Hyia Guys :D

The Longwall Beefeater Pub at 11.30-11.45am

In conjunction with the North West MINI's, there is a factory tour arranged for TUESDAY 19th OCTOBER at 1.45pm.
This thread is now a link on the North West Mini thread, so if any of the North West attendee's need any info, Simon may post it there aswell as on here. This thread is now a STICKY - so keep checking back for more details. :D Also it's now on the MINI2 calendar (you can set a reminder if needed ;))

Visiting Production Areas

The tours will start in the Plant Oxford info centre with the main focus of the tour being the 'Body in White' (welding) and Assembly Halls. For health and safety reasons visitors will go into the paint facility, but instead will be introduced to key highlights of this process in the info centre.

Important Information

BMW regrets that children under the age of 14 are not allowed on site for health and safety reasons and people with pacemakers will be unable to join a tour, as robots can intefere with the pacemaker. The tour lasts approx. 2 1/2 hours.

The charges are as follows:-
£3 - for individuals
£2 - students / OAP's

(A £1 from every visitor goes to Whizz Kidz. The remaining balance will enable BMW
to improve the plant tour experience for all visitors as well as cover administration costs).
But, obviously, I think we could do better than a £1 donation to Whizz Kidz?????? So if anyone is feeling particularly flush, donations are accepted on the day. R.e. collecting money's, I think it would be easier if you gave your £3's to one person and then saves confusion at the payment point in the information centre :)

Pub Grub Details
The Pub of choice is now THE LONGWALL - BEEFEATER.
There is a table booked for 30 people at 12pm.
This is also the meeting place - see above.

Below is an attachment for stickers for your rear / windows. If anyone is interested, just save attachment then edit in Paint and add your own name.

Those of you who have reserved a place and confirmed it with a PM, your name will appear on this list of attendees below :D.

I have started a reserve list - but I am limiting reserve spaces to 3. People on the reserve list will be notified if a space has arisen by 15/10/04. So if anyone needs to drop out please let me know by this date also.

Room for 2 more?

We did a factory tour last week :D but the prospect of a tour with a MINI2 group is too tempting :p :p
