The first post COVID lockdown outing for the MCCV:

A merry time was had by all – Morris Car Club of Victoria Christmas Function

  • Location: Plenty Gorge National Park / Le Page Homestead.
  • 28 November 2020

After two years of fine dining for our Christmas lunch we took matters into our own hands, literally, and self-catered for what turned out to be only the second event for the year – perhaps that is why it felt so special. Personally, it was great to catch up with people after such a long lay-off.

There were more cars there than a show-n-shine (see pics) and more laughter and chatting than I have heard for a while.


Special thanks for Club Captain Tony Bullen for suggesting the site which worked out really well. We didn’t have to yell over the noise of a busy restaurant and no one was worried about staring looks from other diners.

  • Marilyn and Tony Bullen

If you are interested in participating in a run to Apollo Bay in Feb, please let Tony know ASAP (it’s a simple as an sms. Also, if you liked the self-catered approach for a run, also drop Tony a note via sms or email, if many of you did we can plan more this way for the year.
