There's big news about the CX, XM and Xantia Rally
. Following the CX Section Committee Meeting that was held at the DSM, we are pleased to announce details for the Rally (6/7/8th September)
. Please see below for the Rally Advert...
Once again we are proud to announce that both entry and camping all weekend will be free!
This free entry is not just to CCC Members either - it's extended to non-members too. We had a cracking turnout last year of over 150 cars which included 22 CXs, 30 XMs and 25 Xantias however we know you can do better...! If possible we'd like to see more than 170 cars over the weekend - it's up to you of course however don't let us down...! It is worth mentioning that a donation bucket will be present for donations at your discretion - this is to help us cover the £300 cost to just hire the site for the weekend.
To kick the rally off on Friday Evening
the famous Fish and Chip van
will be making an appearance at around 7:00pm to 7:30pm. Once everyone has enjoyed their fish supper then many folk normally have a good natter about all things Citroen related, whilst others break out the jars of infamous pickled eggs and enjoy an alcoholic beverage (or ten...) of their choice...
On Saturday & Sunday Morning
, Buffett Breakfasts
will be available at the Shoulder of Mutton Pub
from 8am to 10am, as per last year.
we will depart for our convoy drive
which is kindly going to be organised by Jim Eastment. Jim is organising a scenic route through the lanes and backroads to the Chinnor and Princes Risborough Railway
and upon arrival we will be able to go on a train ride along the line that runs over a 3 ½ mile stretch along the foot of the Chiltern Hills running parallel to the Icknield Way, passing through attractive countryside with some outstanding views across the Vale of Whiteleaf.
On Saturday Evening
we will pop down to the Shoulder of Mutton Pub
for the Evening Buffet Meal.
The cost will be £15 per head and it is an all you can eat buffet arrangement. Refreshments
on the Saturday and Sunday Afternoons will be available in the clubhouse kitchen that include Filled Rolls, Tea, Coffee and Soft Drinks.
There will be trophies
for Best CX
present, with rosettes too for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Also there is of course the Roger Bradford “Roger’s Choice”
Trophy (the car he would exclaim "Good God"
at if he had seen it...) and the Eileen Stearnes Trophy
(the car that has been improved the most and deserves special recognition...)
As well as the prize giving on the Sunday Afternoon, there will of course be the raffle....and of course the brilliant atmosphere that is only the CX, XM and Xantia Rally!
Don't forget those pickled eggs...
See you there!
