Thank you @Thomas Varghese for the detailed answer, this is very useful. 

You are welcome @Br. San. Hope you enjoy the time @Carnity. Its the most safest club to practice offroading. Once you start your drives you will understand this. Please adhere to the instructions given by the Marshal at the start of the drive. You can always ask the trip lead to explain again if you didn't understand something in his briefing. Till now I haven't come upon a marshal in @Carnity club who gets upset by any questions raised by any of the driver. They are more than happy to teach you the theory and will make sure you will do it practically and master it as well.

Read the grading structure of the club for your promotions. Apply for it when you feel you are ready for the next level, not when you think the promotions are due because you completed the mandatory number of drives. If possible try to ask the trip lead how did you do during the drive after the drive is finished. This way you will make yourself a better offroader.

Forgot to mention something which is always repeated in the briefing of every drive. "DON"T FIGHT GRAVITY". If you feel your car has started to fishtail and is swaying at the rear immediately ease the throttle and come down the slope. Never try to hold the steering wheel against the direction the car wants to go and never increase power when your car says he can't stay on course anymore. This is the most important lesson I have learned from the Marshals. Criss crossing, slide sloping, ridge riding, self recovery,  the marshals will brief you before they make you attempt those maneuvers and will demonstrate how its done by doing the same in their cars.

@Marcin Wronowski, @Premjit Vappala, @Mawy, @Simon Dawood, @Asem Rashwan, @Vishal Nair, @Usman Basit, @Rouaj, @Muhammad Qasim, @Sergio Big Dawg, @Tom B, @Mohamad Ziad Alhennawi, @Russthis drive is going to be thrilling and exciting, but also quite intense, as all of you are relatively new to the desert. It will require your full and undivided concentration at every step, so make sure you come well rested and hydrated and that and you don’t have any reason for being distracted. 

We will be using Carnity Channel 3 (446,05625Mhz).

Our meeting poiint is confirmed at the end of the Al Qudra - Solar Park Road, next to the Pylon Track: https://goo.gl/maps/VurDujZbhkNZjGah7 

See you tomorrow morning by no later 6:30am (sharp). If possible, try to reach a few minutes earlier, so that you can be ready earlier with your deflated tires and your flags and we can maximize the time we spend in the sand.

P.S.: dear @Br. San, no drop-outs for the time being, so you are currently not in the convoy. Please keep the website/email checked during the day, as in case there will be anyone withdrawing from the drive you'll get your spot.

Hey there @Lorenzo Candelpergher, that's duly noted.

 

The meeting point link seems invalid though. Is that the same location that Guarav posted on the WhatsApp group?

Dear @Mawy, thanks for noticing. There was a cut & paste error. Now the link in the post above is correct and working.
