2019 is in Taswegia.

My chances of making Mackay were slim anyway but once I heard about 2019 they became even slimmer.  I shall do my best to get to Tasmania (*pending family commitments).

Looking less like I will get to Mackay, but JW and I are going to check out Tassie in March of 2018, but, depending on 2019 dates, I will hopefully make it to Tassie again in 2019 . . .

Add myself and another to the list. I will be attending and another mate of mine will also be attending. Put us both down for attendance at the Saturday night dinner.

Leanne and I may not be able to make the Mackay Rally as I am changing employment at the end of March. We will see how it pans out over the coming months. :blu13

MACKAY
Tropical North Queensland

NatRally2018 Update

  Having seen the results of the member survey about the Wooli rally and venue, we put our
thinking caps back on to consider how we could make things more convenient for members
attending, and we think we’ve come up with a great solution.

  Rather than packing everyone onto buses to a dinner venue some distance from the Rally
caravan park, we’ve managed to hire the Mackay Indoor Sports Arena next door for this
purpose. The MISA is well used to this sort of thing as they hold end of season awards night,
the space is generous, they have an air conditioned lounge/bar area, and best of all, they’re
a mere 200m from the caravan park, right next door. You don’t even have to go out the gate,
you can just walk through. The Rally Dinner will be a choice of two roast options and a
vegetarian option. GF and other dietary issues will be catered for if you advise us in good
time. There will also be two dessert options.

  During the times MISA is open, the bar facilities will be available to us. (Friday 9am-9pm,
Saturday 9am-to the end of our dinner; Sunday 9am-1.00pm; Monday 9.00-10.00pm).
Please note that we do not have exclusive use of the place during normal operating hours.
They have a limited range in the bar, beers only, so if you want something specific to drink
with your meal, let us know, as they’ll lay it on for you; specialist beers, spirits or wines.
Please note that as they are licensed you cannot BYO.

  In addition, the MISA will host the Friday afternoon collection of rally packs, the 5pm meet
and greet, and the welcome BBQ at 6.30. They will also lay on breakie for Saturday and
Sunday mornings from 7.00-8.30am. (Thumbs up).

  We will hold the rally photo call at the Mackay Harbour Breakwater, along the sea wall right
at the end of the breakwater, with the sea and islands in the background. There is plenty of
space for parking the bikes and arranging the members for a photo. Members are all
requested to wear their rally shirts.

  The Saturday RTE will now go out to Eungella for a light lunch. This is not a marshalled ride,
so we will hand out maps and directions for those who do not have satnav. The Eungella
Chalet will lay on finger food along the lines of what was provided at The Laurence Tavern
for the Wooli rally, and there will be no problem with seating as they have plenty of space.
Returning from Eungella you will have ample time to catch up with friends, see a How-To,
shower, change, have a drink and generally chill out.

  On Sunday after breakie, those who are staying on will be able to take part in the RTE to the
Old Station Teahouse for morning tea (again, maps and directions will be provided if
required), followed by a ride over to the Eimeo Pacific Hotel, perched on a clifftop
overlooking the sea. We thoroughly recommend taking this in for the sensational view and
the excellent food.

  Sunday evening will include the customary ‘take-away run’ for fish & chips, pizza, etc, at the
caravan park. Some of you may have signed up with ST2UP for the fishing charter, and this will
kick off early on Monday. Please contact ST2UP for more details on this, if you’re interested.

Location:

BIG4 Mackay Marine Tourist Park

Telephone: 0749 551496

BIG4 Mackay Marine Tourist Park are now taking bookings for NR2018.

The owners have asked if members would preferably book by phone and quote OzSTOC when booking,
to ensure that they (and we) can keep track of accommodation booked and group members together. 
Do please let the Park managers know if you are happy to share, or if you wish to be sole occupiers.
Booking via the website does not offer the option of adding additional occupiers at a later date,
or grouping OzSTOC members together.



If you wish to attend please click Event Registration to fill out the form:


All information is private and is treated as such, we need this to be able to accurately budget and organise the event

So, sort out some leave, phone up to book your bed and then watch this space for Registration details! OzSTOC NR2018 will be here in no time at all!


If you have Registered for Mackay and now not attending please advise admin@ozstoc.com

 Thanks for the call on Friday, John.
I'm home again (after picking up another 34 town signs for the spelling game).
You and Kate have excelled yourselves, getting all those ducks in a row.  Pretty exciting stuff. 
Now we just need a few more folks with the time and inclination to travel to North Queensland.
Just for those buying a piggy bank for 2019- I'm going to Tassie this year with CMA for our National Run.  The trip across the Strait and back with a share (with 1 other) cabin and the bike and my Senior's concession costs $479.14   :eek

For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

Thanks Bill for the encouragement.... Sadly not yet eligible for the same fare discount so we may need a larger piggy bank... John

Because I don’t think I’ll be driving, let alone riding, we’ve booked a site for our Avan for the rally. Unfortunately that means I will have to forgo the pleasure of sharing with Cerebral Knieval this year and leave that to some some other lucky members.
