Just in....


Hello everyone

We are now counting down the months and will be sending monthly updates for you.  If you have questions about the event, please send them through to me.

Please pass the following report on to your Club Members at your next meeting and on your runs together:

-   There are over 50 of the rooms at the Burke and Wills Toowoomba booked out.  Although we have other accommodation arranged, it will be more expensive and not in the centre of the action.  Our advice is to book your rooms asap. 
-   So far, we do not have as many entries for the actual event itself.  All entries received and paid for by the 31st December 2012, will be entered into the draw to receive their accommodation at the Burke and Wills free of charge for the three nights.
-   We have special guest coming from the Bowling Green Plant.  He is a Manager there and will be bringing over up to date information from the home of the Corvette.  He will be with us for the entire weekend and is looking forward to meeting as many people as possible as well as taking part in all our events.
-    There is no undercover parking for your pride and joy – we are sorry about that but that’s just not possible in Toowoomba.  Please ensure you bring your car covers with you.  We have security booked to look after the car parks each night.
-   Please note that on Sunday you need to choose from either the Track Day or the Sunday cruise – it is not possible to do both.  We are not planning to have extra transport to either event at this stage.




Kind Regards

I have stayed at the Burke and Wills  The carpark is open, right next to the building.  It's a fairly old building too and the rooms are rather small.  Toowoomba Central Plaza is right next door is newer and has an underground carpark, but like any underground carpark, it's tight. Obviously more expensive.

If you go, make sure you check out Phat Burger.  It's about 100m down the road from both places and make awesome burgers.

 :hi: Hi all,

As the 2013 Corvette Nationals are fast approaching, we are organising a convoy from Sydney to Toowoomba via the New England Highway. We will be meeting at Maccas on the Pacific Highway at Thornleigh in Sydney's north at 08.00am for a 08.30 departure on Wednesday 27th March. Travelling up the Hunter Valley, we hope to be in Tamworth by mid-afternoon, and will be staying overnight at The Golden Guitar Motor Inn. On Thursday morning we will continue our road trip on to Toowoomba, arriving in time to clean up the 'Vettes and settle in for the Easter long-weekend.

Ray Smith has organised "queen executive suites" at the Golden Guitar at a great rate of $130 per room for the night for us Corvetters, with around seven couples so far from NSW, and four from Canberra likely to be joining the convoy.

Anyone interested in joining us is asked to contact Donna without delay at the Golden Guitar, on 0267 622999 and book your room to avoid disappointment leading into the Easter break. Also see www.goldenguitarmotorinn.com.au for more info.

Corvettes of Melbourne have been advised of this trip and are encouraged to join us also.

We look forward to your company and the usual great cameraderie on the trip as we head to Queensland.  :pepper:  :drivedevil:

For further assistance if required, contact Ray Smith on 0412 469275.
