Caravans head to Kingaroy for chairman’s muster
ABOUT 200 people in about 100 caravans will descend on Kingaroy next month for the 2017 Australian Caravan Club’s Chairman’s Muster.
Chairman Craig Humphrey said the chairman’s muster would be held at the Kingaroy Showgrounds from March 9– 14.
“Registrations for the Kingaroy chairman’s muster have far exceeded expectations,” Mr Humphrey said.
“So far, we have over 200 people coming in 105 RVs and registrations have not yet closed.
“I have to say, the attractions that the South Burnett region has to offer have sparked quite a wave of interest amongst members.”
Mr Humphrey said as well as enjoying the usual happy hour where members would share friendship, swap travelling tales and exchange ideas about anything from safety to technical tips, members attending the muster would have plenty to see and do during their stay.
“Activities on the proposed agenda include a night visit to the Kingaroy Observatory, a visit to the Endeavour biscuit factory, attending South Burnett Wine and Food in the Park, a catered dinner, and morning tea at Mulanah Gardens,” Mr Humphrey said.
“Our club is very grateful to the support that we have been receiving from the South Burnett Regional Council, Kingaroy Show Society and the people of the Kingaroy community who have provided tremendous assistance to our muster committee with the organisation of this event.
“The proceeds of any raffles will be donated to LifeFlight.”
“Regions in which our club chairman’s and national musters are held receive an economic boost as members shop, dine out, buy fuel, purchase groceries souvenirs and other necessities, and visit local attractions.
“Our club data shows that over the past five years, ACC members attending our annual musters have injected in excess of $ 1,020,000 shared over the five communities where the musters have been held.
The club hold two chairman’s musters and one national muster each year.
The second muster will take place in May at Peak Hill, New SouthWales.
The national muster which includes the club annual general meeting, will be held at Bingara, New SouthWales, in October.
