Manawatu July Run

MANAWATU JULY RUN.
1st August 2021

Ok, Ok, I know it is not actually in July but it is close enough, surely. I need to give people some time to organise themselves.

Meeting place will be :

Railway Station in Palmerston North

Meeting Time will be 10:15 for a 10:30 start.
.



There is plenty of parking here and I am mindfull of the confusion the last time we met in the Square and want to avoid a repeat.
The object of the run is to take a look at a historic site in Whanganui; the Durie St Elevator. I bet a lot of you did not even know this existed, but it is one of the oldest public elevators in NZ., and has recently been done up. Well worth a visit I think, and don't expect a straight run either, Ross and I will find some nice MR2 type roads to get from Palmy to Whanganui. I am not sure about a lunch venue yet. More on that later.
Stop Press.
Lunch is booked at Caroline's Boat House, on the banks of the Whanganui River. Booked for 1:00 pm.

Boosted cars are like hot women.
A little edgy, every guy wants one,
some guys can't handle them,
and if you throw a little alcohol in them they'll rock your world.

Yeah thanks a lot for organising that, Eli and I had a great time. I haven't been down some of those roads in many years. We drove past my childhood home out the back of Halcombe. Nostalgic :)

Sorry I couldn't make this one, I'm time poor presently with my virtual racing commitments. This will likely be a normal occurrence in the Winter months. It looks like you guys had a really good time! :mrgreen:
