LandCruiser 70th Anniversary celebrations
(Extended Activity)

Circa 1st August, 2021

Expressions of Interest

Next year around 1st of August 2021, the Landcruiser will be 70 years old.
While they have not been in Australia that long, nevertheless it’s a significant landmark.

An informal request from our friends at the TLCC SA has been received, as to whether members of our Club would be interested in joining in a multi-state gathering to celebrate the occasion. I believe a similar request has been sent to NSW and QLD.

I am seeking expressions of interest from members who would like to join in a caravan/camper-trailer trip to Broken Hill and surrounds, including places of interest for the outbound and return drives, with a duration of around 2 weeks, either side of 1st August 2021 date. The duration is indicative.

At this time, there is no detail behind this proposal, other than to seek the level of interest. Given the lead time, and member response from around the Clubs, a complete trip itinerary any costs and activities, will be developed in the new year, if there is member support.
