    TOTB XIII 26th-27th July 2014

    Hi guys just wondering if there was going to be a totb 2014 team next year? Was a good crack last time

    Andy


    ************************************************** ******************************
    (Hi Andy we are hijacking your first post to keep the list up to date added the dates to the title so people know when it is AP)

    How about if people contribute to a list of all potentials, you can either suggest yourself or someone who we should consider, to get the ball rolling...

    Ken
    800bhp
    Bren
    AP2
    EvoAnd
    Jez/Giblets
    APT Gary
    FMG/Fake Ben
    Madda
    Daz
    Wardy88
    Scottie
    Clai?
    Wutang 200?
    Ronster!?


    I think we need a serious list of contenders this year if we are hoping to get the club to fund the event. We need to give the Commies a list they can not refuse!

    Yes we are already discussing it, and I hope there will be a lot more people to have cars ready this year

    We tried pre approving people 6 months early last year, but that did not go to plan so are discussing best way to get a good contingent ready, all ideas welcome!

    Personally I think if entrants paid there own race fee then the club gave it back on the day ?

    Then the club isn't out of pocket.

    That's a good idea, the only difficulty is that when you register as a team i have to enter and pay for the first five as a block, but I'm sure we can come up with a good idea along those lines. Each year we get let down a lot near the time, but the vast majority are people who really want to do it but have totally genuine reasons.

    Easy solution members pay to the club. Either way it pays your race fee's for TOTB

    Maybe a little suggestion of better communication this year as i got munk on last year receiving a pm at the last minute after bumping the thread with no reply on a few occasions

    Yes we will keep as much in an open thread as possible this year, the staff area thread is essentially the budget thread of who is paying for what, who gets burgers/generator/marquee etc, who is unsured on van, where it is, where it's going, and so on. These things are not easy to organise though, so we'd ask people to be as open and honest/fair to the club as possible, if you are not going to make it please let us know early etc, and from the club side we will communicate back early what we are doing to give all a good chance and get the time booked in etc

    It's not a given the club will support TOTB2014 as there are competing requirements where budget could possibly be better spent, so if we want the club go ahead this is where we need help to put forward a team the Commie's can't refuse to back

    So come on, give us some suggestions of big power cars/superb handling cars/cracking drivers it does not have to be a 200sx, just a club member or trader.

    You could ask for entrants to pay 1/2 the entry fee which would be a deposit which is lost if not enough entrants or redeemable from the next in line.

    To make make car more competitive in the 4wd class next time I'm going to be stripping it over the next few months to loose some weight.

    This is a good Idea, get people who want to compete to pay a deposit of 50 or 100 to the club which is refunded on or after the event. If they fail to make it then the club keep the money, should help weed out all the dreamers

    I hope so, unless we get a good selection of reliable people to confirm early I don't think we will be going otherwise due to the previous years amount of late drop outs.

    The amount of members on here with good power cars, im amazed you actually struggle to get a sxoc team for totb together.
    I thought you should be knocking people back due to the amount wanting to do it, and then you having the choice of the"better specced cars" in the team
    first.
    so your first team followed by a reserve list.
