Salisbury Feedback / Thoughts

Post by Stu » Sun Nov 24, 2013 5:29 pm

I'd like to open up a thread to capture peoples thoughts on Salisbury this year.

I'd like to know what you liked / didnt like and if you have ideas for what could be better of if you thought some worked well etc.

I would also be very keen to hear from people who havent been before or done much off roading, how was the event for you? Could we as a club do anything better to help new people? One idea I was thinking about was that we could have some club PMR radios that people could use.

Anyway its an open forum, all i ask is that comments are useful for future planning.

Thanks

Stick to the routes, and not drive them backwards....... Del :rasp: :lol:
Stu, the hotel was spot-on, deffo for next year :thumbright:
As for the routes, if people say which lanes they liked, we can try and include them next time (provided the ranges are open etc....) :thumbright:
Gavin did comment to me, that this year was the first that he's completed all of the route, so I guess start time and length is about right :mrgreen:

Oi, that was Mark deciding which way round we did that!! I hadn't started my leadership stint at that stage but had to continue what had been started. :lol: :lol:


If only I could think of something useful to type here!! :(

I thought it was a stroke of genius we got to say hello to everyone and it stopped us catching the group in front ;)

As I've already said elsewhere, it was a brilliant event - big thanks to Stu for organising and sorting an excellent finish venue and for Garry for sorting the routes. :thumbright:

I had a choice of two directions to go at one point - not being a regular user of memory map, it wasn't obvious which way to go - and it would seem I got it wrong :shock: No criticism of the route, just user errot - but perhaps if a crossing point happens next time, then some direction for the muppets like me could be made obvious - or was it just me :oops:

The inclusion of a jet wash at the finish was excellent too :whistle:

Mark, when the route lines cross so do you :rasp: I'm guessing it went wrong in Tilshead? :lol:
