Following the National Muster in Denmark WA, ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey announced that the 2020 ACC Chairman’s Muster would be staged in Charters Towers QLD from 14-19 May 2020.
“I am very pleased that the Charters Towers Regional Council has confirmed that the Club will be able to stage the 2020 Muster at a time that will allow those members who travel north each year to plan their attendance. I am also announcing this now to ensure that members have plenty of time to make their travel plans”, said Mr Humphrey.
This will be a great opportunity for the local region, as ACC members spend up to $100 per day when travelling and, from previous Chairman’s Musters, the Club has injected up to $55,000 into local communities.
The Muster will be held at the Charters Towers showground with facilities available to host at least 70 RV’s.
“I am also greatly encouraged from the openness and warm reception that the Club’s representatives have received from the Council and the local community. Nothing has been too much trouble and, as we move forward, I’m sure this partnership will deliver a great muster for members to enjoy in a wonderful region of North Queensland. I must also thank the representatives of the ACC Tropical Tourers branch – Judy and Linda – for working so closely with the Council to confirm the Muster” added ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey.
Charters Towers Regional Council’s Deputy Mayor, Cr Sonia Bennetto welcomed the announcement. “We are thrilled with this decision to stage the 2020 ACC Chairman’s Muster in our region.
“Our region has a rich history, with many grand buildings and two national parks for ACC members to explore. Members can enjoy inland fishing, boating and canoeing on the Burdekin River, or visit the World War II bunkers on Towers Hill.
“Other attractions include the Venus Gold Battery, the Stock Exchange Arcade and the World Theatre.” said Cr Bennetto.
