 Important Urgent Notice

Coronavirus (COVID-19) as it affects  MGCC GEELONG

The Executive Committee met last evening as we face constantly changing circumstances related to COVID-19.  It’s impact on the community, the membership demographics and the evolving risks for members participating in meetings and events was considered.  It is the collective responsibility of everyone to ensure that we act with a sense of urgency and responsibility to both ourselves and those around us in an effort to minimise the transmission and impact of the virus.  

It was therefore decided:

  • To cancel all club  meetings and  events  until further notice.

The above site gives you all the information you should need to know about the Australian and Victorian Government directives and information re the Covid-19 virus.  Click on it to go to the website.

URGENT - Re: Club Permit Renewals.

As the restrictions grow for COVID-19, there has been some confusing messages from Vic Roads.  The latest information is that they remain open to handle Club Permit payments, BUT you should follow the procedure below:-

  • The process for Club Permit Renewals is now:
    When you receive your renewal, post it to the Club’s post box along with your completed Vehicle Condition Declaration ( https://www.mgccgeelong.com.au/?page_id=11 ) and a return envelope  to “Club Permit, PO Box 296, Geelong, VIC 3220”. Please do not decide to visit Lawrie to get your renewal signed – It must be sent by the post.
  • Your Club Permit will be signed and retuned by post.
  • The authorised Club Permit renewal should then either be posted to VIC Roads, along with a cheque for payment to: VicRoads, GPO Box 1644, MELBOURNE, VIC  3001 or you can visit their offices.

VIC Roads generally sends out renewal notices 6 to 8 weeks prior to their renewal date, so there is plenty of time to complete this process, but to avoid the stress of having your Club Permit expire, please start this process as soon as you receive your renewal.

First established in 1973, our club boasts a membership of over 500. Owning an MG is not a prerequisite and anyone is welcome to join. The MG's in the club range from a beautifully restored PB through to the modern MGF, and there is a healthy mix of other classic cars amongst our ranks - Healeys, Jaguars, Triumphs and so on. If you are a classic car lover and want to share your passion, consider joining our club. The club prides itself on its friendly social atmosphere. The club holds regular monthly meetings, and issues a monthly magazine free as part of the membership. We meet at 7:00pm on the first Tuesday of every month. The clubrooms are at the Geelong Traffic Safety Centre, 94 Breakwater Rd, Breakwater, opposite the Geelong Showgrounds. For a google map of our Clubrooms location see our CONTACTS page.
