Both the Peak Hill community and Australian Caravan Club (ACC) members are winners after both benefited substantially from the Club’s Peak Hill Chairman’s Muster, ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey declared today after receiving the final report from the Club’s Muster Committee.
Around 60 members in 31 RVs attended the ACC Peak Hill Chairman’s Muster at the Peak Hill Showgrounds from 18 to 23 May 2017.
“During the course of the 5 day muster our members injected almost $17,000 into the Peak Hill community and its surrounds,” Mr Humphrey said. “This represents an average spend of around $540 per RV, which equates to a spend of around $107 per RV per day.”
“While financially supporting local businesses and Clubs, our members were overwhelmed by the warm and friendly reception they received from the local community.”
Over the 5 days of the muster, ACC members dined out, purchased groceries and fuel and other essentials. They visited a local farm, had a tour of The Dish, had a guided tour of Snake Rock, attended a big raffle night at the Peak Hill Ex-Services and Citizens Club, and undertook a ‘Bring out the artist within’ art class with a well-known local artist. Other activities included, barefoot bowls, an historic walk around town, and a sunset tour of a Gold Mine.
Proceeds from the Club’s muster raffle have been donated to the Peak Hill community. “$226 has been presented by our Club to the Frazer Court Refurbishment Committee,” said Mr Humphrey.
“The outcomes from this muster prove that RVers and local communities can both reap the rewards that come when we work together and obtain a beneficial outcome for all of us. Both the Peak Hill community and our Club members came out winners.”
“The ACC would like to express our sincere appreciation and thanks to the Parkes Shire Council, Peak Hill Business and Tourism, Peak Hill Showgrounds and its caretakers who were fantastic hosts, Leighton Davies from the Peak Hill Caravan Park, the local Wiradjuri people, and the many other members of the local community who helped make our muster the success that it was.”
“This muster has been a truly unforgettable experience. Our members who attended will return to their homes in Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales with memories and new friends they will cherish forever.”
“With several locals joining our Club during the course of the muster, all I can say is that the 2017 Peak Hill Chairman’s Muster was a huge success!”
With the Peak Hill muster behind them, the Club and its members are now looking forward to their national muster at Bingara in New South Wales in October.
“Our national muster is the highlight of our Club’s calendar each year and Bingara promises to be an experience not to be missed for both ACC members and the Bingara community.”
“We are continuing to receive a number of enquiries about our RV Industry Workshops which assist communities to take advantage of the expanding RV tourism industry. Our Club is happy to enter into discussions with local authorities and Chambers of Commerce about presenting at Workshops in their communities,” Mr Humphrey said.
Our new branch and club banners are starting to arrive! Here we have the ACC Tropical Tourers branch proudly displaying theirs after enjoying the company of our Queensland membership support representative Dennis and his wife Geraldine on their trip to Townsville. Keep your eye out for our new ACC banners as they are displayed by our branches and Club Officials who are happy for you to join them for Happy Hour or for a chat over a cuppa, or hey, just for a chat and exchange ideas. We are, after all, the ACC, the Club for ALL RVers ...where Friendships and Adventure begin.
When we last reported on the personal travels of John and Kathy, and Graham and Judy, they were heading for Port Augusta SA.
They enjoyed Happy Hour yesterday afternoon at Woomera Travellers Village with Peter and Sandra who are also members of the ACC. With ACC stickers on their RVs, it did not take long for them to find each other in the Park! For Judy and Sandra who used to work together, it was a surprise meeting after 20 years.
That's what's great about the ACC, the Club for all RVers ...where Friendships and Adventure begin ...and friendships also rekindle!
Don’t forget to look out for John and Graham on the road and say hello.
