LIONS GATE MODEL A FORD CLUB TOUR AND EVENT SCHEDULE 2019
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Please contact Gerry Allen 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 requirements for advance registration. Sign-up sheets are available at monthly meetings.

If you cannot attend a meeting to sign up, please advise Gerry 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 Gerry or the tour coordinator as soon as possible so we can avoid delays
.

For your reference, and as a reminder for those who have signed up, sign-up lists are posted in the members area.
Your consideration is appreciated.

Please review and follow the Tour Rules and Guidelines below to ensure we all have an enjoyable time on the tour.
