5th Update, Newsletter, July 2020
Dear fellow Roverites,
Despite all the hard work and planning for ROVE2020, we are saddened to advise that we have no option but to postpone this year’s event. The good news is that ROVE2020 will become ROVE2021 with the new dates being 22 to 25 October 2021.
Given the current upsurge in COVID-19 infections, state border closures and the commentary and information that we are receiving from government and health officials, we have no possibility to predict what will unfold in the coming months. Our focus has, and will continue to be, the health and safety of all our Rover friends.
We know you will understand our decision, given that none of us have ever experienced the fluid and challenging times that come with a pandemic. We sincerely hope that ROVE2021 can go ahead as planned. As you will appreciate as we move into 2021, our plans could be subject to change.
As the months unfold, we will continue to keep in touch with further updates.
Our plans are very advanced, and we are pleased to advise that all our activities can be transferred to the corresponding days in October 2021. Those of you who have booked accommodation in Victor Harbor, from our inquiries we are assured they will transfer your booking to 2021 without additional cost. All you need to do is contact them to make the necessary booking change.
Be assured that we will do everything in our power to ensure the 2020 pricing carries over for ROVE2021. As you will appreciate, we are unable to secure any guarantees for pricing to be held firm from our venues and suppliers at this time. It is our intention to do as much as we can to keep ROVE2021 costs as close as possible to the 2020 costs.
So, for the time being please do not forward your final payment. We will advise any payment amount change and a new final payment date early next year.
If you find you are unable to join us in 2021, you can request that we refund your deposit or full payment.Contact the club for details.
It would not be a ROVE without you all. We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
Keep safe and well.
Formed in 1977, the Rover Car Club of South Australia celebrated its 40th Anniversary in 2017. Since its inception it has grown in member size and is a club that is highly regarded by its peers within Australia. Over its 40-year history it has been instrumental in launching some great events here in South Australia, the main one being in 1986 when its British Breakfast would ultimately become the now famous All British Day held each February.
The club members have a great array of vehicles manufactured by Rover from the 1920s through to the last of “Britain’s Finest”, the ‘75’ in 2004. The greatest number of Rovers in the club are the P5/P5B series with no less than 21 great examples. It is interesting to note that the P4 or “Auntie” model has grown to 12 fine examples. Of the post war Rover P3, which celebrates its 70th Anniversary in 2018, the club enjoys 15 of these fine vehicles in its fleet (0.2% of Rover’s production!). Not forgetting the Land Rover, which also celebrated its 70th Anniversary in 2018, the club having a good representation of these from over the years.
During each year the club hosts a great cross section of ‘fun runs’ and events for members along with guest presenters at its monthly general meetings. Our members are progressive, social and accepting of all new members who share the Rover passion.
Please enjoy our website which highlights not only our club and its activities through great stories and pictures but also “Britain’s Finest”, Rover vehicles. If you too share our interest and passion for these wonderfully, well engineered advanced in their time, British motor vehicles then why not contact us now as we are offering a great incentive to join our club. 12 month membership is only one dollar, with all of the benefits, see our membership page HERE for more information. I hope to see you at one of our great events soon.
Join us in “Rovering On”
