Upcoming events June 2016

Events coming up:

The static display for Saturday 4th June at Casemates is cancelled.

Sunday 5th June. BBQ. We shall be holding a BBQ at the club house. This time we are going for a straight forward traditional type BBQ. Now you know how popular these are and as usual places are limited. So if you want to come and spend a pleasant afternoon amongst friends book your place ASAP. The cost as usual will be kept to a minimum. So book your place for Sunday now. 1pm at the club house.

The Queen’s 90th Birthday Tea Party on Saturday June 11th 2016 organised by The Sol Club.

At The Malaga Aviation Museum, Malaga Airport
The Director of the Museum has been very successful in promoting events based at his Museum.
He is offering us the opportunity of enjoying an event in celebration of Her Majesty’s official birthday in the form of a Buckingham Palace type ‘Tea Party’ in the Museum’s gardens.
The invitation to join in the fun is open to all, there is no fee and tea, cakes, and biscuits will be provided free.
The event has the support of the Aviation Authority, who will be opening nearby disused car parks, at no charge, which offer more than ample parking for the expected crowds. We do not want to spoil the surprises for participants but they will include a choir and some special attendees.
The Museum has previously called on the SOL club to provide suitable cars and for this very special event they are, with the support of the Auto Museum and other clubs, to have an outstanding static display of cars. If you have a vehicle which you feel can make a contribution can you please contact Ray Holland on ray.l.holland@btinternet.com as soon as possible.

All classic cars are particularly welcome and the car parks will be exhibitions in themselves.
While the Museum’s catering will, due to financial restraints, be modest all are very welcome to bring your own picnic cool boxes so you can enjoy the event further.

Please support this opportunity of celebrating a very special event for a very special Lady.
Cars on display will need to arrive before 16.00 and the fun (you will only find out if you go) begins at 16.30.

Saturday 18th June.

Prado del Rey. Our friends from Cadiz have organised an outing to Prado del Rey on the 18th June. These outings are always very popular with our club and we hope many of you will be able to join in. I will be putting out more information on this once I get it. This is a long weekend and some of you may want to make a short break of it. I have looked at prices and Cortijo de la Molinera is up at £56 per night. This hotel is situated beside the pantano in Arcos de la Frontera. Apart from a pleasant place to stay and good food it also offers fantastic views of the lake and Arcos itself. They only have a limited number of rooms available. So if you are intending in staying let me know as soon as you can so I can book.

Sunday 19th June.

Upcoming event: Alcala Del Valle 29th August 2015

Alcala del Valle. If you all remember a few months back I told you all that last year six cars went to this event and we had a fabulous time. Yesterday I received a phone call from them to tell me that they are again organising the event this year on the Saturday 29th August. As there are some beautiful towns in the area I was thinking that perhaps some of us may want to spend a few extra days and tour these towns.

My suggestion is that we leave on the Friday, Saturday is the Rally, then we can use Sunday to tour the area and return either Monday or Tuesday. Its your choice and if you want or cannot stay then you come back whenever is best for you. However it would help if you could let me know your intentions so I can plan ahead. There is only one hotel in Alcala and the cost is about 50 euros a night or less if we can get a deal.

So Guys and Girls, have a think and let me know as soon as you can.

Drive-It Day 2015 – Sunday 26th April. – CANCELLED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER

fbhvc[1]
As part of this annual national event launched and publicised by The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC), it commemorates the 64 cars that left London on a 1000 mile trial in April 1900.  The Association in Gibraltar has also kept up with this tradition for many years.
Drive IT Day encourages owners of all vehicles 25 years old or older, two, three or four wheels out onto the roads for the day.
Drivers and passengers of such vehicles arriving at our clubhouse in Windmill Hill  for about 10.30am for a coffee or light refreshment.  Coffee and water are free but any other needs to be paid for.  At about 11.30 we shall leave Windmill Hill and drive around Gibraltar for about an hour or so.  We shall then go to Ocean Village and display our vehicles on the promenade whilst we have some lunch.   We decided to go to the newly opened Restaurant, The Ocean, for a selection of tapas for lunch. Problem is we need to know who is coming so we can reserve spaces so please get in touch if you wish to attend the lunch.

2015 Rally application forms now available!

Attached are this year’s entry forms for our Rally in May.  This is the one event in the year that we ask all our members to participate.  It is extremely important for the Association that we put on a good show and exhibit maximum number of Vehicles. Please remember that by Vehicles we also mean motorcycles.  We expect many visiting clubs and individuals to participate this year and by showing your vehicle off at the Rally we show others what a wonderful wealth of Vehicles we have in Gibraltar.Non Members: GCVA Entry form 2015 non members
