Re: FF 2004 Christmas Meet / Cruise Poll

most of the options would include a BBQ lunch at some point along the cruise

oh and please also post whether or not you would be interested in a dinner in the evening like we did last year

Re: FF 2004 Christmas Meet / Cruise Poll

I picked either Black spur or the cruise/go karting

If go karting ends up being a goer (for this or any future cruises) may i suggest Somerton Karts on the Hume, approx. 2km's north of Ford HQ, they have the fastest hire karts in Vic (2-stroke), they are now well run too, not too pricey.

Re: FF 2004 Christmas Meet / Cruise Poll

I'd like to see something similar to last year but avoiding those crap roads getting out of the city. Really makes a big cruise too hard to manage.

I don't care where we cruise too..... but at the end of it there HAS to be decent accomadation and place for a monumental piss up

Re: FF 2004 Christmas Meet / Cruise Poll

I didn't vote for GOR for the pure fact that I can drive on it whenever I want and when theres a cruise it's usually not really that fun a drive as it's too congested. Out of them all I chose a local cruise with a visit to the roaring forties tour as I've never been there before. And as for staying overnight, definatly need somewhere where we can piss up! You're a thinker Greg....

this is a family event, the day will be aimed to be absolutely family friendly. Then if everyone is up for it, there would be a dinner, a bit of socialising etc. and a few special awards handed out. Of course as always there will be the usual drinking late into the night for anyone who is that way inclined! I really recommend everyone stays, because it is always an absolute barrel of laughs, and many a nickname has been born at these events!

Re: FF 2004 Christmas Meet / Cruise Poll

ok folks, as far as dates go its looking quite tight!

20-21 November: Heathcote Drags / Holden-Ford Nationals
28 November: XR club xmas party
4 December: E-series cruise down G.O.R.
11 December: XR Club cruise to Eildon / Black Spur
19 December: Winton fun day

sooo we have a few choices, all of which will be a compromise. Ive listed them below:

Option 1. Saturday 27 November.

Pros: Still a while to xmas, so shouldnt clash with any work / family events; nothing else on for that day, so should be able to maximise numbers!

Cons: XR club breakup next day

Option 2. Saturday 11 December

Possibility of combined run with XR club to Eildon / Black spur maybe??? Would need to confirm with them, but most of them are members here as well, so it shouldnt be too much of a drama. Chris can you confirm if it would be ok?? Then we would all go our seperate way after cruise and head out for our FF break up dinner

Pros: Should be a big cruise which would be great!!! Possibility of gaining new members

Cons: Not able to do our own thing, but thats no big drama - that area was one of our preferred options anyway

Option 3. Saturday 19 December. Clash with Winton fun day

Pros: would save me all the money ill spend if i go to Winton! not too many planning on going anyway, so shouldnt have a huge impact on numbers at cruise; plenty of time for planning

Cons: Quite close to xmas

any comments???
