    Off roading in Beeston Pit

    I have posted on another forum (that when I mentioned it last time, I got told off) about the fact that I can get access to Beeston Pit.
    The pit is used by 4x4 clubs and is available to certain GS clubs on Aug 12/13 19/20 and the 26th.
    The cost is £100 to be shared by those using, and it will be all round to mine
    after for grub and drinks.
    So as not to get confused, I wonder if any interested parties could reply elsewhere.
    Dont want to tread on any toes, upset anyone, cause any waves............................................ and so on.

    Ah Clive, I wondered who would work that out. Well done, you have passed the test.
    So, sod it, just post here, unless I am creating waves, then it will be brought to my attention and we will have to go elsewhere.

    Mike.....who 'told you off' about it??

    Unless it contained the words 'only available to club members because of H&S assessments', I can't see why ...I'm sure a lot of people would like to go

    Thank you Fanum.
    I'm not sure how we stand with H&S, but as far as I am concerned, at the moment I think it should be very open and spontaneous.
    Anyone welcome, any standard, any bike (or maybe 4x4).
    I will chose the date that suits the locals firstly.
    The pit is a large gravel pit.
    Not sure on the size, but I am sure LLama or Treeman may have an opinion, having 4x4rd there in the past.
    As I said before, the cost will be £100 for the day.
    I'm not sure how and if talking about money affects any potential liability, but I am sure that we can get 10 local GSers @£10 each.

    Any interested parties, "post away"

    Mike

    I can't go to Derbyshire on the 19th/20th now, in my other post I have suggested another weekend but haven't had many replies.

    SWMBO has given me a day pass so I'm up for a day in the pit 19th or 20th

    As I said, all welcome for the day, and the evening at mine, with the option to stay over to sober up.

    We just have to pay the land owner £100 between us.
    Any more takers?

    OK, change of plan.
    Sorry, but the date has been changed to Sunday 20th August.

    I have confirmed the booking with the land owner and we can go there the evening before to set out a course of some kind and to cordon off any areas that we think shouldn't be used.
    Chalky has some stakes and tape.
    The offer still stands for a social on the Saturday evening, with a camp over if required.


    Sniper, you can bring any bike you like.
    The pit is in Beeston, 2 miles north of the A47 between Swaffham and East Dereham.
    If I knew how, I would post a gps way point. Maybe Llama can do it.
    I will try to work out how to do it. Don't hold your breath.

    Numbers please.
    Mike.

    With so few of us I would suggest there is no need to mark out a course. we can just make it up as we go along on the Sunday.

    The grid ref is: TF 90336 16590 marked as a sand and gravel pit.

    Entry point is : TF 90711 16635

    I hope this helps.

    Ralph
