Otago Community Hospice Charity Cruise 2011


Recommended Posts

This first post will be continuously updated, so please keep checking back.

ABOUT/PAST EVENTS

I came up with the idea for this event after my mother passed away from cancer while in the Hospice in 2008. So the aim of the event is primarily to raise as much money for the Otago Community Hospice as possible, to say thanks. http://www.otagohospice.co.nz/funding.html

In 2010's event, we managed to raise $2,235.50 for the hospice, with just 155 cars (official count - actual number possibly higher) on a rainy day, and with the event ending three hours early! Lets try beat that this year, with lots of sunshine this time!

HOW WE RAISE THE MONEY

By charging each driver and each passenger a minimum 'donation' of $5 (higher amounts are encouraged if you can afford it) to enter the cruise. And gold coin donation for members of the public at the opening of the car show at 1pm.

DATE, AND NEED TO KNOW DETAILS

- Sunday, 20th November 2011

- Meet up at Tahuna Park, Victoria Rd (Dunedin) from 9:00am to 10:00am. Please try to be there by 10:30am at the latest.

- Depart for cruise at 11:00am after a possible briefing. NO later than 11:10am.

- Gates will shut just before the cruise leaves, and will reopen when we get back. Cars which do not have a sticker on them after the cruise will have to pay to get onto the field.

- Arrive back before 1pm for food/car show etc.

- Five trophies will be available to hand out for cars on display after the cruise, best Japanese, American, European, Australian and British cars.

ELIGABLE CARS

All exotic cars (Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche, Lamborghini, Maserati, Lotus, TVR, Mercedes and so on). All muscle cars (FPV/Tickford and HSV/HDT etc cars, Corvettes, Camaro's, Mustangs and of course every other grunty V8). Classic cars (Shelby's, Jaguars, Mini's, Rover's, Triumphs and so on). Hot rods. Sports trucks/SUV's (Dodge Ram's, Ford Territory Turbos, Ford F250's etc). Japanese sports cars (Skylines, Supras, RX-7's, WRX's, EVO's, NSX's, S2000's, GTO's, 300zx/350z/370Z's and so on). Japanese 'old school' classics (Pre R30 Skylines, Prince models, DX Corollas, AE86's, RX3's and so on). Vintage cars (Model T Ford, Daimlers and so on). Race cars/track cars (if not road legal then tow them on the cruise on the trailer!).

If your car doesn't fall into any of those categories, does it have any aftermarket modifications (bigger wheels, bodykit, fancy paintwork, rare factory bodykit and so on)? If thats a yes, you can bring it along too - even if it is a 4WD/people carrier (so long as they aren't standard looking!).

This is also the perfect opportunity to get those prized treasures out of the garage, the ones that very seldom get seen by the public eye. You'll possibly have a slightly bigger chance to win a trophy and prize pack for doing so!

ENTER YOUR CAR CLUB

This event is a great chance for recruiting new members! We'll even allow you to set up wee stalls etc around the edge of the grounds so you can have somewhere for people to learn more about your club and join up!

Hey all, updated the first post with the latest info, so please have another wee read if you haven't already. :)

Also, if you're on the Facebook Group, i have to ask you to please head over to the new Facebook page. Facebook are archiving all the old groups and its now better for an event like this to have a page instead of a group. If FB stopped changing things which aren't broke we wouldn't have this problem!

And PLEASE spread the word to everyone who owns a car (every little bit helps, seriously!)! This event really relies on word of mouth, the hospice is in deficit this year partially due to the Chch earthquakes, so we need to raise even more than last year!
