CCC CX, XM and Xantia Rally 7-9/09/2012.

Postby Citroening » Sat Feb 25, 2012 2:02 pm

Hi all,

Date to put in your diary is the 7 - 9th September for the best show of the year... :wink:

It's a bit later this year because the Midlands Rally could only book our usual weekend so it clashed.

Usual location of Little Horwood, MK17 0PF.

Futher details will be posted nearer the time... :D Pickled eggs should be in supply... :twisted: :lol:

PLEASE SEE PAGE THREE FOR A BIG UPDATE!!!

Or here...
As mentioned in the DSM Rally thread, there's big news about the CX, XM and Xantia Rally. Following the CX Section Committe Meeting that was held at the DSM, we are pleased to announce details for the Rally (7-9th September). Please see below for the Rally Advert...

Image

As you can see from the advert above, the main change is that it is Free Entry! You don't have to pay a penny to enter the field and camping is free of charge too! No expensive entry here at all...

We will of course have a convoy again, kindly organised by Jim, to Bletchley Park (home of the WW2 Decoding Machine; Enigma, and other interesting features). Jim is organising a scenic route through the lanes and backroads and upon arrival we can park outside the mansion in the oval. Perfect for photos... This is happening on Saturday at 1:00pm and we have a group visit booked - entry is £12 per head. See their website for what this fantastic location has to offer: https://www.bletchleypark.org.uk/

Cooked Buffet Breakfasts are available on Saturday and Sunday Mornings (from 8am to 10am) at the Shoulder of Mutton Pub next to the Rally Site (£4 per head).

The Fish and Chip Van will be coming around on Friday Evening as is the usual...

For Saturday Evening we have organised a meal to be held at the Shoulder of Mutton Pub. A menu was drawn up with the Pub that features a wide choice so (hopefully!) everyone will be catered for. The menu is below, and a vegetarian option will of course be available. Menu subject to change.

Starters - Smoked Salmon, Paté Dish, Tomato and Basil Salad.

Mains - Beef Bourguignon, Coq au Vin, Old Smokey Burger (Pub Special).

Desert - Tart ou Citron, Chocolate Fudge Cake, Profiteroles.

The cost for the meal is £15 per head and will be at 7:30pm on Saturday Evening.

Refreshments on the Saturday and Sunday Afternoons will be available in the kitchen that include Filled Rolls, Tea, Coffee and Soft Drinks.

There will be trophies for Best CX, XM and Xantia present, with rosettes too for 1st, 2nd and 3rd (like the X Rally). Also there is of course the Roger Bradford “Roger’s Choice” Trophy (the car he would exclaim "Good God" at if he had seen it...) and the Eileen Stearnes Trophy (the car that has been brought back from the dead/improved the most and deserves special recognition...)

...and of course the brilliant atmosphere that is only the CX, XM and Xantia Rally!

Don't forget the Pickled Eggs... :lol: :lol: :wink:

See you there! :-D

We got left right in the mire last year with food being cancelled a week before so the Hog Roast was all we could do...

There are new people in the Pub and I believe that talks are under way for the organisation of the Evening Meal being held there, as well as the Breakfasts too... :)

More details will be available nearer the time. :)

Perhaps I should of said that I was ambling towards the tent, when it pounced on me for no reason whatsoever.

Will make sure I can make this one.

No Peugeot this time. This time I can be given the evils for daring to turn up in a Jaguar...if I'm let in at all!

Be good to catch up and, of course, feast on pickled eggs!
