Gathering in the Target shopping center car park on the corner of Tapleys hill Rd and Valetta Rd Kidman Park at 6:00 pm for a 6:30 departure.

The run will be of approximately 1 hour duration. Sun is scheduled to dip into the gulf of St Vincent at 7:33 on this day. The route will hopefully keep the glare behind us.

          Depart the shopping center car park in a southerly direction.

          Follow Tapleys hill Rd to Sir Donald Bradman Rd and turn left.

          Follow Sir Donald Bradman Rd to West Trc.  and turn left.

          Drive along West Trc. Follow city ring route Park Trc. Hackney Rd. Dequetterville Trc.

         Follow Glyburn Rd to K mart on your left hand side.

         There will be a short presentation at K mart.

 Route maps will be available at the departure point.

If the bureau predicts above 36 deg or more than a 20% chance of rain the Cruise will be postponed.

As would be expected everyone joining us take part entirely at their own risk and are responsible for the roadworthiness of their vehicle.
