As I have said it last night, I would agree to the suggestion made.. Mega Gathering on 11-12 November 2011 at A Famosa.

Convoy from KL (for those from KL) to A Famosa in the morning, then perhaps time attack in the afternoon then BBQ at night. Would be awesome!

Some suggested that we could have car boot sale as well which is a very good idea (not only by garages/shops but individuals also).

Car wash by bikini girls anyone? :biggrin:

Who is going to approach A'Famosa management? It would have to be done very soon as it would coincide with school holidays.

Yup we did. As the dates are tentatively agreed upon which is 12-13 November (Saturday & Sunday) MrNismo will be checking witht he A'Famosa management for those dates.

That weekend will be the weekend after Raya Haji.

Suggested itinerary would be:

Saturday
10am Arrival at A'Famosa & Event Registration
11am Time Attack Practice Session
1pm Lunch
2pm Timed Runs
8pm BBQ & Prize Giving

Sunday
10am Breakfast & Teh Tarik before adjourning home


This is of course open to discussion although a decision may need to be made after raya for the committee to proceed with organizing the event.

I hope MrNismo can come out with a figure on the expected costs for each participant. I suggest the rest of the committee be involved in the organising of the event; though anybody not in the committee who is interested to help is definitely welcomed.

Actually where does the time attack happen? What sort of course etc? Any details from past events like the one done my MLOC (or was it MEOC)?

IIRC, the MLOC event cost RM5k or so thereabouts and included 3 bungalows or something to that effect. Anyway, I take it MrNismo is close with the people at A'Famosa?

MLOC did their gymkhana event at A'Famosa... There's a parkin' space for tour bus located behind the rows of the bungalow.... The surface is kinda uneven....
How was it bro? Any pictures?

MrNismo knows them as he had handled the MLOC event as well as having had several drift events at A'Famosa over the years.

Will be tabling the costs soon. The bungalows are less than 1k per night each and can fit like 12 people (perhaps 20 if bunking bachelor style) and each has it's own swimming pool.

Actually I've been there and the bungalows are very cozy indeed.

And since the time attack event and the mega gath event would only be on Saturday, therefore the rent for car park space is half IIRC.

Mr Nismo knows his stuff and he did a great job organizing the MLOC Gymkhana Super Series.

Click HERE for the link to the event.

I don't have a Skyline but I'd be happy to provide press coverage for you guys :burnout:

Thanks but is a time attack event what all the members want?
a quick members' poll should resolve the matter on what type of event they want :wavey:

Well the reason for choosing A'Famosa is so that all the Skyline owners could bring their families along and still have family related events/activities available. I personally feel that if we were to focus purely on time attack type of events then KL Speedcity would suffice. The whole reason for choosing A'Famosa was the waterpark, etc.

In addition, last year's gathering was mainly a giant meet and greet in a parking lot so hopefully this year will see an improvement in organization and implementation as some members would have taken the trouble to drive from other States like Johor, Penang, etc.

Lets not forget our resident buayas (lets call them B & H), who will be able to make use of the waterpark facilities for their own nefarious underwater activities... :biggrin:
