Burra to Morgan Heritage Drive

09 Sep - 10 Oct 2010

You are invited to a Weekend of Motoring Nostalgia and Adventure
OCTOBER 9th and 10th 2010.

_Run by The Northern Automotive Restoration Club SA Inc. (Burra Group)
inconjuction with
The Veteran Car Club of South Australia

The premier event will, of course, be the Burra to Morgan Heritage Drive on Sunday 10th October. Following the success of the 2006 centenary re-enactment of the Burra Motor Club’s foundation drive to Morgan and the subsequent re-enactment in 2008, we are planning to celebrate this part of South Australia’s motoring heritage again in 2010.

We call upon all Gentlemen, Ladies, their chauffeurs and mechanics to join us in attempting to traverse the 87km of the ‘Saltbush Plain’, beyond Goyder’s Line, to the historic River Port of Morgan. It is hoped that the record set in 1906 of four arduous days of motoring for the round trip can be broken! Many delights await our intrepid expeditioners at Morgan. The River has cool breezes abound, bountiful green banks and shady River Red Gums. Excellent picnic spots for the most discerning Gentlemen and their Fair Lady companions. The company present will satisfy the most fastidious and ensure a delightful social intercourse.

The weekend will begin on Saturday 9th October with a short and leisurely ‘shake-down’ excursion to the small township of Farrell Flat. A light but delicious lunch can be procured at Gally’s Meeting House and Café at the township. This motoring experience will afford the owners of Veteran, Vintage and Classic automobiles the opportunity of fettling their machines in preparation for the Grand Expedition the following day.

Place this not to be missed social event in your 2010 Motoring Diary. Further information will be forthcoming early in the New Year from Roger T. Cross Esq., rcjmc@bigpond.com.
