National Motoring Heritage Day, Picnic in the Park – Sunday 21st May 2017 – CANCELLED

CANCELLED – DUE TO QUEENS PARK BEING TOO WET FOR THE MOTOR VEHICLES

We walked around Queens Park. The grounds are too wet under foot and, out of respect to the grounds and the relationship have with Ipswich City Council, we have made the decision to cancel the event.

We cannot have 250+ motor vehicles driving onto these lawns. The attached photograph explains the condition of the Park.
The event is cancelled for this year, not postponed.
Please pass this message on to anybody you know who was planning on attending.
PS Queens Park is currently perfect for growing mushrooms. This photo was taken in Queens Park  Saturday.

The page is gaining interest.  Karen has emailed the link to the clubs on the QHMC club list and asked them to share with their members. Karen has also subscribed to the news feed of the clubs that have a Facebook page which means she can immediately share their events to the page.
Our main aim is, not only to strengthen the connection for the clubs to QHMC, but with each other.

What is National Motoring Heritage Day?

National Motoring Heritage Day is an initiative of Australian Historic Motoring Federation, with the aim being to promote and display Australia’s strong motoring heritage and also to show the community, businesses and government the strength of the Australian historic motoring movement.

All QHMC clubs are encouraged to participate in an event on the day as, without promotion of our hobby, the government and community support may gradually fade and concessional registration schemes may be lost.

Our vehicles are a “mobile museum”, of which we are the custodians; they need to be viewed and enjoyed by the public.

Make this your monthly club run.

This event is at NO COST to you or your club.

Display your historic vehicle, have a fun day and “share the passion” with the public.

PLEASE NOTE If your club is erecting a marquee, there are to be NO PEGS OR STAKES INTO THE GROUND. Marquee’s must be weighted down, not pegged down.

Stolen car trailer

Attached photos show a trailer stolen from a front yard in Melbourne, in the early hours of Monday night (14th September 2015).  The trailer is characteristic in having several vintage chassis rails incorporated in its construction. Please phone Rob and Glenise on 03 5439 6254 if you have any information on its whereabouts.
