    May Members Meeting with Mothers Car Care

    Tuesday, 7 May 2019 | 7.30 pm 

    Shannons Insurance
    40 Corporate Drive, Heatherton
     

    We can all wash our cars but with a little bit of effort a lot more can be done to make our cars look their best.  The key is using the correct products and tools and knowing how to use them.


    Mothers are well known as suppliers of quality car care products and tools, including their Wax Attack Lithium battery powered random orbital polisher. 

    If you don't know what that means, here is your chance to find out why you should!

    Even if you are not into detailing there will be plenty of useful things to learn.

    Mothers will instruct and inform on their range which includes exterior and interior care.

    Of special interest to many will be a hands on demonstration of plastic headlamp restoration/cleaning/chip removal. Something we'll probably all need sooner or later.

    Ample time will be devoted to questions and answers, the more questions the better.

    Plus time to chat as usual.

    Murray - Silos - Grampians Weekend with Club MINI

     8 - 10 June 2019

    Starting point: Essendon BMW,                                                               
    1 Centro Circuit, Essendon Fields

    What better thing to do on a long weekend but join your fellow members on a fantastic weekend away experiencing the Australian Silo Art Trail. 

    Stating at Essendon BMW with coffee and cake we will then begin our weekend. 

    This is a joint drive of BMW Drivers Club Melbourne and clubMINI Victoria. The event is open to financial members of these clubs - along with family members and significant others.

    The central feature of the trip is the Silo Art Trail in North-West Victoria.

    We’ll leave from Essendon BMW/MINI on Saturday morning for a drive up to the Murray River at Barham.  On the way we’ll stop off in some historic towns and even drive up a historic hill climb.  That night’s motel is right near the Murray River in Barham, with a little time to explore along the riverfront and nearby lakes.

       

    On Sunday we can visit a Catalina flying boat museum in a most unlikely location, stop off at a salt lake, and then head along the Silo Art Trail.  We finish the day at a motel in Horsham with the option, if time permits, of a quick jaunt along the highway to the Pink Lake near Dimboola.

    Monday takes us through the Grampians, with a mix of great driving roads and equally great scenery.  After lunch we’ll cruise back home.
