Calling Ford Discovery Centre & Ford

As we all know the Tickford Family Day for 2002 is creeping up on us. The Tickford Car Club - SA is looking into how we can make it more of a weekend for our members. There are a couple of things we are considering, firstly we would like to go to the Discovery Centre on the way over, so we need to know who we need to talk to and the prices and opening times. Secondly, we want to do a tour of the Ford factory so we need to know the details of how we canmake this happen and who we need to talk to.

Thanks for all your help,

Rodney
Chairman

cool

Hi Rodney,

To answer your questions... that would be me... and me!

I handle bookings for the FDC and the Ford plants. I doubt if a tour of the Broadmeadows plant will be possible at that time but I should be able to get you through Geelong. The Discovery Centre offer group discounts for 15 or more people ($3.80 p/p)and is open every day except Tuesdays from 10am till 5pm. Give me a call on 03 5227 8709 to book.

Felicity

I dunno, after the Ford Forums Raid I think Flick has the right to be called the best tour guide in victoria. I'm sure none of the other raiders would disagree! :s3

Yes but you weren't doing a tour.. but it did involve a 100ltr pool of jelly out the back...

Edit: I have since been told that Flick is the best "tour guide" of the FDC on the face of the earth..
