Matching Green Classic and Sports Car Show

Post by Humpy » Mon Mar 03, 2014 5:47 pm

Had this invite come through for Matching Green Classic and Sports Car Show

"I am contacting you on behalf of the Matching Green Classic and Sports Car Club.

We have eighty members (plus partners) and, as you can tell by the name of the club, we are based in a village between Epping and Harlow and ten minutes drive from junction seven on the M11.

On the first Sunday of July for the past twenty years, we have organised a classic and sports car show on our large village green.

Over the past few years it has earned a well deserved reputation of being one of the best shows in the south of England attracting over five hundred display vehicles and a public attendance in excess of two thousand.

We have enough parking spaces to separate the display and public vehicles and we do not charge for entry. Visitors have the option whether or not to buy a programme for £2. There is a refreshment marquee, a hog roast, ice cream vendor, raffle and entertainment for the children. Each year we donate a large share of the profit we make from running the show to a local charity. Last year we gave £1200 to Essex Air Ambulance

The show starts at 11 p.m. and ends around 4 p.m. and has a schedule of groups of various vehicles at given times in the display ring with live commentary. Twice during the day’s programme we arrange for more general entertainment or a demonstration of mechanical related subjects.

Each year we try and select something different and interesting. One of our club members recently built a Tamiya radio-controlled Leopard tank and this gave rise to the idea of inviting a club or individuals to show our audience the much larger and more sophisticated versions.

Our club would like to know if your club is interested in giving a demonstration at our show on Sunday 6th July. I am the show organiser and If you require further information please contact me on 01279 731280 (this also the number of Grasmere Garage) or e-mail -------

Regards

Alf Drake"

As usual, contact the organiser direct on alf.drake@yahoo.co.uk or failing that drop me a line.

As it's not that far from me I hope to be able to join you. Unfortunately, at the moment I can't be sure one way or the other, will post a definative answer nearer the time.

I have spoken to the organizer today, and he is very pleased to have the tank club at the show. He said could we please arrive before 9.30. and will show us as usual where to set up. They want us to run our models in the main display arena during the day. Basically go past Old Harlow to Matching green.CM17 ORD.

Ok,

I will figure out where it i, but I will be there. If we need anything like stakes and chains to keep people away from the tanks, just post it on here and I will pick it up when I get back from Venice.
