    Quick ques.. I bought a pair of hi-freq walkie talkie last time. I decide to buy hi-freq since I saw that club usually use hi-freq for most of the event as primary transmission. But comes to the day of event, the freq always clocked down to low-freq due to certain reasons. I'm believe that not only me who having this conflict, and northern gang also had the same problem on the last pangkor drives. I'm not intend to buy new set of walkie-talkie for the time being. Really appreciate if comms member can come out with solution since the communication between participants are essential in this long drive. Thanks...

    Thanks for your feedback bro...I believe the above stated frequency will be used throughout the drive. If indeed there is a need for a change, the committee will inform before hand and explain the reason(s) for the change.

    Thanks bro.. Hopefully we'll able to stick to the primary freq :top:
    Another humble suggestion, instead of the participants leave the resort on 6th by themselves, why not we make up small group for convoy driving back to KL?? Hence we can still feel the drives spirit before reach home. This is one of the best method to get rid of drive-fatigues perhaps :4:

    Yea was about to ask the same thing as well..but I believe that figure is after the subsidy because if I'm not mistaken last time Mr Prez did mention that the cost would be around 70++ per pax..so 70 over bucks for me :(

    On the other hand bro mac, the stated accomodation cost for 2 nights is per room right? Meaning for those who are sharing the room the cost shall be divided as per am I right?

    :top:... Great job Mac ...
    ...
    as discussed and agreed included in the high tea, is a small "birthday" event together with the orphanage at Ri-Yaz. Handing over of the goodies(courtesy of the birthday parents) and donation collected (from the ECB) will also be done during the high-tea. Maybe you can edit your posting to include the hi-tea event ... :top:"
