    All French Car Day?

    Hi all,

    I was going through Unique cars today and noticed an entry for the All French Car Day in July.

    Is this a formal event, would it be worth our while to setup a AF stand and showcase some of our cars and handout many stickers and talk to French car owners and let them know about our little space in hyperspace.

    Food for thought.

    I heard my name mentioned from a mile off.

    What's the details Parry? I'd be excited to go sticker slapping. I may or may not be in Sydney - never know with me in Uni holidays

    Which FCD are we talking about here? If it is Sydney, that is on Sunday 13 July and there will be a few Citroen Froggies there such as UFOs, Paul Smith, DS, Mort Subite etc etc.

    The more the merrier.... head_ban

    Thats the one, on the 13th of July.

    Do we have to formally enter or do we just roll up?

    We in Canberra also hope to have a French car day in July, but on the following Sunday (20 July). The Redex Re-run will be passing through Canberra that weekend and we hope to include that event with ours. Only problem is public liability insurance, how has the Sydney clubs obtained PLI for their event? How much did it cost?

    Pug Club of NSW organises this event, and I am assured they have the PLI sorted.

    It will be on at Silverwater Park, Silverwater (look it up yourselves) and usually starts around 9.30ish and presentations are around 2.30.

    BYO food and drink and comfy chairs etc. If you want an AF meeting place, it can be near the citroen_ flag which will be anchored by one of the citroen_ (no smart arse remarks thanks!)

    If the weather is fine, as it usually is for this day, it turns out to be pretty good.

    You just turn up on the day and pay a $5 entry fee per car and you can choose whether you wish to have your car judged for concours or not. There is always a great assortment of all sorts of froggies. Some rare and special too! dance

    I'm hoping to go, and I'm sure my father-in-law will be going as well, so maybe we could meet up and travel in convoy?

    cheers!

    Sounds good!

    If we're having an Aussiefrogs stand, we need an Aussiefrogs banner! I wonder if Greenblood can print us one? I'll pay for it - I still have the 'sticker proceeds' afterall blush

    Can do wink I was thinking about windscreen banners for the Cit-In at Maleny but time got the better of me these could be printed and then customised with the owners nick/ eg DeKa

    Just a thought....

    you'll spot my car a mile away
    it has spotties on the front and sign writing all over the rear window
    let me know details of where and what time it starts and if you guys like you can use it as a reference

    2pugs a convoy sounds like a plan
    may even see if mother wants to take her lowered 206 down now that her noise has been alleviated
    who can we gather on the way ????

    me wonders what the pug club of NSW will think of an aussiefrogs turn out on basically their day

    I dont think we would upset the NSW Pug club, they might even get some of us to join!

    I think a convoy is a gret idea.

    Everyone meet at my place (Ashfield) and I will supply the coffee!
