2021 National Meet – Lakes Entrance

The SCCA welcome our friends and visitors to the 2021 National Meet in Lakes Entrance Victoria from Friday April 2nd until Monday April 5th 2021.

Lakes Entrance is a picturesque Victorian coastal town, 320km east of Melbourne. It is located on the edge of the Ninety Mile Beach, where coastal sand dunes separate the Southern Ocean from the Gippsland Lakes, Australia’s largest inland lake system.

Whenever you visit, there is always something to do. Swimming and water sports are appealing in the warmer months; while fishing, dolphin and lake cruises, mini golf, Segway adventures, camel safaris, museums, ocean and lake walks are available to enjoy any time of the year.

There is a wonderful selection of seaside shops to browse and cafes in which to relax. You can take a leisurely forest drive to find a winery to sample, heritage home, mountains or caves to explore. You can book a scenic helicopter, tigermoth or joy flight along the coast or hire a bike and follow many of the mountain trails or waterfront pathways.

Many will look forward to the Craft and Produce Market on Easter Sunday. No matter how long you stay, lakes, ocean, mountains; there is something for everyone.

Events and Venues
This is a Work In Progress. A lot of reservations have been made. It’s now time to formalise these, so in the next several months the committee will be confirming our pre-booked venues, working through the catering and various other activities.

Update ~ July 2020

SNM2021, Easter 2021……..closer than you think……

So, let’s bring our members and visitors (maybe prospective new members with your encouragement; or those first time out with a new Stude), up to date on progress.

As you all can appreciate some restrictions have applied to travel and meetings with various parties. Vicki and I however, ventured down to Lakes Entrance over the Queen’s Birthday weekend, which allowed us to review and bed down a few more details and ideas for events.

Given the number of official registrations for the meet booked at the Bellevue On The Lakes MHQ, The Esplanade Resort and Spa and various other accommodation locations, we are heading towards a large number of attendees.

Very soon, the committee will meet again (COVID 19 restrictions permitting), to continue in the planning for our event and finalise many of the items that have been on hold to date. We are very confident that COVID19 will be well behind us by Easter next year, so it will soon be full steam ahead.

As we have mentioned in previous SNM2021 report updates, we have a few people who have made accommodation bookings at MHQ, but have yet to register for the event. If you plan to come to events and receive a beaut goody bag, we would appreciate it if you could get your registration in. An idea of overall numbers will certainly assist us in our planning and timing for certain events and tours and ensure that we have everyone included.

Even though report updates for SNM2021 are not in every Stude News, you can always contact us to get an update.

Studebaker Promotional Clothing –

I would also like to report that the Studebaker clothing is out in the Studebaker community. We introduced the garments at a display at the SCCA Victoria Concours 2019 in Geelong, for which we had a large number of orders, now delivered to members. The next round of orders for both Studebaker in general and SNM2021 will be in August 2020 for delivery in October 2020. The details of apparel for both SNM2021 and Studebaker will be in the Stude News and via studebakercarclub.net/2021-national-meet-lakes-entrance-clothing/
