Our Annual Show 2021 (Save the Date!)
2021 will mark 30 years since the first Capri show was held in Alford, Aberdeenshire, with many more held in the period between 1991 and today. I'm very excited to advise that we have now booked the venue to mark this occasion and as always that venue is the Grampian Transport Museum in Alford, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. We are planning a run on Saturday 28th of August around the North East of Scotland, and a meeting at the Museum on Sunday the 29th. Exact details are still to be firmed up which will be shared below as they are available. Please also note you can subscribe to our mailing list from the main page of this site, to be emailed the latest show updates.
Saturday 28th August
On the Saturday we are looking to organise run out in the cars somewhere across North East Scotland. There are 3 suggested routes and a decision will be taken nearer the time. All start and finish from Alford. Once a decision is make on which route will be used, full details will be shared.
Route 1 - Moray Coast , start at Alford, an hours driving outbound, stop for light refreshments somewhere like the Cullen Bay Hotel or Christie’s at Fochabers for an hour or so, an hour back via Rothes, Dufftown, Lumsden and back to Alford.
Route 2 - Whisky “Tour” without any whisky..... Leave Alford and head up through Lumsden to Dufftown, Craugellachie passing several distilleries on the way ending up at Ballindalloch Castle grounds, there are plenty of photo opportunities along the route and in the castle grounds, there is also a tea room at the castle. Head back in to Alford via the failed Cockbridge to Tomintoul, road and through Strathdon.
Route 3 - Head south from Alford, through Banchory and over the Cairn O Mount, Edsel, Brechin and Montrose stopping at the Charleton Fruit Farm for refreshments, there is plenty parking there and several photo opportunities on this route too.
Sunday 29th August
A gathering of Ford Capri’s at the Grampian Transport Museum, Alford, Aberdeenshire. Historic home of the club show since the first show in 1991.
To mark this occasion we intend to park the cars in 30 formation and capture an aerial photo of this. The first 30 cars will be used for this.
Booking for the Sunday will be done via the Grampian Transport Museum and not via the Club as has been the case in the past. Detail on how to do this will be shared once entries are being taken.
As a club we attend a number of shows throughout the show season as a club. We also host our own annual show which has been running since 1991!
Please be advised that many of the shows we attend require advance booking so please let us know if you wish to attend any. Check the club magazine and Forum for further details on each show as they become available.
