This year's event, as always is the last weekend in July; held on Saturday and Sunday 30/31 July at Pimpama (Qld) in conjunction with the “South Coast Restoration Society” annual show. We are fortunate that this year, ATCS is able to use a good portion of the "Men's Shed" to accommodate our displays.
ATCS Co-ordinating Committee contact details
The South Coast Restoration Society hold their annual rally at their leased property at Heritage Park, Pimpama.
This is located midway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, approximately 50km South from Brisbane, and approx 4km North of Dreamworld.
Driving from the North or the South, take Exit 49 from the Motorway - signs will guide the visitor from there.
A courtesy bus service to and from Ormeau railway station will also operate on the rally weekend.
What you will see (Past year's SCRS Flier and Home Page)
This show will provide a unique opportunity for telephone collectors to view the results of huge restoration works carried out on a wide range of early machinery of all types - the following thumbnails are pictures with kind permission from Reg Schuster's collection.
The rally committee (SCRS) will be catering Saturday and Sunday breakfast. In a change to past events, dinner on Saturday will be held at the Salt Water Creek Hotel, Helensvale (6.30pm) at a cost of $25 ($23 seniors). Please provide advance numbers to the organising committee.
For any early arrivals, there will be a few exhibitors setting up from about mid-day on the Friday (29/7/2016) - we can be found at the display area or the camping area. Any set up on Friday will have to be completed by about 5.30pm.
All exhibitors must submit a SCRS application form for program printing and entry card - applications available from the Brisbane committee. At this stage members intend to show –

for people flying in to
Coolangatta, or driving in from the South the motels on the Gold Coast strip
would be best. For
those who wish to be close to the venue, the nearest motel is the Beenleigh
