Dear @JanS and @Talal H as this is a Fewbie level drive, and you are both still Newbie, I will need to remove you from the RSVP. Kindly sign up for a newbie level drive instead. Thanks.

I see. I did a fewbie drive last month (having done a number of desert drives outside the club) so I thought it was ok to sign up. But noted. @Frederic

Hi @JanS below some info on our grading and levels;

 

After completing a Newbie drive, you can request a fast-tracked promotion to Fewbie level if you can document your previous drives and experiences from another club (number of drives and which level).

@Richard Franks@Martin M@Zak_@Andrew John Melvill@lucas amat@DP1011@Ben Lee@Sandeep Nayar@Prithvi Raj@Vijay Cowlagi@Nizar Shawwa@Zubair@Ahmed Farouk@Hani Howeedy@Islam Soliman

With the hotter weather, it will be crucial to arrive on time so we can move on time. Please ensure to arrive by 06AM latest.  This means it's advisable to arrive by 5:45 so you have time to deflate, greet the other team members, and get your flag up. 

It's a larger convoy for a typical Fewbie drive, so my aim will be to try and cover some good ground. With the expert support and help of @Islam Solimanand @DP1011 i am sure we will be having a great morning out.

We will use Channel 2: 446.031 Mhz.

See you all in the morning ! PS if you are coming from Dubai on the E66, you might witness the amazing sunrise on the left hand side from behind the Oman mountains !

I’m sorry to hear that @Abhilash Kottakkal. You are definitely not the first one to encounter this. Myself and a few colleagues encountered the same thing a couple of years back. It took the bank 6 months to reinstate the money on the account. Even the bank had no clue as how it could happen. According to them the wireless tapping could have been the issue.
