GoldFields Chapter Sunday Run to Ballarat 5 May 2013
« on: April 22, 2013, 10:08:44 PM »
Please find below details of our next Kick Ass Sunday EMR. 5th May 2013

Goldfields Chapter

Sunday Run to Ballarat on 5th May 2013.

Includes Dealer Visit, Club Display and Goldfields Meeting.

Due to popular demand, The Club has organized another Sunday Run (previously referred to as an EMR) from Melbourne through the South Western region through to Ballarat. 

Shane Wescott (116 Series Register Captain) is planning a great drive with a convenient start point ending at a local Ballarat Alfa Romeo Dealer.  We will have a showroom visit and BBQ with local chapter members followed by a short meeting for local members and those interested.

Start Time:         8.30 am for 9.00 am departure. PLEASE BE ON TIME, OR ARRIVE EARLY FOR CHIT CHAT TIME.

Where:       Maranello PurSang Motors
         33 Colebrook Street
         Brunswick, 3056.

Melways Ref:   29 G5   

This will be an easy cruise from Brunswick, through some hills and dales, over bridges and between trees.

There are two options for regional members to join in:

1.   We will hit the Carlsruhe BP Petrol Station on Cob and Co Road around 10:30m. From there we will have some lovely winding country roads, or
2.   Around 11:15 at The Royal Hotel Daylesford, 27 Vincent Street. From here we will have a leisurely drive down the highway to our destination with only some minor detours.

So pick your meeting point with us. If you can make the Carlsruhe point I promise you a great drive, if you meet us in Daylesford I promise you some great company 

We will then continue to our destination Peter Stevens Motorworld,  615 Creswick Road, Ballarat. The Club will have a vehicle display, showroom tour followed by a BBQ lunch. We are aiming to get to our destination around 12:00pm

Members of the Club who live in Macedon and Goldfields region are most welcome to attend as this drive is in support of the local regional chapter members. A brief meeting will be held after lunch to welcome local members and supporters.

New members with any Alfa Romeo re encouraged to attend.   For club members and friends with vintage and historic vehicles, we suggest an earlier departure at so we can all meet up at the same time for morning tea.  Route instructions will be provided at the start.

Please confirm your booking for catering purposes:

Top run held today.  When we got up this morning in Maldon it was 0.6 celsius, and by the time we departed at 9am the temperature had soared to 3.3 degrees!  But by the time we met up at with the group at Carlsruhe it was warm in the sun and very pleasant driving.  After a nice BBQ lunch put on by Peter Stevens Motorworld, we went down to Lake Wendouree and had a ride on the historic tram (trams are about Jack's favourite thing!).  Will have to head back to Ballarat some time soon with enough time to properly check out the tram museum.

Thanks heaps to Shane and other organisers, and to the chaps at Peter Stevens Motorworld for putting on lunch.

An aside... as Jack and I wandered around the yard looking at the Hyundai, Fiat, and Alfa models on display I was overcome with the urge to poke out my eyes at the sight of the current model Fiat 'Freemont'.  Worst bit of badge engineering I've seen in years, IMO an insult to the Fiat brand.  I assume they sell very well  :-\
