Hi All,

Christmas is coming which means (far more importantly) so is the FORCC Christmas Team Event on December the 17th, 2008 :thumbsup:.
The usual fare of munchies will be on offer :drool: and good times will be had by all :lol:.

We try and start a little earlier for the Xmas doo so please try to be at the club early enough for a 7:45 start.

Please get you're name down on the list in the Kitchen if you're coming to it so we can sort out teams etc. prior to the event.

We're also still mulling over the format for this year so if you have any suggestions, please let us know.

Cheers,
Jon.

...not sure what you have done since...

The usual format is the combination of a team endurance race, a break for food and a round of points scoring races. Last year we had Tag team relay races which was a bit different.

The days of the xmas demolition derby are long gone unfortunately/thankfully (delete as required ;))

Still looking for ideas on the meeting format if anyone has any thoughts. Maybe something you've seen at another club?

Cheers,

As I'm sure you are all aware, next Wednesday is the Christmas team meeting. Please arrive as early as possible so we can start as early as possible. As usual there will be food and soft drinks a plenty and we always like to see cars and drivers decked out in Baubles and Tinsel :woot:

The meeting will run roughly as follows:

7:30 Alan's annual sermon (Heckling in encouraged :p) + drivers briefing
7:45 Start of the 1 Hour Endurance Race
8:45 - 9:15 Chargin' time + Munchies + Prize draw & Raffle
9:15 1 Round of Tag Team Races

See you there,
Jon.

Ah ha! i could tell you, but i'd have to kill you afterwards. :lol:
Just got some finishing touches to do tonight and then it's test run time!.... :D
All i will say is..... it's not really what you might call, Aerodynamic! and its a bit heavier than a B44 should be!

I'd be more concerned about the location of his baubles.

16-12-2008, 11:01 AM
There's no tinsel involved.....well on Martin's car at least!!!!! :lol: I've gone a bit mad with the xmas bling tho.....

(and i can state the baubles are hanging exactly where they should be...;))
