Entry fees will be charged and a minimum sponsorship of £5.00 will be due from each participant. Refreshments will be available all day, kindly provided by the 'Bunch of Grapes', and a raffle will run all day.

As part of their sponsorship, Icom (UK) Ltd will be supplying each Marshall with a handheld radio to help co-ordinate the event.
