The Itinerary on 18 November 2006

Please note the following changes from the previous details that were given:

a. The timings have been pushed back so we no longer need to leave Petronas at 2nd link at 0415 hrs. However, please remember that 18 November 2006 is the 1st day of the school holidays so the traffic at the 2nd link is likely to build up quite early. As such, please allow yourself enough time to reach Petronas 2nd link by 0500 hrs.

b. Due to the lack of a car park of sufficient size to accomodate 170 cars, Honda Malaysia has rented car park space at A.Farmosa resort nearby to the Honda plant for us visitors. Buses have been chartered to ferry us to and from A.Farmosa to the plant.

c. Lunch has been catered at A.Farmosa by Honda Malaysia.

The Convoy
We will be travelling in convoy(s) from:

a. Petronas station at 2nd Link to R&R Restoran Jejantas Ayer Keroh;
b. R&R Restoran Jejantas Ayer Keroh to the assembly point at A.Farmosa at Alor Gajah

with toilet breaks in between at R&R Yong Peng / R&R Pagoh on a "need to stop" basis.

For those who do not wish to join the convoy for (a), please ensure that you rejoin the convoy at R&R Restoran Jejantas Ayer Keroh by 0915 hrs. Again, latecomers will be left behind as we cannot wait and risk being late.

Please note that the convoy is compulsory for (b) as we have to arrive at the assembly point together.

For the (a) convoy, there are likely to be three (3) separate convoys as it is difficult for 20+ cars to travel in 1 convoy. Details of these 3 convoys are being worked out.

Each car will be issued with a yellow numbered sticker. Please stick this sticker on your rear windscreen at the top right hand corner for easy identificaton. Please leave this sticker on your car for the duration of the trip.

We strongly encourage all participants to bring a walkie talkie so that you can keep in contact with other members of your convoy easily. If you need to call the HPVOC at any time during the trip, please call +6017-2738389.

If you do not know where is the Petronas station at 2nd link or if you have never driven in Malaysia at night before, please let us know before the trip.

6. For the tour, participants will be grouped into 7 groups of 40 persons each. As we have 47 persons (as of now), SHC members will be split into 2 groups of 40 and 7 respectively.

Pre-departure Briefing

The HPVOC will be organising a pre-departure briefing at the SHC meetup on Friday 3 November 2006. 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.

Please also bring your walkies to test if you are unsure if your walkie is compatible with ours.

HPVOC will also be bringing some white Malaysian immigration forms for those who require them. Please approach us if you need forms (whilst stocks last).

Other matters

1. Please carry out all necessary pre-long distance journey checks on your cars before departure. Eg. servicing, check fluid levels, tyre pressure, spare tyre, bulbs etc. If your car breaks down during the trip, we may not be able to wait for you as we have a tight schedule to adhere to.

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

3. Please ensure that you bring sufficient ringgit for road toll, petrol, meals and other incidentals. For road toll, you will need an estimated RM90 and S$7.40 in your Cashcard (in total).

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

5. We suggest that you pack some snacks and drinks in your car. While we plan to stop for breakfast for Jejantas and while lunch will be provided at A.Farmosa, you may like to have some snacks and drinks in your car, just in case.

6. All participants are expected to wear their club shirts to the visit. 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! If you do not have a SHC shirt, the dress code is collared T-shirt, preferably WHITE and LONG PANTS. No shorts, singlets, round neck Tees are allowed. For shoes, please wear either leather shoes or sports shoes. No sandals, slippers, high-heels or
open design shoes (like the ladies like to wear). For our safety.

7. Walkie Talkies. Please bring your walkies (with spare batteries). If you don't have a walkie, please try to borrow one or buy one. Popular models are the Motorola T5720 or T5500. If in doubt if your walkie can is compatible with ours, please post to ask and I'm sure you'll get a reply.

8. Please remember to keep your car doors locked at all times when driving.

9. Bring your spare key / alarm remote.

10. Please ensure that your road tax disc is valid.

11. Please carry your car insurance documents in your car.

12. Please exercise maximum courtesy to our host Honda Malaysia during this event. As can be seen, Honda Malaysia CEO Mizuno-san has spared no effort to make our visit comfortable. Therefore, please refrain from making any complaints or bad comments during the visit. It is common courtesy and good manners not to criticise the host. Please also do likewise for the many Malaysia Honda clubs which we will be meeting.

13. Upon arrival, you will be required to register for the visit based on the Pre-Registration list which has been submitted. You will then be given a badge and a goodie bag. This badge is your "ticket" to the Honda plant. Only those with badges will be allowed to board the buses and the guards will also check the badges before allowing entry into the factory. Hence, I would suggest you put on your badge once you get it.

14. Please note that gate crashers will not be allowed to register and hence will be denied entry to the plant. The reason is simple: HM has bought insurance for the list of participants which has been submitted to them. If you are not in the list, you are not covered and cannot enter.

15. By going for this trip, you and your passengers unconditionally agree that this trip is undertaken at your own risk entirely and neither SHC, HPVOC nor any of the SHC administrators or moderators shall be held responsible for any injury or death of any person or any loss or damage to your personal belongings/cars howsoever arising or caused.

16. As an added security, you can choose to lock your belongings such as mobile phones, cameras, camcorders etc in the SHC showcars which will be monitored by full time security (we are told). Alternatively you can lock them in your own cars. It is up to you. Please approach HPVOC during lunchtime if you wish to lock your belongings in the showcars. Please write your names on the stickers which will be provided by HPVOC and stick them on your personal belongings for easy identification later on. Please note Point 15 above.

17. Upon arrival at the assembly point in Alor Gajah, the organising committee will distribute numbered car stickers for each of our cars. These stickers are to assist the parking wardens when we drive into the A.Farmosa carpark. Please stick the sticker at the right side of your rear windscreen.

18. Please display your SHC decal proudly on your car! :D

19. Honda Malaysia requires all participants to complete and sign an indemnity form. This form is to be given to Honda Malaysia upon registration at A.Farmosa. Those with incomplete or unsigned forms will not be allowed to board the bus to the Honda plant. Please approach HPVOC at 2nd link Petronas / R&R Restoran Jejantas Ayer Keroh to collect your forms and fill them up before we arrive at A.Farmosa. This is important.
