Planned to be simply a meet and greet evening. Entrants having arrived in Port Lincoln during the day would meet at the Port Lincoln Yacht Club from about 5.00pm onwards to register. Dinner will be provided that evening to those who have registered. Socialising and enjoyment is the theme for the night, and also for the remainder of your stay. You will during the evening be provided with more details of coming days activities.
This format will continue on each of the following nights including the final dinner on Sunday after the Show & Shine.
Thursday 19th October:
We will keep this day as a Port Lincoln town event only – no long drives. Should anyone need mechanical assistance etc, this is the day to solve the problem.
Visit Peter Teakle Winery to view the outstanding award-winning facility, and Peter’s exotic car collection. Tour and explore the Axel Stenross Maritime Museum. Depending upon the number of persons involved the group may be divided.
Meet again at the PLYC for evening meal and next day’s information.
Friday 20th October:
160+ km – 100mls. Depart Port Lincoln for Tumby Bay (49km), stop at Caravan and Travellers’ parking bay on the foreshore. Meet with members from the Road Runners Car Club based in Tumby Bay and enjoy a morning tea hosted by them and others from the progress association.
Move along to a local museum / shed visit. View the street art and silo art upon leaving the township and through the scenic Yallunda Flat Hills to the Yallunda Flat Show and Picnic Grounds (20km). A BBQ lunch prepared by LAC members will be provided here.
Following lunch, an 18km easy downhill drive to the verdant farming plains of Cummins. Here we will visit a Cummins farmer, and LAC member’s extensive car collection and display. Leaving Cummins, entrants may visit the Cummins Triangle display area to view interesting mosaic art and a sculpture depicting the farming history of the area.
A 42km drive south, the Tod Highway meets with the Flinders Highway. Here, those wishing to visit the seaside town of Coffin Bay would turn right (24km), others may turn left and continue on to Port Lincoln (24km).
Meet at PLYC for evening meal, and next day’s information.
Saturday 21st October:
Site visits today will also only be in and around Port Lincoln, such as Kotz’s engine museum. We will try to finish the day's activities early so that you may find time to prepare your pride for the Show & Shine on Sunday.
Meet again at the PLYC for dinner in the evening, and for information relating to Sunday’s Show & Shine display arrangements.
Sunday 22nd October:
Our Show & Shine Day is held on the foreshore lawns adjacent to the PLYC. We aim to feature the vehicles of those entrants who have made the effort to visit Port Lincoln from afar. You will be welcome to display your Club’s banner/flag. Other displays will include heavy commercial vehicles, motorcycles, and general interest hobby activities such as radio-controlled model aircraft.
Depending upon favourable weather conditions you may also witness a LAC member, and an aerobatic award winning pilot, displaying his skills overhead.
