Have your say

MEMBERS of the Australian Caravan Club poured almost $75,000 into SA's Murray Bridge economy during their Chairman's Muster in the city.

Club chairman Craig Humphrey said this equated to around $850 per recreational vehicle.

About 170 members in 78 RVs and several cabins attended the gathering at the Murray Bridge Marina and Caravan Park.

"They supported local businesses and clubs and were overwhelmed by the warm and friendly reception they received from the local community," club chairman Craig Humphrey said.

Members dined out, bought groceries, fuel and other essentials.

They also visited Willow Point winery and were fortunate to call at The Bend Motorsport Park near Tailem Bend for a short tour and viewing of racing cars from days gone by.

A highlight was a three-hour luncheon cruise on the Captain Proud paddle river boat.

Members enjoyed an informative talk by Captain Chris Veenstra on the history of the Murray River and the river boat trade.

Planning took over a year and the ACC had great support from city

Other activities included self-drive trips to the township of Hahndorf and the Monarto free range zoo, the largest in the world by acreage.

"Planning for this had taken over a year and the ACC had great support around the city," ACC member and Murray Bridge local Ralph Michod said.

The club gave a special thank-you to Mayor Brenton Lewis and councillors for their crucial support in making the muster a success.

“ACC members have visited areas of this great city and have been overwhelmed with the very positive feedback.

"This highlights that the council and community are really working together to showcase our region." said Ralph Michod, who was part of the local organising committee, including his wife Pat, together with Steve Evans and Barb Barty.

The club expressed its sincere appreciation and thanks to the city, business community and the Murray Bridge Marina and Caravan Park for being "fantastic hosts".

The local community, it said, had also helped make the muster the success it was.

"This muster has been a truly unforgettable experience," Mr Humphrey said.

"Our members who attended returned to their homes across Australia with memories formed and new friends made.

"The outcome from this muster proves that RVers and local communities can both realise the rewards that result when we work together."

The club is now looking forward to its national muster at Warrnambool in October.
