21nd - 23rd September 2018

National Rally 2018, Canberra.

Please see the National Rally page for more information.
This will be conducted by the Canberra Region Morris Minor Car Club Inc.

This, the 19th National Rally, will mark the 70th anniversary of the production of the first Morris Minor.

There will be a comprehensive program, including opportunities for the sort of camaraderie that has highlighted previous rallies. Over the coming months, the organising club will regularly keep people up to date with their preparations. Our Hosts are planning to include most of the usual events associated with a National Rally; chances to catch up with MM enthusiasts, to have some fun, and to tour their wonderful region.

A highlight of the Rally will be a display, to be held in central Queanbeyan, marking the 70th anniversary of the Morry we all love so well.

Impromptu Runs or Pop-up Runs on a week day

The Committee would like to encourage members to welcome other members to join them on their private morrie runs during the week, or whenever, to increase social interaction of members in-between Club meetings and the monthly weekend runs. This has been difficult to arrange previously when relying on either "the Generator" or the monthly meeting to broadcast run arrangements but with almost everyone on the internet these days it should be possible to get this happening immediately following the simple procedure outlined below.

As soon as you have a run in mind, preferably at least with 48 hours notice, send an email to the Editor headed "Pop-up Run" giving details of date, time & place of meeting, (McDonalds are good mustering places for coffee and initial toilet visit) and details of intended destination and suggestions of BYO food or café etc. and your name and mobile phone number.
The Editor will then immediately forward your e-mail to all Club members listed on the Club database.
All you have to do then is turn up at the selected meeting point by the appointed time and a good time can be had by all.
Feedback to the Club via any of the Committee members would be appreciated after such runs or at the next Club meeting.
Please note that Pop-up runs are not intended to replace the monthly weekend run but be an additional Club activity.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please think of runs you would like to do this year, or even next year,
and discuss them with the Club Captain.
