Register for the IVVCC 43rd Powerscourt Estate Picnic
We are happy to announce that we plan to hold our Powerscourt event this year, Government/Covid-19 restrictions allowing. This is the 43rd occasion that we have been privileged to accept the hospitality of the management of Powerscourt Estate to be able to hold our event in their wonderful grounds. The walled garden area is again the venue for the 2020 event and, as space is being limited, entries will be accepted from the first 100 entries received on or before by Friday, 7th August 2020. The preferred entry method will be on the www.ivvcc.ie online entry system for this event, or alternatively a bank transfer may be made but the form also must be forwarded either by email to [email protected] or in the post by 7th August. However, if necessary, the entry form can be posted as outlined on the entry form, bearing in mind the event is limited to the first 100 entries received. There will not be any facilities for registration in Powerscourt on the day.
PLEASE NOTE: We will be posting out car entry numbers this year in the week prior to the event and it is important that this number is displayed on your car to be allowed into the walled area. Any family members planning to join the entrant must enter with the car or subsequently must park in the general public parking area, thus entering through the Powerscourt House reception area, paying the appropriate Powerscourt Gardens entry fee.
It is important that all cars are in place between 11.30am and 12.30pm as the entrance gate to the walled garden will be closed at that time and no access will be allowed after 13.00pm. Members of the public will not be allowed to enter the walled area and must come through Powerscourt House.
Cars will be directed to park a minimum of 2 metres apart and must display their entry number on the car throughout the day. PLEASE NOTE: Dogs are NOT permitted in the walled garden or any of the Powerscourt inner gardens. BBQs are also not allowed. Entrants have access to the gardens from the walled area and you should bring your IVVCC membership card as identification to access the house area.
In order to facilitate an orderly display of our historic vehicles, it is important that all entrants adhere to Marshals’ requests when parking the cars.
Cars should not exit the area before 17.30pm unless under Marshal’s escort.
Voting slips will be provided so that entrants may choose their favourite cars in the following categories:
Pre-War Open Tourer
Post War Open Tourer
The Jim Fitzgerald Perpetual Trophy for the Best Ford on the day
The Slazenger Powerscourt Perpetual Trophy will be chosen by a representative of the Slazenger family for their favourite vehicle on the day.
We encourage people to dress in an outfit appropriate to the era of their car. There will be a special prize, sponsored by Dublin Crystal, for the Best Dressed Person or Couple in Period Costume.
