CCC CX, XM and Xantia Rally 2012 - 7-9th September - FREE!

Post by Citroening »

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: http://www.bletchleypark.org.uk/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

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!

BXs are of course very welcome too... :)

Cheers Franklyn. I'm going to book the weekend off. Sounds like a great venue. Just need to decide, do I come down in the BX or the XM?

Only a 380 mile round trip for me...but free entry and camping sound good to me! Might have to be a toss up between this and the ICCCR though... :?

Free entry? How's that working then? Not that I'm saying it's a bad idea! Could tempt me into making the trek, especially with a visit to Bletchley.

...because we (the CCC CX Section) are paying for the field ourselves. Also there's a lot of people...'mentioning'...the cost of a certain large Citroen Show this year and naturally people will have a lot of expense after that certain show (entry, camping, physically getting there...) and thus we thought it best to do it free entry.

As Mick has mentioned, Bletchley Park is extra however it will definitely be worth it.

Any other queries just ask, and it would be great to see some BXs there. If you like pickled eggs, then this show is a must. :lol: :wink:

Franklin, do we need to pre-book for the evening meal, or just book on arrival? Cheers Mark.

Book with us on arrival Mark as most will do, however if anyone wants to register their interest via PM/Email then that's fine (order what you want to eat when you're there, we'd just like to have an idea of numbers to give to the Pub). There'll be more than enough space I am sure and we've already provisionally told the Pub a number of around 30+...
