Given the sad postponement of our planned 2020 National Rally in Hahndorf earlier this year members expressed an interest in getting together for an informal weekend when travel restrictions had eased sufficiently to allow us to confidently book a venue.
The NSW Club’s President’s Weekend is traditionally held in November, Jim Gellett, our President proposed that it would be ideal to combine that week end with this get together and with the help of Richard Bowen in Victoria and committed New South Wales members a week end away in a location more or less mid-way between Melbourne and Sydney has been planned and we have chosen the town of Merimbula as our week end destination.
Merimbula is about 580 km north east from Melbourne along the Princes Highway and about 530 km south from Sydney. It is located on the spectacular south coast of New South Wales and handy to Eden, Bega and Tathra and a popular holiday destination.
The accommodation chosen is at Pelican Motor Inn where a room should be in the region of $130.00 per night with continental breakfast extra at $20.00 per person. Some rooms maybe more if a suite or with extra facilities. Overflow rooms are available at Summerhill Motel next door.
We have arranged a $25.00 per head BYOG and soft drink barbecue on Friday night at the motel’s marquee and we will arrange reasonably priced venues for dinner on Saturday and Sunday, to be advised. All very low key with the emphasis on a very social get together, no formalities and some interesting runs to be organized for Saturday and Sunday, with those heading home to Sydney having the chance of a visit to Mogo Zoo on the way home.
We invite you to let us know if you will be joining us for what will be a very relaxed and fun weekend, within the Daimler Clubs family.
If you could please let us know by End of June so we can then arrange dining venues that would be great.
Please make your own booking at the motel.
