Gold Coast Group Runs are Back!

posted Jun 29, 2020, 4:41 PM by Kerry Milner

Here are the details of the next run. Contact Helen Hunt (number at foot) if you'd like to participate. 

Date: Sunday 12 July

Meeting Place: Arthur Earle Park, Nerang (usual spot)

Time: 7:45 am for 8 am departure

The broad plan is a run up towards Springbrook, down the back towards Beechmont, then back towards Nerang.

Coffee Stop: Bistro 463 (Beaudesert – Nerang Road)

Helen won't be booking a table so you'll just be trying your luck on the day. No doubt they'll have takeaways so it should all work out fine. 

Contact Helen (Hellsbells) on 0414 273 663 if you'd like to join this run. The normal social distancing rules apply to all stops along the way, so stay safe. 

On the Road Again!

posted May 20, 2020, 4:27 PM by Kerry Milner

To a limited degree at least, while COVID-19 restrictions are gradually relaxed. Everyone is advised to abide by the new rules as and when they change, but at present things are looking much more positive. Some members took advantage of the new 150km radius limit to have a really good drive to Fernvale earlier in the week and had a very enjoyable day. 

Additionally, Motorsport Australia has now confirmed the licence renewal extensions it flagged late last year. If you have full year Motorsport Australia licence, check their webpage for your own renewal date.

As ever, though, stay safe. 

COVID-19 Update

posted Apr 17, 2020, 3:38 PM by Kerry Milner

Due to the current national lockdown and social distancing laws, all events currently on the Club calendar are on hold until the situation changes. As many would be aware, this includes all motoring events nationally, and Motorsport Australia are in regular contact with all Clubs regarding the current situation. 

We aim to maintain our bi-monthly meeting schedule via videoconference to keep members in touch with each other.

Everyone stay safe during this unusual and difficult time. 

A Note to All Members and Enthusiasts

posted Mar 24, 2020, 6:38 PM by Kerry Milner

By now you're all well aware of the difficult situation in which the entire country currently finds itself due to the COVID-19 virus. 

It's incumbent upon us all to play our part to help limit the spread of this disease. Taking this issue seriously by doing our bit will help keep others safe so we can get through this crisis in the minimum possible time, though it will by no means be easy or quick. 

Take good care of yourselves and your loved ones and we look forward to catching up with you all again when it's once again safe to hold club meetings.

October Southside Run to Rathdowney and Roadvale

posted Oct 9, 2019, 12:00 AM by Kerry Milner

Greetings everyone

It's almost been a couple of months since you had an excuse to arc up the 7s and go for a drive. Apart from those of you who run the cop gauntlet up to Mt Glorious every Tuesday. On Sunday 20 October I propose we take a pleasant drive not too long and not too short this is just the right length south of town to Rathdowney and on to the Roadvale pub for a bit of nosebag. This will be the last formal run prior to the end of year, of course not discounting the Xmas stroll to Spicers.

Arrangements are as follows:

Rendezvous point - McDonalds carpark city side of the Browns Plain Rd intersection on your left. Take the Browns Plain Rd off ramp before the intersection, turn left into Browns Plains Rd and then first left again into the Maccas car park. Meet in the Maccas car park. Maccas make an acceptable coffee I am advised (but wouldn't know because I am a coffee snob). Meet there at 09h30 for a 10h00 departure.

We will travel south along the Mt Lindsay Hwy and arrive at Beaudesert at approximately 10h40 where we will meet any members joining us from the Gold Coast. We will recommence our journey about 10h50. 

We will then travel from Beaudesert south to Rathdowney and then turn right on to the Boonah Rathdowney Rd (route 93) through Boonah, turning left onto Roadvale Rd approx 2 kms north of the Beaudesert Boonah Rd. 

The lunch destination is the Roadvale Pub approx 2 km off the Ipswich Boonah Rd. The Pub has a range of meals ranging from cheap pub meals to slightly more exy fancy dishes, Italian food seems to be a signature slant at this refurbished establishment. The menu may be found through the miracles of modern technology that occasionally works here:

I will book the Pub but would you please let me have your expressions of interest in attending asap so I can actually give them numbers for the tables. 

The run home will be via the Ippy Boonah Rd, any GC crew via the Beaudesert Boonah Rd.

Look forward to seeing you there.

In Memoriam - Ken Lambert

posted Aug 19, 2019, 11:06 PM by Kerry Milner

It saddens us to have to report that Ken passed away last Friday, 16 March, as a result of multiple myeloma causing heart failure. Ken has been a stalwart of the club for the past 13 years; always ready with a story or a joke, as well as lots of helpful information for other clubbie owners, and will be greatly missed. 

His funeral service is being held this Friday on the Gold Coast. Contact the secretary - - for details.
