Twilight Rally
Feb
24
to Feb 25

Twilight Rally

Twilight Run to Wisemans Ferry

Enjoy a 3-hour twilight run on superb roads starting in Northern Sydney and ending at The Retreat in Wisemans Ferry. Dinner and barefoot bowls at the Bowling Club Saturday night.  

Ideal for slower cars, new members, and families.

This is a new event organised but one of our new committee members, Malcolm Knight with assistance from Jeremy Morris.

The idea is to have a short, easy navigation rally late in the afternoon to take advantage of the last long days of summer, so people can accommodate school sport or other social commitments with their vintage motoring activities.

This will depart from the Berowra Truck stop with a departure time of 4.30 pm for slower cars with a total distance of 130 kms on empty rural roads. Total travel time is about three hours.

Dinner

The rally will conclude with an a la carte dinner at the bowling club (dish prices roughly  $15-25). There is the option for barefoot bowls after dinner at $5 per head- kids free.

You do not have to stay

You do not have to stay the night- you can depart after the rally, or after dinner.

Accommodation

We plan to stay at the Retreat at Wiseman’s Ferry:

Because of other bookings, there is limited accommodation available at the Retreat, so you will need to book asap. Average cost is about $150 for the night, depending on the type of room you select.

If you cannot get in at the Retreat, you can try the Wisemans Ferry Inn.

Breakfast or brunch- it is up to you

Breakfast is available at the Retreat at $25 per head, but we are planning to get up at a reasonable time and take a scenic route on quiet roads for a further 50 kms to have brunch at Berowra Waters. There is no capacity to book but we are assured that we will be able to get tables. The cost is about the same.

After brunch, cross the ferry, let the modern traffic pass you, and take the hill at a pace which suits you and your car.

DIRECTIONS

The property is called “The Missions 1937” it has 3 kilometres of river frontage and is located along the river road between Wisemans Ferry and Spencer. Simply cross the main ferry at Wisemans Ferry and when alighting turn right and head for Spencer and the property is located on the right hand side of the road as you negotiate a sharp left hand bend some 5 miles (8 kms) from the ferry.

ABOUT THE DAY

A repeat of last year’s event will be run at The Missions in Gunderman alongside the Hawkesbury River near Wisemans Ferry. This year we are hoping for far less wind and more planes coming in and taking off on the grass airstrip than we saw last year.

Roy has a collection of vintage aeroplanes and on the day his friends and their vintage aircraft will be flying in to join us. The Bridge City Jazz Band will be present to add to the atmosphere on the day. 

This is a very special BYO picnic and drinks day. 

Primrose and Roy Fox, our hosts and the owners of The Missions, will again provide a complimentary afternoon tea in the large purpose built function centre/hanger near the house from 2 pm onwards. 

Entry fees will be donated to the Salvation Army Children’s Christmas Appeal and the Woman’s Refuge. 

So mark the date down on your calendar, arrive at The Missions about 10.30am and enjoy a great day out.

Come enjoy the magnificent vintage cars, vintage planes, music and marvellous location.

Jazz Lunch at Bellawongarah

  • 427 Tourist Road Bellawongarah, NSW, 2535 Australia (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

RSVPs to Wilga Coutts at euanwil@bigpond.com as soon as possible.  

It’s on again!  Many members enjoyed the catered lunch at Tony Strachan’s lovely house at Bellawongarah near Berry in 2013.  A jazz band played in the roof-top gazebo. There was plenty of space for cars and people on the lawns, with a backdrop of the rainforest.

Tony has kindly invited us again for a catered lunch under the trees, with the jazz band again on the roof, and the added attraction of the chance to see his new motor house - or should that be “motor palace” - and proper cars displayed in the paddock.

The cost is expected to be $50 per person and $25 for children. The money will be collected at the entrance on the day.
  
RSVPs

Numbers are needed early for catering, so please RSVP to Wilga Coutts at euanwil@bigpond.com as soon as possible.

The absolute cut -off date for reservations will be 19th October. NOTE: This event is in lieu of the Southern Highlands Breakfast Run on the last Sunday of the month.
  
Book early so you don't miss out  

If you have any other enquiries, contact Tony on 0418 675 863.
