Avalanche Adventure - East Midlands

Postby Trugga on Sat Sep 20, 2008 6:36 pm

The Green Lane Association (GLASS) held their AGM at the Avalanche Adventure today (Saturday 20th September). In a change to the usual venue, they had hired a small corner of a field for car parking and socialising and a marquee for the actual AGM. Before and after members had exclusive use of the off-road course.

Some might think that playing at an off road site is a strange thing for a pro Green Lane group to participate in, but in this case it worked as a real ice breaker and invoked a sense of camaraderie. In reality, it was not such a strange idea, as it gave a reason for members to travel from further afield with the bonus of over night camping/caravanning and of course, most of us own a 4x4 and use them in various ways.

Whilst a relatively small P&P site, it was rather entertaining:

I might post some other (non Frontera) photos later, when my carpets have dried out a bit :oops:
