As we have been respecting authorities guidance & Carnity COVID guidelines to resume desert drives with caution by staying inside our car at all times.

Unfortunately few off-roaders have difficulty in understanding and abiding these guidelines.

As published in the national newspaper of UAE, everyone need to understand that still there are no gatherings allowed and authorities are issuing fine for 10,000 AED for host and 5,000 AED for attendees.

If we really like these offroad drives to continue, then everyone need to police each other at all times and remind everyone to be inside their cars at all times.

If you spot anyone stepping out of the car after deflation and before inflation, please remind them on the radio to go back inside their cars, immediately.

As we all are in this together, so we all have to help each other to remind and stop socializing during any stuck or at play area.

Failing to abide below list of restriction will result in ban from Carnity Off-road Club:

FIRST WARNING

  • Minimum 1 month ban from driving with Carnity off-road Club.
  • Written warning will be issued by the trip lead.

SECOND WARNING

  • Minimum 6 month ban from driving with Carnity off-road Club.
  • Written warning will be issued by the trip lead.

If you do not like these restrictions, please stay at home and do not join for any off-road drives.

Every Carnity Off-road Club Member has to COMPLY WITH THESE COVID19 GUIDELINES

  • Stay inside the car - AT ALL TIMES - Except for inflating or deflating tires.
    • For inflation and deflation - ONLY ONE PERSON IS ALLOWED TO BE OUTSIDE.
    • FACE MASK IS MANDATORY, WHENEVER YOU STEP OUT - NO EXCUSES.
    • No one is allowed to step out of the car for any reason:

      • Not for taking videos and photos
      • Not for socializing and chatting
      • Not for smoking or drinking
      • No kids playing/running

    • Read the detailed instructions posted here - to configure.
    • If you still cannot configure, ask on forum ahead of time.

Thank you all for joining the drive and following all precautionary measures throughout the drive.

@IMAMP @Remco Snoek @Jeffrey Osito Pilgreen @Martin. all reached on time and were waiting for me when I reached to the meeting point. We introduced ourself on radio and moved to the deflation point and after short check list and breafing through radio we started our drive. Me off-roading after a long break I kept it easy. I had marked my track in two parts, the first part as a warm up area, we drew there for 40mins with two stuck while ridge crossing   @IMAMP and @Jeffrey Osito Pilgreen tried self recovery but couldn't make it. We had to tug and kept moving. Second part we had some good set of small and medium size dunes were we did some side's and everyone performed well without any stuck, we were able to finish our drive on time by 7pm. I hope everyone in the convoy enjoyed the drive and looking forward to meetup again and explore some new areas.

      This drive is organized in full compliance with the COVID19 guidelines. We expect every member that joins this drive to respect and follow these guidelines strictly in order to not jeopardize someone's health and to ensure we can keep organizing these drives safely.
      MUST READ: Not following these rules and precautions = Not allowed to drive.
      No Gathering | No Briefing | No BBQ | No Eating Together | No Touching | No Hugging
      We are only allowed to drive through the desert, as we are driving on the road now. So we will only do the desert driving just by sitting inside our cars at all the times and leave the drive without socializing or coming close to each other.
      Just like before we like to continue our desert drives through out the year, but this time we need your immense support to understand the strict control and to help everyone follow them all the time.
      How to maintain "STRICT" Social Distancing
      Meeting point will be set slightly (100m - 200m)  inside the desert track. You individually deflate your tires on the tarmac before reaching the meeting point. While deflating tires, stop cars 10 meters away from any other car. Drive signup on calendar will be closed on Thursday morning by 9 AM. Convoy numbering and briefing will be posted here on this drive post before 6 PM on Thursday. All participants need to read & acknowledge the briefing by clicking "Totally Agree" reaction. Switch on your radio when you reach the meeting point on the set frequency advised by the trip lead in the critical briefing here. Once everyone reaches to the meeting point, everyone stay inside the car at all the times. Trip lead will do the roll call, convoy numbering recap, critical briefing over the radio. Any suggestions or issues will be discussed over the radio too. You can also speak to other members through the radio only. So please make sure that your radio battery is fully charged. Once all set, trip lead will start the drive as before.
       
      Refusal and Recoveries with Social Distancing
      Every drive will have 1 lead Marshal and 1 or 2 supporting senior members/crew. Whenever there is a stuck or refusal, only a Marshal / Senior Member / Crew is allowed to handle the situation. Everyone else including the stuck car driver, stay inside the car - AT ALL TIMES. Marshal / Senior Member / Crew is only allowed to step out to access the situation and do the recoveries: They will wear mask and gloves at all times when they are outside their car. They will try to help self recover through the radio guidance. If not they will use required recovery gear and do the needful (shovel, tug or winch, as required). If at any time Marshal require help, then only you are allowed to step out by wearing face mask and gloves at all times.  
      Drive completion and inflation
      There will not be any gathering or sitting down together for food-break like before. Once drive is finished, after reaching the tarmac, everyone is requested to move away 10-20 meters before starting their inflation. For drivers having no compressor, can head to the near by fuel station. If drive is ending at a place where there is no fuel station near by, then trip lead will inform in advance so that drivers having their own compressor can join only. Strictly no sharing of compressors, radio, shovel or any recovery gear, at any times.
        Mandatory things you require to attend the drive
      Face mask - at least TWO face mask is needed in case one get damage or fly away. Disposable rubber gloves - at least two sets are needed. Wear face mask and gloves at all the times, when you are out of your car. Carry plenty of hand sanitizer and object sanitizer (spray). Use your sanitizers generously, whenever you step out to help or recover. Sanitize your hands before getting back into your car. Sanitize your recovery gears, if you have used them. Fully charged and programmed radio - without any excuse - No radio = No drive. Shovel - Must for every car, to do little self recovery Safety flag - Must for every car, like before Compressor - If joining the drives that is ending far from the fuel station.
        Mandatory precaution that you need to take at all times
      Do not step out of your car UNLESS/OTHERWISE advised by Marshal / Senior Member / Crew. No shaking hands, hugs or touching each other. No sharing of food, drinks or recovery tools. If you are not feeling well, please stay at home and take a lot of rest. If you have travel in last 14 days, then please do not attend this drive. If you feel unwell during the drive, please let trip lead know so he can plan an early exit. Not more than 3 pax in a car and if all 3 aren't living together, then they should wear the mask inside the car too.
        Two Way Radio Guidelines
      Every Offroader brings his own radio, programmed to the frequencies described in below advice topic. We will not share spare radios or program your radio on the drive. If you need assistance in programming the radio, post a topic on the Carnity website with your questions and we will help you out.  Make sure your radio is fully charged. It will be your only way of communication while driving. Before buying, please carefully read below advice so you are informed properly on which model / cost / shops... No radio = No drive. It is an essential tool and you should make sure you bring it on every drive and learn/practice how to use it.
