Following the success of the rally at Albury in 2015 to celebrate 100 years of the Morris Cowley, it has been decided to hold a similar event bi-annually in the years between Morris National Rallies.

The rally will be open to all Morris pre-1932 vehicles.    These vehicles are vintage Bullnose and Flatnose MG, Bullnose and Flatnose Oxford and Cowley, vintage Minors, Isis, Empire and Oxford Six.

The 2017 Rally is being held in Wagga Wagga commencing with check-in by 5:00pm Monday 28th August at Rally HQ at the Mercure Motel, Wagga Wagga.

This is an event not to be missed if you have one of the eligible vehicles.   There will be comfortable drives through beautiful countryside sharing time with like minded people and enjoying good food, good activities and, especially, good company.

We hope to see you in Wagga Wagga on Monday 28 August 2017.   We have been advised to expect frosty mornings and cool days, so bring your scarfs, hats and winter woollies.

Accommodation

We have been able to negotiate an extremely good deal with the Mercure Motel, Wagga Wagga of $135 per room per night instead of the $199 usually charged.   We ask that all entrants should stay here in order to maintain this quoted price.   This also allows us to be together rather than scattered around the city.
