A new program for the Club calendar has just been introduced. For our administrators it makes data entry easier and the task can also be shared; importantly for you, the layout is very clear and user-friendly. We hope you like it. Go to the calendar page of the website, have a look and explore the options for viewing the information - day, week, four weeks, month and list.

CONCESSIONAL REGISTRATION UPDATE OF INFORMATION, Feb 2009, RE TAKING SIV REGISTERED VEHICLES TO THE CLUBROOMS.
Recently I was asked by a couple of members to seek clarification from Queensland Transport as to whether or not our members are permitted, under the restrictions of Special Interest Vehicle Registration (commonly referred to as 'Concessional Registration'), to drive their concessionally registered cars to the Clubrooms on a Friday night for the weekly Friday night Noggin 'n' Natters. The guidelines which are published on the Qld Transport website and the letters which those with cars on this type of registration received from Qld Transport last year certainly did not give a clear indication of whether or not this usage was permitted. Please click here to read the response from Queensland Transport in full.
THE CLUB JOINS FACEBOOK.
The Club has a Facebook page named MG Car Club of Qld inc and Mt Cotton Hillclimb. The aim of having this page is to use it as another way of getting messages to Club members. Its purpose is to complement this website, not replace it. Click here for our page!!
