Hi :(
It is with regret that i am PUTTING THIS POST UP , as i have posted on the Round Great Britain Run 2005 i think that we needed 5 full runners to do the run,although there is interest in clubs doing individual days i have failed to get enough interest from people to do the full run :(
So i feel that i have no other option but to CANCEL the Run :( :(
To all that showed an interest in doing the run THANK YOU

SPECIAL THANK YOU TO
DK (Dora) & Soggy Corn Flake (Bob) For ALL your HELP & SUPPORT
I hope to catch up with you ALL on another run soon :)
Cheers
Mark
:( :(

As Scoops and Saggy have both said, good luck with it all, and if you come anywhere near Bristol I am more than happy to help as I did this year.

RGB-II. It's Alive!

Hiya Yorkie. Good to see you taking the reigns of this run and it's alive again. Apparently shares at Autoglym went up yesterday ;)

As I said on the PM's we exchanged I'm happy to help out in whatever way I can. I guess the route we will be taking will be similar if not the same to that discussed before but maybe it might be worth debating again. To be honest I dont really mind where we go because this year it was all about the atmosphere, the friends we made and the money we raised. I think it'd be good to keep that in mind.

Fully committed 110% Time to get the moth balls out of my straight jacket now :D

I thought this is now a straight run and not one to raise money :confused:

As I said, good luck to you all :)

DK :) :apple:

... I do think it would be a wasted opportunity to not think about sponsorship for this event, after all that was the whole point of it last time. :)

I don't think there should be any limits imposed on minimum sponsorship, or stumping up amounts up front, that was discussed on the previous thread. I think this just serves to make people quit the run before they've started. I think it would also be nice for the part runners to pay a little money to join us for part of the run, perhaps in the form of a collection bucket at each meet point. Again, no fixed amounts, just whatever is thought appropriate.

Mark / All what are your thoughts?

I have asked for a copy of the run notes already planned, however NOTHING is set in stone and if anyone has any thoughts or suggestions on new routes please let us know :D
As regards to sponsorship please look at 1st post .

Hi mark,

Great to see the new thread up and running. Good luck and anything i can do to help, just ask.

Am with Ginge on the sponsorship issue, think it is perfect opportunity to do something for charity.

Looking forward to it already!!

Matt :D

I might be interested if i knew a little more about the run.

whats the route exactly? how long, how much driving?

I'd love to come cause it sounds like such a cool run, but i will need to see what i'm doing closer to the time.

I think i can talk on behalf of the SCNM, last year we all sponsored MAX. Collection buckets arent a bad idea. but i think if u impose a minimum amount to join the run for a period of time you are going to get people not joining the run.

SPONSORSHIP
I would like to keep things as simple as possible on this matter!!
so i think we should keep things the same as RGB 2004.
The nominated charity being Whizz-Kidd's, mainly to try and involve BMW / MINI again in some way and i feel its a good charity to help.
There is No minimum amount that needs to be raised by anyone and YES if any MINI2 clubs join us for part of the run then a contribution no matter how big or small would be gratefully received

Exactly what I said. :)

OK, so I think we're all singing from the same hymn sheet here now. Once Mark receives the run info from Lawrence then I guess we can get that added to the first post.
