Vehicle sharing to Berlin / Kinver

Postby oddball » Fri Mar 11, 2011 8:55 am

In these times with continuously rising fuel prices we are all feeling the pinch.
One of the reasons I have set this game up is to help re-dress the slight North- South divide that our hobby has slid into.
The Drakelow Tunnels are situated in the Midlands near Kidderminster about 15 miles West of Birmingham, so for people in the Midlands this is perfect.

As for the people far North or South there will be some driving so it is only sensible that people share the costs and hence their vehicles.

For some reasons that still puzzle me many do not wish to tell others on this forum where they live in there user profile which makes asking people if they can help a slight problem.

So here is a thread to help sort things out amongst you.

As you can all see I am based in Liverpool and may have the ability to take 1 person with me but it will be tight, as I will be transporting quite a bit of stuff to this event.
Also the hours before and after the event that I have to remain on site may be a drag to some.

Once again here is the site address.

We need you on site for 9AM to get signed in etc, we will be looking at about 4.30 for the end.

Drakelow tunnels,
Kingsford Country Park,
near Kinver,
Kidderminster
DY11 5SA

For a location of the second entrance look here we will be using this car park for our tanks and cars as the other car park is to be used for a top side Nam game on the same day.
http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/ms?msid=2 ... 5,0.005493

You will see 2 possible entrances to be used on the day I suspect it will be the one down Sladd lane.

Sorry about spelling of SLAD or SLADD as it should be. :giggle:

We should have some signage made for the day as well just a few more jobs for me :D

Below is the other car park which we will not be using, I just cant delete the photo :whistle:

I dont want to be too much trouble, its not a major inconvince if we cant get a lift from you, as i could just get one of my perants to take us down the night before and sleep in the tunnels, then get picked up the next day (that would give me a chance to recon the site) and it turns out there maybe 3 of us now, let me know how things turn out on your end and thanks for this Porta :good: :)

you will be allowed to saty on saturday night, and to recon the site, though a few areas may be "off limits" due to seting up the game, but the site is very big and worth a walkabout.

OK we need to get the travel sorted out for Rooster and 2 of his mates any ideas guys.
They are in the Stockport area and can help some with fuel costs to anyone going that can take one or more of them. The 3 of them will help bolster the Russian side considerably.

Rooster and co will have a lift on the day. Dunno exactly what Porta has pm'd you, but we can definately give you all a lift (it'll be the evening before, probably around tea-time) now we have an extra car to play with!
