Meeting time: 1400
Drive starts: 1430
Drive terrain: Sand dunes
Drive will end at sundown

Convoy allocations and Radio frequencies will be shared by Whatsapp on Friday morning, just prior to the drive.
Please be punctual to avoid making many others wait for you, as well as to maximize our time on the sand.


IMPORTANT: If you are bringing smaller children, please ensure they are secured in an age-appropriate car seat, or bolster seat.



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.
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.

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

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 fre to join.

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

The location is in one of the nearby Emirates.
The exact coordinates will be shared only with the confirmed participants on Thursday evening or Friday morning, by WhatsApp.

Hello Markus,
We have to balance the number of participants with the number of Marshals, who are available for support for the particular drive, to ensure the safety and comfort of the participants.
The current tally at the top reads 48/48, which means that all 48 available slots have been taken, and the later registrations are in the wait list.
We will, now, just have to wait for more Marshal registrations or any member cancellations...
