It’s official! A celebration of 50 years of the Morgan Owners’ Club of Australia will be held in Bathurst over 4 days, from Thursday 30th October through to Sunday 2nd November, 2008.
We will be calling on Morganeers throughout Australia and even internationally to gather at Bathurst to celebrate this Golden Anniversary and all that ownership of this wonderful marque encompasses.
Mark these dates in your diary. At the Muster in 2001, 130 Morgans gathered and this time we will be expecting even more of “The First and Last of the Real Sports Cars” present.
Why the Golden Muster? Because in 2008 it will be 50 years (the Golden Anniversary) since the establishment in 1958 of the Morgan Owners’ Club of Australia, affectionately known as MOCA. As everyone will know, MOCA was founded by the late Ken Ward and there is sadness knowing that he will not be there to head the celebration. However, we look forward to an esteemed group of Foundation Members and Life Members being present at the “top table” during the celebrations.
Why Bathurst? Firstly it has proved itself as a fine venue to convene a motoring enthusiasts gathering. We had our inaugural Muster there in 2001 and it was a tremendous success with 130 Morgans and close to 300 Morganeers present. We expect to attract participants from all states of Australia, also New Zealand, and possibly Canada and North America to the event, and Bathurst is a relatively central location in that respect. The city is well served with plenty of good quality accommodation and function venues and of course there is the famous Mt. Panorama circuit upon which we hope to run an event suitable for all Morgans.
