Dunedin SSE meets

Postby SkylineObsession » Sun Jan 18, 2015 8:21 pm

Hey all.

This year i'm aiming to try have at least one cruise meet every single month instead of wimping out in Winter, so will announce the next meet details below this blabbering each time it comes around.

Any type of car at all welcome to attend (or motorbike, van/truck etc), and the only rules are to please hold off on the skids, speeding etc while you're with us. A group of cars is going to attract attention and we don't want that to be negative attention, nor do we want the Police to stop us. Been organising meets for ten or more years now with no trouble from the Police, so want to keep it that way!

The next meet is posted as a reply to this topic, so keep checking back!

Meets are on rain or shine.

Gore meet, Sunday 19th April

Joining up with a guy running 'Mates Car Cruise' on the third Sunday of every month, and heading down to Gore.

Will be visiting the Mandeville Aviation Museum and then have lunch at The Moth (part of the museum?). Then we'll head to Pioneer Park.

Meet at the Dunedin Ice Stadium carpark between 9-10 am, with a 10am sharp departure.

Next cruise: Sunday 31st May
Leaving 10:30am

Cruising to Balclutha, then to Kaka Point, then back to Clutha and maybe finish up at the Kaitangata BMX track.

Hoose keen? ;) Looks like a nice wee drive according to my trip on Google Maps. Will probably head down the coast through Brighton and Taieri Mouth to get to SH1 after we leave Dunners.

Where are all the Datsuns at! Datsuns paved the way for Nissans, we need to see where it all started and pay our respects!

That looks quite slow compared to how it feels. Then again, i had no cars in front of me. :twisted:
