Hi everyone, I hope you don't mind me posting this as my first post. Not spamming, honest, just that we'd (SLROC) like as many different clubs to be aware of this event and possibly to come along and enjoy a weekend amongst other enthusiasts.
Here's the griff...
Last year we spent three cracking weekends at this venue, raising money for our local charities. The Organisers asked me whether I thought it was possible to have a 4x4 Show on the site. I replied that while the idea had merit it would need to start off small (acorns and oak trees, so to speak) and be allowed to grow, much like Billing did.
So a good 4 months and a couple of planning meetings later, we have some news:
We have a confirmed date - 15th & 16th May
We have an offroad course and possible 'green lane experience' in the design stages. To be fair the offroading might be a bit tame for the experienced among you, but for those that only offroad occasionally if at all, it will be great; stock friendly too.
Looking at a two day event with arrivals Friday afternoon/evening.
Club stands are welcome.
The organisers are now looking to see what trade they can attract so if you know of anyone that might be interested in a venue right on the A14 near Bury S.E. then let me know.
Admittedly the event this year will be run alongside an already established event, but I feel with the right input and support we can go a long way with this.
BTW, SLROC are only acting as Marshals and raising money for our 2010 charities by giviing rides around the course to day visitors and those who don't wish to take their vehicles offroad. We are not making money from gate cuts, commission etc; we just want to see as many fellow 4x4 groups and owners all together in one area for a chilled camping weekend for all the family.
So to the prices. Well the nice thing is that if you come as a club and have a club stand, you get 6 free vehicle passes and 12 personnel passes. Camping is extra but is only £5 per person per night with kids under 12 going free.
So if this is something you think your guys would be interested in then by all means give me a shout.
I have some more info from the organisers:
I think that's a deal!
I'll be there, Have been attending this event (Suffolk Kite Festival)for the past 6 or so years as a member of the suffolk kite flyers and both my sons perform demo's of powerkiting in the arenas at points during the weekend.
we allways camp on site for the entire weekend.
If the SLROC is as friendly a bunch as SKF, then it will surely be a cracking weekend all round
will see if i can get the saturday off work as its my son's birthday and he would love it
I think we are especially sociable, but then I'm biased.
We had a good weekend up there over Easter preparing the 'Green Lane Experience' course. While it won't set any hearts racing for the veterans, the pits we drive into as an added bonus are quite fun, and probably not something you'd come across on a normal laning run.
By the time we arrive for the Model Air Show, the off road course should be dug and will need testinig.
God it's a hard life!
Well guys you missed a great weekend. I only counted one Fronty there though, a silver one and no FOG logo either that I could see.
Looks like it will go ahead again next year so perhaps some of you will be able to make it then.
I Was there, although my motor stayed where i left it, next to my tent, all weekend.
Sure was a cracking weekend all round, you guys sure pulled out all the stops.
Loved the rides sround the track and so did my youngest, at the last count he'd been round half a dozen times and on the green laning track 3 times.
Sorry for late reply, I lost my bookmarks and had to try and remember all the places I've been!
Thanks for the words, we had a fantastic weekend and thanks for supporting us with the off road rides. In all we raised £1274 for our chariies, the main one being EACH Treehouse Appeal for this year.
THe 'Green Lane Experience' rides was actually an afterthought, as some of our guys in road motors thought the offroad course a little harsh for them. Glad you thought it worth the extra money, it was a 5 mile round trip!
Here's to next year.
