Look at that mean mega mini" type of talk. The plastiky look of the machine is another point. Feels like its a fiberglass job and for battle hardened Defender people like myself that is definitely not a plus. That aside, the features on the machine and the retaining of Defender abilities definitely mean that for the Defender at soul types like myself we can still 'point and go' and know we will get back home...at some time in the future. I do however dare the JLR crowd....much as they are looking at 'emerging markets' to take time out and test the prototype in the African bush, perhaps they would put our minds at ease about expensive paint jobs and that kind of stuff after a spot of greenlaning the African way! And just in case you are wondering where my postion is, yes I will be buying the DC100 when it comes out, but I won't be selling my good old Defender either! So the missus needs to make room for yet another Solihull product. Long Live Defender.
