Camelman AKA Rambo doing The Namaqua Rallye. Sponsors needed
« on: January 16, 2014, 10:08:59 am »
Hello guys and girls.

I had a quick chat with Alex about this year's Amageza. Wow, its going to be even more epic! It seems he has been hard at work already, and has sorted out all of last year's niggles.

His rubber arm got twisted to ride the namaqua, and take some time to enjoy a bit of his own rally riding.

OK, to te point of this post. This man has done more for multi stage multi bivouac rallyes in Africa than anybody else. (worldwide only the Dakar also moves house every night. Makes you think.) So it would just be the nice thing to do to get some cash together to sponsor his entry and some fuel for practice.

Unfortunately I will be off to DRC on Monday again, so I need somebody to collect the cash and hand it over to him. Any volunteers?

We had about 50 people involved with last year's Amageza, so we need about R300 each to get him to 15k.

PS. Sorry for doing this Alex, but I know you won't ask. :deal:

Count me in to contribute to help him if it goes thru. PM me the detrails, this guy had a vision and now almost every one on Dogs has a passion for his Amageza.

I forfeited balance of my oustanding 2013 entry fee for that purpose, and I am IN again for this Pleco, so call me.

I been in contact with Pleco and the SE Club acc is now the one to use - I am not hijacking this effort at all but I think that if the bank account details are posted here for all to see then there is a greater and swifter chance that WDs will donate quickly and freely

I will gladly post the bank statement here in pdf format for all to see - complete transparency

I think Alex is a great oke and would like to do my little bit to help him - he gives so much to others and expects nothing back

Once upon a time I failed to qualify for the Amageza - completely due to lack of preparation and talent on my part - that was probably a good thing because I think I would have hurt myself badly on the actual event. In some way I would still like to be involved in the Amageza.

Please go ahead and use the KTM SE Club account and I promise the money will get to Alex

I would really like to donate something towards Camelman. But it seems that there is now 2 bank accounts where the donations can go into, can you guys please sort this out so that we can start contributing to get Camelman to the Namaqua?

I really hope the lack of response is due to January being a looong month till pay day.

I don't think people realise how much of his personal money Alex has invested in the Amageza besides the massive amount of  time and effort to organise the event. Than he can not compete in the event.

Come on people show your support.

I am waiting for payday also.  :peepwall:

But will definitely be adding a few pennies.

I will ask Rambo for the names of people that sponsored and update as we go along.
