HISTORIC LAND ROVER WEEK
This year, we are reverting to the original format for the Historic Land Rover gathering of a weekend, instead of a week.
All owners of leaf-sprung Land Rovers and Classic Range Rovers are invited to a weekend of activities based on the property of Club Members Patrick and Margaret Sutcliffe.
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). 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.
Details of how to get there will be provided on booking.
Fuel and Basic Supplies
Available from the store at Capertee, about 14 kilometres away.
People are welcome to arrive at the property any time after lunch on the Friday. Friday will be spent settling in to the campsite, viewing the vehicles and counting rivets. There will be a campfire in the evening subject to fire restrictions.
On Saturday morning, if there is sufficient interest, a short trip will be taken. This may be through the spectacular Capertee Valley, the Airly township ruins or visiting the historic shale mining town of Glen Davis.
After lunch, there will be a chance to test your driving skill on the various Trial courses set out by Peter Mitchell, for which a prize will be awarded.
In the evening, many tall tales will be told around the campfire (subject to fire restrictions) and the Spirit of Paxina Award will be presented to the participant who best exemplifies the idea of restoring old Land and Range Rovers.
On Sunday morning we will either finish the Trials, depending on how many people have registered, or take the opportunity to explore some interesting tracks on a nearby property, finishing up mid-morning to allow people to either return home or continue on with their journey.
