We've talked about a weekend in Akaroa for ages so Mel has stapled our hands to the desk and our feet to the floor, called us on our bluff and declared a date!!!

The idea is for a social, laid back time with some driving in between all the coffee drinking, croissant consuming and chatting.  Activities are planned so that you can join us from Christchurch on the day if you wish.

Updated info! (10th June, 2010)

A weekend away with your navigator and classic for a sunny break, which is on order.

This weekend can be as long or as short as you wish to make it.  Some participants are heading over to Akaroa on Friday 30th. Please call Mel or Gill for the venue for an evening meal on Friday.

Starting at 1pm Saturday we are going for a run to visit a bay or two so plenty of time to zap over the hills to join us.  We will dine together on Saturday night from about 6pm.  Its not too far to walk back to your lodgings.

No rush Sunday morning so we will meet at 12pm-ish for fish and chips on the waterfront, 59 Beach Road.  Following the food we will take a scenic tour back toward Christchurch with a stop at the Wheatsheaf at Teddington for a coffee and cake.

Again you are invited to join us in Akaroa for lunch and the run back to Christchurch but if you or the car can’t manage all that, why not join us at Teddington.

We will be a updating this information closer to the time.  So do join us for the weekend or just a few hours.
