Lunch run to Pit Stop Cafe, Ocean View

posted Jan 24, 2021, 7:13 PM by Peter Triggell   [ updated Jan 24, 2021, 7:23 PM ]

All are welcome to come along to the Pit Stop Cafe on Sunday 31st Jan for lunch. The address is 2070 Mt Mee Rd, Ocean View.

Sunshine Coasters will find it easier to travel via the D'Aguilar Hwy, while a majority of Brisbanians will rendezvous at the Park'n'Ride at the Gap (we're not travelling via Mt Glorious but the location is well known to most) at around 10h00. We may pick up a few at Dayboro as well.

We have a tentative booking from 11.30 for 20 but for the sake of planning and making sure we don't disappoint anyone we need to know just how many will be coming, so please let me know ASAP if you plan on attending and, if so, how many others you'll be bringing. 

See ewes on the road.

Gold Coast September 2020 Run

posted Sep 7, 2020, 2:10 PM by Peter Triggell

I was contemplating not having a run for September with the current COVID-19 situation but as long as the hotel has a current plan in place I’ve decided to go ahead.

So what I plan is to have a chat in the park followed by a short run to The Gem Hotel at Alberton for lunch.  The hotel has two sittings – 11.30am and 1.30pm (I have opted for the 11.30am sitting so RSVP is essential).

Details are:

Location: Arthur Earle Park, Nerang (our usual spot)

Arrival Time: 9.45am for a chat

Attendees can bring their own coffee – thermos, iced coffee, take-away coffee

Departure Time: 10.15am followed by a run through the cane fields

Destination Arrival Time: 11.15 – 11.30am

Destination: The Gem Hotel, 287 Stapylton Jacobs Well Rd, Alberton

RSVP: Thursday 10 September by 12 noon

Extra Special Sunshine Coast run, Sun 5 May

posted May 17, 2016, 5:37 PM by Peter Triggell

“The Rick Jones Run”

 

It’s been a year since Rick took his helmet and went to have fun on another road. Rick setup the SCCA for like-minded clubbie drivers to meet, drive and have fun (take the piss). There are many that would like to celebrate his influence and humour on our community and this will be a chance to have a drive through the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and then lunch with those that cannot make the run at one of our favourite eating/drinking holes in the area Rick’s Café in Palmwoods. We will try to get display parking at the front for clubbies and photos.

 

 

Drive:     8.45am for a 9.00am leave

Sunday 5th June

BP Forest Glen, Southbound

 

                                                                Lunch:     from 11.30am

                                    Rick’s Café & Garage
