Here's the information you need about our North Weald Activity day on Friday 24th August. [B]Arrival time[/B] Please arrive by 08.45 latest, as the briefing for the day will start at 08:50. The directions and map are [URL=""]here[/URL]. [B]How the day works[/B] The day is very informal, unlike a track day. It is run for us by and our main man is Andy Walsh. Andy is a performance driving instructor and will be happy to give you advice and guidance on handling your car. [B]Lunch[/B] You can take lunch anytime you like, as the activities won't stop. There is a local pub - The Talbot. The address is 275 High Road, Tylers Green, North Weald CM16 6EE. There is also a café on the airfield, but this is quite small and cannot cater for everyone at once. It would be best to stagger the lunch break - some going early around 12.00 and others later around 12.30 or even 13.00. [B]Refreshments and other facilities[/B] There is usually a tea/coffee van in attendance and portakabin style loos - nothing grand I'm afraid, but in good clean condition and we're responsible for keeping them that way! [B]Finish time[/B] The day's fun has to end at 4pm precisely. The control tower guys get upset if we carry on beyond then and poor old Andy gets it in the neck! They will also get upset if we don't stick to the 20mph limit on the perimeter road so please oblige. [B]Some changes to the usual format[/B] This email is later than usual because I have been waiting on some information about the format of the day. A piece of the tarmac that we normally use at North Weald has been damaged and this means a change to the usual activities. For those who have been before and know what I’m talking about, we’ll not be able to have the usual 90 degree bend. However, the upside is that where we normally have two activities in the morning and three in the afternoon, we’ll now have three activities running all day – two cone circuits and the slalom.
