Over $37,000 was injected into the economy of the Victorian township of Elmore and its surrounds over 5 days of an Australian Caravan Club Chairman’s Muster last month.
ACC Chairman Craig Humphrey said that an interesting programme had seen 150 Club members travel to Elmore to attend the five day muster at Elmore Events Centre from 8 to 13 March 2018.
“The Elmore Chairman’s muster provided an atmosphere for Club members to chat informally with myself and three other board directors about Club matters,” Mr Humphrey said. “Five Happy Hours, a First Timer’s Afternoon Tea, a catered dinner, and morning teas throughout the muster provided ample opportunity for this.”
The Mayor of the City of Greater Bendigo, Councillor Margaret O’Rourke, officially opened the muster.
Over the course of the muster, there were a number of organised activities. These included a tour of the H.V. McKay Rural Discovery Centre and the Port of Echuca Discovery Centre. A Murray River cruise on the M.V. Mary Ann Cruising Restaurant, and a visit to a Beer Shed and Heritage Farm Museum. The members also supported a fundraising breakfast cooked by the local Lions Club, plus there were many speakers and presentations for the members.
ACC members are now turning their focus onto the Club’s 2018 National Muster to be held in Denmark, Western Australia in October this year. “This will be an historic event for our Club as it will be our very first National Muster in Western Australia,” Mr Humphrey said.
The event concluded with the announcement of Murray Bridge in South Australia as the venue for our 2019 Chairman’s Muster.
