Finish: The Highwayman Inn (BA4 4LY)
Entry Fee: £8
Entry by contacting Geoff Sutton on gsu180 at hotmail.co.uk
Make a note in your diary to join us for the fifth Mendip Meander which will be run in the afternoon of the date above. The first four were well received and proved to be fun social events for those taking part.
The format will take crews around the countryside on an unhurried, untimed drive to areas that they might otherwise not visit.
The route to be followed is described in a straightforward form - mainly by tulip (junction) diagrams. To provide a competitive element crews are required to look out for certain features along the way which relate to the list of questions given at the start. The crew able to interpret the clues and answer the most correctly will be deemed the winners. The event is classed as a treasure hunt so no special vehicle insurance is required but entrants should make sure that they are covered by their own policy for this type of (non speed) event.
The event will start and finish at The Highwayman Inn (BA4 4LY) on the southern side of Shepton Mallet where the afternoon’s experiences can be compared after the event. Food and drink will be available at the start and finish venue (carvery at lunchtime and normal menu later).
Crews may leave the start at any time between 2pm and 3pm. The total length of the drive will be about 20/25 miles and should take a couple of hours .
As mentioned above this is not a high speed competitive event but rather one for the family to join in with. Husbands, wives, partners, offspring, friends etc. are all welcome. The entry fee will be £8 per car to cover paperwork, prizes, permit fees etc. Details of how to enter are given below. Look out for updates in future issues of “News and Forthcoming Events” emails
Mendip Meander 5 - Entry applications
There is no entry form or pre-payment for this event but in order to prepare sufficient paperwork and to forewarn the kitchen at the finish venue of the food requirements after the event I will need to know the following details from prospective entrants:-
1. Names of driver / passenger(s)
2. Number of people wishing to eat at The Highwayman Inn and at what time.
The establishment serves Sunday lunches. Those wishing to eat before the event should make their booking direct with The Highwayman (01749 331247).
Evening serving begins at 6pm. As the establishment has asked to be forewarned I will send a menu to those wishing to eat on their return and ask for choices.
Entry fees will be collected at the start.
No club membership is required and any (roadworthy!) vehicle may be used although owners of interesting vehicles may like to give their pride and joy an airing.
Thank you, Geoff S
