Dates and times

Recommended Posts

I've checked the site today but I can't find on it when (what time) we are expected and when it's all over (again time). I kinda need this information because I want to book my flights while they are still cheap.

I'm not sure of the exact times, but the touring starts early on Friday morning, and I'm guessing we're done late afternoon on Sunday, to give people time to pack up and go home again.

 

I'm sure Clive has got the exact tour worked out by now so he should have a good idea when things will kick off and pack up.

I think the donkey he uses to pull it has a bad leg now, as its so heavy with that .50 mount :-D

The guys from York are driving 200 miles to get there! I know it's downhill from York, so it's gotta be easy for you driving across!

The King of Beckettstan, i like it!!!!

 

Serious question I'd like some input on. I'm covering the event for CMV and have to come up in my less than military Toyota Verso because I don't think bringing the Iltis is either practical or proper. Where are you lot staying and operating from? I seem to have missed something here. I presume you're camping out? I need somewhere to charge batteries and run a laptop from.

Tough times for the press scum. Sleeping in the car has never bothered me. I've done a lot worse.

All very nice, beers, flights, low loaders etc etc

 

But my original question remains unanswered. Maybe I need to have a chat with the man Clive. If you're reading this Clive, look out for a PM from me. And if you're not reading this Clive, look out for a PM from me. To Beckettstan, and don't spare the horses!

Snap - not a problem, I will have a chat with Clive. In fairness, Clive has had his mind else where for one reason or another for the last couple of weeks and it isn;t Bolero business.

I think most people are camping on or near Framlingham airfield. I'm sure there will be people with generators, but either way, I'll have a 12v to mains inverter with me if you need 240v for your laptop. I use it for my laptop, fridge transformer etc.

Cheers one and all.

 

I've learned a lot more now and the org team have been superb. I like to be very organised and not let people down. There are aspects to the event that I want to snap that won't necessarily make it in to CMV but will be worth doing. I'll camp at Framlingham and hope to hitch-hike the daily tour routes with people taking part so my Toyota doesn't get in the way. I want to snap everyone from HMVF and elsewhere taking part and build up a good diary of the run. I would appreciate any assistance with this. Beers will be bought etc and I promise not to look reasonably military-like for those making the effort.

 

Thanks once again. See you all there.
