    What do you consider to be the minimum requirements for a meet/rally?

    If you see anything I've missed, add a mini poll in your reply

    Letter or chalk board to let everyone what is going on so everyone feels included.

    Field, water and dumping, marque if it's cold and or wet.. hard standing in winter.. so a school playground would be better than a soggy field. .. the MCC use these.

    thats the utilities taken care of.

    The location would also be a major consideration..

    for example.. is there dog walking close by.. or close to a beach.. etc.

    last of all .. how far away is it from home.. no hard a fast rule here but I wouldn't want to drive say more than 100 miles to get there for a weekend meet.. further if it were a week or more.

    Maybe for many but very necessary for us for medical equipment which runs overnight.

    That just about says it all for us too. Ideally, the location would be on a bus route, or within close walking distance of a train station. :Smile:

    Cheers,

    Jock & Rita.

    Just checked with the tech guy at the hospital on Friday and def need EHU. He was adamant about it. Two machines need pure sine wave, the other will work on moderated. Will check the wattage but we need a 16 Amp hook up on site so I guess it's quite a big draw.

    He also said that if we were to run them off mains we would be liable for any damage.

    A theme for the weekend like a meet close to an activity park or attraction would suit some where as a straight meet in a field with the intention of drinking would suit others but its still a theme or planned activity.
