The site is a restored gravel extraction facility. It has no mains services so we will be bringing in water, power and toilet facilities for public and entrants. There will be a charge for electric hook up per unit (families of up to 6 people). Multiple take offs from one hook up will not be permitted – this temporary supply is a significant cost to provide and we need to try to reach break even by all who use it paying fairly please!
The National Water Sports Centre is partnering us on this event. They are providing hotel facilities for us along with use of their showers from the 4th June onwards. Each shower will be charged for.
The ground is fair, grassy and level. There are no difficult or abrasive areas for hovercraft to fly over so damage will be limited to how often you crash! Sheep graze on the land but there will be penned in out of our way for the event.
Pets are welcome but clean up after them. Sheep chasers are to be kept on leads please (both human and pets)!
How to book – most fees will be collected via the HCGB web site – a special event page has been set up for your use. The midweek activities will be paid for as used although we need commitment for some of the features – see the booking pages on the HCGB site.
SOME VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL SITE USERS
SHOWERS – you will have a token for each shower you purchase, you can use the token on any day from 16.30 on Monday 4th June. YOU WILL NOT BE PERMITTED ACCESS TO THE WATER SPORTS CENTRE CHANGING AREAS WITHOUT A TOKEN. There will be children taking part in the centres own activities who may not be accompanied in the changing areas and so security will be tight.
Anyone found attempting to enter the changing and shower areas unauthorised may be detained! YOU HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY WARNED!
The landowner will be running the gate and accepting all entrants to the site. The people on the gate will not know who you are and will refuse access to anyone who does not have the correct wrist pass.
There will be a minimum entry fee of £10.00 for anyone without a purchased pass from race control (at first entry – a copy of the sales transaction will be needed to get on the site).
The entrance gate area will be manned 24 hours and there is no other way on or off the site with vehicles so once on site your property will be relatively safe. Respect the gate staff who have a job to do – it’s for your benefit. Arrivals and departures between 02.00 and 06.00 to be avoided please.
