Hybrid_From_Hell Posted September 22, 2006 Share Posted September 22, 2006 Hello all, Ok The HBRO (Hants & Berks Land Rover Owners Club) will (via me so be F nice or yer fail at sctutineering ) be in early 2007 running the 4th 'MWWCE' If you have been living on the moon, or are new here or to the 4x4 world then a brief bit : Its an event which has (I hope) grown in popularity, a fun, friendly but serious winch challenge event, run by me for the club in memory of a mate and respected 4x4 Guy called Mike Wolfe, who was killed in an RTA. The event is run to comemorate Mike, and support the business he left behind KCC at Bordon in Hampshire. This is a tough event, members here will testify to this, BUT it can equally accomodate 1st timers, and the punches set are easy medium hard .........and .....to quote Paul W who appeared at one... "You are having a giraffe Barker aren't you ?...up there ?????????????? (he got the punch ) So 2007 cometh, and plans are a foot (means I have strted thinking of it) I have a new selection a cunning plans up my sleeve, you find out about those on the day, but for starters, in general terms I expect thjis to be a 1 day 100 punch event, costs similar to last year Teams of 2 4x4s, - any "light 4x4" (ie nothing bigger than say a 101 no Mogs etc) 2 classes BOTH 4x4 in a team have to select the SAME class ALL 4x4 must be road legal taxed and insured, the event is MSA approved and carries full insurance etc CLASSES : ARC Class - must pass ARC rules NON ARC Class - just about anything ARBs, 37 simex swampers etc etc Non LRs Suzukis Jeeps etc etc Full details will follow so....... Some questions as quite a few here will prob enter ..... DATES Am thinking late Feb through to maybe end April - any preferences or dates to aviod ? Who may be up for it ? Am also thinking of doing "Commemorative" Clothing, ie something like a T shirt, or Polo Shirt, or Sweat shirt, with embriodery logos of all the sponsors AND details of the event and say maybe "Competitor" on them or "Marshal" etc, and ONLY those who qulaify could buy them, I already have 5 major sponsors up to help and the money goes into the event and prizes Winners and runners up might get some of these clothes maybe as prizes amongst other things (yes cups etc) but, if these were resionably priced and made available pre the event to those who qulaify to purchase would you be intersted ? the reason I ask is the bigger the order the cheaper they become within limits..... ? But other than cups etc, what prizes would you like to see at the event ? This is a club event, so we can make changes if people would like something in an event, is there something you wish other event did / offerred that you would like to see on this one ?...if so sqeak up ? So, with all of the above can I have some feedback please ? And if you are interested then pop your hand up to reserve a place, as places will be limited and we are this year writing to a large number of 4x4 clubs as an invite, Press coverage is also covered, so dents will need polishing..............
