Hi again from sunny Christchurch. Well
registrations have closed and we now have over 260 people registered, and
150-odd cars in the show. WOW! This means it really is going to a great event
and the Canterbury Club is really looking forward to hosting everyone here in
the Garden City. Plans continue to develop and the team are really putting in
the effort to make the event a memorable one. Registrations have now closed, so
if you've left it too late, your going to miss out a really neat weekend. That's
about it for now folks, so see you at Labour weekend!
# 4: 4 Sept 2008
We have made a great change to the venue for the Gala Dinner and Prize-Giving.
We have decided to move this to the Christchurch Convention Centre, a much
bigger, brighter and better venue which will better cater for our projected
numbers and also provide and much more suitable location for what we have
planned. As you can see from the picture below, this is a great location for
this gala event. Registrations close 15 Sept.
Registrations still percolating along. As of the end of August, we now have 84
registrations, with 171 people attending and 90 cars so far, with the Mustang
Extravaganza Car Show. We are of course still looking for more registrations, so
please, if you haven't sent in your forms yet, please do so ASAP. We note that
there are still 10 rooms booked at the Latimer Hotel under the Mustang
Convention, but we haven't received forms for. Registrations close on 15
September and that's not far away. A really great weekend is planned, so you'd
better make it a priority!

* Update 9 Sept : Total registrants 200
and 103 cars
Please note that final registrations close 15th September.
The Westpac Arena is a great venue for a car show and we are aiming to have
150 cars on display (over half way there already), including some very rare (not
to mention expensive) V8 beasts for the public to view. We have been very
fortunate to have Paul Kelly Motor Company come on board as a major sponsor and
with this advertising budget we expect to have in the vicinity of 3,000 people
through the doors on the day of the car show. It is Paul’s car that is featured
on the car show poster below

You won’t want to miss the opportunity to be part of such a great display of
Mustangs. Once again we’d also like to reiterate to club members that it’s not
all about winning prizes, but about sharing your passion and pride in your car
with others. We would like to see your daily driver to the show room beauty and
everything in between. This is about giving the public an opportunity to be awed
by an amazing collection of V8 muscle. The greater the variety on display – the
better the show for everyone. If you have queries about anything at all
please don’t hesitate to contact me or any of the people listed below. Looking
forward to seeing you all at convention. Dallas
