65th Anniversary Rally

Due to the presence of Covid-19 in Australia and the ongoing instances of Community Transmissions, we have decided to postpone the 65th Anniversary Rally.

Many entrants come from interstate and given the propensity for State Governments to lock borders with little notice, travellers are very reticent to make commitments in the current climate.  The possibility of quarantine, at very short notice, will affect our numbers and may result in a loss of deposits. As we need accurate numbers to secure accommodation, merchandise and food requirements, the lack of confidence to make travel plans while Covid is still around, will affect our ability to deliver an inclusive rally, so we have chosen to defer.

With a review of the situation later on in the year, we can only hope that this will be presented in 2022.

regards – Mike Canty, Chairperson of 65th Anniversary Committee
