Sand Driving Training - Stockton

Some of you may have noticed in the sand failure thread that a sand driving training day was suggested.

I have made some enquiries with a company I did a training day with a few years ago at Stockton Beach - Getabout Training Services.

Getabout are willing to run a dedicated day just for us provided we can get 5 - 6 cars. They would organise for whatever day suits us with a discount of $50, this would make the cost $225 per vehicle. The $50 discount will pay for your fuel.

As I said, I did the day a few years ago with my son and it was a fun, family friendly and relaxed day, but you will learn some new skills and go up and down some big dunes. While I have done a fair bit of beach driving now, I'm still keen to go again.

SO....

What I need to get this organised is to confirm a FIRM day that will suit the majority of people. As a start I suggest the following days over the next couple of months (all Saturdays) :

29/6
20/7
27/7

Once I have an indication of numbers and preferred date, I'll go back to Getabout and confirm details. You will then need to book direct with them under a reference I'll give you later.

I guess they would take 8 or so in the group, but the smaller the group the better day you will have - so first in best dressed. If there is significant numbers showing interest maybe I'll have to draw a line in the um...sand.

Remember, I'm not getting anything out of this so no grief please.

Otherwise, I look forward to meeting you and having a fun day out.

I'll leave this up for a week or so - so who is interested?

Cheers,
GMWK2

Interested, but timing not great. Will see if I can reschedule my calendar.

Bump.

Hmmm. Not much of a response.

I'm wondering if a Sunday would suit people better, and maybe a bit more lead time.

Maybe a Sunday in late August? Would this suit better?

Re: Sand Driving Training - Stockton

Maybe when the '14's roll in you might get a few extras

Re: Sand Driving Training - Stockton

August would be much better, and a Sunday.
I would be a confirmed starter.
I would have my new caravan by then, and a perfect opportunity to have a weekend away trial.

Re: Sand Driving Training - Stockton

Where are all these wannabe MY14 owners? You will have your cars by then. Unless you ask Anne Tanner for permission first.

Great!

If we can get one or two more we can see about making a booking.

BobT - are you in for late August??
