TAMWORTH ROUND UP 2018!!!
« on: September 21, 2017, 05:00:13 PM »
Yes, Mokes Inc, KMC and I are doing it all again (with a little help from our friends  ;) :D)

We messed up the regular bi-annual schedule last time when we changed it from the Oct/Nov event that it has always been, to April 2017. While April worked OK, we have decided we much prefer it later in the year, so we're dragging it back into October. Seems too long to wait another two years for the next one, so we're doing it in 2018!

As in all previous years, it will be a five day event from Wednesday to Sunday, with a short day on Sunday giving people the option of heading home after lunch to front up to work Monday, or for the lucky ones, there's time for a rest up on Sunday afternoon before heading home Monday.

Dates for next year's event will be October 24-28, 2018

We never announce dates until we are sure of ourselves, so these are now set in stone. Feel free to arrange your holidays, book accommodation  etc if you need to do it this far out.

Austin Tourist Park will again be taken over to act as Moke Central. Whilst they have always looked after us very well, this year they have actually offered a set structured discount offer for all attendees who stay 5 nights or more. I'll be posting details of the offer up shortly in a separate post, but there's something for everyone from the unpowered campers to those who prefer the deluxe holiday cabins.

As always, the Forum will be the primary information point to keep up with all things Round Up, but we do have a Facebook page that we will be updating regularly for those who like to play over there, and of course our own dedicated website http://www.mokeroundup.com.au which will also be updated as we go along.

More info to come soon, but for now you all need to start thinking about holiday dates and doing whatever you have to do (no details please  :-X ) to convince the powers that be of the necessity of being in Tamworth with your Moke in October 24-28, 2018

Something important for those who may book accommodation at Austin before Newie has published some more details :
please book by ringing Austin Tourist Park because all the cabins have been blocked out online (so that they are reserved for Mokers).

By all accounts, the Mokin' Jervis Bay event was a resounding success with a great time had by all. KMC and I unfortunately missed out due to prior commitments at the time, but know plenty of Mokers who were lucky enough to get there and have heard nothing but praise for the great time they had.

The Moke Round Up team would like to offer our congratulations on a job well done to Col, Jan, the Mazys and the countless others who we know would have pitched in to help make the event the success it was. There is a LOT of work involved before and during such an event, but hopefully Col and his team found it all worthwhile at the end of the day and will consider another one at some point.

That said, It's now time to start getting ready for the next big event on the Moke calendar - Moke Round Up 2018 in Tamworth!

Six months from today on Wednesday Oct 24th, we'll be off and running again with another set of great drives around the Tamworth district and another chance to catch up with fellow Moking friends, old and new. Six months seems like a long time, but will go very quickly, so if you haven't done so already, it really is time to start organising time off, accommodation etc and making sure your Moke "to do list" is at least partially ticked off.

We will be opening registrations in the next couple of days, so keep an eye out of that.

In the meantime though, if you're planning on coming and haven't organised a bed yet, you may want to revisit the accommodation page for details on that.

https://www.mokeforum.com.au/index.php?topic=13203.0

We can heartily recommend staying at Moke Central if you want the full Moke Round Up experience, but although there are plenty of cabins available at the moment, it's advisable to get in ASAP and book one as there are numerous different types designed to suit everyone from solo travellers, to large families or groups of friends. There are also different types to suit different budgets, from basic economy to very nice new holiday cabins. It's first in, best dressed, so it pays too get in early.

Good to hear Adrian. You must have your confidence up for the dirt roads after all the mud running in Wallangarra  ;)

Hopefully we will see you for a little longer this time than the flying visit last year?
