Old Speckled Hen Run*

Mid-Winter Xmas Dinner Run

Once again we are returning to stay at Chateau Tongariro and have obtained another attractive deal this year.

The details are:

Although we don’t have the good services of Les & Chris Newman we still will do an interesting drive which will take in the West side of the Lower North Island before arriving at the Chateau Tongariro where our accommodation will be for the night.

The deal at the Chateau Tongariro includes a special Dinner with all the Christmas cheer one would expect in the Chateau’s elegant dining room, double/twin room accommodation and a cooked buffett breakfast all for the price of $182.00 per person shared double room.

So booked with Michael & Elaine Anderson (before the 6th June 2018) to experience a little of the Downton Abbey lifestyle without the worry of managing all those servants.

Ladies remember to bring your posh frocks and bling and gentleman a jacket (tie optional)

NB. Drinks are your cost.

The hotel does have a plunge pool sauna for those who need water solace!!!

This deal is valid only to the 6th June (hence the reason for the early advice) for the stay on the night of the 28th June. If you wish to extend your stay please advise Michael Anderson and he will see what can be achieved. This may be an opportunity to do some of the walks in the National Park or a little sightseeing!!!!

Alternatively you are encouraged to join the group attending the Mid-Winter Back Country Adventure Tour starting on Friday 29th June to Sunday 1st July 2018. See separate email dated the 21st May from Paul Walbran.

Note to secure your booking at this great rate you will need to pay a deposit of $182.00 into the bank account of MF&ER Anderson – 010797 0356716 00 no later than Wednesday 6th June 2018.

Meet: Waikanae at 9.00am for a 9.30am departure.

Where: New World Supermarket Car Park.

Destination: The Chateau Tongariro

Confirmation: To Michael & Elaine Anderson at michael.anderson@xtra.co.nz or Mobile: 021 620 065 by Wednesday 6th June 2018 please.

Targa NZ-Vintage Car Club South Island Time Trial 2018

Targa NZ is known as “The Ultimate NZ Road Race” & for the second time only is returning to mainland lower South Island for 2018!!

With your support an entirely new event to be run in conjunction with Targa NZ South Island Rally may become known as “The Ultimate NZ Time Trial!”

Open to all Vintage Car Club members & those of affiliated clubs with VCC eligible vehicles.

Why-: To create a unique motoring spectacle of older vehicles being driven & displayed to encourage younger people to join VCC & existing members to use their classic & vintage cars as intended.

When-: Monday 22nd to Saturday 27th October 2018 (5 days of driving closed tarmac roads!).

Where-: Otago/Southland/Central Otago (Start/finish to be confirmed, but some significant stages include Otago Harbour hill roads, the Catlins, Teretonga, Highland Park, the Crown Range, Queenstown-Glenorchy return etc).

How-: Time trial competitors will have a unique opportunity to drive all closed Targa stages with the safety of knowing that all participants have staggered start times, drive in the same direction, on the same road, with nothing coming towards them!!

This is not a balls-out speed event, but rather an exercise in precise driving & time-keeping to maintain a set average speed over iconic lower South Island roads.

Entry fee will be significantly discounted from standard Targa competitor fee of $7,280 + gst, but will still cover all essentials including timing, tracking, medical & recovery as for Targa competitors & Targa tour. (Current discussions with Targa NZ management suggest $2-2,500 + gst).

We need a minimum 20 registrations of interest to make this work.

Please email Rod Corbett rcorbett@xtra.co.nz to register your interest or call Rod on 03 423 1551 or 027 433 8772 for further information.
