Cruise to the Prom 2020
May 24, 2020 @ 09:30 - 16:00£7.84 – £20.96
Cruise to the Prom is a one day show where all VW’s are welcome to join us on the Beach Lawns at Weston Super Mare. Entry to the event is still just £5 per vehicle (VW’s only) with proceeds going to local charity BARB who run the local area search and rescue hovercraft and assist with other beach emergencies along the bay. The lawns will open from 9:30am where we will have club displays, merchandise, hot & cold drinks from O’s Coffee and delicious food from Charcoal and you can remain parked all day until 4pm. Our charity benefactor BARB will also be there with the hovercraft offering beach and sea safety advice**. You may either come straight to the lawns or join the official cruise to the event and rock up with loads of VW’s in convoy, details of which are below. We are delighted to announce that Simply Surf Bus are joining us as lead sponsor again in 2020.
The Cruise on Sunday morning will leave from Sanders Garden Centre at approx. 9:30am. Arrive from 8am onwards where you will find our marshals ready to park you up until The Cruise is ready to leave. The Cruise will be led by 2019’s Spirit of Clive Award winner Joe Chadney. The address for the Garden Centre is Bristol Road, Burnham-on-Sea, Highbridge, TA9 4HJ. If you are camping with us then we will be running a convoy out to Sanders at approx 9am from the camp site (see details below). Remember that the Cruise is optional – if you would prefer to go directly to the Lawns then please do so!
Pride of Ownership
CTTP has always been about the love or dream of owning a VW and as an event we recognise this with our Pride of Ownership awards – these won’t necessarily go to the shiniest, most expensive VW’s on the field or those which are winning at every show, our awards are all about the love, passion and the effort people have put in to and have for their Dubs. Our categories will be:
- Favourite Air Cooled (x5)
- Favourite Water Cooled (x5)
- Joe Bloggs Award (x5)
- Mini Dubber Award (x5)
- Sponsors Choice Awards
- Furthest Travelled
- Best Club Stand
- Best in Show
- Spirit of Clive Award
Each winner will receive a hand crafted trophy. Additionally, the winner of the Spirit of Clive Award will also being the focus vehicle for the 2021 logo and sticker along with lead the 2021 Cruise.
- All awards – vehicles must be a VW, parked on the lawns and still be present at 2:30pm for the presentation
- Best Club Stand – clubs must be pre-registered with us and be at the Lawns by 9:15am
- Spirit of Clive Award – a VW which has your own blood, sweat, tears and ideas put into it. Clive was all about making something different just because it could be done, not to follow the crowd or care what anyone else thought. We will be looking for the unique, the individual and the creative. Build evidence / history will be appreciated but not fundamental.
Pride of Ownership winners will be announced at the events gazebo at 2:30pm.
Camping has been arranged for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights at a new venue near Axbridge along the A38, just 8 minutes drive from the Cruise meeting point at Sanders. Camping is £15* per night per vehicle with a maximum of six people per vehicle, giving you a long bank holiday weekend for just £45* if you want it! You will be able to leave awnings and tents up during the day and venture off-site safe in the knowledge that we will have stewards on-site throughout the weekend. Camping this year is back to basics with the only amenities being a toilet block and mains water points, however there are three very good pubs within walking distance and a BP garage just across the road with a small convenience store. Fire pits and BBQ’s are welcome providing they are off the ground and there is a noise curfew of 11pm due to licensing. The address for the camping is Days Field, Old Church Road, Lower Weare, Axbridge, Somerset, BS26 2JB.
