The Australian Caravan Club (ACC) is delighted to welcome 19 new members who joined at the 2017 Mackay Home Show and Caravan, Camping Expo held at the Mackay Showgrounds last weekend.
“On behalf of all members of our Club, a very big welcome to our new members from Mackay and its surrounding regions,” our Chairman Craig Humphrey said today. “I encourage you all to take advantage of the many benefits that membership of our Club brings.”
“19 new members is a fantastic outcome and the result of a lot of hard work volunteered by a number of our members.”
The new members have all also joined the ACC Sugar City Pioneers branch.
“We would like to extend our special thanks to Queensland membership support representative Dennis Mulholland, together with Paul Eyles, John and Jo Hocking, John Mallett, Lesley Patswald, Roy Tungate, Ron Laffin, Ross Anderson, Alan Jorgensen, Graham Laister, Barry and Shirley Killen, and Martin Casey from our Sugar City Pioneers Branch all of whom donated time over the duration of the Expo to manage the stand.”
“Our new members will now be able to take advantage of member benefits available from almost 600 businesses around Australia, of staying as a guest with one our member Hosts at one of our Farm Stays, of becoming involved in one of our dynamic committees, and chatting with other members on the members’ forum on our Club’s website to name but a few.”
“In addition, the ACC Sugar City Pioneers branch holds regular musters and our Club has its national muster in October at Bingara New South Wales.”
“Next year we have a chairman’s muster planned for early 2018 and the national muster in in Denmark Western Australia.”
“As a member of our Club you are automatically entitled to attend the muster of any branch in Australia.”
This is the first major recruitment event held since the Club’s Target 500 Campaign aimed at membership recruitment and retention commenced on 1 May 2017.
“Members are reminded that for every new member recruited, the recruiting member will receive a $25 fuel voucher during the course of the campaign which runs until 1 May 2018,” Mr Humphrey said.
After attending the very wet Mackay Home Show and Caravan, Camping Expo last weekend, our ACC Membership Team are taking a personal trip up to Townsville after a stop off at Bowen for a couple of nights relaxing at Wangaratta at the Beach Caravan Park, right next door to the golf course. Great ocean views. In Townsville, Dennis and Geraldine will be staying at the Magnetic Gateway Park 25-28 May 2017. They’d love you to pop in and say G'day - just look for the Club sign on the Pajero.
Two of our volunteer Club Officials John and Graham are taking time out and doing a personal trip with Kathy and Judy and heading North to Darwin. They spent last night at Cadell Recreational Grounds on the banks of the Murray River in South Australia.
Here’s John this morning showing off his ACC car magnet. Our duo plan to spend the next 2 nights at Port Augusta. If you come across John and Graham, please say hello. They may be on a personal trip, but they are happy to have you join them for Happy Hour or to chat to you about our Club, the Club for ALL RVers …where Friendships and Adventure begin.
