Southern Car Enthusiasts Midweek Drive – 1st Wednesday
May 1 @ 10:30 am

The Forecast for the drive and lunch on Wednesday 1 May is a sunny 16 deg.

The arrangements are:

  • Starting at the Rivulet Café, bottom of Anglesea Street, South Hobart, around 10.15am for morning coffee.
  • PARKING – plenty of space in the new parking area so park there if you can, as it’s a wonderful photo opportunity and              leaves spaces closer to the swings etc for the young families.
  • Departing around 11.15am and arriving around 12.15 for lunch.
  • Cost is $30 a head for two courses, a buffet for main and 3-4 desserts (a surprise!!)


Venue clueNo prizes for guessing! We are heading in a South-Easterly direction, been there before.

RSVP required by 5.00pm on Monday 29 April. Please also advise if you wish to be removed from the mailing list.

Please Note:
1. RSVP’s are essential and they must be honoured
, as some venues require payment for no shows, once numbers have been confirmed. So, if you say you are coming and don’t turn up, you are responsible for payment for the meal, if requested by the venue.

2. Please make sure that you check in with the organiser and receive the route instructions at the C3 café, so that we can inform the venue of final numbers before we leave. Due to our growing number of enthusiasts, it may be necessary to cap numbers for some future runs.
If you have any ideas for a run, please talk to one of these organisers- Bob, Lyn, Wal.

3. When leaving the C3 café we nominate a leader and nobody should leave until indicated by the lead car.


I’m away for next few days, so if you have any queries, please contact Bob or John, as per below.

Monthly Midweek Lunch Run – North – 2nd Thurs Each Month

Monthly midweek lunch run for JCCT members

In our new format for the Lunch Run, we will assemble in the carpark at the NAMT in Launceston at around 11.00am for an 11.30am departure.  After greeting each other with appropriate social distancing we will depart for our Run and lunch destination as normal.  This will continue to be the format for future Lunch Runs until further notice.

The new departure time will allow for a slightly longer run, and also help us avoid lunch-hour traffic.

RSVPs are essential for catering purposes, and MUST be made by the Sunday before the event
to Gordon Barnard on 0414 903 791.

Dates:  Second Thursday of each month
