Raid 2003

I would like to start off by asking how many would like to attend this years events if there were one.

And for those that were there last year and the year before what things/ideas/places would you like to do again this year.

We are open for suggestions and are in the initial lets see the response part of the planning.

If this is something you would like to see this year then please speak up. Vote Yes or no above. ANY information or ideas put them in this thread.

Already thought of...

Karting
Calder?
Organized Cruise to say...12 apostles with lunch in one town on the way?
Family BBQ day for the entire family ie kids and wives or kids and husbands for you females Ford Fanatics
Organized tours of Ford Plants and/or discovery Centre
Sit down meetings with drivers or even race teams

These are just some of the ideas I have in my head. Let us know what you think would be good.

Of course this is staying in the Donating members section for the time being. Would like to get a feel if this is a possibility or not.

FPV tours?

Just rattling them off in my head.

I'll go for that Gary!

Someone mentioned kareoke last time - god forbid... Calder would be great, do supercar teams hold practice sessions anywhere in Melbourne at that time of year? If the Raid could tie in with another motoring event like the FPV day conveniently did with the Motorshow, that would be great too... Also see if we can be taken in the test cars at the FPG.

*Keeps dreaming

We could also raise some money for the forums by making Chucky and Sparkles do some stand up comedy in a pub!

Not sure whether I'll be over this year - depends on school work and money - and whether it'll be just me or the folks as well. Leaning towards just me though!

I'll take a ticket for that ride!

I'm a definite for the Raid.

I can't imagine having much more fun than last year (except for joining in a visit to BSRCorp HQ).

mmm, stuff to do this year....

Good idea. (except for those members whose significant others don't enjoy watching the scenery go past at speed).

Yes

Do any of the Ford teams have testing days around this time of year? Would be great to be part of one.
Quote:
Dyno Day
Yes, not to mention gets people in Herrods door. (although just to see the Minginator would be great)
Quote:
FPV Tour
Yep

Perhaps something along the lines of a motorkana (speeling) type of event for the members who are speed challenged. Perhaps tied into the Calder Park set up we had last year as there was plenty of room over back to do it.

For those who are bringing there better halves (poor bastards ), some events that they may enjoy (ala, wine tasting, coffee/lunch/shopping in the city, etc)

Amnesty from 3kph over speeding fines for the week.
