Spring is upon us so join the club and have fun this year!!!

3p Club and Goodfellas Club.

As a ‘petrol head’ and enthusiastic Porsche fan it suddenly occurred to Tim, when a wonderful pale blue Porsche ‘Speedster’ parked outside our Bulls Head pub, that he should form a ‘special club’ here at the Bulls Head in Mobberley. The club is known as the 3p Club and in its first year gained 18 members!!

3p stands for ‘Pub, Porsche and Pint’ Club and to be a member of this ‘elite’ and fun club all you have to do is…………

A) Own a Porsche or borrow or hire one regularly!!
B) Park your proud Porsche (as seen in the photos) outside the Bulls Head
C) Take a photo of your proud Porsche and email the photo to Tim at our email address info@thebullsheadpub.com with your name and the name of your Porsche (if you have one). It’s as simple as that!!

Your Porsche picture will then be proudly presented on the website and when Tim has 50 Porsche members he will be drawing a lucky winner for an excellent ‘Drive experience event’.

We will be organising special drinks evenings and food evenings throughout the year for Club Members. As well as the annual 3p Club Treasure Hunt every July, the Goodfellas in August with the ‘head to head’ grand car club final between the two clubs every September!!.

There is no joining fee for the 3p Club. We will from time to time ask for small donations for local charities at our club events.

Each member on joining will receive a 3p Mug and a free pint of Bulls Head Bitter (or glass of wine) served to them proudly in the pub!! Mugs will be presented when you visit to claim your pint or glass of wine or at the special events we arrange.

So come and enjoy the quirky Porsche Club now.

I know immediately this unique club alienates other car enthusiasts!!! So our landlord Ben is ‘President’ of our rival club (Ben has an old ‘Merc’) which is called ‘The Goodfellas Car Club’.

To join this club you mustn’t own a Porsche! You must be exceptionally proud of your vehicle/mode of transport and send a picture of it parked outside the Bulls Head (the same as the Porsche pictures). Ben will decide who is ‘worthy’ of joining The ‘Goodfellas’ Car Club and this club too will enjoy social events throughout the year.

The aim of both clubs over time will be to have fun, enjoy our great village pub, create friendly rivalry between the clubs and help raise money for charity.

So it’s over to you….our present and future customers… we look forward to your car photos. Each year Tim will be betting Ben £100 for a nominated charity that he will have more members than Ben in a year. Original landlord, Shane Bushell won ‘year one’ with 27 members to Tim’s 18…but Tim won in 2011 with 18 members gained (weirdly exactly the same as last year!!!) to Shane’s 16 members!!! Shane has now retired and handed the Goodfellas car club over to new landlord, Ben.

So come on…….. ‘Grab the Bull by the horns’…..and join the stampede to be in the club(s)!!!

The Independent Porsche Enthusiasts Club (TIPEC) ‘Rev’ up to The Bulls Head !!!!!

It was great to welcome the ‘real’ Porsche enthusiasts to the Bulls Head the other night with some absolute classics on show!!! The TIPEC  team travelled from far and wide to meet up and socialise while comparing cars in a distinctly friendly yet slightly competitive way!!! The team pictured above (except one who took the photo!!) were keen to join our 3p Club on the night but the light wasn’t great (as the nights are drawing in) so they did well to get the necessary photos completed with the help of the odd headlight!!

Once those photos of each car (click on car clubs to see them) outside the Bulls Head, were taken, the team were officially members and were then presented with their 3p mugs and a couple of ‘pub plates’ were shared on us!! The team will be returning for day time photo taking and we do look forward to seeing you all again soon. This means that in the members race
between Shane and I for 2011/12 I am now in a significant lead!!! Ho!!Ho!!

A special thanks to Steve and Ben for giving us the opportunity to look after the TIPEC’s. See you all soon!!

Tim’s 3p Car Club edges it versus Shane’s Goodfellas in ‘head to head’ treasure hunt!!!!

A great night was had last night as Tim’s 3p (Pub, Porsche and Pint Club) literally ‘pipped’ Shanes Goodfellas Car Club by just two points on the head to head car treasure hunt.

Lord Ted deserves great praise for putting the final treasure hunt of the season together so well.

The teams took to the road with great determination and Goodfellas team Jo and Nick won the best treasure hunt score as well as best quiz score picking up £50 of Bulls Head vouchers to spend in the pub celebrating!!!

Andrew and Dan collected the prize for least miles used whilst driving the treasure hunt to its conclusion!!!

To Shane’s bitter disappointment Jo and Nicks superb efforts didn’t manage to bring the Goodfellas home first. Team 3p stole it by TWO points!!!

Mary presented the Cup to Tim and the team and Shane accepted defeat gracefully but promised revenge next year!!!

Thanks to the teams that took part and for those that couldn’t make it your teams represented you well!!! Here’s to more treasure hunts next year!!!

Register Now for the Bulls Head Goodfellas Car club treasure hunt!!!

When ? Thursday 14th July 2011 at the Bulls Head by 7pm please.

Lord Ted (quiz master extraordinaire!!) and I have joined forces to create the Bulls Head’s local Mobberley Treasure hunt that will begin at 7pm travelling from the Bulls Head and should take no longer than an hour and a half to complete.

The Treasure hunt is not a timed race so therefore everyone will have plenty of time to get round and return to the Bulls Head safely for some nibbles and liquid refreshment!!

All we will ask is for a £5 entry fee per car which will go to the local Mobberley Church.

Drivers need to have a partner with them to help navigate and at times jump from the car (when not moving) to collect clues!! You are not restricted to one team member but your car may well restrict the number passengers you can take!!! The nibbles will be on the house as will be the first drink. Remember the top four teams will go forward to represent the Goodfellas Car Club against the 3p Club in a head to head Treasure hunt in August.

What you have to do???

Please email Shane at info@thebullsheadpub.co.uk to register. You need to register ASAP!!!!

If you know other car owners that want to join in then forward this to them and they can join the Goodfellas club on the night!!

The Maximum number of cars taking part is 10 so please be quick to register for what should be a fun evening!!

There will be a few surprises on the night I am sure so Ted and I look forward to seeing you all.

Kind Regards Shane

 

Shane wins it!!! Goodfella’s Car club wins year one!!

After a great first year of the Bulls Head pub Shane, our quirky Landlord, has managed to ‘sign up’ more members for his ‘Goodfellas’ car club than ‘Porsche nut’ Tim with his superb 3p Club!!!

So as you can see from the photos there is a miserable looking Tim with a rather over enthusiastic Shane!!!

Tim, as the loser, is paying, as promised, £100 to Shanes selected Charity………….. C.A.F.T. which is the Children’s Adventure Farm Trust in Cheshire which looks out for children disadvantaged by illness, disability and/or Poverty.

Well done Shane but year two will show Tim coming back to thrash you!! So £100 is on the second year of the Bulls Heads car club memberships!!!

Tim successfully gained 18 Porsches in the 3p club and Shane managed 27 members from the Goodfellas club!! A clear 9 members more!!!

 

Goodfellas Car Club Treasure hunt in July!!!

Yes!!! At last!! I hear you say………….an event for the Goodfellas car club!!! Lord Ted (the master of quiz and trickery)and Shane (Bulls Head Landlord and Rod Stewart…oops sorry Jag nut) are arranging a local Goodfellas car club treasure hunt in July 2011. We need to gauge your interest in such an event. If you and your car and team are up for it then please simply email Shane at info@thebullsheadpub.com and confirm your interest. The plan is to hold this event in late July. We are holding an equivalent Porsche (3p Club) event in June.

Then the best four cars and their owners and crews from each treasure hunt will then go ‘head to head’ in the ‘Car Club Treasure Hunt Cup’ Goodfellas vs 3p!!! This, then, will become an annual event called The Bulls Head Car Club Challenge.

Porsche Club Treasure Hunt gets competitive!!!!!!!

Well finally the 3p Club got together for its annual ‘Treasure Hunt’ around the lanes of Mobberley and beyond. The club members and their ‘co-pilots’ arrived last Wednesday at 7pm prompt to be briefed by ‘Lord Ted’ our quiz master and Treasure Hunt co-ordinator!!! Ted gave the eight teams their ‘treasure maps’ and the questions and sent them on their way by around 7.30pm. It was a tough evening for the teams as the questions sent them through graveyards, pub gardens and to various local landmarks. While chasing about the teams had to answer questions on the 3 ‘P’s…………. Porsches, Pints (beer) and Pub (the Bulls Head).

The aim was to win of course, but also to be in the top four finishing positions as the top four will go ‘head to head’ with the top four of the Goodfellas Car Club, who’s Treasure hunt takes place on Thursday 14th July at 7pm.

The final will be sometime in August.

Naturally the treasure hunt was not a speed test and everyone arrived back to ‘base’ safely at around 9pm. Tim welcomed everyone with a drink and some pub nibbles as Ted and Tim calculated the scores.

The winners were the ‘Collins’ girls driving ‘Classy Boxter’ who won by a ‘country mile’ from the rest!!! An honourable second was scooped by the ‘Claudia’ team with the ‘Silva’ Team in third. The top four was completed by ‘the Roadster’ that were actually in a 4S because of the rather wet weather!!!

We must say a massive thanks to everyone who took part especially The Courtenay Team who travelled from Barnsley on the night, wow!!!

The ‘wooden spoon’ was presented to the ‘Baby Boxter’ team who were last seen on a country lane in Cheshire somewhere!!

The winners got an authentic model of a GT3 and a trophy is to be made up to keep at the pub until next year’s competition!!!

Thanks too to Lord Ted for all his hard work and petrol costs!!! £60 was collected for Mobberley Church on the night!!

Come on you Goodfellas…………bring it on !!!
