WSFFM 4×4 Challenge

27TH – 29TH APRIL 2012
Well done Ladies. The recently-concluded WSFFM 6th outdoor recreation challenge for those
who love the outdoors was a blast. There was no holding-back for the gutsy and the adventurous
ladies who stepped into their “battle gear” and rumbled in their 4×4 machines.
It took sheer guts and passion as these ladies who braved the off-road hazards, the dirt tracks,
swift-flowing river to finish the course. Apart from the fun, this adventure was very educational
for the ladies, schooling them on the technical make-up of the 4×4 vehicle, on safety, off-road
driving techniques, and more importantly safety when driving and during rescue.
Part of the course was at night, through a swift flowing river and drive through rugged, muddy
and slippery terrains.
They also learnt about ‘tubing’ where an individual rides on or sits on an inflatable tube,
normally a free-floating tyre tube conveyed by the current of the river. ‘Tubers’ paddled with
their hands. They were given appropriate safety gear such as life vests and advised to wear
protective water shoes.

mornings before breakfast.

in themselves. Not to mention, of course, the positive interaction and team building with
Prizes were given to the 3 best teams that scored the highest marks. The 1 st prize took
home RM1,500 and a hamper each. 2nd prize was RM1,000 and a hamper each and the 3rd

the 4×4 outdoor challenge.
