What’s On

Queen’s Birthday Weekend – Overnight Run to Northland

The overnight run to Northland postponed from last year is on!!!
Among the fun things planned we will be visiting the Packard Museum and, hopefully, a private collection of eclectic cars.
We have reserved 20 rooms at Settlers Hotel in Whangarei but get in quick. To make a booking contact Settlers, ask for Yana and say you are from the Auckland Mercedes Benz Club. If you wish to stay longer than two nights, I’m sure Settlers will be able to help.
Here is a link to the Settlers Hotel website: https://www.discoveryhotelswhangarei.co.nz/

The plans are still being finalised but it will be a great weekend.
For more information and to register your attendance contact Mike Peters

When:  Saturday & Sunday 4-5 June
