PostSubject: 2010 Christmas Cruise, Final Update   Tue Dec 07, 2010 10:27 am

With just over 5 days till the cruise I thought I better give everyone a low down on everything that is happening.

For those who haven’t seen the route map here it is (you can street view it if you so wish!)
http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&msa=0&msid=115916638409770196881.000493ae419a19fe7b3b5&ll=51.33466,1.401132&spn=0.003553,0.010568&z=17


The trophies have arrived and look brilliant, but you can’t see them till the day! So don’t forget to be in with a chance of winning one, there are the following categories.
Best Dressed Car
Best Dressed Adult
Best Dressed Child

So get creative to be in with a chance of winning!

I have to make sure I say thank you to Thanet Sports Trophies in Broadstairs high street, quality product and they even gave us a little bit of discount! http://www.thanetsportstrophies.co.uk/


We now have loads of raffle prizes thanks to some very generous donations from a few people/businesses.

The prizes now include:
A meal for two
£30 M&S vouchers
Some Alcohol!
Tins of sweets and biscuits
Cuddly toys
And a few other bits a pieces.

Raffle tickets are £1 a strip (5 tickets) and can be bought on the day, the draw will be back at the starting point as will the awarding of the trophies! 100% of proceeds from raffle tickets are going to the Pilgrims Hospice.

Thank you to:
Vee and Den Vine
Shaun and Rose Collier
Thanet Motor Centre (01843 296002)
Phase 2 Discos (07831 660725)
St James' Bar and Restaurant (07511018764)
And many others who I have probably forgotten (sorry).


We have also had the club and the cruise mentioned in Practical Classics Magazine, and I have heard from a few magazines that they are interested in doing small pieces on the event! So make sure you do your hair before you get there just in case we get some pictures in the mags! Very Happy





Once again, I just want to thank everybody that has support me in organising this event especially Tony Moss and Shaun Collier who have been working hard behind the scenes!

Merry Christmas to everyone, hope to see you at the event, ohh and don’t fret about the weather I have booked sunshine for the day! On a serious note this event will almost definitely be going ahead, but if the weather is as bad as it was last week, then keep checking our website (www.thanetclassics.co.uk) for any updates!

Can’t wait to meet you all,

All the best,

Lee

Cheers can you put some updates on the thread on Hazzard as I can't log in anymore! Neutral Account needs verifying!

Just basically what was above and about food and drinks being available at the Red Arrows! Very Happy

P.S. had the guy who runs Essex Classics give me a ring and he reckons there will be 4 or 5 of them coming down to the cruise! Massive respect to them for making the effort! Very Happy

It may be a idea for all members coming on the cruise tomorrow to make a note of the club mobile number 07746227385

Lee will be on this number to answer any questions and give directions.
