Tickets now on sale!

 

It's MrsVolant165 here. As you can imagine we have faced challenges securing a suitable site and dates for this year's JOC Summer Camp. In cooperation with John Morgan we have found a location.

It is also our 10th Anniversary as a club!!

 

To celebrate, this year's camp starts mid week on the 17th of August, with two days of exclusive hire of the over 4000 acres available at Walters Arena/Seven Sisters. Wednesday and Thursday we will explore the site.  Friday we are aiming to take in some local Green Lanes, and Saturday/Sunday you are free to explore everything the lovely area has to offer.

 

Walters Arena (Seven Sisters) is often said to be the largest and best off-road site in the UK. As with all of our JOC events, we have exclusively reserved the site for our members.

Does anyone remember, or was a member of the JOA Jeep Owners Association based out of Dunstable and Eaton Bray, waaaaay back in the day, must have been ‘86 or ‘87. Was almost all CJ7s but the guy who ran it had a Scrambler. I found my membership card the other day! That really is old 🤣

Booked & paid. Also booked camping at Brecon Beacons Touring Park as recommended by JOC. Thank you JOC.

Booked from Tuesday to Friday, don't want to miss any fun on Wednesday by travelling! (unfortunately I have to leave Sat morning as going on holibobs early Sunday) 

Never been to this site before, but I do know some of the Beacons area. Looking forward it.

is the cost per vehicle. 

 

Good point, the ad doesn't say. I've assumed the cost is per vehicle for the event. Not sure on the campsite if it is per person or per tent.

Good news !! Two of my night shifts have been covered so I will attend. I paid for my ticket and booked at same Camp site.

 

I was wondering if we were still authorised to use the Waterfall. This was my Jeep in 2015 before it became blue.

Hi Ted,

 

 It was closed when I went there in 2019 but I thought they might have reopened it.

it was closed last year when we went there, a lot of the site is very different now, but still one of the best in UK.
