View Full Version : Ireland 1st year anniversary

1st July 2010, 01:35 PM
ok all.
i am trying to see if there is enough interest in doing the first run last august as a one year celebration/anniversary of the irish section and building of the mk1 club and members.
the date would be either the 28th or 29th more than likely the 29th which is a sunday.
it will only be a short run about 35km but there will be places for pictures and an excuse to meet up and chat and socialise again.
last year we started of at the carrickdale hotel in jonesborough and finished in carlingford.
probably be a start of 11 or 12 depending.
so anyone interested please check your calenders/black books/blackberry or whatever :lol: and please let me know ASAP so i can try and get numbers and see about the possibility of organising our own parking space in carlingford.
again let me know asap.
thanks all.

Hi all
Just a reminder of the anniversary run planned for the 29th of August around the Carlingford area. This will be a short run taking in about 40 km and is the same as the first run we did when we decided to try and revitalise the club over here ,then we had 3 cars and if you follow the forum on the web site we have come a long way in one year .
I think i can say all those that have attended the runs /shows have all had a good time and long may it continue .This run will probably be the last this year for a lot of us as the cars will be put away for the winter so can i ask as many of you as possible to try and turn out on the day and make this another success .

Those who have said they will be there are

Mark Piper
Ronnie Bann
Colm Toale + 1 other car
Stephen Allison +3 other cars ,and a possible 4 more just awaiting owners to return from holiday.

So guys lets try and make this the biggest turn out to date
If you are interested please let me know ASAP as it is only about 4 weeks away and we are trying to organise something special for those that attend

ok all.
i have driven over the route last friday to ensure everything is still ok.
the plan is to meet in the over flow car park in the carrick dale hotel in jonesborough
between 11.00 and 11.30.
i will have the route sheets with me and we will have a chat and coffee or that and then take it by ear as to when we leave from there,
but 11.30 is the latest, after that there is no garantee we will still be there!
hopefully there will be plenty of cars and enthusiasts to mark the first anniversary of the club over here.
anyone needing more info or having problem contact either myself or colin(mr2mk1)

Good one looking forward to the run but can we wait to nearer the time for finalising the times as some of the guys will be travelling from the likes of Portrush / Coleraine etc .
I would like to find out who will be attending from that part of the country and check what there travel time is to the Carrickdale.


3rd August 2010, 04:08 PM
fair enough... figured 11/ 11.30 would be a good time... not to late or to early, especially with the carrickdale being on the border.
but the time can be easily adjusted, the most important thing is the numbers :) :)
i will let you email the details to everyone colin, as you know who is who in the contacts list.

i was speaking to the lady from carlingford last night about spaces
she is going to try and cone off a section for us near the boot sale,
it is a very busy weekend for them especially on sunday when rte will
be there for people leaving the castle having lived in it for a week
like a medieval person, they are encouraging people to dress in medieval
getup... so be warned :lol: if you want to dress up all the better....
make sure and have the cars all shined up... who knows we might even
get on the tele with the rte cameras...be the cars for the irish job!!!

16th August 2010, 07:55 AM
ok guys... final update for the run on sunday week...
if we all meet up in the over flow car park on the opposite side of the carrickdale hotel
