In the meantime, if any of the above 50 persons do not wish to or cannot make it for the trip, please drop me a PM ASAP so that I can allocate your space to the next person on the list.

For the 50 persons in the above list, please note that you will have to pay TOVA RM25 for each car . I will be collecting the money from each of you first and will make payment to TOVA on your behalf before the trip. Please note that there will be no refund if you decide not to go after you have made payment. If you do not pay by the cut off date (ample notice will be given), I will assume that you are no longer interested and will allocate your space to the next person on the list.

As there is a SHC meetup tomorrow (Friday 6 October 2006), I will like to take this opportunity to collect the RM25 from whoever is coming for the meetup. If you cannot make it to the meetup, there will be another collection date (date to be fixed). Please pay me either RM25 or S$11 in exact change.

The Convoy and Timings

1. With 28 cars for the convoy, we will need to split up the convoy into smaller groups. The HPVOC will work out the convoy arrangements. For those who want to travel ahead of the convoy or do not wish to join the convoy, we will fix a meeting point for all to gather before we proceed to the assembly point to meet TOVA.

2. We have to be at the assembly point at the Honda plant before 8:30am. This means that we will have to leave Singapore VERY EARLY. Bear in mind that in convoy, travel times may be slower than if you travel alone and also bear in mind that it's the 1st day of the school holidays so we must leave early to beat the 2nd link jam. So please be on time. The TOVA will not entertain late comers, and neither will the HPVOC.

3. Our meet up point is likely to be the Petronas station after the 2nd link customs. The HPVOC will inform you of the time to meet and the time we will move off.

4. HPVOC will work out all other details of the convoy.

5. The Honda plant is accessible via the Alor Gajah exit of the NS highway (after Ayer Keroh / Malacca). From the Alor Gajah exit, it's a 15 min drive to the assembly point. HPVOC will obtain the actual route details prior to departure.

Honda Plant - FAQs

1. Proper attire. No shorts, singlets, slippers, etc. For ladies, no miniskirt, sleeveless blouse etc. Also no high-heels for ladies. All for courtesy and for safety.

2. No cameras of any kind is allowed and no photo taking is allowed inside the factory floor

3. No handphones are allowed inside the factory floor. The HPVOC will look into collecting all handphones before the start of the tour and then return to them to you after the tour ends. Alternatively, you can leave your handphones locked in your car (safe?).

4. No children.

5. You MUST drive a HONDA to the event. No non-Hondas allowed. Please inform the HPVOC of your Honda model, colour and registration number when you make payment of the fee of RM25 or S$11.

6. TOVA has requested that we select FIVE cars to be designated as 'show cars' to participate in a special 'presentation parade' for the Honda Malaysia senior management, with at least one car from the HPVOC. These cars will get special parking arrangements at the Honda plant. The HPVOC will work out the details.

Pre-departure Briefing

The HPVOC will be organising a pre-departure briefing before the actual date. Please make an effort to attend the briefing so that you can meet the people in your convoy and raise any final questions you may have. There must be a common understanding of the dos and don't so that the trip will be a safe and enjoyable one.

Other matters

1. Please carry out all necessary pre-long distance journey checks on your cars before departure. Eg. Fluid levels, tyre pressure, spare tyre etc.

2. Please ensure that you and your passengers have sufficient passport validity.

3. Please ensure that you bring sufficient ringgit for toll, petrol, meals and other incidentals.

4. Please bring your Touch N Go card for Malaysian toll if you have one.

5. We suggest that you pack breakfast / snacks to eat along the way. If time permits, we will stop for breakfast.

6. Please wear your SHC crew shirt / polo-shirt / sub-group polo-shirt if you have one. Remember, we are the only group going from Singapore and we represent SHC!

7. Walkie Talkies. I cannot emphasise the importance of walkie talkies since we are traveling in convoy. Please bring your walkies (with batteries of course). If you don?t have a walkie, please try to borrow one or buy one. It will save you lots in handphone bills and will also keep you awake while driving (I?m serious). We'll be using Motorola walkies, model 5720 or 5500, please check that your walkie is compatible with these models.

8. In the event that you lose the convoy and/or are out of range for your walkie, please call me on my Malaysian mobile at +6017 2738389. But please try to stay within range of the convoy as valuable time will be lost if we need to stop / backtrack to pick up a lost member.

Please stay tuned for more updates.

Regards

Your friendly HPVOC

We will plan for at least one convoy to move at "stocked speed" so don't worry. We will have a "sweeper car" as well. As I mentioned we will fix a final meeting point for all to gather before moving to the assembly point so those who move at "mod speed" and arrive there first can nap or drink coffee or whatever. :lol:

It's great to see you in the list. Would you like to be our "Official Photographer" for this trip? I can't think of a more suitable candidate. :D

Thanks to those who came to the meetup and made payment. The response has been very encouraging. The HPVOC will update the list of those who have paid shortly.

For those in the list who have not paid, please make arrangements to transfer S$11 per car to the following bank account by Monday 9 October 2006:

Account type: POSB Savings
Account no.: 048-35942-6

Please indicate your nick when you make the transfer so that we can identify you easily.

Please drop me a PM after you have transferred the funds so I can confirm receipt. If I do not receive the funds by Monday 9 October 2006, the HPVOC will call you at the number which you have provided in the list to find out if you are still interested. If we are unable to reach you or if we do not receive payment by Wednesday 11 October 2006, we will take it that you are no longer interested and re-allocate your space. Please understand that we are working within very tight deadlines and we have to confirm our list with TOVA by the end of next week.

Thank you.
