Ultimate Ford 42nd National Mustang Convention Bay of Plenty 22-25 October 2021

 
   
  Covid Update - 17th September - Cancelled due to Covid-19
 
Hello all Convention attendees
 

It is with great regret that we must cancel the 2021 Ultimate Ford National Mustang Convention.
 

We had been closely following the status of Covid 19 and the Levels of restriction that we find ourselves in. We have been regularly working possible scenarios and the likelihood that everyone will get to a Level that will enable the Convention to go ahead.


While we have put a lot of time, effort, and money into convention preparation, we are also mindful that those planning to attend need certainty with their travel arrangements, especially those looking to travel up and cross the ditch from the South Island. Such travel is no small undertaking and we have been heartened by the very large number of registrations that we have received from all clubs.


It is only fair that we respect that commitment and give as much notice as possible of any cancellation to allow for changes to be made to travel plans. Following recent announcements including the Prime Ministers announcement yesterday giving details of how the government anticipates progression down to Level 1, and without knowing exactly how the situation will evolve, it appears very unlikely that we will be in a position to enable the Convention to go ahead. Consequently, we have made the hard decision and cancelled this year’s convention. Doing so today means that we will be refunding all registration and shirt moneys in full.
 

We are very appreciative of the huge support that all clubs have shown us leading up to this year’s event. We believe that we had a programme in place that was worthy of that support.
 

We now start the task of cancelling everything and starting the refund process. Please bear with us as we work though this process; refunds will be processed in batches.


This is not the outcome that we wanted and while we apologise for inconvenience it is a decision that has been forced upon us. A postponement was not possible due to the limited number of venue options available and their being booked 2-3 years ahead. We now hope that Taranaki does not have to go through the same anguish as we wish them well for 2022.
 

Again, we thank you for your support, we have been humbled by the generosity of spirit shown to us.

Kind Regards

Grant Robb
2021 Convention Convenor

  Covid Update - 18th August
  Hi All,

We have been considering the possibility of Covid raising its head again at some stage during our preparations and have been planning accordingly. At this stage, we are just holding tight until we see what way it will jump. In a week's time it may have been a storm in a teacup. The time for making big decisions is not upon us yet and if we do get to that point, we will be quick to communicate with you all.

For now it is all business as usual and we are looking forward to seeing you at Labour Weekend.

Cheers,
Margaret

  Mount Safari - Partners Programme
  Following on from CMOC’s great Partners Programme last year, we are proud to offer our Mount Safari as an alternative to trailing your other half around the cars at the car show!

We have put together a great day, leaving BayPark at 10.15am on the Saturday via buses, and we will be taking in the delights of the Mount, some of which are listed below to whet your appetite:

There are a number of walks and if you choose to do anyone of these, wear decent enough walking shoes, and only one of them requires a real degree of fitness. More details on the day.
Cafes and shops abound – you can do plenty of damage to the credit card here! More information on the day, including a great discount at Pizza Library Company.
Kewpie Harbour Tours have offered us a 15% discount. Visit Kewpie Cruises to book, but do use the discount code MUSTANG.
V8 Trikes are also keen to see you. Go to V8 Trike Tours | V8 Trike Tour Packages to choose one of their adrenalin filled tours. Discount code is MUSTANG to unlock a 20% discount. Note – you hire the whole bike so teaming up with others to share the cost is the way to go.
Mount Hot Pools have also offered us a couple of deals. More about these on the day, but if you want to visit the pools, remember to bring your togs.
We will also be Meeting New Mates at the Mount, and there will be a Scavenger Hunt. We do need numbers so we can have the right number of buses. There is no cost other than what you choose to spend on the activities or in the shops and cafes. Please reply to bopmocconvention@gmail.com to let us know if you would like to spend this day with us.

  Here is the poster for the free car show at Bay Park, please share it around, print it and put it up in friendly retailers windows, give it to your local schools and share, share, share it on social media.  PDF version here (600k)  or the JPG version (147K)
