A full pint would be good.

I'd consider a flat cap as long as it was obviously a RBRR item.

Maybe 'Round Britain Reliability Run 1966 - 2016' sun strips for the cars? Maybe little plaques for the cars too etc?

RBRR Beer? 'Petrol, mineral and tears' or something. I'm sure a catchy name could be thought of. I'd suggest maybe some of the Coventry breweries should get a go at it being as the cars are from Coventry originally... https://www.byattsbrewery.co.uk/

Please can we have decent embroidered merchandise this time even if it costs a bit more.

Quilted body warmer which are nicer to drive in than full jackets.

Flat cap's a grand idea, don't bother with those bl**dy baseball caps that everyone wears.

I like the sunstrip idea - the CLUB TRIUMPH one could be made a little more specific for the 2016 RBRR.

A necktie would be good as well, with reference to the 2016 RBRR

Will entrants get first dibs on this stuff? Same with the RBRR book too - I'd love to have one to add to my collection when they're published and would hate to miss out. Maybe include a list of teams from the first RBRR and the 50th anniversary of it too, even if it's just a list of names, the car they use and their location? That way the book will be personal to all the people that take part.

I liked the 2012 T shirt with the motorway destination/ mileage  sign on the back, perhaps do a 60's style sign.
could they put a list of all the cars, model, reg ,colour etc that have done the RBRR  in the book, it would be interesting to know how many still survive.

Quoted from Wilfrid

What about a sunstrip type thing 18" wide and 2 - 3 inches deep, and use blue with yellow letters?  
Can be used on the front usefully covering the gap between the visors, or on the back window bottom or top.

I like to show my allegiance to CT but find the present ones a bit much - reminiscent of the 'Kevin and Sharon' things that were popular in the 1980s and I hated .......

"He still felt perfectly fresh and the elation and clarity of mind produced by the Benzedrine were still with him" - sounds ideal for RBRR!

There was a board game called 'Race Around Britain' - if anyone can find a set it would be a good basis for it. Had questions and trivia about the places. Would be very good. Might sell well outside of the club if made to be 'accessible'.

If there is RBRR commemorative clothing etc for crews could  that be made available to marshals too please.

Yes I am being selfish here but Phil Charlton did a great job at Carter Bar last time by all accounts  so it would be good if us marshals got a chance too

Yes Steve, that's the one - was a half decent game. Although, that was in the early 90's when I was about 6 or 7... But as a principle of how the game could work, I think it could be a good basis for RBRR.

Not sure how much it would cost to get a custom board game made up for around 100 sets or so... a lot would be my guess.

I wonder if there would be much interest in RBRR top trumps card game, might not be as expensive to produce.

Watching Grandson playing with daughter this afternoon I may have come up with something of a game - but then I may not.  You have to be careful not to encroach on other games copyright.

Involves planning, luck, having a laff, helping others ....... and doing the sh*t on people to beat them!  All around the RBRR concept apart from the bit about doing the sh* on people

How about arranging for there to be professional photographers at some of the venues to take good photos of the cars as the arrive and maybe at some of them, the teams mingling around etc. £5 for a framed photo embossed with something like 'Club Triumph Round Britain Reliability Run 2016' and the club laurels on the frame?

That's what I was thinking.

It'd be easy enough to get a photographer to the start, and possibly end of the event, maybe Stirling too? Land End... you may get one from Penzance, but I think JOG would be hard to find someone willing to go there.

I did mean that the proceeds would go to the charity.

Photographer is a good idea although in my experience they charge entrants directly for photos ..and there not cheap !   http://www.devilgas.com/

When I was doing events this guy covered a lot of the HRCR stuff ..don't know what the crack is now mind but will bring it up at next RBRR meeting..

I'd happily pay a bit for a good 'action' photo on the event, even if it's just leaving the start line. Then the photographer could be set up at the end at Knebworth for the crews to look at the photos and choose to buy one. Then like a lot of these things, the crews could choose individual photos, or a CD of them all etc.

Magic photos .com do quite a lot of Triumph events as it's run by Triumph people... Had some nice action shots of my GT6 from them at a couple of the Prescott Triumph Marque Days, they were selling CDs of photo sets for each car pretty cheaply.

I reckon you could do a deal with them, where a % of the proceeds go to the charity.

Better than a red nose now that Christmas is over .......  

Someone taking photos at JOG or LE would be good - or waiting there to take photos of people with their own cameras (for a small fee for the charity).  We were lucky last time to find the odd member of Joe Public who kindly took photos using our camera - one an American lady at JOG who was astonished that we were having breakfast the next day at LE !

Now that's a another good one to include for the start.  

At our Wydean meeting on Tuesday we were thinking of lots of incidents that have happened, to give penalty or bonus moves on the board and came up with a lot but want lots more ....... so please send any to ted.taylor@bigfoot.com  Doesn't matter if they are duplicates.

We have knocked together the basis of the game.

"Throttle cable snaps approaching Corbridge. Miss a turn while you lash something up, then another when you get to a dealer."

When this happened, to a fellow TR7 Sprint owner in 1996, the second control was still at a Rover dealer in Corbridge and he was able to buy a throttle cable of sorts to do a better fix. Meanwhile, I succumbed to...

"You decide to check the alternator bolts and manage to snap off the rear lug. Subtract one from your next two dice rolls."

Quoted from thescrapman
Owner of the car is fast asleep on the back seat, move twice the normal number of squares until he wakes up.



Reminds me of my silly and I forgot when doing our first list of incidents for the 'game'  

'Co-driver catching up on sleep as approaching control and woke him late to look out for it.  Overshot and have to go to end of very long dual carraigeway to get back to it.'

Keep 'em, coming!

Co-driver stops because he's too tired, wakes you up, but doesn't inform you that there's a control approaching. SatNav doesn't either, and co-driver is fast asleep as you drive straight past and most of the way to the next one. No, we didn't turn round, we just explained to the marshals at Land's End that we were still in the run, we'd just had a communication problem about the extra stop that wasn't there the previous time I'd done the run.

That gives me an idea for a penalty - return to the previous control because you did not sign in .......... ouch!

Must think of some nice ones!

Quoted from Jonny-Jimbo
Although, that was in the early 90's when I was about 6 or 7....


I feel old now you young man!  

I like the idea of photos, another thought, if you approach photographic schools. The students are more than willing to help, it's good for their portfolio especially as it's for charity, and they do a great job, and probably would only ask for food and drinks to keep them going.
Perhaps it may mean that they would need ferrying to certain points.


Cheers

Without knowing the route yet they could just go to the Start at the Plough, then one of the Stops in Oxfordshire and then at the Finish too, where they could sell the photos?

I'm can't see why action shots on some of the B roads can't be put on a website as a specimen then we can order the high resolution download. Could make a few bob for both photographer and club.

I was just thinking that getting a photographer out into the sticks could be difficult, and getting all the cars as they come through, plus teams would then have to pay for postage on them - not a deal breaker, but I guess some people may think twice about it in that scenario.

It'd be good to have photos as people go through the B-Roads though.

Yeah, but then you wouldn't have it nicely printed in an embossed frame etc, which was part of the original idea... I don't really want to pay for a download...
