Welcome to the usual Friday Stats and News regarding our event :-)
In the past few days the UK government has given the go ahead for outdoor events to take place as long as all statutory precautions are adhered to, so our event has moved from 99% sure of running to 100%.
I have brought in supplies of hand sanitiser, signage to remind people to use it, and attendees will be strongly encouraged to remain socially distanced on the day. With the Rotary Club involvement we will also have more marshals than ever to ensure you get parked up correctly and without issue at the main event.
We are limiting attending Jaguar numbers to 150 currently to ensure we can look after everyone, but this may be increased a little, closer to the date as resources come into place for us.
Denbies have confirmed they are happy to host us, and will be supplying all the usual amenities such as toilets, shop, restaurant, carvery and so on considering social distancing.
I am currently working on the Welcome Pack information inserts and we are including instructions from the W.H.O. on how to use hand sanitiser correctly to help ensure everyone remains safe, and we have (finally) migrated from RAC/AA route sheets to our own custom sheets.
I am in discussions with almost all our event sponsors and trade stand operators, as a huge percentage of them have been struggling (as everyone has) with the lockdown and have not been able, yet, to confirm their levels of involvement.
Our 2021 calendar competition, running in association with Scratchshield and with all proceeds going to the RNLI closes this weekend - so please get your votes in on the events Facebook group before then to ensure you have a say in whose images will be in the calendar :-) Please note Scratchshield will be awarding a prize to the image they love the most and awarding the owner the title of Scratchshields Jaguar of the Year'.
We have just issued Access Pass 102, so there is only 48 places still available at this years event currently, so if you would like to attend one of the few not-for-profit grassroot Jaguar events still running this year please, please register asap or you may miss out.. and don't forget we support both the RNLI and The Rotary Club so not only do we connect you with trusted specialists, and companies that depend on Jaguars in the bigger eco system, but we also help society outside of the world of Jaguar.
It is not long now until our first event Autumnal event so please keep a close eye on our forum threads, website and facebook Group for the very latest info as we go, and if you haven't registered your Jaguar yet please do at www.jaguarforumsUK.com and join us :-)
