[font="Arial Black"][size="6"]Ford Owners Club Meet at the Simply Ford event - May 1st 2011[/size][/font]

We are proud to announce out first offical Ford Owners Club Club meet for 2011. This will be held on the [b]1st of May 2011 at Beaulieu Motor Museum[/b] in the New Forest.

I personally viewed the grounds of this event last year for the club and it is a fantastic venue and you guys are going to have a smashing time.

This meet will be part of the [url="http://www.beaulieu.co.uk/beaulieu/simplyford"]Simply Ford[/url] event that Beaulieu Motor Museum hold every year..

This event is for all types of Ford new and old! Our plan is to hold as many FOC cars as possible so please support us and attend this meet.

Tickets are normally £10 + £1 handling fee.

But if you use the booking code [size="5"][b]FORD2011[/b][/size] you will get £2 off the normal cost if you book through the club!

If you have never been to Beaulieu Motor Museum before then you are in for a treat. Beaulieu Motor Museum is home to [url="http://www.beaulieu.co.uk/beaulieu/lotstosee-national-motor-museum"]National Motor Museum[/url],[url="http://www.beaulieu.co.uk/beaulieu/topgear"]World of Top Gear[/url] and the [url="http://www.beaulieu.co.uk/beaulieu/lotstosee-james-bond-experience"]James Bond Experience[/url] and loads more to see! So even if the weather is a bit ropey there is still tons you can do under cover with the family!


The Ford Motor Company will also kindly be displaying the Ford Supervan 3. Originally built in 1984 when it was 1995 Supervanknown as Supervan 2, this very special Transit was built on a Ford C100 race car chassis and originally powered by a mid-mounted Ford-Cosworth 650bhp 'HB' F1 engine. Supervan 3 first saw the light of day in 1995 and for the next few years, in its unique hand-crafted seven-eighths scale fibreglass body, it was used at special events up and down the country before being 'retired' in 2001. By then the F1 engine had been replaced for reasons of practicality by a Ford-Cosworth Pro Sports 3000 (V6) engine, which it retains today. Power is transmitted via a Hewland gearbox to the rear wheels. The top speed of Supervan 3 is estimated at around 150mph with acceleration which would not disgrace many sports supercars.

We are planning to meet up in the museum entrance and make a grand FOC entrance to the event. Please add your name to this thread and we will add your name to the grand FOC entrance!

You will need to [url="https://www.beaulieushop.co.uk/"]book your tickets[/url] online directly with Beaulieu.


[size="5"]FOC will be meeting in carpark 2 @ 10am Please Feel Free To Join Us For Our Grand Entrance[/size]

This sounds like a good event, but i think the whole driving a Mazda would defeat the object for this sort of meet!

Good luck, i hope it's successful! :)

Luke Pompey

Thanks to FOC for the email about this event, I've been to two events here already with another ford club (fpocuk, ford probe owners club) now another probe owners club (ukpoc) have also advertised this event on there site, so you can count me via the FOC site as it would be good to meet some members new and old, when do you need confirmation by and payment as I'm typing this from South Africa at the moment, dont worry I'll be back in time lol

Mike
RCJ
i'll hopefully be able to make it... will definitely try.
Also will you be bringing club merchandise down with you?
zaykk
ill come up to that make a weekend of it as this new forest dorset?? as i no a nice campsite near here.
Steve
ok guys, i have made a possible attendee list on the first post, just for numbers sake

This is good, looks like its going to be a promising meet for FOC and brilliant support from you guys.

I will try and get some merchandise, we dont have mass amounts due to cost, but we'll try and get some stuff.

good to put some names to faces.

The trick is that we all meet up in the main car park (its big) then all convoy on the grounds so we all get together, we can then do a club meet photo and display this on the club meets page.

rock on!
RCJ
Theres a possibility that my mums bf might come too, he drives a focus ST so could he come representing FOC too?
Steve
of course mate, anyone with a ford can come and represent :)

will be excellent to see him there!
antman99
I was down beaulea last week for a few days away im rather annoyed i wont be able to come with you guys but exams right at the same time and final year uni aint got no time atall, it is brill their and they have some nice old Fords in their museum and of course the Mondeo from Casino Royale. Let me know next time and i will try to come.

I will say you have to be so careful getting their, ponys everywhere!
Steve
shame mate.. we shall be there every year i think from now on.
RCJ
I think, were planning on coming down on the Friday night, and making a weekend of it now too
RCJ
We have tickets to attend now too, so hopefully others come, we want to go to the event anyway, so if FOC are there all the better
fishpond 47
Tickets booked, hope you's dont mind a totally standard mondy there (yes I'll treat it to a wash lol)
Steve
Any ford are welcome mate, FOC is about Ford Ownership and we are grateful your helping represent the club mate!

I probably mentioned it before, but good to keep mentioning it is that we will all meet in the main car park at the entrance, then all convoy in together.
RCJ

Steve
yes, I think we can all have a say on the time i guess...
Steve

I,m certainly hoping to make the event, I,m coming over from Bognor Regis, Just got to get the Fiesta repaired as it failed its MOT on friday with both front springs fractured thanks to West Sussex councils abysmal road maintainence programme! :angry: Ive been to this venue a few times and it is brilliant, be warned though, its also expensive! bring a full wallet and leave some money in the car for enough petrol to get home! Once you start spending it becomes addictive!! :D
RCJ
BUMP on this!

Anyone else attending?

Cant wait now... not too far away now!!
Steve
1 month to go and we will be doing a big push on this now, so get signed up and join us in force... cracking day out rain or shine!
Steve
I was thinking that we all meet up in the car park before we attacned the show, so we can all convoy in together
RCJ
That'll be cool, were heading down on the friday night and making a weekend of it, few drinks and have a look at the sights, even though ive been to the pompey area loads.
Is there anywhere we are meeting in car park?

excellent... you'll enjoy the day rain or shine, the top gear section is pretty neat, a lot of the done up cars from various episodes are there.

Kids and wives will also be happy as there is more than just a museum :)
Limorob
Kids at staying at home. Is it ok to put the clubs website address on my car ?
Steve
sure is.. just to let you know we are also handing out free club stickers to attendies :)
Steve
Spoken to beaulieu and they suggest that we drop into car Park 2 the first car park on your left as you come into through the main gate from the road and all meet up, then convoy as we go in.

Shame they could'nt give us a whole plot but this will be the best way. Shall we all aim for 10am?
dodgy-alan
Sounds good to me, 10.00 AM, carpark 2 it is then !! see you all there.
Limorob
Oh well tickets booked can't wait now so add me to the list Steve & see you all soon
