Just to let you know of the progress we had over the weekend . We meet with The Port Of Cork and had a meeting with them to discuss the use of the terminal building in Ringaskiddy and surounding car park for a Classic Ford show on the 26Aug . We are going to go down Saturday morning to get a lye of the place . This is a great place for a show all hard standing and we hope to put cars in side the building as well . The Port we very helpful and wished us well with the day , but like everything else this is only a sucess if we get as many cars as possible . So we are calling on all Classic Ford owners to come along and help our cause , More details to follow , Thanks Ger/Ken/John
zagamuffin - July 2, 2012 08:58 PM (GMT)
Great plan lads , behind ye all the way
cpi 111 - July 8, 2012 10:00 PM (GMT)
We went down tonight to have a look , there is loads of room all hard standing loads of parking for the general public and for anyone bringing a car on a trailer . We hope to put about 15/20 cars in the building itself and put the rest of the show cars in the car park in front of the terminal building . We need about 10 to 15 people to help show people where to park up so anyone willing to give a hand on the day get in touch . Next and most important we need cars so anyone with a blue oval or anyone who knows anyone with a blue oval get it down there on the day please if you can. This has the makings of a great show at a great location and all going well a yearly thing . I have been up at The Neal Egan Run and its great to see a few lads come together for a good cause and put on such a show . The south needs to do the same so heres our chance in the home of Ford . Thanks again Ger/Ken/John

Great idea as always gents and a great cause close to the heart of a lot of members! I'll have the flyers / posters made up before the weekend lads! I'll send them onto John.
I'll have the Anglia there - the mk1 won't quite be ready unfortunately!

lads to tie in with the CF4CF show & run we have organised some track time at Kartworld in Watergrasshill for the Saturdy 25th on the night before the Show.
it will be 6pm until 9pm limited to 20 places
i'll start a list and once we have the twenty it'll be like previous watergrasshill days
for booking a place i suggest the 20 guys pay me the €25 then i will pay the total on the morning to Kartworld and all the 20 lads will have to do is sign on.
this should help if anyone is late we will have that place paid for and we can continue to begin at 10am as planned.
paypal is the best way to make a payment.
just "gift" me the €25 on paypal and note your name and contact number on the message.
my paypal address is. email@example.com.
Hope this suits everyone just let me know if ye have any questions.
