Cold Turkey Hunt – 28th December

Time to get out into the fresh air and get the 4×4 engine warm for a Christmas treat and have fun and meet up with your fellow club members.

*** NEW SITE *** NEW SITE *** NEW SITE *** NEW SITE *** 

This year, we have access to a new site, which is part of an old shale dump. Whilst there are plans afoot for developing the site, there is plenty to do throughout the day.

As this is a new site, every driver and passenger MUST attend the drivers briefing after signing in. 

Open to all 4x4s of all levels of experience, whether road vehicles or off-road prepd.

Traditionally this event was friends meeting up for a drive, however over the last 5 years, we have added in various twists, and this year is no exception!

We will have a standard punch hunt setup to keep you amused, with. In essence, this means that we will attach a card to a wing mirror of your choice, and then your challenge is to find as many of the punches as we have put out.

As well as this, you will be given a card to make a note of how many turkeys you find along the way!

Cost: TBC per vehicle plus £5 per additional driver

Time: 09.30-10.00 signing on and scrutineering, ready to start at 10.30

Lunch: Bring your own packed lunch and warm drink

Finish: We generally finish mid-afternoon depending on weather and light conditions.

Directions: Postcode is ML7 5TQ.  Exit the M8 at J5 and take the B7057 (Shotts Rd). Follow this towards Shotts for approx. 1/2 mile. The site entrance is on the right hand side, slightly back from the roadside.

Amateur Radio: For those who have it, we usually use 145.350MHz if it’s free.

Event Registration: To let us know you’re attending, please fill in the quick event registration form at: Registration

We recommend warm clothing, waterproofs, and if you have recovery or towing gear, that would probably be sensible given the time of year.
