Wotcha foggers....

We are pleased to announce our next meet at the woods on Sunday the 9th October 2011....
will be great to see you there as a fun day out is be to had by all!
Its gonna be an interesting one, hopefully a bit dryer than the last weekender but still with some mud I reckon to test them muddies to the max on the hills, but should still doable with A/t's on the flatter bits we have introduced last year if the rain holds off!! :shock:

Details below...

Sunday 9th October 2011....Picnic in the woods :wink:
9am start meet at Notcutts and then go there together.(if you cant make it till later then pm me and I will give you my mob number to call, so someone can go and meet you nearby and bring you to the site.)
directions for Notcutts click here

£20 per car and driver on the day,
£5 per adult visitor (other than the driver of a car participating)...

I do not organise offroad events, so you are being invited to attend a picnic in these woods,
the rules of which are as follows....

Litter will be taken home...
No open fires...
No irresponsible behaviour which is deemed (by the landowner, by me or someone assigned by me), a hazard to anyone (yourself &/or others)...
5mph speed limit on site for safety reasons...
5 mph speed limit through farm yard and past horses in fields...
No loud stereos,car horns or noisy behaviour near the farm or animals or anywhere on site...
No entering prohibited areas as determined by the landowner and me...
No cutting of trees or wood without my permission...
No motorbikes, quads or go-karts...
Rope swings in the clearing are old and not safe, so please do not use or allow you children to...
Children/ dogs to be kept under control and with parents/owners at all times...
Please keep children away from the open fires...
Cash up front on the day...£20 per car and driver, £5 for other Adults attending...
FOG members and family only, unless I have agreed it prior to the event...


Please note...
Should anyone choose to venture into the woods in their vehicle, I will not be held responsible for any injury/damage or loss whatsoever...
I would suggest that motor insurance that covers you, your vehicle to be used offroad and 3rd parties would be a good idea, as otherwise you are uninsured when at these gatherings, and myself nor the landowner have insurance in place that will cover you or anything that may result from your actions to a 3rd party.
It is your responsibility to take out cover should you wish to protect your asset and those around you, if you chose not to then you must understand that it is your responsibility to deal with any claim resulting from your actions. If you are unwilling to do this, or think that I or the landowner will sort it out for you, then dont take you car into the woods.
You must understand that driving on difficult terrain is difficult and hence you should only take your car into the woods if you are sure that you are, confident in your ability to do so safely, understand your vehicles capabilities, and have assessed for yourself the terrain such that you are certain you can drive it with no risk to yourself or others. You must always exercise care and act safely with due consideration for others in the woods.

These are the rules...please only attend if you accept them, you will be required to sign prior to entrance that you agree.


Please be assured that Sally and I do not organise these meets to earn money, we just facilitate the use of a bit of woodland that we all can enjoy, the proceeds from the meets cover the rent of the land and materials we need to buy for everyone to use...if any extra is raised it will go towards maintaining and developing the site further or buying stuff for everyone's enjoyment...
We give our time for free, as do the many of our members who attend the workdays and do stuff between our gatherings.
We hope that everyone enjoys themselves and have a good time, but we will not tolerate anyone who tries to disrupt the meets or acts in a way that is not considerate towards the other members of the group, or that risks our future usage of the woods.
Be under no ellusion, we have all put so much effort into getting this off the ground that anyone will be ejected from the woods and excluded from future meets if their conduct warrants it...we all want to have fun, and have put loads of work into making a fun place where we can enjoy each others company and our trucks, and as such we are not going to loose it.
Clearly with anything like this someone needs to take charge so that things can run smoothly...that someone is me, and Sally...
Please follow any instructions that Sally or I may give, we want everyone to have fun as much as you hopefully do, and if either of us asks you to do/not do something, its not for our benefit, if will genuinely be for the benefit of everyone, so your cooperation will be appreciated.

Confidentiality..

The location of this site will not be posted on FOG as we dont want anyone else browsing the forum knowing its whereabouts, as they will spoil it and we will lose it.
Anyone posting location details on here will not be invited to future events, and I will edit their posts to remove the location details.
Anyone attending these events is politely asked not to divulge to location to any other groups or individuals and keep it to themselves.

Sorry but now we've got the place, I don't wanna risk loosing it due to the actions of other less responsible 4x4 owners.


Please add your name to the list below if you are going to join us on the 9th October,
please remember to bring a mug for tea, and something to sit on......and keep an eye out for the FOG-BQ supplies thread which will be up nearer the date!!


See ya soon

If I come I wont be doing any major off roading due to my insurance, but does anyone know where I can go to get temporary off roading insurance cover?
If I own it, It's either F****D or a 1 off.

You probably won't, to be honest... Temp cover is one thing, but not for offroad use.
Also, and more importantly, offloading/laning cover on insurance applies to greenlanes, which are part of the public highway network anyhow, and organised P&P events, which these aren't - they're picnics and any offroading is entirely at thy own risk...

That said, if you pick your battles, you can do an awful lot of the woods with no damage to your car. At the weekender, we had a couple of standard cars that did very well with no more damage than a smelly clutch, and a slightly bent sidestep. There's always passenger seats going spare as well.

So come along, meet the usual suspects, you'll have a good time whether you take your motor out or get chauffeured round.
Jim.
