VSCCA 75th Anniversary Rally
13 to 17 September 2019
At the November Committee Meeting it was resolved that we proceed to organise the VSCCA’s 75th Anniversary Rally which will be held at Wagga Wagga on Friday, Saturday and Sunday 13-15th September 2019.
This is a significant milestone for our Club and this event will be our Club’s major celebration for the year. We will be working to attract a high number of true vintage sports cars to demonstrate the history, provenance and continuing high status of our important club.
Five years ago, our 70th Anniversary Rally, so successfully organised by Dave Stuart in Wagga Wagga, attracted 102 cars, the majority of which were pre-war cars, and so we will again celebrate our 75th Anniversary at Wagga Wagga.
This location will facilitate the involvement of fellow enthusiasts in the Victorian and South Australia branches of the VSCC. We have already been offered strong support from Victoria.
Our club will take two days of travel to get there down on a set easy rally route and members can choose some alternatives for the return journey home.
We aim to make the journey attractive to small vintage cars as well as the heavier tourers. At this early stage plans are to start in Camden on Thursday morning and overnight at Yass on the way down.
In Wagga we will stay at the Mercure, 1-15 Morgan St Wagga Wagga, the same venue as we used for the 70th Anniversary in 2014. We have 71 rooms currently held there, together with additional motel rooms nearby and these venues are now ready to take bookings.
Expressions of Interest
Upon receipt of your early expression of interest by email (preferably) or phone I will forward you a booking code for securing a motel room. You will make your own booking at the motel using the booking code and, later, pay your own accommodation. I am advised that no motel costs will be payable until the event.
First in best dressed!
Naturally we would like to keep all the pre-war cars together in the one motel if we can for the sake of inclusiveness and presentation.
75th Celebration Dinner
The 75th Celebration Dinner will be held on Sunday 15th September at the Mercure, this being the actual date of the first meeting of the Club on 15th September 1944.
Founder members at this time came from NSW, Victoria and South Australian so it is appropriate that we share this event with them.
We will develop a programme of activities for the Saturday and Sunday involving modest distance touring and a bit of sightseeing with good food.
Temora Air Museum are unable to tell me whether they will be flying on that date so more may come of that. Other possible Club activities that may be combined consecutively or concurrently with this Rally are being assessed by the committee.
So, the Anniversary Rally is definitely on and we invite all members to join us in sharing this 75th Anniversary of the start of our club.
You may register your early expression of interest by clicking the blue buetton below to send me an email (preferred) firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 0418 666 952.
We hope you can join us!
