    This is a ways away yet so I expect plenty of you to "save the date". Pretty much everyone who attended the christmas cruise mentioned that we should do it more often, so here we go with an Autumn get together and a cruise on one of NSW best roads.

    Date: Saturday March 23rd

    Address: Meet at Windsor McDonlads Carpark, 242 Windsor Rd (Enter off Windford Dr), Vineyard.
    Time of start: Meet from 9:00 for a 9:30 departure.
    Event Details:

    First Leg
    We'll hang at Grey Gum for approximately 45 minutes to allow people to grab a coffee and a a bite, any stragglers to catch up, and any photos etc. There should be plenty of parking if you don't mind jostling with motorbikes...

    Second Leg

    • 11:15 depart Grey Gum International Cafe
    • Travel via Putty Rd to Milbordale
    • Turn right onto Milbordale Rd towards Broke
    • Turn right onto Wollombi Rd and then immediately left onto Cessnock Rd towards Pokolbin
    • Stay on Broke Rd towards Pokolbin and then arrive at Harrigans Irish Pub for lunch at 12:30
    • See route at https://goo.gl/maps/zXwpLHT49e82
    From here it's a short journey north or south via the Newcastle Link Rd and the M1.

    Approx. Duration:
    All day!

    The Putty Rd is one of the best driving roads in the state, so I hope you can make it! All welcome, with or without Zeds.

    I'm hoping my bottom end will hold up enough to make this! If not I am sure I'll come in something, possibly not a Nissan though :(

    Sounds great Rob, haven't done that road for many years.
    May make the trip up to join in, it's been way too long since I've done a drive with
    any of the Aus 300 group.
    I won't be driving a Zed though :) as I sold it a few years ago now, but I will be driving
    another sporty, all wheel drive sedan. :)
