4:3tv MEET RULES - APPLICABLE TO ALL 4:3tv MEETS
If you register to attend a 4:3tv meet it will be assumed that you have read and agree to these rules. They are here to address past issues on the meets and they ensure we can all enjoy the day. If you have any questions about the rules then feel free to either post below or send a PM to a staff member.
PLEASE INFORM US IMMEDIATELY IF YOU ARE REGISTERED BUT CAN NO LONGER ATTEND.
THIS IS VITAL TO THE PLANNING TO ENSURE WE HAVE AVAILABLE SEATS IN CARS AND TO ARRANGE THE MEAL.
FAILURE TO INFORM US WILL RESULT IN YOU BEING DISQUALIFIED FROM ATTENDING FUTURE MEETS.
A register will be compiled of attendees, drivers, back up drivers and those who are having a meal.
please include this information in your post when registering.
Registering for others is not allowed. Posting on the thread is the only way to register for the meet.
We regret that we can no longer accommodate non member guests on the meets.
This is due to the popularity of these meets which usually reach maximum numbers of forum members.
In the event that we don't achieve a full register then staff will announce that guests will be permitted.
They will then be added to the register alongside the forum member.
New members will be asked to provide a mobile telephone number in advance of their first meet.
Drivers will be contacted by Del Boy nearer the time of the meet to discuss seating arrangements for squad members.
This will ensure everyone knows what they are doing on the day and so that no driver ends up with any more
punters in their car than is desirable, and that no passenger gets left behind.
It is essential that once arranged, the numbers allocated to each car must be adhered to.
Our drivers have reported that they do not want any last minute changes and more specifically, any additions.
For contingency purposes we always like to have a couple of back up drivers for the day.
On a few occasions they have been needed.
Please let us know when you register if you can fulfil this role.
Passengers please note that the allocation of available seats agreed with our drivers will be allocated
on a first to register basis.
Please remember that the cost of fuel is high and there may be other expenses such as parking.
It is expected of PASSENGERS to offer their driver a fair contribution towards these costs (minimum £5).
It is preferable that this be arranged with your driver BEFORE the meet commences during the Meet and Greet.
We advise all drivers that if they receive no such offer from a member that they should inform any of the 4:3tv
staff as soon as possible.
Remember our drivers are an essential part of the meets. We should all be grateful to them.
Its important to note that NO PRINTED MAPS AND DIRECTIONS WILL BE GIVEN OUT.
When the itinerary is produced it will include all the of the postcodes and street names needed for the meet to use
with sat-nav /mobile phone navigation.
It is vitally important that at least two persons per car program the postcodes into their sat -nav/phones BEFORE
This will ensure there will be no issues for our drivers to be able to get to the locations.
The reasons why we ask everyone to dine at a set time needs clarifying after confusion at previous meets.
The numbers attending the evening meal are communicated by us to the venue before we attend on the day.
They ask us to do this so they can reserve seating for us and so they can arrange to have enough staff to serve
our large group of people dining at the same time.
If you no longer wish to dine with us please let us know at the earliest opportunity so we can advise the venue.
People who wish to order their meal before the main group can do so if they prefer or need to.
If you do wish to eat earlier then we kindly ask you to make use of the non reserved side of the venue to do this.
Those who are dining together will get priority on the allocated tables to eat their meal at the set time.
We hope you all have a good time at future 4:3tv meets
Gene, Sam, Del & The Saint.
