Hi Evryone, just thought i would start a post, incase anyone has any questions about the show, and so we can sort a few things out! to get the ball rolling here are a few things i was thinking about:-

Food

I havent been involved organising this event before so dont really know what you guys and girls usually bring, but it would be cool if people could bring along some food+drinks to share with evryone! we cant have a bbq as japfest dont allow them anymore :-( if your coming and fancy bringing some food along, post up what your bringing so we dont all bring the same things!! [smilie=karls_thumb.gif]

Marquee

We have a small marquee from rebel, but i remember last year someone had 2 of those large coleman event marquees, that would be awesome to have them again, i need the dimensions for when i make the booking, if were using it again!

club banners

Again, i will bring the rebel club banners and possibly the events board of previous events, if a ctro member has all your stuff that would be awesome so we can promote both clubs!

i will add to this post as i think of more things!!

I can't make it, so if anyone on the reserve list still needs a stand pass, send me a pm and i'll let Alex know.

Cheers

Paul

Pics in this thread from last year including sail flags etc. which i have.

Regards

Have done hot food in previous years but don't think it's worth it as most people will either buy from burger van or bring their own gear.

Although claire1985 makes some lovely cupcakes....... :oops: :smile: And crisps/cans of drink etc are always welcome.

I didn't go this year but after organising previous Japfest events I know the work that goes on behind the scenes and as admin on Rebel I would like to thank Alex for all his hard work organising this as well as others who arranged convey's etc.

Spoken to a few people who attended and it seems a great day was had by all. Look forward to seeing the photos :)

You were simply awesome on track mate. Couldn't believe the speed you were carrying and how quick you caught up/lapped everyone

2nd session S7 at 14.54pm. Accidently zoomed in on the camera but still watchable. Had a great battle with a Toyota Celica GT4 I think :think:

Pics thread HERE

Was good day, plenty of people about chatting and cleaning, albeit probably beaten by the weather! I know when i got there mine was filthy!

Thanks to Rebel representatives for stepping into the breach organising insurance and passes/meeting points etc.

I know there will be a few words had by some regarding size of the site, however seems we weren't the only ones as itr owners also had issues with being where we were, which doesn't make track time very easy due to distances to travel to get there etc. but we'll provide feedback in the normal manner and hope that we are heard. :smile:

Hope to see more there next year! :thumbup:

Cracking photos and thanks Dan as always great to have ctro mod/admin join a club event. Sorry I couldn't be there but had 5 of rebel committee members there who are the back bone to the club so I knew everyone was in safe hands ;)

I have always send a thank you email on behalf of both rebel and ctro to the official Japfest organisers with any feedback I get good and bad, to be fair they have always welcomed it. Last year I mentioned the traffic issues which I think a few clubs did one way or another.

As mention I wasn't there this year but I have had feedback from rebel members and everyone enjoyed by the sound of it.

Stand space is always a big issue at these events however I will mention that both ctro and rebel always give 100% attendance I'll also mention a lot of our members go on the track however I do think if we can get a club only session we will have a better chance of getting closer to the pit area.

Roll on the next event I say.

Rebel have Pembrey the end of the month and The Rebel Rally weekend in June etc so see some of you there.

CTRO at JAE next so get your names down and money into Cat ;)
