Historic Land Rover Social Weekend
September 24 - September 26
Patrick and Margaret Sutcliffe are inviting all owners, and those with a passion for, leaf-sprung Land Rovers, Defenders, Discovery 1s and 2s and Classic Range Rovers, to join them in a weekend of activities based on their property, Paxina.
The property has good bush camping and is about 44 kilometres north of Lithgow. Two bush toilets are provided, and there is a shower shed (bring your own shower and water). Access to the site is possible for camper trailers towed by a proper 4WD (i.e., with low ratio and high clearance), but NOT caravans. Wood for campfires is available. Dogs are welcome, as long as they are kept under control and poo picked up. Friday will be spent settling into the campsite, viewing the vehicles, counting rivets, and peering under bonnets. These activities are expected to continue throughout the weekend!
On Saturday a trip along the Turon River will be run, stopping for lunch on the riverbank, before returning to camp, where a Land Rover quiz will be held.
Over the entire weekend there will also be an “identify the mystery parts” competition. Prizes will be awarded.
A short trip will be taken on Sunday morning, through the spectacular Capertee Valley. In the evenings, many tall tales will be told around the campfire (subject to fire restrictions).
Please contact Patrick for more information and to book email Peter Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
