Could somebody please post a list of recommended accommodation close to the track?

Also, when are St Ives regular club meetings between now and the Nationals?

Jarred,

Yes. The Clubs voted to lift the 6000MAH Maximum last year.
This will come into effect in 2012.

Thanks Darryn.

I'm just thinking ahead here a bit. Is the track typically open for practice on the Saturdays before Club meetings?

There's a "Where to stay" link in the 'about' section of the St Ives Website here.
There's a couple of suggestions near the track and there are camping facilities within the Showgrounds.

Can we get a powered tent site? Say, just use the camper powered site?

In addition, the club web site lists a meeting on the 5th feb, baring weather intervening is this scheduled to go ahead?

Also does the club have chairs and tables for visitors to use on a saturday and sunday?
