Easter 2017 : Friday April 14 to Monday April 17
Auckland Branch is holding the 2017 National North Island Easter Rally. We would love for you to join us for a weekend of great rural vintage motoring, excellent company and fun entertainment – all at a low cost. Most Aucklander’s leave Auckland for Easter weekend so please do not be put off by any perception that Auckland is too big and busy.
The format for the weekend is:
Friday: A Welcome Garden Party and casual dinner at our clubrooms in Penrose. Our spare parts and extensive library will be open. Pick up your rally pack, catch up with other entrants over a drink and afternoon tea and stay on for an early light dinner.
Saturday: Rally Day – competitive and touring options; starting in Papakura. The rally will be held over rural South Auckland roads, these are as quiet as anywhere else in the country.
In the evening we will again host entrants at our clubrooms for dinner and light entertainment.
Sunday: Starting again from Papakura, entrants will tour at their leisure to the rural village of Clevedon, where we will host you at a member’s property for a picnic lunch and gymkhana. There are also other options close by to visit – farmers market, craft market, historic homestead and beaches.
Sunday evening will be the Prize giving Dinner and Dance held at the Commercial Travellers Club in Remuera.
Monday: Free for you to head home.
Your organising committee is aiming to make this a fun, low cost weekend. As a branch we are now travelling to other branch events in a group traversing less travelled back roads and find this is becoming very popular. So take up the challenge and get your branch organised to do likewise for Easter Auckland 2017.
