This Years Event Calender

Postby OzTowdster » Thu Feb 02, 2017 5:12 pm

Hey guys and gals while I'm layed up at home for a few days with a sprained ankle I thought it would be as good time as any to get a few events happening in the Australian Manx Club .
As a start I'd like to open up a discussion here on a few of my ideas

A road run up around Tamborine and Tamborine Mt with say lunch at the Bearded Dragon .

Road runs up Mt Mee with BBQ lunches

A weekend up at Double Isl seeing as we missed the annual trip

Morton Island ( although we don't need every trip over there as many members either don't have the money or the time needed to make Morton's cost viable

A weekend down at Minnie Water ( East of Grafton ) plenty of beaches and would also get a few cars from Central coast .

And heading the other way up north , is Five Rocks which is near Yeppoon which is Smiley's home town ( a great area lots of beaches lots of trails , great camping areas .

Land cruiser Park which has reopened

Levuka 4wd park ( another great little park down behind Beaudesert on the border )

Being the Valla off year Buggyfest is also going to be on the calendar around Oct again up at Noosa North shore

Now I'm trying to get a good spread of areas and ideas to hopefully please all our members

Obviously we do the long distance trips over long weekends etc to make the most of the time in the areas

So let's hear from you people

As soon as mine is reliable again I will be driving the #%@# out of it. So I will keep an eye on the ones that are closer to Sydney. But I want to do valla when that comes around. Wouldn't mind meeting some like minded buggy dudes too.
It will all be ok in the end.. if is not ok its not the end!

Yyyyyeeeaaahhhh!!!!.....This is so good to see...a bit of action in the Manx (Dune) Buggy Club.... I'll be honest, I thought the club was just becoming a means to concessional rego or something....(afraid in this respect, being a club member isn't much assistance to me in Aussies most southern state for joining in on a run or the rego bit).. but will be renewing my membership now that am aware of you guys getting some runs organised just to try to be up to date with the goss!!!...Bring it!!!..Get things happening.... :D :D Pud

One of the attractions of moving to Brisbane was to get out and about with the buggy club. I hope to be able to come along to some events. Don't know about half the places you are talking about, but have been to Minnie Waters a couple of times some years back, and they were great trips.

So is anyone actually planning to make the trip up for a 5 Rocks run??

I just realised this is next weekend over Easter.

I have somewhere that we can camp for free at a friend's farm and have a few ideas in mind for some places to go and things to see.
So if anyone is actually interested please let me know. Otherwise I will make other plans for the long weekend.

Hey Towdster, I've been offline for a while and after catching up on your upcoming events post I realised that the Wheelies day (21 May) is during my holidays and unfortunately I won't be around this neck of the woods.

I think Maxx might be organising this one, but in the interest of giving as much notice as possible (sorry it's not that much) I have posted here. Hopefully there will still be enough buggies getting involved to make this event work.

Sorry about that, I was pretty keen to be involved but I lost track of it after it was postponed a few times.

Cheers
I may not have gone where I intended to go ... but I've ended up where I needed to be. :mrgreen: Douglas Adams.
