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.

JUNE MIDWEEK RUNS
After the lack of runs because of the Virus restrictions, it was decided to have two runs on this occasion with a maximum participation of 20 to keep within the confines of the current rules. This proved very successful as the bookings for the runs filled very quickly and then everyone enjoyed the runs planned by Bruce Bayliss and Errol Hoger.
Photos of Bruce's run - mainly cars - were from Malcolm Campbell; and those of Errol's run were taken by Jeff Heslewood and these include the cow photos.
Overnight run 26th -27th February, 2020 - A fine sunny day greeted all!
First run of the year saw 17 cars – 7 real MGs -3 New pretend MGs and 7 others. A nice leisurely run through Dayboro over Mt Mee to morning tea outside of Woodford
Amazing how some rain can make the country side so green. Then on to lunch at Nanago where, as usual, It was difficult to get everyone moving after lunch and lots of talking.
But because we were stopping at Wondai for Second hand and antiques plus opp shops with a Museum thrown in, everyone was at their cars early waiting for me. After another casual drive past a couple of wineries (which only open on weekends) we arrived at Wondai.
Quite a few purchase were made here then everyone made their own way to Kingaroy. Happy hour was popular as always Then to the RSL for dinner. Some decided to head straight home Thursday but 9 cars continued on to Bunya mountains to be greeted with fine weather and dry roads.
Coffee at the cafe then more scenic roads to Blackbutt for lunch and more shopping a look at the Roy Emerson museum for some then home.
All in all a great drive with good weather and good company.

Midweek Run to Real Milk Robotic Dairy by Errol Hoger
The day started with Morning Tea at Jubilee Park at Beaudesert. A perfect Queensland day for the first run since covid, cold clear sunny sky gave us a good day for the run. Traffic on the way was extra heavy because of road works upgrading Beaudesert Road to service all the new housing estates being established throughout the area - I would say well overdue. Need to keep this in mind for any future runs through Beaudesert.
4 MGs and 6 others made up the group giving us the COVID-19 allowance of 20 participants.
Brenda Dennis and family were waiting to welcome us when we arrived. After the sign in procedure we were given a first class informative talk on Robotic Dairy life. The Dairy consists of 4 robots that milk the cows 3 times a day. The milk produced has several uses from feeding the calves to being pasteurised and bottled on site.
After purchasing milk, cheese, and yoghurt we moved on to the lunch stop at Stinson Park , Christmas Creek. The camping area was busy but there was plenty of space for us to practice our distancing . We set up beside the creek on a well kept picnic area for a good old chin wag.
Until next time, see you on the road. Errol & Wendy
