ACT RTA Move to Woden


The ACT Road User Services staff from Dickson Motor Registry (the Registration and Driver Licences divisions) have been relocated to new offices at the Cosmopolitan Building just outside Woden Plaza. This building is adjacent to the Commonwealth Bank on the open square as you exit the shopping centre to the north (if you come up the stairs from the bus area, it is on the right). 
 
The new Motor Vehicle Inspection Station facilities and building at Hume are well advanced, and should be operational during May this year.

Gunning Tiddlers and Oldies Rally - Saturday 29 April 2017



I wish to extend an invitation for members of your club to join us on Saturday 29 April 2017 for the running of our Tiddlers and Oldies Rally and would appreciate if you could bring to their attention the attached entry form and event details.

We learned much last year in running a tiddlers only event and have further challenged ourselves this year by including machines (any size) up to 1930. This in part is a result of a portion of the route travelling over the first Australian TT course run in 1914. It's an attempt to encourage owners of these oldies to have a run in an event that doesn't see them "left in the dust" of more modern bikes.

Given Gunning's close location to Canberra and Goulburn we expect most of the entrants will travel to the event on the morning and head home after the run. We have tried to facilitate this: the event is limited to 1 day, travelling approximately 100 km with lunch and the presentations to be finished by about 3.00 pm.

Therefore, we have not ventured into accommodation options etc on the information sheet. However, if your members do wish to attend and not have a very early start there is plenty of camping sites available on the Gunning Showground. There is limited accommodation at the Pub and Motel, although both enjoy high levels of occupancy most weekends. I suggest, the better option for hotel/motel accommodation will be Yass, which is 40 or so km west of Gunning or Goulburn, which is about 60 km east of Gunning.

GHMC is a small club and an even smaller number of us in the club have an interest in motorcycles; so we are limiting the number of entries to ensure we can handle the organisation and running of a successful rally.
