On March 28th the club will have a drive day to lunch at Queenscliff Brewhouse, taking a round-about way getting there.
The run will start in Spotswood, have coffee at Baby Black Espresso Bar in Bacchus Marsh, then go via Anakie, Bannockburn, Murgheboluc, Mt Duneed and Barwon Heads.
Meet at The Avenue, opposite the Coles Express petrol station, at 9am for 9:15 departure. We have started club runs from there before so it should be familiar to many of you. It’s just off the Westgate Fwy at the Williamstown Rd exit.
We will be taking the Westgate at the very start of the run and the roadworks there will be a factor. However, we’re only going as far as the Ring Road before getting off, and there are supposed to be no road closures at that time.
We’ll stop at Ian Phillips place in Bannockburn because we were virtually going past his street and, as you may remember, he’s got a quantity of car parts to give away.
The Queenscliff Brewhouse, where we have lunched on previous Queenscliff runs, has a good dining range on offer. The ‘locals’ in the club attest to its reputation for good food. Check the menu out here: https://www.queenscliffbrewhouse.com.au/hotel/menus/
We will of course have to book so please RSVP by 24 March (a week from today) if you are going – with how many are going with you.
The Queenscliff Fort is open for tours again however the standard tours are 11am and 1pm which do not fit with our run schedule at all. We can book a dedicated tour if we have enough people who would like to do it. If you want to do the tour, say so in your RSVP and if we get over (or close enough to) the special group tour threshold we’ll book one. Have a look here to see if you’re interested: https://www.fortqueenscliff.com.au
We hope that we can be doing regular drive days again now, but who can be sure. Grab this chance to go on one just in case . . .
‘Current times’ mandated Disclaimer: Of course, being subject to whatever quick response decisions the Govt sees fit to impose, this plan may change at any time.
Don’t forget – RSVP so we can do the bookings:
