The 20th Regis Classic Tour – “The Ladies Go Dutch II – or perhaps they go Double Dutch”
Generously sponsored for the tenth year by William Frosts of Frosts Ltd www.frosts4cars.co.uk
The ladies of Bognor Regis Motor Club are very pleased to announce that they have exceeded their expectation to raise Half a Million Pounds from the 19 years of Regis Classic Tours. The final total for 2016 was £31,980.74, this figure will increase considerably once Gift Aid is calculated by Against Breast Cancer & Orchid – Fighting Male Cancer who have each received 50% of the proceeds. The total raised for cancer charities in 19 years smashed the half million figure and now exceeds £517,000.00! Thanks to everyone who has made this possible. Photographs of the 19th Regis Classic Tour are available from Nigel Eddleston at www.edpphoto.com, official photographers for The Regis Classic Tour.
Next Year’s Grand Finale!
The 20th Regis Classic Tour – 31st March, 1st & 2nd April 2017
All good things have to come to an end and the Ladies have decided that the 20th and the very final Regis Classic Tour will be held in Rotterdam, Holland as a part repeat of the 10th Tour. The majority of the venues and route will have to change after 10 years. We have booked the fabulous 4* Valk Hotel ARA in Zwijndrecht and an overspill at the Ridderkirk Hotel with transport for those staying at Ridderkirk. (This is about 15 minutes away). All evening meals will be at the Hotel ARA for everyone.
This will be over the weekend of Friday 31st March, Saturday 1st & Sunday April 2nd 2017 (no it is not an April Fool)! The entry opened to previous entrants of any of the other 19 Regis Classic Tours and Hotel ARA was filled in 3 days! The overspill rooms at Ridderkirk are now also reserved.
From 1st May the reserve entry will be open to new participants. As the entry has filled so quickly it is very possible there will be several cancellations before next March, so we will run a reserve list and this will again be in strict rotation on “a first come first served” basis for anyone wishing to join in. Entry fees are still being finalised and will be based on Friday & Saturday night at the hotels on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis.
The tour will start on Saturday morning with a proposed visit to Schoonhoven’s Silver Museum plus coffee and apple cake at Hotel Belevedere (where the 10th Tour finished). Koetshuis de Haar near Utrecht will host a visit and lunch on Saturday and the afternoon visit is planned for Biesbosch Museum Eiland Werkedam before returning to the hotels. Sunday morning re-start is normally a little later and we are working on a return visit to Gouda with parking in the market square with a chance to sample local delicacies before proceeding to the new famous Louwman Museum at Den Haag on Sunday will host our final buffet lunch to be taken in the Grand Hall. All meals and entry fees to places of interest will be included in the tour entry fee.
There will be an optional supplement for Sunday night to include a coach trip and supper out to a local but very special restaurant, alternatively guests can just enjoy dinner at the hotel and relax. As specified this is a totally non-competitive touring event.
All funds again will be donated to Against Breast Cancer & Orchid – Fighting Male Cancer with the main aim as a celebration anniversary event for the fun, fundraising and friendship that have taken part over the past 20 years.
