General Discussion / Re: Looks like the national kit car show is on 28/29th August
« Last post by istreatf on August 14, 2021, 10:42:57 AM »
We have a plan. Our new, temporary pitch is 76B, almost the same pitch as the last X number of years (old pitch number 76A) so you will all be able to find it easily. I'm pretty sure it is the one  that used to be the Rickman stand, right next to ours on the entrance side. I am attempting to find the whereabouts of the club bunting, flags, posts and signs as at end of the last Stoneleigh show these were taken back to Pilgrim Motorsport and have not been seen since. 

Please be aware that due to the smaller club pitches, the organisers are discouraging camping on them, and that camping on the dedicated camping areas is preferable, so please, if you are camping make use of the dedicated camping area and not the club pitch.

PLEASE ALSO BE AWARE THAT ALL OF THE PILGRIM CLUB SIGNAGE, POSTS, TENT ETC ARE NOT IN MY POSSESSION SO THE CLUB PITCH WILL ONLY HAVE THE KITNET FLAGS, UNLESS PILGRIM MOTORSPORT FIND AND BRING OUR SIGNAGE BACK (Latest news - all the stuff mentioned is being delivered to the club pitch on Friday)

Following from Colin from Kitnet, which was in reply to my email to him.....

Hi Ian.
Yes I had the email. It's good we are still together at least. I have instructed our guys that camping on the pitch will probably be not possible this year. So they are aware about it.
I'm going up on the Friday to keep an eye on it, as well as be there early each day so I can police our pitch for just our members.
We do have a gazebo I will put up for shelter from whatever weather is thrown at us so tell your guys they are welcome to use it. I will also be doing tea & coffee if they would like some.
Regards the signs, if you get no joy I do still have our 2 kitnet.uk flags that I will put up so you can let your guys know to look out for them & just park up with us.
I will probably have to point people out where to park if the pitch is really small so we can get everyone in comfortably.
Hopefully it will be fine & a nice size so there won't be any problems.
See you there Ian. It will be nice to catch up again.
Colin.

Have you checked the Iva book?

You should be able to use anything as long as it passes the relevant tests for the year it was manufactured.

Yes I have a plan but written before my application was received, along with most of the other clubs, so the plan does not include us so is irrelevant. I’ll post the final plan when received.
No not going to Spa as we would have had to confirm our camping when Belgium was 10 days quarantine on arrival and UK 10 days quarantine on return plus tests both ends. Free for next year again.

Any follow up to this Ian? It almost looks as if they wanted you to chase them!
Ah you still off to Belgium?
I’m keen to go to Stoneliegh as I’m desperate to go somewhere- even got a new tent if accommodation can’t be found in Kennelworth .

Thanks for the update Jon
In my ignorance, I thought that like my Marina engine, the smoothing out when it was warm might have been due to the coke warming up and keeping it running 😏.

How’s it going now and are you getting much use out of it?

Hi Nigel
Did the event go ahead? As so many of these things get cancelled- and if so how many Haldanes turned up and was it any good?
