Jeep Owners Club Weekend Adventure 15th - 16th August 2020


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

Here is hoping that this finds you and your families safe. 

Given the restrictions and guidelines this year, we have not been able to get out and do our normal reccies for green lanes. Also, social distancing rules out our fabulous marquee, BBQ, live band and charity auction.

BUT, with Jeep being the unstoppable legend and in the spirit of the brand we all love we WILL be holding the Jeep Owners Club Weekend Adventure. The main event consists of a small but unused off road site in the Slindon Valley for our private member only use on Saturday the 15th of August.

 

This site is ideal for us to hold recovery and winch training. And then the next day the popular Slindon Safari 4x4 site on Sunday the 16th of August where we will have our very own Sophie on hand conducting 4x4 tuition and no shortage of opportunities to catch up with other members, latest mods, best deals etc.  

 

  •  4x4 Driver Instruction
  • Drive the Slindon Safari 4x4 site 
  • Recovery/Winch Training

 

Tickets for the Jeep Owners Club Weekend Adventure  are:

 

  • £36 for VIP members,
  • £48 for Gold members, 
  • £56 for Silver members.  

Advance ticket sales only, and your ticket is for the weekend whether you choose to attend one or both days. You must be a member of the club (easy to join) and road legal Jeeps only.

 

So, two days of offroad site privately hired for members only, recovery and winch tuition on Saturday,   4x4 tuition on Sunday included with your ticket,  a small goody bag and of course meeting up with fellow awesome members of our club! There will be a burger van at each site too. Joining instructions will be sent to paid ticketholders closer to the event.

 

Camping

Optional Camping Thursday 13 August to Sunday 16 August: Very limited camping spaces are available this year, but we managed to reserve a block of safely spaced pitches at a full service campground. You need to book directly and pay the campsite directly and tell them you are with the Jeep Owners Club when booking in order to get our club discount and access to our section. These twenty spaces are first come first serve and at a discounted rate of £20 per night for two people, tent and Jeep or £25 per night for one of only four hardstanding pitches with electric hook-up. Again, you will need to book directly with Washington Camping and Caravan Site on 01903892869 ask for Karen and say Jeep Owners Club for our reserved section and discount. Once these are gone they’re gone.

After our first off road day finishes at 5pm, and for those who wish to camp in the wild with no facilities, you can do so for £10 at the main Slindon site. This needs to be pre-booked and paid for in the JOC shop. After the offroad driving ceases at 5pm Saturday there will be strictly no driving of the site trails after that time given the restrictions (and immediate neighbours that include the site owner.) 

We hope that you can appreciate the amount of effort that has gone into holding any type of event this year. Everyone is looking forward to meeting up and having a great time. 

*Ticket is per road legal Jeep, entitles you to Saturday and Sunday offroad sites, 4x4 tuition, winch and recovery tuition.

*Limited optional camping is available to self-book at Washington Camping and Caravan or Saturday night only wild camping booked and paid through the club.

Hi, 

 

It is a weekend ticket one price you can do either one or both days. We do not anticipate any pay in the gate this year to simplify all that is going on.

Hi, you can drive site A anytime up till 5pm Saturday. Sunday the same applies to the main Slindon Safari site B. One site each day, smaller one Saturday with recovery and winch training.

Wild camping is no facilities just nature and usually you take what you need to stay ecologically friendly. We will check to see if the toilets will be available but given the current Covid situation we think no there will not be any for wild camping. The main campsite Washington Camping and Caravan has all the comfy amenities.

Hi my brother and myself went to slindon last Sunday on their pay and play day. The two portaloos were. Available. 1 for males. 1 for females. Can always contact John Morgan to confirm these will be available. The portaloos are on a trailer. Not sure if these can be transported over to slindon valley for the Saturday.

Hi Jim

 

Couple of questions in regards to wild camping:

- are we allowed to camp anywhere on the Slindon Safari site?

- assume we can bring gas stoves/BBQ for cooking but is a camp fire allowed?

 

Cheers

Nick

Hi Nick, from John the owner he will direct you to the designated camping area. Trail type cooking, gas type stove is fine. No fires on the ground are allowed.
