LIONS GATE MODEL A FORD CLUB TOUR SCHEDULE 2017
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Please contact Bill Day if you have any ideas for tours. He will gladly help to organize the tours but needs your ideas.
 
Once decided upon, events and tours will go ahead unless there is a technical requirement – space, management, or facilities. Often, group reservations for admissions or lunch must be made in advance and are dependent on the number of attendees. In this circumstance, there will be clear, enforced requirements for advance registration. Sign-up sheets are available at monthly meetings.
If you cannot attend a meeting to sign up, please advise the tour coordinator if you intend to join the tour.
If you must cancel for any reason, or will be late in arriving at the designated meeting place, please inform the tour coordinator as soon as possible so we can avoid delays
.
Your consideration is appreciated.

Lions Gate Model A Club Tour Etiquette

1. Wear your name tag!

2. Please call or email Tour organizer with a few days notice if you are planning to attend or cancel a tour date. This will allow us to have an appropriate number of map/direction packages available for each car; we can notify any sponsors of how many cars to expect; we can make accurate reservations at a restaurant, and we can call you if the tour is cancelled.

3. The tours will be “rain or shine”. In the case of poor “Model A” weather bring your modern car to join in the socialization and fun!

4. Each tour will be discussed in more detail at the club meeting before the event and these details will be posted on the club website.

5. If you don’t have a Model A on the road – bring your modern car and join in the fun!

6. Bring family and/or friends – fill the empty seats, even the rumble seat!

7. Let’s promote our club, our cars, and join in the fun!

8. It is preferable that all members participating in tours meet the group at the intended start point at the assigned time. Instructions and tour packages will be given out at this point.
