Given the weather forecast, hopefully it'll have a back up system that collects the rain on the roof of the boat and uses that to feed a flash steam unit!   ok2

It would seem that the nice chaps at Wicksteed park are going to let us petrol heads run some DEMO runs on the big lake. However we do have to find a 300m boom around the area. Hopfully this can be shorted out.
In the mean time all normal rules will be used at all times.
1 Failsafes will be fitted & Check out before each run by me. OOD.
2 We are only going to run a demo so NO RACING on the lake at any time.
3 If your boat is to nosey you will be ask to stop ASAP and not allowed to run again.
I do want you to bring your petrol head boats and enjoy yourself's but H&S and common sense MUST be the 1st concern at all times.
I will post the BMPRS rule latter today.

  In honour of the 70th anniversary of Operation Dynamo, the Dunkirk "Little ships" rescue,  lets put on flotilla of as many boats as we can.

Hi everyone, have managed to escape from The Village. This may have been answered already,but... What time are we able to get in on Saturday? Is it possible to set anything up on the Friday afternoon? Would I be able to leave a small trailer there overnight so don't have to pack it all up Saturday to set up again Sunday? Thanks, Number 6. :-))

I believe the gates open about 9am and the park is open from 10am.


All, none, some of these people may be present..... limitations of current bails pending.

Some of us will be there about noon on Friday, to set things up. What is in the trailer? could it be parked beside a caravan or tent overnight?.
