The 2016 RBRR organising committee met on Saturday
As we are all of a certain age and have similar humour the minutes could easily read like a Goon show script but under Tims chairmanship we stuck (mainly) to the agenda items- some of which included the following
Entrant review-The entry is full at 150 - the most we have ever had so we are into unknown territory here -we ask the entry to bare with us,there will be some pinch points with so many cars and crews - New entrants are being contacted by Andy or Dave,don't worry if you haven't had a call yet you will get one in the next couple of weeks - I have had some interesting phone conversations with new entrants,one of the most interesting was with a Reverend -Revving Rev Robottom,(from Rohampton!) a Vicar doing the event for the first time with his wife and two grown up Sons...all squeezed in a Herald!..pre-start car park blessing has been offered!
Another interesting entry ..Steve King car No 140...well no car actually ...read below
We also have 10 on the reserve list ...my personal advice for those on the reserve is get you car ready ..and if you don't make the final entry put you hand up to be a Marshall least then you get to be part of the event!
Rob from the charity www.guidedogs.org.uk Attended...he is very enthusiastic ..(something to do with being young apparently) and stayed for the whole meeting ...Once we realised we had him captive he had the whole history of the works PI team explained to him ..with pictures
DON'T FORGET THE TOP THREE FUND RAISING TEAMS GET FREE ENTRY TO THE 2018 EVENT AND MAYBE THE CHANCE TO CALL A DOG "ROVER" ..or GT6 etc ..
The route was discussed -we will be using some of the old A6 to get to Tebay Services.Nigel is still working away on some of the finer route points -more details to follow with information on the controls,locations and interesting points.
Route book-The design has been agreed we hope you like it ! its got a great retro 1966ish feel to it and will make a very nice personal memento of the event to keep for many years,merchandise short list has been agreed and designs being refined ready for you all to buy from the Club Shop in due time
