Welcome 2024 BBQ

The Mini Car Club of NSW is welcoming 2024 with a BBQ lunch at Fagan Park, Arcadia Road Car Park, Galston from 11:30am, 21st January for Mini Club members, friends and Mini enthusiasts.

 

Whilst I have not organised a convoy to Fagan Park, I can recommend a drive via Galston Gorge if you get the opportunity. This road is accessed from Hornsby and follow the signs to Galston.
(Non-members are welcome but please RSVP)

 

You are welcome to arrive any time after 10am as we are aiming to be there to setup the picnic shelter, plus the parking is easier at this time.
We have booked Arcadia 1 picnic shelter. So if it is raining or hot we will have cover.
There will be a BBQ sausage sandwich and drink for $5 per person.

 

There will be a raffle with some great prizes.
Some MCC merchandise will be available or for order.

Note: Parking costs $6/per motor vehicle. When parking in the Fagan Park carparks you must display a valid day pay and display ticket.

Please RSVP by 19th January by completing details in this Online form
