To ensure the club always has enough volunteers to drive the club Ford Transit 12-seater minivans when heading away each weekend we are going to hold a Minivan Famil session on the morning of either Saturday 21st or Sunday 22nd April, depending on peoples preference.
The famil, open to members and non-members who are looking to join the club, is ideal for those who wish to help out in some way but may lack the experience or confidence to drive a larger, manual transmission vehicle.
It is an opportunity for people to practise driving the vans in a quieter, slower and more comfortable environment than that of a Friday night departure with a noisy van full of trampers and packs.
The session will depart from the train station and last about 3 hours depending on numbers.
The session will be led by Steve Austin who will run through:
- the features of the van
- what to do in case of a flat tyre or other mechanical problem
- where the vans are stored and
- how to pay for diesel
and everyone attending the session will be given the opportunity to drive the van.
