HOSTS: Grahame & Anne Vaughan

Preamble

Welcome and please read carefully.

An anticlockwise trip around interesting parts of Tassie over 8 days finishing for the start of Cit-in 2024 in Devonport.

Ideally suited to Traction's and will celebrate the theme & 90th Birthday, so please drive yours!!

Other models all welcome.

Accommodation is TIGHT and will be first in best dressed, so book ASAP

So, get together with your friends and share, IF POSSIBLE, as cheaper and helps with accommodation tightness.

Telephone or email the venues; if you look on Websites may appear "booked out" that is because it is being held for us.

You will need to Register with me to get updates [see later]

Apologies if I mislead you re run detail when chatting before, but venue changes happened. So recheck please.

Book & pay yourselves for all accommodation
