PROJECT 98' The Roof of Africa Open Day

On the 10th January 1998 the Princes Quay shopping centre in Hull, Yorkshire, England, will host Project 98' The Roof of Africa open day.

This event will give commercial companies, the general public, schools and all other interested parties the opportunity to meet Jon Amos and the team and view the expeditions equipment which includes the specially designed wheelchair and tracker unit made for us by CJS Cyclone Wheelchairs. On show will also be the latest hydration units by Camelback along with some of the most high tech camera, computer and satellite communication equipment, that we intend to use during our record attempt on Mt. Killamanjaro, the highest free standing mountain in the world.

It is hoped that throughout the day, a live Internet link can be maintained to demonstrate to the public how to access the expeditions web pages which are supported by Bluedome and Hull University, and which will allow individuals to follow the progress of the ascent on a day to day basis.
