Cheapfest 2014, the 10th anniversary
« on: January 21, 2014, 09:34:41 PM »


2014 is a big year for our club as it marks the 10th anniversary of CHEAPFEST - BirtyDastards annual club event – which as usual will be held at the off road site of Coney Green Farm nr Stourport on Severn over the weekend of 13th & 14th September, although camping will be available from the 12th.

Just briefly for those of you that don’t know back in the day there was a national event called JeepFest in the UK that was hideously expensive, so when JeepFest  folded the original team at BirtyDastards Jeep Club set up their own annual event for it members and called it Cheapfest.

Coupled with the 10th anniversary of Cheapfest is we hope a change of direction for the future of the Jeep community in the UK where we can fortify and rebuild strong links with clubs that in essence share the same passion – JEEPS. Subsequently, we have officially invited via their forums all the other Jeep clubs in the UK to attend and have provided them with discount codes for pre-booking tickets for the weekend. We really hope that we can make this a huge event and help get the ball rolling for the clubs to work together and share events in the future.

So, along with those ambitions and the 10th anniversary came a need to expand the programme for Cheapfest: as well as the usual weekend off road free roaming fun at Coney Green Farm – which is suitable for stock Jeeps as well as hardcore trail rigs – there will also be gated trials, punch hunts, and guided tours for standard Jeeps.

Outside of the driving opportunities we are planning outside catering over the weekend, music in the evening, fireworks, and a free to enter show & shine event. We also have commitments from off road related businesses such as Llama4x4 & Jeep Monkey that are enthusiastic to come along with their trade stands.

The event will also be covered by Total Off Road (TOR) magazine.

There are many different options on tickets and all are welcome whether driving off road and camping for the weekend or coming for a day visit as a spectator and meet some old and new friends. Obviously it’s cheaper to pre-book but entry on the day/s at the gate will be available.

Please see all the details here: http://cheapfest.co.uk

Discount codes for Birtys are:

CF14BDJCwend for Weekend entry with Off Roading
CF14BDJCsun for Sunday entry with Off Roading
CF14BDJCsat for Saturday entry with Off Roading

Regular information and updates on the event can be found via:

BirtyDastards Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/birtydastardsjeepclub

BirtyDastards Twitter: https://twitter.com/BD_JeepClub

Please share the event details on Facebook with any of your off road Jeeping mates.

Please note: the event will be fully marshalled and run by volunteers – it is a not for profit event and any surplus after costs, hire of toilets etc, and administration etc will be donated to our nominated charity.

Birtys is getting some attention from the Yanks on twitter now, might be worth prodding Bushwacker on there to see if there'd be any chance of some freebees. (They fav'd the Cheapfest tweet) so could be worth a prod with a pointy stick.  :icon_winkle:

Mmmm...freebies  :icon_twisted:

Might be good for a charity raffle / auction - raising money for a dedicated cause and people get some new parts for their Jeeps would be good and would provide some entertainment.

In return (apart from raising money for charity) we could put promotional material into the trade stand area.

I will be there.
Now do I buy or rent  a trailer and bring the TJ towed by the ZJ  :017: or do I drive the TJ down and suffer from boneshakers syndrome for 2 days  :017:
Looking forward to it already and even more so if the beers are cold. As soon as my hols are confirmed I will book .

£100ish for a trailer to hire for the weekend,

I bet you would use a lot of fuel in the TJ to get down.

So tow off ZJ and if you break anything all you have to do is get it back on the trailer.

we will be needing a lot of volunteers this year for everything from marshalling to litter duty, to be done on a shift rota basis, anyone who may be able to help can you PM Bulldog with your forum name and real name, and nearer the time we will start formulating a rota that suits everyone.

to become a Lord you need to refuse to camp, only drink tea from fine china while on site and clean off any mud that gets on your Jeep within 20 mins

Drink your fine vintage red from your own cellar in the finest crystal
Sport appropriate head wear - A fine trilby comes to mind.
Be super polite and unassuming but deliver the goods on the off road track.
