The 2020 Touring Car Club Trip

Hi all,
Feel like a mid winter break to sunny Queensland? If so, consider the Morris Minor Touring Club run starting in Mildura Victoria on 30 August this year and finishing on 20 September at Wagga Wagga NSW. In Mildura, we will join our SA and maybe some WA morry friends.
Attached is an updated list of the country towns we are visiting as well as the registration form.
It is not restricted to a Morry. Some people bring a modern while others tow caravans. We don't travel in large convoys and people leave at various times of the day but we always arrive in time for happy hour.
From Mildura, we travel the Sturt Hwy, Mid Western then the Newell Hwy. We then go onto the New England Hwy and Isis Hwy to Hervey Bay (avoiding Brisbane) where we stop for 3 days to go whale watching, fishing or to visit the iconic Fraser Island, the World's largest sand island famous for its coloured sands and dingos. Also, 100kms up the road is the Bundaberg Rum Distillery.
After leaving Hervey Bay, we travel to Landsborough via the Bruce Hwy. Landsborough is behind Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast about a 20 minute drive away. We stay here for 3 days to catch up on sun, surf and relaxing.
From Landsborough, we travel to Warwick via the Brisbane Valley Hwy. (This avoids Brisbane again). From here we get onto the New England Hwy to Wagga Wagga.
This tour takes in lots of country towns and avoid any large metropoles. It will be great to support our country cousins in their time of need. (Bring an empty esky)

Cheers
Graham Dines

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.
