Tassie Travellers St Helen’s Muster – A Coldie but a Goodie

With a number of members travelling on the mainland, it was a small but hardy group of Tassie Travellers who attended the muster at St Helen’s Big 4 Caravan Park in June. The nights were cold but the days were lovely and sunny and some even stepped out in T Shirts!

The sightseeing in the area included a Tagalong to the Loila Weir which is just south of St Helen’s and features beautiful views to the coast, and also an adventure to Eddystone Point, Deep Creek and Ansons Bay, areas which some members had not previously visited.

Of course it wouldn’t be a muster without the food, a shared meal and a Sunday brunch and apparently the best jelly slice in Australia!

The Tassie Travellers welcome any visitors to their state to attend their musters - just check the muster calendar on the website if you are heading their way.

Sydney City Slickers Picnic in the Park

On a dry but cool winter’s day, 58 of our Club members attended the Sydney City Slickers annual Branch Picnic day at the Auburn Botanical Gardens last weekend .  Our Slickers members were joined by several couples from our recently formed branch, the Sydney Freedom Seekers. 

This event was started several years ago and is now a featured event on the Slickers’ calendar.  It provides an opportunity for branch members who are not travelling in June to enjoy the company of other members. Several  branch members delayed their departure from Sydney so they could attend.

As has been the case in recent years, a covered venue was hired and this allowed the event to take place irrespective of weather conditions.  Those attending paid a small donation to partially offset the cost of the venue hire.

Our Slickers’ muster coordinator, Gary, took the opportunity to present the 2019 Muster Calendar to those attending.  It was generally agreed that 2019 looks like an exciting year with a variety of events being offered!

As is the normal case, the six hours allocated for the picnic proved to be well short of the time that is required for all members to engage in conversation and share what they have been doing since their last get together.

All in all, an enjoyable day was had by those attending and it looks like this midyear event will become a permanent feature of the Slickers’ branch calendar.

New Bundaberg branch of the ACC is just ‘awesome’

With a name like Awesome Bundy Cruisers, a new branch of our Club to service RVers living in the Bundaberg and surrounding region is sure to attract attention and become a successful branch.

The Awesome Bundy Cruisers was officially formed in mid-June.  The branch brings the total number of branches in our Club to 52.

“Our Club is delighted to welcome the formation of our 52nd branch,” said our ACC Chairman Craig. “I congratulate and thank our Club’s membership team and our members in Bundaberg who have worked tirelessly to bring the branch to fruition.”

Bargara resident, RVer and ACC Awesome Bundy Cruisers branch convenor Janelle said that inaugural branch members had recently met at the Innes Park Country Club.  “The meeting gave everyone a good chance to get to know each other,” Janelle said.

“We are all very excited about our new Awesome Bundy Cruisers branch of the ACC and we are keen to see our membership grow.  We welcome RVers living in the Bundaberg and surrounding region interested in joining us or finding out more about us to contact the ACC on 1800 734 493.”

“We are really looking forward to our first muster planned for Arvos Campground between Maryborough and Biggenden from 27 to 31 July,” Janelle said.

Craig said that the ACC is one of the largest RV Clubs in Australia, having experienced a 12% increase in membership over the past year.  “Our Australia-wide membership is currently around 5,000 and growing.”

“ACC membership brings with it a huge range of advantages including member benefits, free Farm Stays, and social and fun activities including muster and tagalong events where our members share RVing experiences with like-minded people.”

“We also have an active team who advocate on issues affecting our RV Lifestyle, working to promote and protect it,” Craig said.
