Progamme Flyer: October 2018
To all members
Grass Gymkhana – Sunday 4 November: The annual grass gymkhana will be held at Trentham Memorial Park, Upper Hutt, commencing at 2pm. The venue is accessed via a gate at the river end of the park, off Holdsworth Avenue – go via Brentwood Street, off Fergusson Drive. This event usually comprises a series of short driving tests through cones, often against the clock, testing your steering skills and smooth acceleration. As you drive at the speed you feel comfortable with, this is not a speed event as such, so do not let that put you off! However, this is a dry weather event – check with the Secretary if in any doubt, and we do have the following Sunday as a reserve day.
End of Year dinner – Saturday 24 November: We have made a booking for 7pm at the China City Restaurant, 11 Main Street, Upper Hutt. The licensed restaurant is BYO with the usual corkage fee. It has been suggested that with a group, most join in for the 3 course banquet menu (minimum of 10) which is $32 ea. There are GF and VG options available. Please RSVP to the Secretary by 17 November so numbers can be confirmed with the restaurant.
Peugeot Anniversary Weekend – 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the launch of the 504, along with the 70th for the 203 & 80th of the 202. To mark the occasion Sven Slager with Don Howarth are organising a celebratory rally to be held in Taranaki from 16-18 November. If you drive one of these models, or would just like to participate, drop Sven an email at email@example.com or phone 027 769 5919. (The Friday is nominally a day of travel to Taranaki, with an informal get together.). So far 13 crews have been registered as participating, including one South Island member. Sven says, the more the merrier!!!!!!
Technical Afternoon – We still hope to arrange another of these Saturday afternoon sessions shortly for those with a mechanical bent – details will be advised.
2019 Interclub Meet: Planning has commenced for the 2019 edition of this biennial event between members of our club and those from the Auckland club. Next year it is our turn to organise the weekend which will be held next March or April in the central North Island.
