Event description

Description

January 2017, Dumball is heading to Northern India to drive a convoy of VERY VERY OLD Mahindra Jeeps from Jaipur to Goa to raise money for our good friends at Teenage Cancer Trust. Fancy dress is compulsary, and you only have half a day to decorate your jeep to match, so get thinking now! So far over the years you've helped us raise over £650,000 for teenagers who suffer from cancer and we're hoping that this year is going to be the biggest yet.

The Mahindra Jeep!

The 2017 Dumball takes places between Friday 13th January and Sunday 22nd January. You need to book your own flight to Delhi and then join us at the hotel from midday on Friday 13th January. We can help you arrange transfers if you require them. You will be on the Dumball until the morning of Sunday 22nd January when you will be free again. You need to arrange your own flight home or you could just decide to live there forever if you wish....

For now, we're just taking deposits of £150 with the full balance to be paid by the 30th of July 2016.

the details are as follows.....

THE ROUTE

FRIDAY 13TH JANUARY 20:00 - OPENING PARTY – DELHI
It all starts here!!! Dumballers from across the globe will meet to share stories, drink, eat and prepare for the adventures ahead.

SATURDAY 14TH 08.00 - JAIPUR
We’ll all be jumping on coaches to take us to Jaipur where we will be picking up our MAHINDRA JEEPS. You’ll have the afternoon to unleash all of your creative ambitions, decorating your Jeeps for the rally. Advice here is DREAM BIG!!!! take a look at some of the pics from last year to see just how much can be achieved in an afternoon if you know what you’re doing (or even if you really don’t as in many cases). After an afternoon’s hard graft we’ll be driving our jeeps back to the hotel to get some rest before we head out on the open road……

SUNDAY 15TH 09.00 DRIVE TO DESERT CAMP near MANVAR
Our first full day of driving the Jeeps and we’re treating you to a trip into the Rajasthani desert across some of the toughest roads on the rally. We’ll be heading for Osian Camel Camp where we’ll be sleeping in tents and making friends with the local camels.

MONDAY 16TH 09.00 DRIVE TO UDAIPUR
Heading out of the desert, we’re going to be travelling through the Aravalli hills to this stunning city. It’s tiny crooked streets and impressive palaces make it one of the most romantic cities in India we’re told, you can decide that for yourselves...

TUESDAY 17TH 09.00 DRIVE TO INDORE
We’re leaving Rajasthan and crossing over into Madhya Pradesh today. We’ll be signposting you to some stunning waterfalls you can visit on the way to the state’s largest city.

WEDNESDAY 18TH 09.00 DRIVE TO AURANGABAD
Plenty of opportunities for you to go exploring temples and Buddhist caves today as you travel through Maharashtra to the ‘City Of Gates’.

THURSDAY 19TH 12.00 DRIVE TO PUNE
The shortest day’s drive should give us plenty of time to take in some of the historic sites of Aurangabad before we head for the cultural capital of Maharashtra.

FRIDAY 20TH 09.00 DRIVE TO CALANGUTE BEACH, GOA
Our final drive and the longest day’s driving. Spend some quality time with your beloved Mahindras before you say a fond farewell to them. When you arrive in Calangute we’ll have to whisk away the jeeps so they can be stripped down to their original paintwork and handed back to their generous owners. Don’t panic though, you’ll soon be relaxing on the beach, outside the front of your very own beach hut.

SATURDAY 21ST 10.00 A day to do as you wish, relax on the beach and prepare yourselves for the night ahead……… 18.30 Beach Party BBQ, Dj, dancers, a big awards ceremony, and a free bar! Say goodbye to the Dumball in style.

SUNDAY 22ND - IT”S ALL OVER.
We’re no longer in charge, it’s up to you. Stay and relax in the sun, go home and impress everyone you know with your stories or maybe ditch your job and go explore further……
