Here is the itinery to date:-
Friday – arrival day (some arrive Thurs) with Camel Racing on in Forbes during the day on Friday and that would be available for those already there. Friday night the usual bbq at Plainsman Motel, byo food & drink.
Saturday – First up a welcome by the Local Mayor (apparently the road will be closed off for the occasion). Then a drive to Eugowra for morning tea (murals on many buildings around town), then on to Manildra where lunch will be in the local hall (lunch supplied by the local school P&C), then to an old movie theatre for a movie and afternoon tea here I think. Drive back to Forbes for dinner and AGM.
Sunday – a drive to Parkes to the Museum and then on to Parkes Satellite Station where we will have lunch in the cafe there. Back to Forbes for the usual swap meet. I think dinner tonight will not be an organised affair.
Monday – Not sure about this but think that there is a great car museum in Forbes and sure we will be visiting there Monday.
This is the basic program, may change a little. Linda & I are going to Forbes in mid October to meet with Rex & Heather Veal to finalise the program and costings ready for the Fourword in December.
We have been notified by the Plainsman Motel (Ph 02 6852 2466) in Forbes that they will start to give rooms to other people outside Renault Register at the end of September. There has been a change of management at the Motel and our name was not noted as a booking. We have a list of names of those already booked (see below), if you think you have booked and your name does not appear then you need to contact them and to make sure they have your name. Please mention you are with the Renault Register booking.
The original price given by the Motel per night was $128 but they have reduced that slightly to $118.

Just a reminder that on Monday night we have our AGM. No need to be shy as some committees never meet! So please feel free to nominate yourself if you are interested.
Attached is a copy of my brilliant AGM Minutes from last year so we don’t have to read them in their entirety and send members off to sleep. If you know of any mistakes in there let me know to save me from a flogging from our President.
So, come along and enjoy the show.
