PostZabeel Park Incident

Dear All,

As most of you probably know, there has been some incident at Zabeel Park where they asked us to all leave. I am not sure who would complain, but they said that there were people playing football and cricket there and this is one of the reasons. :evil: cry

I am going to go to the Public Parks Office this week and see if we can get it sorted out.

I will let you all know what happens.

In the meantime, if any of you have some suggestions about where else we can go, please give us some input.

Greg and I went to the Creek to see what was happening at the old track, and I can confirm that the entire thing has been bulldozed to the ground....there is nothing but a big sand patch there now. Very sad.

I will also check on the open lot at Al Wasl, I am not sure if it would be a nice drift area but will check it out anyway.

Regards
Andy

I agree 100% =D
Since sir Andy won't be able to attend this week, but has already done a lot for the group.
One of us should contact the Safa Hall office. Or whoever owns the shaded court.

Does anyone have the contact details?

I will help arrange it for you....I am trying to negotiate with him for better rates for indoors....I will ask him this evening what the B/ball court costs, but he is a simple man, so lets not crowd him with multiple requests.....but I reckon I can get it for nothing.

What time do you guys want? 16h30 until about 19h00?

Really!? That would be great news. Hehe
But you have a point sir. He might be confused if we send multiple requests.

Since it's now shaded, I think we can start a bit earlier. =)
How about until 8PM so that there will be ample time for late comers?

Yep, it is the one near Gulfnews HQ....

Zabeel Park Incident - Page 4 Pbucket

I imagine it is free, but I will confirm that....if they say YES once, then there is no way to kick us off very happy

The hall looks like this..

I was down there earlier and I can say that it is bad news for tourers and mini's, there is no grip. sad

BUT

although I had no drift tires it should be great for drifters.... smile

I was using normal mini tires, so it might be worth looking at different compounds for some grip, but I am not certain.

As soon as the manager confirms, I will let you know about the outside court...

The outdoor court looks good enough sir. =)
If it's free that would be another plus point. =D

But problem if it's free is that we can't actually reserve it.
So if we arrive while other people are having a game. It would be a problem. =/


I wouldn't mind drifting in the indoor court. hehe =D

who's quitting?

i just wanna shoot some hoops..
while sliding.. wahehe!

btt: the basketball court really is a great venue..

the hall, well maybe not as much for us drifters as we may scratch the surface and get banned from using the hall again.. our tires are not as soft and with our high-torqued motor, maybe it's not a suitable surface.. we'll have to check with the management before we run anything on it.

Well people...not good news. Spoke to the guy this afternoon and he says that the hall is booked EVERY Saturday afternoon until next year. Apparently some gym coaching goes on there....so rule that out for now.

The outdoor baskeball court is AED100 an hour as well!! I aksed if he was crazy, there is no AC but he insists that because it is covered, and the facilities are the same...the price is the same!! I dont know how these people arrive at this logic, really I dont...

So I would recommend that those parking areas behind the hall that I showed on the map, would be a good place to ride....there are no pay and display things and they are part of schools.....which are away at the moment...

This is really starting to Pi$$ me off that we cannot find a simple venue to do this.....we are not taking/selling/abusing drugs, we are not robbing/stealing/murdering so what the hell is the problem.

If you are all keen, I will try to meet you there on Saturday, but will probably only get down there after 5pm....

I am really sorry that I cannot do more at the moment, but I will keep trying until somebody arrests me.... :pale:

Good luck with the Abu Dhabi trip, sounds like you will all have a good time, and remember to take pics and post a report when you get back.

i think most of us are excited going to AUH tomorrow. meeting time is at 4:30am. waaa! :affraid: hopefully we get there early so there will be more sliding time with the AUH drifters.

about that covered court... if its 100, then we'll just have to go with the A/C... i know theres no logic to there lame excuse. and even they have good excuse, we still cant use it until next year.

so we'll just have to use the parking lot next to the school then until we find a suitable place to play our hobbies. scratch scratch

and andy... dont wait till you get arrested... hehehehe!

scratch :study: scratch

Easy sir andy. We'll find a way to solve this problem soon.
You've already done so much to help the team. And we thank you for that.

So i guess our meet will be at the school parking lot this coming saturday.


By the way. Did you ask if the gym was free on fridays?

Dhs100/hr for an outdoor court is completely insane. =/

Nothing is free in Dubai, especially on Friday laughing

Yeah, let's use the school parking lot. On the map you can see what looks to be a a whole bunch of blue busses....they have not been there everytime I have been past the place....and in front of the hall there is a parking lot almost identical to where we play at Zabeel.
The school one is better though...there are a lot of tall trees on one side, and they will provide PLENTY of shade in the afternoons...they can shove their AED100 per hour. bounce

Got that right. Hehe

Most of the drifters had a busy day today, after the AUH meet, I'm not sure if all of them will be able to make it tomorrow.
But I'll be there for sure. Hehe. =)

A small change of plans.

Sir Martin has suggested that we try the parking area in Deira. Behind Toys 'r us and Marks & Spencers.

To all who can make it, please pass by.
You can contact me on 050-9559067
or Sir Martin on 050-1758640.

Thank you. Hope to see you all later. =)

Ey DK eathan.
I couldn't contact you on your number.
A lot more people will be able to attend if we have the drift meet in Deira.

@Sir Andy.
Very sorry for the change of plans. Since you may not be available today, I'll just a look at sir Martin's suggestion.
Then next week we'll give the Safa area a try. =)

one thing i would like to warn everyone about:

This is in jumeirah on al wasl road, i notice sometimes that belhasa driving center uses that area as a training space, ontop of that, there are some people that play cricket in that space on certain days, so to avoid any conflict, allow me to surveil that area for a week especially on saturdays and i will post up and all clear if were ok to run out there, i would also gladly join u guys as its much closer to me (2 min drive or 10 min walk) hahahahah

As far as the area goes and to my knowledge from living in that area:

It is a free area so no worries about parking meters
Its around 300 - 400 meters from spinneys markey
It is accessible from al wasl road and from behind
It is a wide open area so there is some breeze from the seaside
Bathrooms may be an issue since the nearest gas station is a kilometer away
It will be seen by other people as it is alongside al wasl road which is busy 24/7, there will be exposure

As a bonus, i beleive there is a large sand patch with some mini jumps for those of you with electric rally and electric off-road kits very happy very happy very happy laughing 2thumbsup
