Mystery Run

Mystery Run through the Mornington Peninsular organised by Mark Parritt.

Springtime is the perfect time to take a run through the picturesque Mornington Peninsula.

This run will take us through many beautiful and interesting peninsula back roads that are not full of heavy traffic (No Dirt Roads). Halfway through the run we will arrive in Flinders for a half hour stop to look at the town, visit the Chocolatier and other shops, visit the Pier or take a spectacular drive around the golf course to view the ocean.

After our time in Flinders we will make our way along the coast to Baxter Tavern for lunch. The Tavern has an extensive Bistro Menu to suit all tastes.

The meeting point is the BP Service station on Peninsula Link at Baxter at 9:30 am for a sharp getaway at 10:00 am. For those that cannot make the Run but want to join us for lunch they should be at the Baxter Tavern by 12:30 pm.

I will need to know numbers for lunch by the close of day, 31st August, so I can book some tables for us. After that date you can still come along but there is no guarantee that you will be able to sit in the same area with the rest of us.

If you require more information and/or to book your place for Lunch.
Call Mark Parritt 0403 194 021 or email  markparritt@gmail.com

The Knox Car Show

A Car and Art Show, with live music, Art sales and Sausage Sizzle will be held at the Knox Club, 480 Boronia Road, Wantirna South from 10.30 am to 3:00 pm. Entry will be by Gold Coin donation for each car displayed, with members of the public paying $5 each.

To raise funds for cancer research, the Club Committee, with the approval of the July General Meeting, has decided to support this cause by donating a minimum of $200 to the Cancer Council plus an additional $25 for each Morris Minor that attends the event.
A volunteer is sought to organise the run on the day.
Those prepared to volunteer for this task, or simply to record their intention to attend in their Morry,
are requested to contact me, Michael Dobson on 0400 273 328
Further details of this worthwhile event will appear in an upcoming issue of The Generator.

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 Morries 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, (McDonalds 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 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.
