Teddie's Terrific Tour / Helen's

Happy Holiday to Dalby CIT-IN 2018.

Many people are showing interest in being part of CITIN 2018 at Dalby in Queensland.
For those who will be travelling from the Southern parts of Australia, we are inviting you to join us on "Teddie's Terrific Tour / Helen's Happy Holiday" to be held over 5 days / 4 nights.
Each day is planned to be doing some interesting things and seeing new places, as well as cementing friendships over shared morning tea and lunch each day, pre-dinner drinks and dinners each evening.
There is no actual cost involved to be part of the group, but some extra excursions along the way may attract a modest amount of money.
We will arrive in Dalby on Good Friday 30th March after lunch, ready for the start of the first event of CITIN - Registration.
Interstate people from all states (as well as Victoria) are most welcome to join us along the way.
You will need to book your own accommodation - we have recommended Cabin/Caravan Parks and some motels, phone numbers supplied.
Please make sure that when you phone to book the accommodation you mention that you are part of the Citroen group. 
Also keep in mind that Ian "Steelie" Steele is organising a post Cit-In touring trip for approximately 7 to 10 days.

To All Members,
As  of tomorrow the 1st February you have 28 days to book into the 2018 Cit In being held in Dalby.  Every effort is being made for the 50th Cit In to be the friendliest and most exciting  Cit In ever.  Included in your entry fee will be all meals, except two breakfasts and we have even arranged for you to get those at a very special price, a day visit to the Jondaryan Woolshed, with a sit down lunch, for our show and  shine, entry and meal are included in our event.  Sunday will be a day trip up to the Bunyas and will include a fun “Observation Run’ with a packed lunch supplied.  Also on offer is a 100 ticket raffle for $400 voucher for accommodation in the Bunyas.
Our Cit In will be centred around the Dalby Showgrounds Pavilion which is an excellent entertaining venue, large and comfortable with very good facilities.  It has a commercial kitchen from which our professional caterers will serve our meals.  In addition there is a bar which will be open each evening.  There will be entertainment each night along with,we hope, a couple of guest speakers.
The good news about accommodation is that Kobbers Motel (4669 7488), the one closest to the venue, has opened its books and is accepting booking over the Easter period.
Don’t miss this opportunity, support your Club and join in the one and only 50th Cit In.

From Allen Maze:

      I have recently been alerted to the fact that ‘Online Booking Services’ are showing a shortage of accommodation in Dalby over Easter, this is not true. I have spoken to the lady at the Mid Town Motel and she tells me that she took her bookings off the online services because she was offering a $10.00 discount per night and has plenty or rooms available. The story is similar at Park View Motel.


First update for the ‘Apres Cit-in ‘B’ Tour’

Please note the correction to the SPRINGSURE Caravan Park telephone No.

Correct number is:   4984 1418 

Apologies from Ian.   

After being a bit too slack over the last couple of months I’ve finally got things going. I spent today in maps, notes we took back in August, on the phone & even a couple of emails. Here is a guide of what is planned. Remember it will be school hols. so book early, especially at Carnarvon Gorge. Be sure to mention Citroen Car Club when booking, may even save you a few bucks!! I have asked a couple of places to find the local poet or Slim impersonator to join us around the fire in exchange for a few beers.

 I also had another idea of spending a couple of extra nights & go to Rainbow Beach on the way home. Big coloured sand dunes, real pretty place. I just ran a traction run there, 10 tractions came.

  Keep’em up n pumping Steeley
P S.  It will be handy if those coming had a CB radio, hand held will be better than nothing. Also If you can get hold of three RACQ maps… Brisbane Sunshine Coast, Rockhampton Mackay Gladstone, & South East. they’ll cover where we’re going. Steeley

B Tour……a Tribute to Ron

       Sunday 11th Feb 2018

G’day all. Just a short update
I have added a bit to the name of the run as a small tribute to Ron Purvis, long time & life member of the Qld club.
Sadly Ron recently left us. He was a very keen owner & driver of Cits during the driving period of his 87 years. Ron, along with one of his sons, was with us on the last Apres Cit-in run in Qld & I have no doubt he’d be with us again this year if things didn’t go against him.

Areas of the run have had rain so the scenery will be spectacular

So far I have 8 vehicles starting, surely we can do better than that! 

Make sure you mention ‘Citroen Car Club Run’ when booking accom.

If you have a CB radio, even a hand held with good batteries, bring it along. 

If you can access maps thru your local RAC club get two RACQ maps.”South East Qld’ & ‘Rockhampton/Mackay/Gladstone’

I have contacted all the c’van pks we’re staying at. It appears that not all of you that have contacted me have booked in, remember it is school hols. so you’d better get to it. I was also told the opposite, some have booked but as yet I haven’t been advised directly, PLEASE let me know by email.


Registration closing time is fast approaching so if your coming to

Bonjour Narelle 

The 2017 edition of Le Festival saw thousands of people congregate in South Bank to experience a bit of France and celebrate Bastille Day in style. Now it's that time of year again and we've already started preparing for the 2018 edition. 

Last September, the committee has been reelected and the team is almost unchanged from last year. We are all looking forward to delivering fresh entertainment, new developments and working further on the cultural aspects of the festival and La French Week.

So mark your diaries for the 2018 Le Festival on the 6th to the 8th of July at the South Bank Cultural Forecourt. We're excited to share another great year filled with French frivolities and fun!
