August 2012 @ Tollymore was a wonderful success and ive been contacted by the park ranger with permission and anticipation for us to have our annual owners day there again andlets go for the record of the amount of cars in attendance!



Location - Tollymore Forest Park, Bryansford Road, Newcastle, Co Down, Northern Ireland, BT33 0PW
Date - Sunday the 1st of September 2013
Time - 1200 hours to 1630 hours

Costs for entry into Forrest - Car £4, pedestrian £2, child 50p

A beautiful part of the country both for a walk and a lovely drive to, rated as one of the top 20 beauty spots in the united Kingdom. Ideal if you want to bring the kids or have a lovely picnic etc.

Tollymore features many follies including a barn dressed up to look like a church, stone cones atop gate piers and gothic-style gate arches and some great routes to cycle around and is both a caravan site and pet friendly so bring the dog!

Location has proved great with both northern and southern owners who wish to joined us on the day, if coming from the South traveling via Newry is the most efficient route.

Think his will be a great end to the summer and give everyone plenty of time to get sorted. There is plenty to do for the kids in Newcastle as well, and there's the shop, cafe etc as well so plenty to do, also you can bring a BBQ if you really want along with the dogs etc.

I have gained full approval from the Forrest Ranger and the DRD for the event, and working through Richard Kernohan, the Recreation Forester of the area so everything is sorted.

So folks, literally the last of summer 2013 so everyone is home from holidays this time and no other significant classic car shows on that weekend.

IMPORTANT NOTE

Yet again this is a static event on a public car park at a tourist spot, this is NOT a wheel spinning season or play your music as loud as possible.

Everyone of every age mate, from teenagers in first cars to retired folks in their restoration projects to people in their dailies.

Reminder that Sunday 1st September is the MG Rover owners and family day (started as the 75 & ZT owners day) at Tollymore Forrest Park from after midday until half 4.

As usual any car is welcome, any club is welcome and kids and family's are always encouraged at the Forrest! As always we would especially love to extend the invite to cars of the Rover heritage link such as Austin, Triumph, Land Rover, Jaguar and Mini etc.

Ranger has agreed to let us have the same space again at the bbq area for all out cars so it will be another great day out.

Full details can be found here, everyone welcome!

Hi guys
Just a quick note to say thanks for the warm welcome today in Tollymore. I brought my mother along (had ideas of loosing her in the maze but hey ho) and she thoroughly enjoyed her day as did I. It was great to meet some of the guys in the flesh I have been corresponding with here.
I might have lowered the tone a bit but what else would you expect from an F'er!

Thanks again and I hope to catch up with you soon

Ali
