2012 Otago Community Hospice Charity Cruise!
« on: September 30, 2012, 03:13:56 PM »
I came up with the idea for this after my mother passed away from cancer while in the Hospice in 2008. The aim of the event is primarily to raise as much money for the Otago Community Hospice as possible, to say thanks.
- In 2010's event, we raised $2,235.50 for the hospice, with just 155 cars on a rainy day, and with the event ending three hours early!
- In 2011's event, we raised $1,401.90 for the hospice, with only 75 cars on an even rainier day than 2010! Didn't put some people off, despite the wet we still had a Porsche 911 and Ferrari 550 Marenello turn up and participate, as well as a brand new Corvette ZR-1!

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

- Pay money to officials (passengers need to pay $5 or more too)
- Sign a disclaimer form, so we aren't liable for anything you do
- Get a small sticker put on your car to show you've paid (any cars that arrive back from the cruise without a sticker will have to pay)
- Line up and park where directed
- Do above cruise route. Drive safely, its not a race!
- 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.

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, Corvette, Camaro, Mustang etc). Classic cars (Shelby, Jaguar, Mini, Rover, Triumph and so on). Hot rods. Sports trucks/SUVs (Dodge Ram, Ford Territory Turbo, Ford F250 etc). Japanese sports cars (Skyline, Supra, RX-7, WRX, EVO, NSX, S2000, GTO, 300zx/350z/370Z and so on). Japanese 'old school' classics (Pre R30 Skylines, Prince models, DX Corolla, AE86, RX3 and so on). Vintage cars (Model T Ford, Daimler 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!

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!

On this Sunday peeps!

Burt Munroes son, John, will be one of the guest judges on the day.

The Otago Heritage Bus Society will be bringing their 44 seater Leyland bus along for the cruise too! If you'd like to ride on the bus during the cruise, they are charging $10 per person. After running costs of the bus (fuel etc) are covered, the rest will be donated to the charity cruise amount.
Help them fill the bus by spreading the word!

And we would love to have more static displays.
