I agree fully with Engel & Gympee.
I actually wrote to Anel of RFAD a few weeks ago & spoke to her on Saturday.
I explained that 3 months is too short & that the 2018 RFAD 4x4 Fun Day Committee should meet within 3 weeks of this year's event.
I explained that the CMA (Comrades Marathon Association) has a committee working on the Marathon 2 year's hence.
She was extremely reluctant to plan ahead, but eventually agreed (probably just to get me off her case) that at least getting sponsorships could start sooner.
I would STRONGLY suggest a Committee is set up & meets in mid April to start the 2018 process.

I have been busy and have a main sponsor. Its a bit early but have to start looking now. Its a great way to get rid of tax money. So we have to start driving it as soon as we can, getting the sponsors on board. I would like some public participation as well as much as we can.
Turnkey Construction Projects, Commercial, industrial, Domestic
Importers: Diving gear, Compressed air cylinders for diving and airgun industry, 4x4 equipment.
Manufacturers: Pofadder Kinetic ropes, Recovery kits, Synthetic winch ropes
Vehicles: Modifications and installations, Special application vehicles
Driver training: 4x4, Defensive
Gents and Ladies
Thank you for all the suggestions, and I saw it and went to the kitchen to assist in getting the queue shorter but the guys were working as fast as they could as they have small grills and friers. So this will be rectified and I will extend the comments to Adam to ensure it is rectified for the next one.
My thought was to give a lunch break as it helped Adam and do think the field of competitors did enjoy it as well and appreciated the break.
Manny as explained I started working on this one last year already and invited a few others and I was alone. The first meeting was 28 April 2016.
I can only do as much as I can as I do have a job as well, family and other extensions of interest.
I am challenging any person on this forum that have the ability to assist with funds as the personnel at Reach for a Dream is stretched as well to assist with raising funds, and getting sponsors as well. This will help the cause tremendously.
With the team I have now it will be of the essence to locate a new premises for a new challenge so any ideas will help as well.
Be in contact with me if you can make a difference dmaritzatgmaildotcom or on zero eight two seven 6 double 5 nine double 4.
