NZ Datsun Southern Cruise 29th & 30th of April 2017

Postby classicdat » Thu Mar 23, 2017 12:22 pm

Destination: Lake Benmore for lunch, with cruises hopefully starting in the North, South, and East (please feel free to organise a cruise from the coast to complete the points of the compass)
converging on the fantastic roads of the central South Island.
This is your chance to get a cruise going from your area and be part of one of the most enjoyable Datsun Events of the year.

Lake Benmore is a beautiful spot for photos and the settled North Otago weather has not let us down yet. After lunch we cruise down the far side of Lake Aviemore, and more photos along the way.

The day will end up in Oamaru, where we will be hosted by the locals. These North Otago roads are just amazing and a joy to drive, you won't be disappointed.

Post you local cruise details and I will include them in this post, I'll kick it off with the Christchurch details.

Meet & greet:
Yaldhust pub car park, West Coast Road. 8 till 8.15am

Depart: 8.15am. (probably won't wait for latecomers, just let them catch up)
First we head south via the inland scenic route to Rakaia Gorge and on to Fairlie to meet up with South Canterbury crews.

Timaru Meet:
New World Timaru 9:15 am Cruise to Fairlie to meetup with the Christchurch cruise. about 10:30

Meet:
Any cruisers wanting to meet up along the way from the West Coast, Ashburton and Timaru or points in between just add to your post where and we can make a when.
The goal is to meet with the Southern Cruise in Omarama before lunch.

Meet:
(Open to Suggestions) in Omarama (then cruise to Otematata to meet the locals (and hopefully a Dunedin Crew) and on to Lake Benmore) for lunch about 1 - 1.30, where the cruise will start in earnest.

Evening and Sunday morning details to come: But will hopefully get some photos with the backdrop of the old town.

There are many interesting drives in the Oamaru area, there could be options for Sunday before we all cruise on home again, feel free to post your thoughts for Sunday, your idea might be the winner everyone is looking for.

This was an excellent drive last year, everyone who went raved about it, get the days sorted and join us whether you are from North, South (Get a cruise organised and the details can be posted here), or central don't miss this opportunity to put home and the mundane well behind you and get out into our awesome country.
