Duxford with BritCars - CANCELLED!

Post  Rich on 15/3/2008, 9:56 am

It is with regret that we are having to cancel this event at the last minute... Unfortunately, due to quite a few people pulling out both here and from Brit-Cars, we haven't got the numbers for the club deal discount and it's making the trip rather expensive, especially as there isn't any particular display happening this weekend.

I've left the thread active just in case anyone is interested in rearranging this trip later on in the year. It's up to you...

Once again, apologies to those who were still looking forward to it. Ooh embarrassing! Dunno!

Rich.

Jerry Zedman, the Brit-Cars guy who has arranged this event, has posted on the Brit-Cars Forum an update with instructions for us, as follows:

Right folks, in order to get the reduced rate of £12.80 for adults (children are free) then we have to be in a group of ten or more paying adults. I have completed a Group Visit Registration Form which I will hand in upon our arrival at Admissions on the day. My idea is we all plan on turning up at 11.00 hours (let the initial rush die down) and then go in together to take advantage of this offer.

Once inside people are under no obligation to stick together as a group (no, I'm not going to act as tour guide) but I suggest we meet up for a picnic, say around 12.45 hours in the vicinity of Wing Co Joe's Cafe, located between Hangars 3 & 4. You do not have to carry your picnic and chairs, mats, tables, etc. with you as you can return to your car for these items - providing you have your ticket stub with you you will be allowed back in!

Word of warning: there is a special interest event taking place on this day re WWI. If you wish to do this lecture then you will have to book your admission tickets in advance. If you do not book up for this in advance you will not be able to blag your way into this lecture on the day! Don't worry, all other areas will be open!

Because of this special event, there may be quite a bit of interest so the main car park may be full when we arrive (circa 10.30-10.45). If this is the case we may have to park across the road. May I suggest we still aim to meet up outside the main ticket office regardless of where you are parked in order for us to guarantee the group discount rate?

I look forward to seeing you all! Please post up if you can't make it. Please also feel free to post up if you can go - we have no limit on numbers attending!

Jerry
So for a comfortable drive over, we'll meet at The Lakeside pub car park on the A428 Bedford Road at 9.15am (postcode NN4 7YD for SatNav lovers).

Rich.

Dave,

As you said today that Moira may not be able to make this one, is there any chance you could pick up Max? She doesn't want to drive there but would come if she was a passenger! Rolling Eyes

Shame you couldn't come with us Max, and a shame your folks couldn't join our convoy. They would have got our discount entry then...

Glad it's Saturday. I think you're going in the wrong direction weatherwise. Take your waterproofs!!!!

Ok, so I've sorted the starting point/time and a nice route. Yes, it's all in my SatNav again but I've been this way before, quite a few times... I had posted this a little way up but as I've now changed the first post, I thought I'd better bring it to your attention...
PC\'s fault! Laughing

Stewart, are you coming up to our meeting point?

See everyone tomorrow... The only dry day of the weekend!
Flippin\' weather!

Rich.

Shame this one didn't happen, as it was the best weather of the whole weekend, but never mind. I was quite glad of the lay in instead! Perhaps we could look to arrange our own trip for some time in the future.
