Doin' it in Style since 1986
The first meeting of the reformed Monaro Club of Queensland Inc. was held in Beenleigh on the 18th June 1986 at the house of Derek Birch.
The first Committee comprised of: President, Chuck Peters; Vice President, Derek Birch; Secretary’s, Nerrine Birch and Michelle Carpenter; Treasurer, David Seabrook and Public Relations, Steven Carpenter and Rick Smith. Lindsay Webster was the Club's first Gold Coast coordinator and Derek Birch was the original Editor of the Club newsletter. Subsequent meetings were held at the Beenleigh Rum Distillery.
President’s since then have been: Craig Keene, Carole Peters, Graham Curtis, Jodie Curtis, Rebekka Napper, Mick Gourley, Darryl Lonergan and Terry Post.
September 2010 saw a milestone for the Club - organising and hosting the first Monaro Nationals to be held in Queensland. Over 250 Monaro models and their dedicated owners travelled from all over the nation, meeting for a successful, multi-day event in Warwick on the southern Darling Downs.
In 2011 the Club celebrated its 25th Anniversary, the longevity of the Club is testament to the passion and dedication of Club Members, and the enduring popularity of the Holden Monaro.
Over the years the Club has collected an extensive library of approximately 10 photograph albums, forming a visual chronicle of the activities and history of the Club.
The very first Cruzetime was on the 4th of April 1987, held in the Coles car park at the Arndale Shopping Centre with approximately 40 cars.
Cruzetime 2001 saw numbers swell to a gathering of approximately 1800 cars, of all makes and models, a massive increase over the inaugural 1987 Cruzetime.
