    Just making dentative enquiries at the moment,,

    Would any members be up for a 3-4 day end of season chill out Rally at the Clay Pigeon Raceway & Kart track,, on the Yeovil to Dorchester Road.

    End of September beginning of October... Weather usually nice,, Be good for any Clay Pigeon Shooters or Go Kart fanatics,

    If enough numbers were up for it, I could ask a friend who owns a coach Company for a deal to drop us off in Weymouth one day and take back to the site 4-5 hours later,, (No driving,, so have a wander round town and a few drinks and perhaps a meal)
    Or a day trip to Yeovil Fleet Air Museum, again not sure of entry fee`s.


    At the moment it is just an idea,, so no knowledge on camp fee`s or shooting/karting prices..

    The site has Grass & Hard standings.. If you Google Earth.. (Clay Pigeon Dorset) you will get a good picture of surrounding area,, Approx 16 miles from Weymouth & 18 miles from Yeovil,,

    Could make it a 3-4 day meet, It`s up to you what do you think ? :Smile:

    If enough interest I will find out pricings etc.. :thumb:

    hi old mo, and welcome back.

    WE may be interested but all would depend on dates really.

    If you are looking at October, it may be best to do it on the half term week as some of us are bound by school holidays.

    we are often away October half term and a bit of karting and Shooting sounds good.:thumb:

    When is half term,, we have not had to arrange holidays around childrens schooling for 30 odd years,, bit out of touch. :Rofl1:

    A day trip !!! "Brisey" You can walk round Weymouth in 25mins. :Wink:

    I have another meeting with the owners on Monday or Tuesday,, to thrash out minimalistic charges :Wink:

    If you google Earth (Clay Pigeon Dorset),, you will get a good birds eye view of the site,,

    If it comes of we can have the field on the left, just behind the ploughed one,, should the weather be dodgy we can have the whole of the car park to the right of the big marquee.

    They have Kart meets most weekends,, but if enough interest is shown they will let us have the track friday eve/night. (Not sure if it is floodlit, so anyone wanting to have a roust round the track,, bring a torch and some gaffer tape :Rofl1:)

    The Karting and Shooting will have to be sorted out later..

    They have offered us free of charge, their brand new hall with dance floor/stage and seating for 100/150,,,, for free,,

    Could we put something on for the Saturday night ?? :drink::whistle: Can any member play a guitar,, any singers ?

    I am aiming at the weekends of the 16-17-18th Oct,, or 23-24-25th Oct,, I shall be there on the Thursday so any members wanting an extra long weekend is more than welcome..:thumb:

    I will post again after our meet with the owners.

    Thanks.
    Maurice..

    Hi old mo,
    Our son has recently returned from Afghanistan and is in the Fleet Air Arm based at RNAS Yeovilton. We would be interested in further info on dates etc. We have done the FAA museum before and would certainly recommend a visit; Flying arm of the Royal Navy, see and learn about helicopters, aircraft- Fleet Air Arm Museum
    However, the idea of a trip to Weymouth sounds good :Cool: - retail therapy for her :BigGrin: and alcoholic therapy for him :thumb:

    Kath will be hard pressed to find any shops open,, the rate they are closing down.. :Rofl1:

    But spose thats not a bad thing ,, gives you more money to spend and participate in the hundreds of boozers and clubs :Wink:

    If it all comes of,, Will have to have a vote on Weymouth or Fleet Air Arm Museum..:thumb:

    Never been to the FAA museum but I would really like to visit.

    Old Mo - I would be interested in a get together as I'm hoping to collect my MH in mid September from the converter who is near Yeovil so end of September would be good for me, are the dates fixed as yet ???

    Hi Losos,,
    Census of opinion at the moment is the half term for children which so I am given to understand starts approx 23 October,, and that week is pretty quite at Southern Leisure centre. Most other weekends are booked either with Kart Racing proper or international Clay Pigeon Shooting, that is one of the reasons for the mid to end of October,, Hope you can still make it. :thumb:

    Most weekends are booked with shooting comps.

    I will try for a spring weekend.

    No need for apologies, you tried, and you've told everyone well in advance, so nothing lost, and many people wouldn't even try.

    Spring 2010 is actually better for me so I'll try to keep an eye open for your new thread, if I miss it please feel free to PM me.
