Wheels in motion for club's Rock Up Day

THE Stanthorpe Historic Vehicle and Machinery Group is getting ready for this year's Rock Up Day.

Members and the general public are welcome to join the fun get-together and to display their historic wheels on the green at The Summit Bowling Club on Sunday, May 27.

On display will be historic vehicles, tractors and vintage stationary engines.

The event will start at 9am and run to about 1pm.

"It is an easy casual-going day and people can come and go as they feel,” organiser Garry Ellis said.

"The Rock Up Day is a way of allowing members to drive their vehicles that have historic registration.”

The Rock Up Day will involve eye-catching vehicles, snacks and refreshments.

"It will probably be a mix of 1950s, '60s and '70s stuff,” Mr Ellis said.

"There will be tea, coffee, a barbecue operating and The Summit Bowling Club itself will open its bar from 10am.”

There will be no entry fee involved.

"All people have to do is rock up on the day with the vehicle they would like to display,” Mr Ellis said.
