Car­a­van club is look­ing to ex­pand its Rochy mem­ber­ship base

Campaspe News - - NEWS -

THE South­ern Rive­rina Car­a­van Club mem­bers might spend a lot of time on the road – but like they mak­ing those trips with friends.

Which is why the club – founded in 2001 – is look­ing for more peo­ple to join.

Club book­ing sec­re­tary Kaye Wendt said SRCC started when a few like-minded fam­i­lies want­ing the free­dom of week­end get-to­geth­ers on the road with their car­a­vans and en­joy­ing the friend­ship a group with sim­i­lar in­ter­ests can sup­ply.

Kaye said ini­tially most mem­bers had chil­dren – cel­e­brated in the club motto ‘The Friendly Fam­ily Club’ – but as the years passed and the kids grew up the club was left with a lot of par­ents.

None of which she said stops those who are still mem­bers en­joy­ing the week­end ral­lies.

“We would cer­tainly wel­come any new mem­bers and par­tic­u­larly those with fam­i­lies to help re­vi­talise our club,” Kaye said.

“We cur­rently have mem­bers from Rochester, Kyabram, Echuca, Moama, Ton­gala, Lee­ton, Ber­ri­gan, Barham, Wagga, Coleam­bally, Grif­fiths, Corowa, Wah­gun­yah – and as­sorted towns in be­tween,” she said.

“The club usu­ally runs seven ral­lies dur­ing the year in and around the ar­eas where mem­bers are lo­cated – nor­mally from Septem­ber to May.

“We don’t have win­ter ral­lies as most mem­bers mi­grate to warmer cli­mates then.”

“Mem­bers are en­cour­aged to sub­mit any of their favourite des­ti­na­tions for fu­ture ral­lies and all sub­mis­sions will be con­sid­ered,” she said.
