    Lee theres no luxuries in a forest :roll:

    Pub - no
    Butty shop - no, bring your cooking equipment and your bacon
    Toilets - use your imagination
    Warmth - no, only when you get in the car and when back at the pub or B&B

    It's more like a survival course if its lashing down :wink:

    you should have recieved an email last night from RST:

    "Dear Andy,

    With only a short time to go before Wales Rally GB 2010, all of the planning is starting to pay off and things are hotting up!

    Having registered via RallyStageTeam for this event, you can now login and print your Signing On Cards which will make the Signing On process quicker - all you need to do is Sign and Date the online cards.

    These can be accessed by logging into and selecting "My Events" on the left hand side. Click on the Stage and you will be able to print your card for that Stage. If you are a Group Leader, you will be able to print all of your Group's Cards.

    In additon, useful Stage Information has been uploaded for each Stage, including Marshal Access Maps, Event Route Maps, Signing On times, contact details, Signing On locations (inc Sat Nav locations and "Nearest Post Code" for access roads) and Stage Maps (for Stages where Stage Commanders have authorised this information to be published).

    Car passes have now almost all been sent out in the post - you can see the date that Car Passes were sent to your Group Leader by looking on the "My Group" information tab against each Stage in My Events.

    Any problems, please let us know - see you next week in Wales and here's to a great Event and good weather!


    Further update:

    I have spoken with Martin Wylie tonight and he will be handing over the stage car passes to me this weekend. He has also very kindly printed off everyones sign on card so no need to print off now. I will dish out when we meet at Lymm Services early Friday 12th November.

    As far as routes and maps to our stage entry points I will ensure we have enough available. At the time we will be leaving there will not be much traffic about.

    I will post another reminder early week with a reminder list of what to take for our trip.

    Please note if you dont have a car stage pass, a valid licence and sign on card you wont get onto stage.

    I am not aware of any plans, but its on the way back to cardif from 2 days, might be worth a stop, if theres a butty van.... I am gonna be hank marvin about that time...... if not asleep at the wheel
    I do know that performance Clothing is on the half way point of the stages we are on,might be worth a walk. Youll get 10% Marchalls discount and probably wangle a few more % if you wave your lads membership under their nose...... (can always try :D )

    When we used to do the GB we would go on the Thursday to do the shopping,but as sweet lamb is one of the northerly stages,it makes an unusual start to the week. :wink:
    Was contemplating staying overnight in Newtown Thursday. :D
