Guess it's that age thing again so I assume that 43 years ago gives me entitlement

May I gently nudge this back on topic - we have £30.00 pledged for magnetic signs for hired (or any other vehicle) out and about on Vulcan business if someone cares to pursue. I'm sure suitable artwork is already available and just needs minor adjustments to suit the requirements of the sign printers. Seems to me to be a simple and very cost effective idea that can be implemented quickly as a forum project with only a little effort and a few more small donations :) .

Forget the age thing for a moment. :roll:

I can get magnetic car door  boards 450 x 295 (18" x 12" approx) at £ 22 for 4 number plus a one of charge for setup and upload of £ 3.50. If we wanted 8 then the price is £ 44 i know they are a little smaller that those mentioned by RHP but we could change the message on differing sets

Has anyone thought to ask the Trust ??
Just wondering whether their vans are "proper" signwritten - painted on , or vinyl stickers - or do they use the magnetic ones , or did they use them on the old Subarus they used to have ??

RE; Greggs post >>>>>>> Spot on - do we need  approval to get a sample made up so we can show the powers ? I would foot bill for initial pair and upload cost if required

I was thinking more along the lines of : "If the Trust use / have used the magnetic signs , do they have any spare ones lying around that the Club can blag" !!  ;)  :mrgreen:

Yes we do need permission to use logos etc and Ian has looked into this.  They were planned for this year but like many things didn't happen due to time etc. For anything like this Scamptn has all the logos etc and will draft items.

It is on agenda for committee winter planning session along with van/trailer etc to make sure we hit ground running next season (and winter events we are looking into). I can ask Ian for his quotes though I am sure he will be along soon with details you need.

Hope that helps

Sarah

Car licences held before 1 January 1997

All drivers who passed a car test before 1 January 1997 retain their existing entitlement to tow trailers until their licence expires. This means they are generally entitled to drive a vehicle and trailer combination up to 8.25 tonnes MAM. They also have entitlement to drive a minibus with a trailer over 750kgs MAM.

Drivers who hold subcategory C1+E - limited to 8.25 tonnes MAM, may apply for provisional entitlement to the new subcategory C1+E, in order to take and pass the test which will increase their combined vehicle and trailer entitlement to 12 tonnes MAM. It is not necessary to gain subcategory C1 entitlement first but drivers have to meet higher medical standards, and pass both the category C theory test and the subcategory C1+E practical test.


I hope that when Gregg refered to stock he was not talking about upto 12 tonnes - even a VV with that would require a lot of people through the door. Put anyway it was good data and useful to know

I can tow anything up to 3,500kg but I'm in the North so no real demand .....


more seriously happy to wander about country towing stuff if really desperate - Toyota Landcruiser & rather old driving licence :-)
