C. Max 3 persons per vehicle, or 5 if from the same family staying in the same house.
D. 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 are deflated and mount your flag.
E. Drivers AND passengers should remain in their vehicles, after deflating their tires and NOT meet or socialize with other participants.
F. There is to be no sharing of any food or drinks.
G. No sharing of any equipment, tow ropes, shackles, radios or any other accessory.

2) Be punctual.
3) Avoid bringing along unregistered participants without prior permission.

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

Please can I request members who register for a drive to give at least 24 hours' notice if they will not be joining.

Whilst we completely understand that sometimes there are extenuating circumstances on the day when a member may not be able to join, it is not fair to others to take up a spot if you are not committed to the drive.

Thank you for understanding and see you all at 14:30 on Friday!


My happiness begins when the tarmac ends

HI All,
At the risk of looking completely daft, how do you register for a drive?..................... ignore post. After I posted, the attend box appeared.

Thanks

Andy
