J10 Canned! new smaller scale event announced!

Postby jeepers » Fri Feb 05, 2010 3:52 pm

I recieved an email from the 4wd assoc. stating that due to insurance reasons J10 has been cancelled and it is too late to find alternatives.Another 4by friendly 4wd event has been proposed for the June long weekend at the Orange showground has been proposed to be run in J10's place.They are looking for clubs to help in the running of this event,so wanted to get members feedback on what they think.Details are here



at Orange


As some of you will have been aware, Downunder4x4
Club has been trying to get the Association
Jamboree 2010 (J10) off the ground for several
months, and have had issues with securing a venue,
and then once the venue was almost nailed down,
getting hit with unreasonable demands for
insurance. This has led to a decision to abandon
J10 – there is just not enough time left to
organise the event.

However, all is not lost – we are determined to go
ahead and have an event on the originally planned
date (June Long Weekend 2010) – an association
gathering is long overdue . The event will be held
at the Orange Showground.

Last week representatives from DownUnder4x4 Club,
Canobolas Club, the Association and Orange Council
met at the site to discuss a way forward and start
planning for the event.

We are planning an informal family oriented
weekend at Orange. Camping is available at the
showground (both powered & unpowered sites), cabin
accommodation is also available in the caravan
park adjacent to the showground. And then of
course if your family isn’t into roughing it in
the open in winter, there is also hotel/motel
accommodation available in the town. On the
subject of cold weather – yes it will be cold
(winter is like that), however we will have access
to the pavilions at the showground site, and the
main pavilion, with a seating capacity of around
300 or so, will be heated, so if the weather turns
real wintery, there will be somwhere cosy to get
yourself and the kids out of it and thawed.

The showground also has a large arena, where we
can organise fun style events. So the plan is to
spend the weekend with a mixture of scaled-down
Jamboree-style events at the venue, combined with
trips into the surrounding area (eg a tag-along to
Ophir, or through the forests around Mt Canobolas).

And this is where the member clubs can really help
us out. We are keen to run this event, but will
welcome assistance from clubs in helping us make a
success of it. In the first instance, I would like
to get an indication of which clubs will be
participating, and a ball-park figure on number of
potential participants. I would also like to get
an indication of what aspects of the event you
would be interested in assisting in the
organisation & running.

Please send any responses or queries to
club.secretary@downunder4x4.net

So lets work together and make the event a success
for the Association

Regards
Nigel Cox
Secretary
Downunder4x4 Club

I think we can generate enough people to go to this and both compete and help out as in black rats 09. I would be happy not to comp but to wheel in the local tracks if that's all I get time for.

Orange is a prick of a place at that time of year it's bloody cold, I lived there for 3 years if it was in the summer time I may of gone but not a chance in the winter. the showground is not that big either it would be close quarters camping if a big crowd turned up

Unfortunately no, plans to hold Black Rat on the JLW were cancelled when J10 was announced. It's now too late to organise an event the size of Black Rat.
We are currently trying to organise a smaller much harder event on the same property over the JLW http://www.outerlimits4x4.com/ftopic200974.php.
I'm currently looking into hosting Black Rat again later in the year, all the clubs that attended last year will be notified as soon as a date is set.
