Newsletter 12 February 2019

Hi All

Well this is the last email prior to the event.

If you are coming from the South to New Plymouth you will see the Americarna arrow sign just passed the race course on your left, pointing to registration on Rogan Street to the Stadium.

If you are coming form the North when you hit New Plymouth stay in the left lane and turn left onto Elliot Street.  McDonalds will be ahead of you.  Just up and over the brow of the hill is Rogan street turn right there.

Attend the Registration centre at the TSB Stadium, Rogan Street, New Plymouth.

9:00am – 6:30pm

Thursday 21st

At registration we have a dedicated area for First Time Attendees, given the large number, this is required to ensure our registration team can spend the time assisting our First Timers.

REST HOME RUN IS FULL – thank you to all our wonderful entrants who have volunteered to visit the Rest homes in New Plymouth on Thursday morning before our daily run starts.  Get ready to see older generation reminisce about your car.  Or the older generation who is fascinated by the technology in the new cars.

Themes for Americarna 2019.  My apologies for the confusion on the theme for the Saturday night event.  It is up to you which one you dress up in.  Rock n Roll, Western or Hawaiian.  I can see a dance off happening here!!!  Prizes for the best outfits in each section.

The other days you can dress up to the max if you wish, there will be no themes.  The Merchandise in the Trailer is pretty good this year – check out my new Americarna Caddy T-Shirt, I look pretty dazzling …… eh!

We will have our car wash stuff available at the TSB Stadium to clean your car, however, if you would like a pressure washer, there is a new EZI WASH open in New Plymouth on 634 Devon Road.  It is on the entrance to the city from the North next to the Z Service Station.

Tawhiti Museum - Hawera- 
There are 50 free entries available to the visit to Tawhiti Museum while in Hawera on Friday 22 February.  Note:  This is for the main Museum only.  FULL

There will be a free bus to take you to the museum at 2:45pm and return at 4:15pm.

Please email with MUSEUM in the subject line to secure your spot on the bus to the museum.  Available to the first 50 entrants who email me.

Mt Messenger – for those who are coming from the North to New Plymouth, please be mindful there are road works in the Mt Messenger Tunnel that could cause delays of up to 30 minutes between 7:00am – 7:00pm.  We suggest a “Pit Stop”  before you reach that point of your trip.
