You should be familiar with the club safety briefing in the video below, and adhere closely to the COVID-19 prevention measures.



COVID-19 PREVENTION MEASURES
A. At the meeting point, please park the vehicles at least 5 meters apart and observe standard social distancing practices.
B. Face mask and gloves to be worn at all times.
C. No shaking hands, hugging or any other physical contact.
D. Max 3 persons per vehicle, or 5 if from the same family staying in the same house.
E. Drive briefing can be viewed on this page and communications on the day will be carried out by radio, so please ensure your radio carries the correct channel announced on your convoy’s WhatsApp group so you can line up correctly. Once at the meeting point, deflate your tires and mount your flag.
F. Drivers AND passengers should remain in their vehicles, after deflating their tires and NOT meet or socialize with other participants.
G. There is to be no sharing of any food or drinks.

b) Air compressor in working condition.
c) Recovery rope / strap.
d) Compatible radio pre-programmed to DO frequencies.
e) Refreshments for you and your passengers (if you have them).

Etiquette:
1) Registering and not coming along may stop others from joining and is easily avoidable - so please be courteous and withdraw if you can't make it.
2) Be punctual.
3) Any participants not registered on the forum site will not be allowed to join the drive.
4) Passengers in Registered participant's vehicles are not counted as participants and are free to join.

Environmental:
i) If you have a water dispenser at home, please use refillable bottles instead of buying one time use plastic bottles. The more sustainable we act, the longer we can enjoy our environment.
ii) Strictly no littering. Please make sure any plastic bags, papers, etc. in the car are secured so they don't fly out when opening a door.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and prepare properly - see you on the sand!
