NZRR&BC 50th Anniversary - April 2023

We are celebrating our Club's 50th Anniversary in and around the Wairarapa in April 2023. 

We will have tours from North, South, East and West converging on the Wairarapa for a long weekend of activities, and our annual AGM, based in Masterton.  We have five days of festivities planned, running from Friday 21st April through to Tuesday 25th April (Anzac Day).

There will be tours starting from Cape Reinga, Bluff, Cape Egmont and East Cape during the week prior to the 50th Weekend.  The three North Island tours will come together in Ohakune for a combined run on to Whanganui and Masterton.  The South Island tour will pick up with our Wellington team for the run up to Masterton. See here for the registration form for the South Island part of the event.

Following the weekend celebrations, we have arranged a farewell dinner in Wellington on Wednesday 26th April.

We have built in lots of flexibility - you are welcome to join whatever part of the tours and the weekend you are able to, whether the whole thing or just one of the activities. Full details are will be available shortly. 

We welcome all Rolls Royce and Bentley owners whether current club members or not. 

We look forward to you joining us for this celebration in 2023, literally a once in a lifetime opportunity.

The club will also be holding a silent auction throughout the event for two very special original works of art by the renowned artist Don Packwood. Each of the two paintings features a significant event from the history of Rolls Royce and Bentley. The auction result will culminate on the final evening at The Wellington club on the 26th April. All members of the club can bid for either or both of these amazing original works of art. See below for an image of each painting and here for more details.
