View Full Version : Getting involved for the club

18-Mar-10, 07:08 PM
We the club have been appoached by a Mr David Williams. This man organises a festival in Evesham. This takes place from 11th to the 13th of June on the banks of the river Avon.
At the event there will be classic cars, super cars and other car clubs. As well as live music all weekend a large fun fair , hot air balloons, firework display, night glow to music..........and a bar!!. All this for FREE.
This year the organisers wanted a different theme which will involve us. We have been given a large area in the centre of the meadow to do our stuff. David Kemp has agreed to do his thing with the punters which is great. The crusiers we are hoping to have river access. Its a nice fresh water river for a change. Restrictions i,m sure will apply as ever.
This will be a great family weekend with lots to do. Just bring a craft to use or just to display and enjoy the weekend.
This means the club needs your help. It is rare we get an oppertunity to have access to this much free advertising to 12 to 15 thousand people. The world champs are just around the corner and a golden oppertunity to spread the word of our club.
All i,m asking for is a min of 10 craft. Five racing five cruising not much to ask. Please do not leave this to the usual suspects many hands and all that!!!!!.
So whos up for a great weekend.

if i have a working craft i will be there!

If your craft is made out of match sticks and isn,t fit for purpose bring it. These people are intrested in all angles from the trailor to the craft. Even if you are sat on the grass covered in spanners this will cause intrest and something for the public to view...... get involved!

We will be there mate, no probs. I'll be up on Friday helping set up. I'll get Worlds and Club flyers sorted, you never know the Peewit may even make as appearance by then...

This has all the makings of a great bit of PR for the club so as Chalk says, get involved!!

As earlier PM'd - Our BBV is just out of the mould and still shiny. Carla and I will be only too glad to show it off and give a newbies perspective. Mind there will be cruise training and the odd Novice race in between....

As usual the cruising side of the club have come forward for the club. 5 cruising craft have already contacted me more than pleased to go out of there way to promote the club. But only 1 racing craft. I want 10 craft min. Half and half would be great........ I,m not doing this because i have endless free time.

Hi Bryan, no clan this time as I am now officially homeless!!!!

I am currently lodged with a friend pending finding somewhere to live when I find some money!

Ah nice one John keep giving those reluctant club members a push. For those who are making the effort just to say thanks. I,d like to add that the area provided to us is limited for campers. So i am suggesting that if your coming please be pulling something behind it.
I have just sent our club event risk assessment in and i,m hoping this will give us access to the river Avon. I will keep this updated as more info arrives.
