Laning


Laning

Postby stretch on Mon Mar 09, 2015 10:27 pm

Looking at taking in some of the essex lanes on the saturday put your names down if your interested, groups will be maximum of 5.

Also looking for people who would be willing to lead.

Laning rules

We all know that laning in general is under the spotlight and there will be people watching us. Directions of the group leader must be obeyed at all times. Speeds are to be kept to a minimum and apporpiate distances from the vehicle in front should be maintained. Any sort of speeding, reckless driving or activity deemed inopropiate by the group leader will not be tolerated. It is up to the sole discretion of the group leader if they feel that someone needs to be excluded from the excursion they will be asked to leave at the next safest available opportunity.

We're not planning on stopping somewhere for lunch ie a mcdonalds so make sure you have food with you and we will probably take a 15 minute breather on one of the lanes.

I recommend you familiarise yourself with the GLASS Code Of Conduct http://www.glass-uk.org/index.php/code-of-conduct

The list so far....

GROUP ONE
1. Bobbinsjob leading
2. Stretch
3. Vauxsqueeks
4. hipo1024
5. RatCav

GROUP TWO
1. Robfog leading
2. Andytats

This posting may have been helpfull, on the other hand probably not... Either way, I may have had drink when posting it in which case it's probably not as helpfull as it could have been

Work safe, and remember all technical problems can be resolved with a hammer, the trick is knowing where to hit it and how big a hammer to use (I often find it may also help to have a spare bit in the shed to replace the bit you have just mullered ;) )

Work in Progress (or not as the case may be) I give you.... 'O-no' the truck.

Comments on 'O-no' the truck may be left here

I am frankly astonished that you think it will make it to the meet Jellybaby!!!

And Ratty you are right to be concerned...historically it could be bits of gearbox, rear brakes, rebellious freckles....you could be bombarded with all sorts...
