Cruiser Subscription 2022-23

Hopefully the disruption to our normal lives from the 21/22 pandemic is coming to an end allowing us to invite subscriptions for our Cruiser program for 2022/23. Annual subscription will remain unchanged at $20.

· We plan to start up our Cruise Night at the Homemaker Centre in Mornington on Tuesday September 6th.

· We will not be inviting advance payment of subscriptions before the September start up. Just come along to the September cruise night and subscribe in person. There will be no gate entry fee for this night. Just cruise in, find a park and come to our tables to subscribe. If you can’t make September, then subscribe at any following LGC event.

· We plan to finish our cruise nights season at April from now on, reassigning May cruise night to kick off the Tavern Catch Up’s. With daylight saving ending & May weather being cool to cold, it’s just more enjoyable catching up indoors.

· We will again be drawing cash prizes for our Cruiser raffle at all events.

· We will again have a major prize draw for all Cruisers at the March Cruise Night.

A number of Cruisers have asked about window stickers for the 2 Covid shutdown years. We plan to have some available at the September Cruise Night for those that want to maintain an unbroken set.

Being a Let’s Go Cruisin’s Cruiser. What’s it all about?

Formed in 2005 by a small team of car enthusiasts, LGC is not your regular car club. The couples that make up our small team causes us to bring a different perspective to our events and activities. The LGC team objective is to host enjoyable, low cost events with a cruisin’ theme for the enjoyment of all pre’ 75 chrome bumper car owners, families & friends. By working to keep events simple, we get to enjoy them too.

But we do see real value in building strong relationships with car enthusiasts that like our way of doing things and want to participate in our activities regularly.

As a result, we created the LGC Cruiser program back in 2007 that allows car enthusiasts a greater degree of involvement with LGC without having to do anything other than participate when your able to. It works a lot like most reward programs. The LGC team do the work necessary to host events and our Cruiser subscriber’s gives us confidence to plan new and better events. We aim to return the favour by offering Cruisers extra benefits when subscribing each year. The more events you come along to, the greater the benefit you’re likely to receive. Put simply, our Cruiser program is aimed at giving you the opportunity to get a little more involved in our activities, and all you have to do is enjoy yourselves.


By rewards we mean:

  • Free entry in the annual Grand Prize draw [ see below for the details]
  • Free entry to the Peninsula Cruise Night
  • Cruiser only cash prize draws at all our events
  • Deals and discounts on sponsors products and services
  • Invitations to Cruiser only events

What’s involved in becoming a Cruiser?

When signing up as a Cruiser you are not joining a car club. It operates as a ‘rewards’ program with no obligations or responsibilities on your part when subscribing for a year. It’s all about the benefits you can obtain when attending any of our events, what level of discounted purchases you make from our sponsors or how lucky you are in the many Cruiser prize draws we conduct.

How much does it cost?

There is no joining fee, just an annual subscription fee of $20.00. Subscriptions fall due on the 30th June each year, there is no pro-rata discount.


What do I get when I join?

  • A Cruiser ID card used to identify you as a Cruiser at our events
  • A Cruiser window sticker for the current year to display on your ride
  • Information about current sponsors deals

Cruisers without pre ’75 cars

It is not a pre requisite that to join us as a Cruiser subscriber that you own a pre’75 car. We want to encourage participation in our favourite hobby and understand that many


enthusiasts may have sold their pre’75 car, be building a new car or just want to learn more about our hobby with the intent of acquiring a pre’75 car. As a Cruiser without a pre’75 car in your garage, you can still enjoy the many of the benefits we offer, including discounts from our sponsors, free lucky entrant’s ticket at our monthly Cruise Night, entry in special Cruiser prize draws at our bigger events. However, if the car you come along in, does not meet our pre ‘75 entry guidelines, please understand that your Cruiser status does not guarantee the entry of your car to that event.
