CLUB RUNS
 

The Club offers its members the opportunity to take part in two types of runs. One is the Day Run held on various Sundays throughout the year and the other is the Mid-week run held regularly on the fourth Wednesday of each month. There is also one weekend away, usually held in July.

These runs are organized to allow time for socializing as well as enjoying a drive with fellow enthusiasts.

Details of meeting times and places for the runs are advertised on the Calendar page of this website and also in the Octagon. A contact name is always given so that you can check on the latest details of the run.

Most participants drive their MG but other makes are not excluded. Below are reports and photos of some recent runs held by MG Car Club.

MG CAR CLUB MIDWEEK RUN

Wednesday Run 28/07/21

To Glamorgan Vale Bottletree Hotel for lunch.

 

After being battered for days from cold winds from the west, you could not ask for a better day to fire up the car and go for a run in the country.

16 MGs out of a total of 26  including a rather nice old Ford Mustang / brum /brum.

 

It was good to see some of our older members and friends come along for this run ie. John and Glen Boyce, Ian and Karen Fettes and Marie Bennett.

 

16 set off from the Calamvale Hotel car park for morning tea at Colleges Crossing where our north side members were waiting.

 

After a cuppa and a chit chat back into the cars for a run to the pub with some lovely back road driving which took us through the townships of Rosewood,  Grandchester, Laidley, Plain lands, Lowood and then on to Glamorgan Vale for lunch. The staff and food at the hotel was more that acceptable.

See you on the next run.

A DAY IN THE COUNTRY, 3 OCTOBER, 2021

 

We spaced out the attending 162 vehicles so the paddock was full and had just under 300 people attend.

Your attendance and generosity at the gate and spending on the day, as well as the attending car club committees, contributing to the full cost of the multi prize raffle, on the day provided $7,260.

The Fassifern Valley Rotary Club will this year use this money to assist local families affected by the COVID economic downturn and unfortunately in hand with the Salvos, aid families where domestic violence has occurred.

After 10 years to restore it, Wasyl Malar donated a better than new Crown wood stove made between 1920 and 1930 to a silent auction.   

 

$1,850 was the winning bid.

All the proceeds of the silent auction went to 4 AUSSIE HEROS FOUNDATION, a charity we supported three years ago and also on Australia Day 2021.   This foundation runs camps for first responders suffering from mental health issues.  A link to their website is below.
