The Land Rover Club of the Australian Capital Territory (LRC ACT) is a family-oriented social and recreational club established in 1969 by a group of Land Rover enthusiasts. Nowadays, the club welcomes owners of all makes of four wheel drive vehicles, not only Land Rovers.
Club members participate in various day, weekend and extended trips, as well as social and community activities. The club serves as a friendly forum for the exchange of knowledge and experience related to four wheel driving. Improving driver skills through formal training, along with associated activities such as map reading, navigation, bushcraft and the correct use of recovery equipment, underpins club activities. We support various charities that are aligned to our activities.
Our ordinary club meetings are held on the first Monday of each month (except January), starting at 7.30 p.m, at the Eastlake Football Club, 3 Oxley Street, Griffith ACT 2603. The club is actually located on the corner of Oxley and Eyre streets. Exceptions are when the first Monday of the month falls on a holiday weekend – the club meets on the following Monday.
Visitors are always welcome to our ordinary meetings and no prior notice or invitation is required – just come along and enjoy the company!
News this week
- Garry Collins has provided a list of upcoming events via the Council of ACT Motor Clubs. These are not LRC events, but they are open to member involvement – for example, a possible display of heritage vehicles at next year’s Canberra Show.
- The LRC Christmas Party at Majors Creek was cancelled due to the nearby bushfires, with several roads closed, including the Kings Highway. A number of members showed up anyway and the kids had a visit by Santa. For Christmas dinner on the Saturday night a dozen or so people made some inroads into the bacon and eggs purchased for the Sunday morning breakfast.
