Hello folks,

Ive been asked by a few club members, to use my knowledge of driving roads, to fix up a little 2 day bank holiday weekend drive out.

Id like to extend the invitation to other forum members and friends, to join us. There are no entry fees, just pay as you stay.

Details as such are;

Dates 25th-28th May 2018.

The 25th being an optional evening and stay over at the start point ready for the morning and, the 28th being the bank holiday Monday to drive home.

The drive its self shall take place over Saturday & Sunday May 26th-27th 2018. Starting at 9am.

The start point is: Eastwood Hall, Mansfield Road, Eastwood, NG16 3SS, 01773 532 532  at £69 per room per team (breakfast £11 per person).

 

The Duke of Wellington pub & hotel, Wellington street, Matlock. De4 3gx. Rooms for the 25th have been reserved. Price is £75 b&b to be paid by entrants upon leaving in the AM.

 

 

Saturday and Sunday nights hotels are kept secret until a certain percentage of the route is travelled.

The hotels for Saturday and Sunday will be between £89 b&b payable by teams upon leaving in the am. Rooms are reserved.

We have driven a very interesting route for the Saturday and, plotted our course very carefully to put folk on the best driving roads to our final destination for the night.

This is not a timed event. The only rule is, to hopefully enjoy the full route we plotted, try to follow the stage notes we give and use your map and team communication skills instead of sat nav.

I could do with a definite list of people by the beginning of May, just so I can confirm all numbers to hotel bookings.

Thanks and, look forward to seeing you,
 
Grez

Hi Grez, thanks for organising what sounds like an epic driving route mate :thumbs:

 

Sarah and I should be good for this (just got to get final sign off from work) so I'll start a list in your opening post :)

I've amended Grez's post because he's done a deal for the Sat night rooms. So they're now £89 :)

Good news. I thought Grez knew his stuff!

Cancel 'away' Paul. This is the first event on your neck on the woods for a very long time!

Would be very interested in doing this, can I book this provisionally. Are the prices quoted for accommodation for two people?

That would be good! :bounce:

 

I'll add you to the list.  You will need to reserve the rooms yourself so you might want to speak to the hotels about their cancellation policy.  I believe the rooms are based on 2.  I'll ask Grez to confirm.

 

As you might be able to tell I've not booked up myself yet, but I'm 90% sure I will be able to make it now :teeth:

Ive reserved rooms for all the hotels, as the Saturday and Sunday night are a surprise.

The first night is optional if youre traveling quite far to be there for the 9am leaving time, as the car park for the hotel listed in the first post, is our start line. You can just meet us there for about 8/8:30 if youre local to Matlock.

The price is for 2 people per room and, theyre a mixture of twins or doubles. Just let me know by the start of May.

No payment is required for hotels until you have used a room. Ive reserved 10 at each place so far. Ill finalise numbers with the hotels by the start of May when more people confirm

Thanks for the info guys, that's great. I'll confirm I'm coming a bit nearer the time and let you know if it's a double or twin required, just in case the missus decides not to come. Would probably come up Friday night.

Good stuff :)

Just a quick note: due to the time of year the drive is hosted over, it was quite tough to have got 10 rooms per hotel reserved. Fortunately the hotels are being fairly flexible to the possible change in numbers but, that doesnt mean theyre going to hold all the hotel rooms till I confirm.

So its first come first served for the rooms I have booked. 10 at each hotel, which I will confirm with entrants who are definitely attending by the first week of May.

Any additional accommodation required if the list goes beyond 10, will be hopefully arranged at the same hotel or, if availability limited by then, we can discuss finding a place within minutes of the destinations :)

Thanks again folks.

I've been waiting on work for this one but sadly it's a no go for me Grez. Our annual conference is scheduled for 24th & 25th May and I've got to be in attendance both days. On the plus side, there's a free bar on the evening of the 24th haha.

 

Hope the weather is good and you have an awesome time  :thumbs:

Unfortunately my diary has filled up somewhat in recent weeks and I'm not sure I'm going to be able to make this now. I'll try and confirm one way or the other asap.

Hey folks. Really need to get some final numbers by Friday, in order to confirm room numbers and cancel the excess rooms seeing as were a month away.

Unfortunately if theres less than 5 including myself by Friday, Ill probably just close the event down.
