Friday 15th May 10 members departed for a weekend in the world famous Art Deco City of Napier.  Friday night was hospitality with hosts and a briefing of the programme for the next two days.

 Saturday morning saw us assembled at the Art Deco Information Office. We were shown a film on the history of Napier with specific emphases on the earthquake that changed the landscape for ever. We were then taken on a walking tour of the city escorted by a professional guide. This was very enlightening, educational and entertaining.


After the walking tour we were taken on a wider area tour of the city courtesy of the Ford Model A car club. In a fleet of Model As, in convoy, we toured the city in style giving the royal wave to all those who looked wondering who we were! We experienced a great tour taking in the sights, Mission Vineyards and ending at a great restaurant at about 2pm.  After an extended late lunch, we were returned to city centre in the Model As where our hosts duly picked us up and returned us to their homes.

That evening we were treated to soup “n” roll at the homes of various Napier members


Sunday morning we assembled at the Chocolate factory. This is a great complex with a museum, chocolate shop, souvenir shop and a café. At 10.30am we were given our instructions! A car rally was to commence. This rally was principally a rural excursion and again very informative. After several hours we arrived at an African themed restaurant for lunch.  Unfortunately no one from Wellington won the rally but there was time for speeches and an opportunity to formally thank the Napier club for a splendid weekend. After another extended lunch we were given free time with our hosts.


Monday morning we all departed Napier and returned to Wellington. The weekend was really very successful and we hope that more members will be able to participate in future domestic exchanges.
