The large car park will be reserved just for us and in the past we have enjoyed the company of up to 120 sports cars at the Hall. The organisers need to know how many cars are coming along so that they can get some ideas of numbers and ensure space for similar cars together. Please let me know if you'd like to attend. See promotional poster here.

Camping is free on the field adjacent to the pub (technically making us residents!). This year we have toilets!!! The pub will be open until very late!

Thu 14th - Mon 18th Brittany Tour 2006
The tour will leave Poole late evening on Thursday 14th September, returning to Portsmouth on the evening of Monday 18th September. The aim is to drive to the end of the Finistere Peninsula, have a nice dinner, and drive back, whilst enjoying the scenery and deserted roads of Brittany. We will be staying in a different hotel each night; in keeping with past September tours these will not be 4 star establishments, but we hope to make some of them more interesting than the average box.
At this early stage we cannot give any definitive cost of the tour; based on the previous tour to Brittany, we expect ferry and accommodation to come out at about £350 to £400 per car. We are hoping to include one evening meal within this cost.
If anyone is interested email Gavin Tarrant mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Brittany Tour with a subject of Brittany Tour. Having some idea of numbers will help get us a better deal. Deposits will be around 100GBP per car payable sometime in April
