Rallies this year - Kingaroy?
« on: 30 July, 2020, 04:05:54 pm »
Hello team, (particularly Justin.)
There obviously haven?t been many events on this year.
I see the Kingaroy club are advertising their event in September. But couldn?t see a date for the weekend on the advert.
Anybody able to shed any light on that? We are certainly planning to attend if it is still on. Any other takers?
Hopefully they can get past these two (3?) idiotic trollops latest move spreading the virus around in Qld.

Cheers
Rex

Hi Rex,

The Kingaroy Rally is planned to go ahead 19-29 September ,but with the unknown outcomes of this latest Covid Problem we will be watching closely how any new restrictions will effect how we run it.

Should it need to be cancelled due to government restriction / lockdowns etc we will officially do that in early September and it will be up on the forums , Facebook and the clubs website .

There Are several contact numbers on the club Flyer including my own if anyone wishes to find out information closer to the rally.

More info coming over the next few weeks

The attitude we are taking is IF WE CAN RUN WE ARE. We are consulting QLD health for guidance but things are developing so We will do our best but we don?t have a crystal ball to see into the future.

Fingers crossed - Justin.

I have far worse names for these people you mentioned above but I can?t say them here. :(

Hey, thanks mate. Really hope to see you there.  We are exhibiting our trailer hitch at the camping and outdoor expo this weekend. ?Covid safe? and heading to the LAMA tractor trek next weekend. Will be keenly watching the news over the next week or so.
Yes, agree re the words, but not allowed to use them! But what a mess. Just so annoyed at that situation.

cheers,
Rx

We all hope that you can run the Rally and safely and have a  heap of fund doing so. The conditions of being able to run a Rally during times is you MUST post lots of pics.
Rx, what is this trailer hitch you mentioned?

Hi, sorry for the tardy response. Been out on jobs around the place as usual, whilst trying to get over a very tiring weekend at the expo.
Please see my website. No, I?m not that clever putting it together, that?s the son in law?s job.
Www.protectahitch.com  (not sure if that will go through as a link. You may need to put it in the browser. I also have a protect-a-hitch facebook page now. (Dragged screaming to social media)

Bottom line is -  I came up with the hitch idea, built one on our old camper trailer so we could tow it behind Lindi, the Chamberlain 6G. We found that it towed incredibly well behind conventional vehicles, so built another for our new camper trailer and got the design certified. After putting a couple on friend?s trailers, they said I should be marketing them. Giving it a try now

Cheers

Nice work Rx.
A long time back we had a more primitive idea of using one of those tow bars that have rubber insertions inside them so that it could flex up and down. We also added a single shock absorber to cushion the ride. This was on a 3 tn Isuzu truck towing a mobile hydraulic press able to push 150 tons onsite. the very large and heavy hydraulic ram was up high so it wanted to rock a little bit but the system we used put it back in its place.

Thanks mate, so you got to see the pics/video etc?
It works incredibly well, I just have to convince others that they need them.

I certainly remember the rubber insertion towbars.  They helped, trucks are just so hard on trailers and caravans.
