kewl kewl well i think they have to be cold hearted if they say no to a charity fund even if you done something like a 30/70% 30 for them but the only down side to that is you have to do it properly and speak to the charity you wish to raise money for as they need to support you and endorse the event so this makes this legal

im still not liking the idea of location tbh. we have to pay to get in (trying to srt anything out will be hassle) if the weather is good it will be packed and noway we can all park together, known speed bump that is an arse (well defiantly to me).

i think somewhere free, or if we have to pay to use a playing field we can charge an entrance fee, with no bumps etc.

i know its not in the right place but mepal rec would be spot on. no bumps and plenty big enough, pavilion with toliets and a kettle. so i think somewhere in a central are like that.

At the Mo, the only downside about thetford is the speedbumps IMO.

The car park is much bigger than you think as not only is there a massive square away from the main stream parking, there's also the over spill area that can be used.

I think high lodge would be great, simply as there's other things you can do.

I'am hoping someone can get more info on the free parking at santon downham.

Once a few area's have been pinpointed, we'll discuss which would be best.

Definately needs to be within the thetford area though

ive never been to thetford and seen enough room there tbh. and last year i went pretty much every sunday without fail. all of the car park sections have cars in.

oh and the overflow carpark has been reduced in size a lot and now consists of mainly picnic area. but i might be thinking of brandon country park now....

Cheers for that mate, saved me having to go over to have a look

Do you know of anywhere else around the thetford area we could go?

Thetford is a good place to meet! Sainsburys/mcdonalds car park is very big! Been to loads of jap meets there when I had my s14a! Free parking a food close! I think it's the perfect location Wink
charity wise, been in the RAF I'm saying "help for heroes" Very Happy

I'll be able to sort the charity side of things at work as soon as we sort a location and date! What are the contenders for location so far then?

I'll spike this up on the splitterz website if you don't mind. We have members from Littleport, Newmarket, St Ives down to Chelmsford. I'm sure someone will pop along

As for the choice of charity, I left the RAF after 25 years and while I've had some scrapes, a mate of mine took a RPG shrapnel throught the nads - he wins. He drives a T25 Westy and he'll show you the scars if you really want

im newish to the forum, but just looking through here, is a really good idea, im in another club called eastcoastdubs? not sure if you were gnaa invite them along or not? Razz

what about Nownton park in Bury St. Eds??, not sure if its central enough for every1 tho?
im also involved in Bury mini club...and we start our charity runs off from Rams Meadow car park in bury?? massive car park, and like a few mile or so from A14?? and i think Bury council are pretty ok, and obv a sunday is free parking, its usually empty, and toilets and a pub near by Smile

sorry if i was buttin in Razz
