10:00AM Meeting point at Chirnside Park Kmart Auto Car Park

Maroondah Hwy & Black Springs Rd Chirnside Park 3116

Melways page 37, in F5 and G5

11:30AM Leave first meeting point heading to Buxton via Maroondah Hwy

Quick stop at Maroondah Reservoir/Dam to bunch up and let everyone catch up before we hit the Black Spur as a group.

12:30-1:00PM Arrive at Igloo Roadhouse for the famous Buxton Burgers

2:30PM Head back towards Melbourne (if everyone gets through the burgers by this time)

3:00PM Show and Shine, chit chat and brag, photos and vids at Fernshaw Picnic Grounds car park.

4:00PM (or more if needed) Heading back to Melbourne.



Apart from the departure time of 11:30AM, all other times are APPROXIMATES
ONLY and may change throughout the day.

There is always Police presence on the Spur and it is notorious for accidents, be sure to take care through it.

This is a cruise and not a race so enjoy it for what it is, a cruise.

Safe driving and enjoy the day.



LIST OF THINGS TO BRING ARE 2 WAY RADIOS IF YOU HAVE THEM, FULL TANK OF FUEL
ALTHOUGH YOU CAN FILL UP AT BUXTON, PLENTY OF DRINKING WATER TO STAY HYDRATED
DURING THE DRIVE, SOME COOLANT IN CASE THE CAR OVERHEATS AND SOME BASIC TOOLS
IF YOU CAN. ALSO HATS AND SUN SCREEN WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA.
APART FROM THAT BRING AN APPETITE AS THEM BURGERS ARE MASSIVE!!

I've just come back from a mantrip and going to a concert tomrrow night, so think its a bit rude to tell my wife that I'm going for a drive Saturday........
Will see if dad wants to tag along in the Z though.

It is tempting and legal to drive the zed on this cruise now...received from Vicroads the new log book scheme. But the house thing is a sort of a priority.

No Evo I think it's a Lurch initiative. I will be there in the Zed if no rain. If rain then I will come along with a new support vehicle I picked up today.
