Anyone planning to go to the Outback Challenge around Broekn Hill this year? I think its on around the end of May? I was hoping to get along and see a bit this year and wondered if an EO contingent was going to develop.If you hold your heart and focus,
you will end up holding your dream

Could only find info for the 2003 event when they would only sell a 9 day pass, no day passes and on top of that they give you food and clothing.
Struth..wonder what that was worth..WTF....sounds like a spectator event for the precious fewI may be mad but I'm not crazy

Waiting on more info like if this is per day or whole event etc.
Ray you were right, rich mans event.

From Jason Lock at Procomp.
"This year it will be $330 per adult.
Base camp, can go and see what ever group each day."

From Drafty a competitor in the OBC.
"Lucky l didnt respond straight away as l heard it was around the $450 mark per spectator which l think is way over the top, even $330 will hit the average Person pretty hard if you intend to bring your family along as you still need fuel and food on top of that. When l spectated 2 years ago is was around $250 per vehicle."
