Venue: Westerfolds Park (Melways Map 33G2) Fitzsimmons Lane, Templestowe.
After driving through gateway continue on bearing to right (ignoring sharp turn to left) passing toilet block on left. Continue on to the roundabout marked “Red Stringybark Carpark" where you turn left. Our spot, which is the 2nd covered area on the right with large carpark, is clearly marked with the 2 Club banners.

Time: Meeting at Park from 7am onwards (no prior meeting point and no convoy) for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Picnic location will be secured from 630am. Thus, participants can arrive as early as they like from 7am and are encouraged to do so to justify our Club's retention of the site to other members of the public seeking sites.

Impromptu Runs or Pop-up Runs on a week day

The Committee would like to encourage members to welcome other members to join them on their private Morry runs during the week, or whenever, to increase social interaction of members in-between Club meetings and the monthly weekend runs. This has been difficult to arrange previously when relying on either "the Generator" or just the monthly meetings to broadcast run arrangements.
But with almost everyone on the Internet these days, it should be possible to get this happening immediately following the simple procedure outlined below.

As soon as you have a run in mind, preferably at least with 48 hours notice, send an email to the Editor headed "Pop-up Run" giving details of date, time & place of meeting, (McDonald's are good mustering places for coffee and initial toilet visit) and details of the intended destination and any suggestions for BYO food or café etc. plus your name and mobile phone number.
The Editor will then immediately forward your e-mail to all Club members listed on the Club database.
All you have to do then is turn up at the selected meeting point by the appointed time, and a good time can be had by all.
Feedback to the Club via any of the Committee members would be appreciated after such runs or at the next Club meeting.
Please note that Pop-up runs are not intended to replace the monthly weekend run, but to be an additional Club activity.

Please think of runs you would like to do this year, or even next year,
and discuss them with the
Club Captain.
