FPV DAY - Melbourne Trip

Hi,

Since Gary and myself don't get a chance to go to the club meeting all that often, can some-one please tell me if the club is arranging to go down to Melbourne for the FPV day in late Feb?

Regards,

Tracee

Re: FPV DAY - Melbourne Trip

I’m posting this after what was said at last night’s meeting.

http://www.stgeorgesmotorinn.com.au/

We’re endeavouring to stay there again, but remember that as people from FordForums who are going could possibly be staying there also you really shouldn’t wait to call up and book yourselves a room.

Michael has already received a number of bookings for that weekend, so don’t wait till the last minute and hope for the best.

This is only 2 ½ months away and the committee are working away behind the scenes to get events organised, but confirmation of numbers going is needed ASAP!

I would presume (if it’s the same as last year) that the majority will drive down either on Wednesday 25th or Thursday 26th and drive back on Monday 1st.

We want to be a lot more organised and have a bigger presence for the 3 branches combined this year, so lets all get behind what is the biggest national gathering of our Tickford/FPV clubs every year.

Cheers
Jason

Hello Members.

The club will be looking to participate at the next FPV Family Day to be held on the 29th Feb 04 at the FPV factory in Melbourne.
We are hoping to make this the largest showing from NSW to date.

At this stage we look like heading down from Sydney on Wednesday 25th Feb and returning to Sydney on Monday 1st March.
These dates are optional to participants, you can come down later or leave earlier if you wish.

The club will be planning some optional activities whilst down in Melbourne.
As part of the activities we hope to tour the V8 motor plant and also the new FPR Race Team HQ. (these are to be confirmed).

If you are available for this event and require accomdation to be booked (single or shared available), please contact Ben 0409 122 763 or Steve 0419 170 620.
We need to have the numbers sorted by early January.

Thanks.
Steve.

Leave the ACT members to me, i will submit entry forms etc, just one less thing you have to worry about, at this stage we have 7 confirmed that are comming (2 WED 5 FRI).
We would still like to have our cars all together (ACT/NSW/Newie), unless you have other plans?
i have already booked 6 rooms at the Comfort Inn St. Georges.
Can you please let me know what NSW/Newie's plans are for the cruze down on the Wednesday.

Cheers
