Autumn Weekender - 31st August to 1st September 2013

Post  Rich on 6/2/2013, 11:24 pm



www.autumn-weekender.co.uk

Our second Autumn Weekender event is scheduled for the weekend starting Saturday 31st August 2013, at Billing Aquadrome, Northampton (NN3 9DA).

Last year's event was arranged a little 'last minute' so it's hoped that with an earlier announcement and loads of publicity we can get a whole lot more people coming this year. We'll be inviting area MR-Rover groups to join us as well as national clubs with a modern MG Rover link. The aim is to turn this into the largest MG-Rover camping weekend of the year, bringing the event season to an entertaining featuring:

  • Car displays for all modern MGR models
  • Local and national club displays
  • Charity display - UK Homes 4 Heroes
  • Auto Jumble (Small donation from profits to charity)
  • Treasure Hunt Road Run around the Northamptonshire countryside
    (Saturday - Small fee to charity TBC)
  • Saturday night BBQ (bring your own!)
  • Pride of Ownership competition (Sunday - £1 per entry to charity)
  • Driving skills competition (Sunday - £1 per entry to charity)

All attendees will have a reduced rate for camping over the weekend,
booking directly with the venue on 01524 781453 and quoting the
reference SAW13. Prices are:

Day Entry ... £10 per car per day
Camping (standard) per pitch per night ... £15 (Normal cost £20)
Camping (with electrical hookup) per pitch per night ... £21 (Normal cost £26)

Please note that the reduced rate is for the event period only. A pitch
includes one car and occupants, and one tent/caravan.

Interested:
  • Rich & Kate - Weekend
  • Iain - Weekend
  • Andy & Hellen - Weekend
  • Nick - Weekend
  • Macomac - Weekend
  • Ben - Weekend
  • Lee - Weekend
  • Steve - Weekend

Sounds good to me. Presumably Billing doesn't have the "land pirate" problem it once did?

We'll be stepping up publicity of this event very soon and starting to invite other MGR related groups to come and join us. We're already on the Aquadrome website for bookings and I'll put up the details here shortly.

We also have some other news. We're hoping to have a second event going on with us and linked via our chosen charity UK Homes 4 Heroes... A sponsored sleep-over! This will be open to anyone involved or supporting the charity and will obviously boost the numbers of folk joining us for the Saturday evening. More details as it becomes available...

Carting! Great outdoors Get \'em boys!

The big push has now begun... I have updated the booking details in the first post and publicised them on mg-rover.org today. I've also set up the new facebook page for news and views as they happen so feel free to 'like' that too...

Just two weeks to go... and your last chance to book for the weekend's camping at a discounted rate. Also, don't forget to order your t-shirts with a discounted price if you order a sticker too!

We're just getting the wet stuff out of the way so that we can have a dry bright weekend to look forward to.

PS. I could do with a volunteer or two to help with the Driving Skills competition. Chris was going to do it and is still providing the kit, but he would like to bring the shooting range an can't run both!

Thanks so much to all who attended and especially to those who leant a hand in making this year's event so great. Attendance was about double that of last year, so it looks like we're heading in the right direction.

We've taken on feedback and next year I'll be assisted by a couple of others, a sort of event team, so we can discuss how to move forward and action some great ideas.

So here's to the next one... The Autumn Weekender 2014, August 29th - 31st, Billing Aquadrome.

cheers Great outdoors Thumbs up

Hi Rich

Sorry I was only able to visit for a few hours on the Saturday, but was made most welcome and will definitely try to get more involved in the future when I have more time!

Best wishes

Malcolm.
