Nevill Hall Hospital, Brecon Road Abergavenny, Monmouthshire. Sat Nav code NP7 7EG.
The Nevill Hall Social Club is behind the main hospital building next to an old mansion (the Conference Centre) but we will put up Slot Rally direction signs at the front and rear entrances to the hospital.
If you entered before you`ll know to bring your own food, there are no catering facilities at the event, but due to a fall in demand we won`t be offering the Wye Valley Lunch Box, we`ll supply free tea, coffee and biscuits and a microwave. There won`t be bar staff this time but see Phil B on the day, bring loose change and we`ll sort out liquid refreshments.
We recommend the Kings Head Hotel next to the Town Hall in the centre of Abergavenny, with a good restaurant Venue 59 adjacent to it, 01873 853575. http://www.kingsheadhotelabergavenny.co.uk/ Sat nav post code NP7 5EU.
Please add Nick Faulkner-Elliot (Sun) to the list.
We`ll be happy to see you and the family on saturday Gareth, we`re going to have to make an early start putting track up as there is a Dr`s Hallow`een Do at the club on the friday so we can`t start our usual preparation on the thursday. We may leave the spookie decs up if they`re not in the way.
We`ll post a list of stages asap, hopefuly a decision will be made in the next day or two.
For the benefit of anyone who has not tackled the SRGB watersplash before, Bills comment about it being a 'model ruiner' is unfounded, none of my cars has ever been damaged or ruined nor has anyone elses as far as I`m aware.
I remember Bill was reluctant to run through the splash years ago as he was running a cardboard interior in an old Zodiac, so elected to take a maximum time of 180 seconds for the stage for failing to attempt or complete it.
When doing the splash in the past all I`ve done is shaken the water out of the cars and then run the motors up to spin any water droplets out with no problems.
In fact the tyres will have been cleaned by the water ready for your next stage and years ago someone running an old RX powered Scaly Mini benefited from the motor dip when the water shifted the crud and it ran better all day.
We will have on hand, a piece of live track to spin and warm up the motors, a hair dryer, paper towels and if necessary WD40.
Just as an aside I`ve been through a river crossing in Hafren Forest on the Severn Valley National Stages in our Mark Two Escort when the water came in through the doors and half filled the footwells - happy days
