I am for any drive in middle of the week, not only night drives, cause actually there is lot to do during the weekend, sometimes even go to work ;)

Are there any other Almosters who would like to have a week day drives? And most importantly, are Marshalls free to organize something like that? I am sure that this would be very small convoys.

Mohamed Al Shamsi:

So far our Marshals are weekenders

We have a rule among marshals that they go in pairs the reason behind that if the leader fall down for any reason the other will take over.

Another scenario is if a marshal goes alone that is because there are other marshals doing another level in same area, if he/she needs help one of those marshals will fly to help

Our members safety is our priority. Of course if a holiday falls in the midweek we are all OUT 😎

...and this can be felt on every drive. It is always very relaxing, enjoyable, safe and it always finishes at almost exact scheduled time. Which is not always the case, by my experience, on some “other” drives. ;)

Unfortunately I would be highly doubtful for attending midweek daytime drives due to work commitments.

I would however be able to attend midweek night drives.

For night drives you need intermediates/Advance drivers which is going to be a smaller group having in mind that they have work the next day. In my experience not all night drives endup as planned especially when you have strong drivers. Additionally, marshals will always try to save energy to perform for 52 weeks a year and make sure they are available when members are on holidays

I would be in for midweek night drives as well, day drives might be possible depending on my workload.
BR, Johanna

If it excites you and scares you at the same time, it probably means you should do it.

I support mid week drive either day or night since weekends are sometimes busy with the family or even at work.

I like the idea of midweek drives, as i work on shifts and often won't get the fridays off. Most of the times my off days fall during the week days.

But, yea it all depends upon the availability of Marshalls...
