The bulk of the membership aren't on the forum and don't know whats going on, its got to be in Six Stud as well!!

Which of course it was, as I am sure you have read in the last Six Stud (page 57:4 - chairmans chat and 57:13 details).

Ray and I will not participate in events with the Club anyway, as we do not agree with the £10-00 deposit!

It doesn't seem to be giving anyone else any problems ! - I have deposit cheques already from almost everyone going to Driffield !!!

An event like this has to be properly organised and I assume, as it takes place on public roads, the police will have to informed and possibly be involved. At present it seems an idea off the top of someone's head and hasn't been properly researched!


As I am also sure you are aware, from reading the extensive comments here in the forum and your Six Stud, there is now absolutely no real "rally" involved here, there is NO sense of road trial or race in any way shape or form, it is a commemorative drive around the country, joining disparate members around the country, hopefully with elements of sponsorship on a per-relay leg basis , to raise the profile of the club and to raise funds for the SSAFA. From the advice I have received from the Police and various insurance companies, there is no need for them to be involved at all. If your research says anything different, I'd like to see it.

Steve

If you were to do the Heritage Run, you would know the police were involved in its organisation and operation. Its very helpful when police motor cyclists shut off roundabouts or traffic lights to allow our vehicles to pass. It also helps with safety, as there are a lot of idiots on the road these days and as we know they even cause smashes in there desire to overtake at all costs. With coppers around they normally behave themselves or suffer the consequenses.

Regards, Les.

The point of this is only ONE vehicle on the move for the event at one time, just a lot of one vehicles moving over the space of a week or so. Hence the total lack of a need for a Police presence.

Sorry, I'm stupid, I hadn't realised it was restricted to 1 vehicle! I'm now glad I will not be involved, as its going to be a bit lonely with only 1 vehicle per stage. I prefer convoys with 101's, thats why we have convoy lights and white diffs to help with convoys at night or in bad visability. Been in some good convoys over the years and they really wind up the boy racers and those types who buy the road with their cars! However if you're collecting for charity I would have thought the more vehicles around, the better and the collection results?

Regards, Les.

I'd rather see money in the SSAFA than money in the fuel tank, wouldn't you ?

what?

its only 1 vehicle per leg?
i thought it was going to be groups of 4 or 5 for each leg (if we can get that many people to do it)

the heritage run has hundreds of vehicles which is surely why it has police organising it. a small convoy of under 10 vehicles isnt going to need police shutting roads/roundabouts.

I agree, I don't have any problem with a small group, but....

I'm a bit new to all this but have an untidy GS which I'd love to be involved with your 'relay' idea. I'm based in Wellington, Somerset so look forward to seeing what happens.
