Update - 5th July 2013

Steering wheel

Hi One and All..... Well firstly, I must apologise for the lack of news coming from myself! It's been a very hectic year and my time has been under considerable pressure which has obviously impacted on you not hearing from us.

So updates – registrations are going very well and I will again stress that if you haven’t booked your accommodation, please do so as some motels are already fully booked.

Some parts of next year’s event will be completely different from our last.  We’re confident you will enjoy the change.  We will outline the programme changes in the next week or so.

With my workload for the rest of this year taking a lot of my time, I have taken the opportunity to bring Bob Anderson back to work alongside Toni.  Bob, who is known to many of you, has previously been involved with several of our events so when the opportunity became available for him to come back, it was a simple decision for us.

Bob will work alongside Toni and will complement the work she does for all of us in ensuring Americarna continues to be as well run and organised as possible.

Our Saturday Night Entrant Function theme for 2014 is Rock ‘n’ Roll.  Given the costumes from our last event, it should be a hoot to see what some of you come up with.

I did think for a moment grass skirts and coconut shell bras for the ladies but that meant the men would end up in grass skirts for what would have been an Hawaiian theme.  So why didn’t we go with this theme?  Simply, none of you would want to see me in a grass skirt!

Hi Guys & Gals, Toni here.  Just a quick update from me............

Firstly, I send my deepest gratitude to JR for making the wise decision to go with the Rock n Roll theme over the Hawaiian.   Not only is he very kind to save us from the sight of him in a grass skirt but the thought of having to wear a grass skirt and coconut shell bra does not excite me.  A sight once seen, cannot be unseen!

We have had a couple more accommodation providers sign up as supporters for 2014.  We would like to thank the following for coming onboard:

Northgate Motor Lodge
Saddle & Sulky Motel

I would also like to announce a new benefit provider to the Americarna Membership.  Protecta Insurance has signed up offering ½ standard excess on all car insurance.  This benefit will apply to all current Americarna members with car insurance policies with Protecta, regardless whether you deal direct or through any broker in NZ.  Our team would like to extend our sincerest thanks to Protecta for supporting the Americarna membership.  If you would like to sign up click here for more information.

More info to roll out shortly.


JR, Toni & Bob
