Saturday, 18 September 2021 - Sunday, 19 September 2021
It has been two years since we drove the Nelson Grössglockner, aka Takaka Hill. After our latest lockdown, it has been hard to confirm a lunch venue however, moving to Level 2+, the fact that we will try to run this event needs to be advertised ASAP. The lunch venue is TBA but we will find some great food in Takaka or Pohara Beach.
This year we have Blenheimers intending to drive over on Saturday afternoon to Collingwood, staying the night to sample Collingwood nightlife (!!) and then to meet up with the Nelsonians on Sunday at lunchtime. Nelsonians will meet at the Riwaka Hotel car park from there, Paul Heywood will lead the Sunday group for an enjoyable spin up the Takaka Hill and down to the lunch venue by 1230. We will find a family-friendly lunch venue so children are encouraged. (if they can cope with the Takaka Hill!!)
Nelsonians will meet at the Riwaka Hotel on SUNDAY 19 September at 1045 for an 1100 departure over the Takaka Hill to meet at our lunch venue at around 1230. (Please note this event meeting place is at Riwaka).
Blenheimers will meet at the Cork’n Keg, Inkerman Street, Renwick on SATURDAY 18 September at 1045 for an 1100 departure. We will drive to Nelson and head over the Takaka Hill, arriving at the Collingwood Park Motel mid-afternoon for check-in. Booking directly with the motel on (03) 524 8499, ( four couples are booked already.)
