Latest News - 9th February 2012

Hi All.... Well it's not long now! We have people coming from USA, Canada and Australia; some leaving in the next few days. All our plans have fallen into place and we're confident this will be our best event to date..........

Next week entrants will receive an email they can print off to take to participating Shell/Z Service Stations on their way to, at and returning home from the event to receive the fuel discount.

With the number of entrants planning to register on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, we have extended Tuesday hours and these are now: 

Tuesday 21st February

12 noon - 9:00pm

Wednesday 22nd February

7:30am - 10:00am

Wednesday 22nd February

3:00pm - 8:00pm

Thursday 23rd February

7:30am - 10:00am

Thursday 23rd February

5:30pm - 7:30pm

Friday 24th February

7:30am - 9:30am


Now, with the breakfast being available Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings from 7.30am until departure, we have to be organised!  We don’t want anyone disappointed people now do we?  So for those registering Tuesday or Wednesday, can you confirm to Toni ( what days you want breakfast and for how many people? 

As per previous email, breakfast is sausages, bacon, hash browns, eggs, baked beans or spaghetti and toast.  All for just $10.00 and cooked by a Master Chef.  Walk ups will be $12.00.

As we need to order the food items a day in advance, could you pleeeeease let Toni know?

We have complimentary tea and coffee onsite Tuesday to Friday along with a coffee vendor for all those that want that fancy latte, mocky slim trim stuff (can you tell I don’t drink coffee?).

We have a 20m x 10m marquee with tables and chairs etc for you to eat your breakfast at.  And if you’re all good, we’ll chuck in salt & pepper, margarine, jam and marmite, sauce and a knife and fork.

Also on Tuesday afternoon 4pm till early evening, our photographer is available to take still shots of you and your pride and joy at a site which will provide an amazing back drop.  You can choose to have just the one vehicle or any number if you have friends travelling with you.  Again, booking is essential so also confirm this to Toni.

Finally, Rest Home Run.  We’re looking for 70 cars to do this on the Thursday morning.  Yes you will have time for your breakfast and be back in time for the run to Opunake.  Now you have all become clever and realise Rest Home Run cars get to the front of the queue on Thursday so it will be the first 70replies received, also include this when you reply to Toni.

Thank you to all who have entered.  Numbers have climbed dramatically in the last three weeks.  If you haven’t entered and have a change of mind, then you can email Toni up until 20thFebruary or we will accept entries at the event during the hours specified.  Please note, there is a late entry fee.

See you real soon.


JR, Toni and our support crew at Americarna

PS.   The Chef doing breakfast is my son in law to be effective 10thMarch and he doesn’t want to screw up!  Andy is well used to catering to 100’s of people quickly.
