Easter Rally Waiouru 2019

NZMVC’s premier annual event.

 

NZMVC 40th Anniversary Easter Rally

 

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

To make this event the success we hope it to be, 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. Check them out on social media for an insight into the awesome events they run. Having taken part in one of their events, I can hand on heart say they truly do a great job at it, as you will all find out this Easter!

We want this to be a celebration of the family atmosphere that has made this Club what it is today. Please bring along the whole family and all your friends too! The more the merrier, and it’s a great way to showcase this awesome Club to prospective new members too!

Rally Badge

This year, we have avery special rally badge designed by Taranaki Young Gun Tylah Cooper. You will note that there is no box to tick or price associated with the rally badge. It was decided that being 40 years of the NZMVC, we would provide this stunning badge at no cost to all participants of the 2019 Easter Rally.

So, look out for Tylah’s masterpiece in your rally pack!

All types of vehicles are welcome and will be catered for.

If you do wish to bring a large vehicle, please note that it must fit through a standard farm gate.
