Easter Rally Stratford 2020


It is with sadness that I advise that we have cancelled the 2020 Easter Rally in Taranaki
After discussions with Duncan and Mavis, and watching the Government announcements here in NZ (and overseas) I direct that we cancel the 2020 Easter Rally in Taranaki.
The fast spread of the virus in other countries with exponential increases leads me to the conclusion that NZ will experience a similar rise in infections. Our membership covers a wide spread of ages, with increasing risk with age.
We will see about alternatives to the AGM to cover the Incorporated Societies requirements.
Constitutional items will be held over till a General Meeting can be safely held.
We can look at an alternative event later in the year if conditions are suitable, and members wish to take part.
It is my decision to cancel, so please direct any members with complaints to me.
Thanks for your support.



The 2019 Easter Rally is a celebration of 40 years of the NZMVC. For this momentous occasion, we have chose a memorable location; Waiouru.

We have partnered with Offlimits Charitable Trust. Offlimits was established to raise funds for past and present members of the NZDF. These funds are used to support veterans and serving men and women in their health, welfare, further education and sporting endeavours. The Trust raises this money by running outdoor adventure events in the 63,000 hectares that make up the Waiouru Training Area. Read more [here]

Tony Comber is a Kiwi who likes to keep Jeeps going forever

As a child, Tony Comber was fascinated by the US army jeeps he saw in movies and magazines, so when he had the chance to buy one as an adult, he jumped at the chance.

“I remember picking up a National Geographic magazine when I was in about Standard 6 and it was when America was first going into Vietnam and they had a whole lot of pictures in there of jeeps being unloaded off the aircraft and off the ships.

“Ever since then I have had an interest in American jeeps.” Read more at Stuff [here]
