Heavy rain was not in the plans but it did add to the atmosphere for a cruise up the East Coast for the annual general meeting of the NZ Ford Performance Vehicles and Tickford Owners Club.

About 65 people in 32 Fords drove to the Te Puka Tavern in Tokomaru Bay.

FPV and Tickford Owners Club Eastland chairman Trevor Baty said the hospitality at Te Puka Tavern made the trip very worthwhile.

The whole weekend was full of events for club members, and Mr Baty said hospitality at West Inn Tavern was also fantastic and where they held the club events on the Friday and Saturday nights.

“The Museum of Technology was very popular on Sunday. We had to almost drag people out of there to get to our final venue for end-of-festivities lunch at the Jolly Stockman, which was also awesome.

“I would like to thank all of our local sponsors, including The Gisborne Herald, for covering and supporting this year’s AGM.

“Information on the club is on our FPV and Tickford Owners Club Inc Facebook page.”
