I think there will need to be some rules set down - some of you may reconise these rules from other forums/cruises, and i think these rules make a good SAFE cruise.

Quote:
Rules (PLEASE FOLLOW THESE)

We will have a certain number of cars with UHF CB Radios. Before we depart from the Hypermarket carpark, cars will be split up into smaller groups led by a car with a CB Radio. This is for your own safety... Please Bring a CB Radio (handheld/in-car) if you have one. I am hoping that each "mini convoy" will have a leader with a CB radio and 3 to 6 cars in total.

Hoons and idiots are not welcome on this cruise. Any disturbances and you will be asked to leave. Speeding / Dangerous driving and OVERTAKING will not be tolerated. The rules sound harsh but it is for the safety of the convoy. Please act sensibly, it is NOT a street race.

RULES FOR THIS RUN - COURTESY OF A CAR CLUB

quote:"CAR CLUB OF QUEENSLAND
RULES FOR SOCIAL DRIVES IN CONVOY

Preliminary

1. Car Clubs in Australia are bound to promote and adhere to safe driving on public roads.

2. On any social drive, there will be varying degrees of driver competence and it is imperative that no driver should ever feel threatened by the speed of the convoy. The leader must adjust convoy speeds accordingly.

3. Social drives are not an excuse for a road race and there should be time to observe the scenery. Attendees who would like to drive at higher speeds always have the opportunity to drive the route themselves at a later date.

4. It has been proven that, if these rules are not adhered to, some members will not continue to attend club activities and some potential members will not join the club.

5. The convoy leader should ensure that each car has a copy of the run route or instructions for the drive.

General Rules of Convoy Driving

1. Keep the car behind you in sight at all times. If this basic rule is followed, nobody should get lost and the speed of the convoy will be self-regulated.

2. Keep a 2 - 3 second safety margin between all cars - a multiple pile-up of cars is not a pretty sight. As a general rule-of-thumb, no overtaking should occur in convoy driving.

3. Indicate intentions early - ie. At least 30 metres before changing lane or direction.

4. If driving along suburban roads, it is likely that cars towards the end of the convoy will get 'left behind' at traffic signals. It is important that lead cars reduce speed or pull over to reform the convoy at the first 'safe' area after the lights in question. If this does not happen, drivers may break traffic rules in order to catch up with the main group. This is not acceptable.

5. When two or more traffic lanes are available at traffic lights, cars should use all lanes to get through the lights and then reform into original convoy order.

6. If the convoy holds up the general public, drivers should pull over and allow the public to pass safely. Under no circumstances should the general public be intimidated by our driving.
Opinions ? Suggestions ?

Should i make a new topic under cruises with these rules in it as sticky ?

Hey man, all that sounds good... agree with everything... silly lane changing and lack of indication reall give me the ****s... not to mention speeding on cruises :roll: i dunno, the youth of today
anyway don't bother with the sticky thread though... don't think it's that serious hey, that thing looks like it came from an oldskool MG forum or something
good stuff though... cool, oh and i dunno about the whole making groups thing before we leave either... couldn't be bothered... but yeh we'll try and make sure that cars without walky's are between cars that do so they don't fall behind/get ahead...Aii !!
cut sik !
l8r !

Great idea to have the rules, i won't have a CB because quite frankly i couldn't be bothered.

I have a perfectly good nokia mobile and handsfree kit so if i get lost i'll call someone, or go home.

The other thing i want to make aware to people is that we do all seem to pull away from each other, like the willow cruise where people were going a little fast out to Willowbank.

I mean i have no issues with it, and do it myself sometimes but when you do have 1 point left, its more fun just driving than constantly looking between the speedo and the side of the road for speed cameras.

yes, the main point for the cruise is to CRUISE (not race)... and it would be good if we could loose no-one on this cruise...

sure have a spurt, but try not to loose the car behind you !!!

you will all be given maps anyway detailing the route we're taking - so shouldnt be too hard for seperated groups to find the rest of the convoy...

Speaking of the Maps, the main image is all cut up and ready to roll for print,

Do we know any exact numbers.

I'm going to run 20 sets off in the hope that there will be enough.

It'll be strictly 1 per car and i'll be charging $1.00 each because they've been a mess to make so far. And the accounts people here caught me running excessive personal printouts.

Anyway they'll be there on the day $1 each, instructions and rule sheet with it. Plus an order form for the DVD.

Ok, well id like to thank Simo (ZED310), Mark (InsaneVL), as well as Rob (my88vl) for all chippin in a bit of time and effort to help organise this mofo of a cruise.

Like people stated before.. use common sence and we'll all be good. Drive safely and no one will have any problems.

For those of you comin, tomorrow will probably be another hot bitch of a day so bring plenty of water and food and yeah.. sick !

I did plan on having 10 -12 calaisturbo stickers up for sale, however a slight delay in postage means i wont have them by tomorrow.. sooo.. if anyone lets me know that they want one.. i'm sure i can send it to ya after the cruise ok.

Cheers ppl - have a lovely sleep.
