50th Anniversary Mustang Road Trip

18- 21 April 2014


To all members of:

The Taranaki Mustang Club Inc is organising a road trip over Easter 2014 to celebrate 50 years of the MUSTANG full itinerary is attached.

We invite all mustang owners to join us for all or part of the trip.  We envisage that the northern club members could travel to New Plymouth on Thursday 17th in the evening or Friday morning hence the Friday 12.30pm start time, and finish their tour in Hamilton.  We anticipate that the Manawatu participants would join us in Palmerston North but are welcome to come to New Plymouth to start if they wish.  The early finish on Monday is to allow time for southern members to travel home in the afternoon.  

We have checked accommodation availability at the hotels in Palmerston North, Rotorua and Hamilton as mentioned on the itinerary, and it is up to participants to book their own accommodation.  Room numbers are limited and as it is Easter weekend they may fill up quickly to it is suggested that you book as soon as possible.  

In order for us to organise lunch stops and evening meal venues, we need participants to let us know which part or parts of the trip they plan on doing.  Please email your intentions to nannnarose@xtra.co.nz

We will also have available for purchase, a limited edition 50th Anniversary Polo Shirt in both mens and ladies sizes.  Cost will be $40 per shirt, which needs to be prepaid via a deposit to the TMC account @ TSB 1539420022637 00 with your name clearly on the description.  You will also need to email your shirt order with names and sizes to the above email address.  Shirts will be available for pick up when and where you join the tour.

We look forward to catching up with fellow mustangers during this weekend of celebration of 50 years of fantastic motoring in a MUSTANG
