Those who need a ride and who can share a ride, please send your details (the type of car and how many you can accommodate) – we can arrange these at least a week before the event. As a courtesy, those who need a ride will share the petrol expense with your driver, unless you have an arrangement. A WhatsApp group will be created a week before the event, to ensure that we have everything that we need.
