    OK guys got this sorted and now need a date quickly, majority wanted a Saturday in March so please vote accordingly, also need 12 people. Course will involve front and rear wheel drive skids, anti hijack training and high speed reversing £250 per head inc all drinks and lunch full days tuition with maximum time behind the wheel.

    As early as possible in March for me, need to go away to work in the last week.
    Well done for the hard work organising this

    I'll check with my "others" tomorrow; unless they have a preference I'm flexible.

    Re: the EU licences, that's great!

    Do I get more than one vote? :p (also "all drinks" - is this a ploy from the MET? Offer drinks then breathalize you? :p (jk))

    Thank you so much for all your effort! I'm sure I can recruit more than myself; I know my mother should be around (uh-oh!) and a few friends/colleagues. I'll find people if needed ;)

    Thanks for this. Definitely still up for this. A mate may come, I will check and report back. Any Saturday in March is OK so far for me.

    I said 7th - but am flexible if others prefer another date ...14th is most awkward for me....so would prefer NOT that date ...but its not a killer if that becomes the preferred one for the majority.

    Thanks for sorting this....:rock:

    I am away on the 7th and 14th and there's a Masters / Top Hat raceday at Snetterton on the 21st. So 28th for me!

    To get a date we can all make (I could make all...lol) wouldn't it be easier to have a poll on dates you CAN'T make ...then if there is one we can all make -- lets go for that one -- as it stands we are all over the shop on dates...

    Or make it a multiple poll (with a view of who has voted for what date)

    Just a thought...

    Can do if you wish, do you want me to include the April dates as well ? as that was of original interest to some, all please post your opinions and I'll put up a new poll

    I can't confirm my mother until we have an exact date, but the 14th I know she's not in the country hence can't make it.

    I think I may be able to get 2 more once we have a date...

    Update

    Spoke to the Instructors at Hendon yesterday they have the programme all mapped out for us and are just waiting for a date. We definitely need 12 though. Suggest we give it until end of next week for everyone to post their availability and then I'll sort it.

    best regards
    Ian
