Who are The Motley Crew?
We are a family oriented club, with the majority of our members having young families, (including the four legged variety).
Our trips are not extreme, thus enabling people new to the 4WD scene to join us and feel comfortable that they will not be out of their depth. We all use our 4WD vehicles as our daily drivers so we want to avoid unnecessary damage. We all have a variety of camp set ups when on trips ranging from swags to caravans and everything in between.
So if this sounds like your type of 4WD club please continue on the website. There is a gallery, calendar and forum to check out and we would love to meet with you at a monthly meeting held every 3rd Wednesday of the month at the Moorooka Sports and Community Centre, Koala Road or on a camping or day trip.
How did we come about?
The very first trip was started on the 4wd action forum website by scarecrow2 from Mackay. He was coming to Brisbane for the school holidays and proposed a trip to Teewah for fellow forumites. Altogether we had 8 turn up for that initial get together, there was scarecrow2, burtbunch, low&slow, bj73lxlover, boxxy, luckyeddie, deep fry and jackakiwis. Although only low&slow and the jacakiwis were known to each other before this trip, this group seemed to click from the start.
So it was after this trip and the fact that responses to Motley Trips were so popular that a few of the guys that had kept things going decided it may be time to formally adopt The Motley Crew concept and form a club.
On the 15th February 2009 a meeting was held at Boxxy’s place and all in attendance voted to form a club and become incorporated and affiliate with 4wd Qld. A committee was elected and the club was born.
The members that founded this club were Carey and Nicole Burt (Burty), Craig and Kyntema Martin (Low&Slow),Mal and Leanne Leeon (Rumpig), Rick and Bronwynne Bradley (Boxxy),Glen and Amanda Wright (MrMac GU),Eddie Lewis (Eddie) and Ben and Jenny Mason (Aussie).
Incorporation was formalized on March 6th 2009 and at our following meeting on March 15th at Rumpigs place, the Secretary, Mr. Jeff Chase of 4wd Qld attended to outline our next steps in affiliating with the state body.
Finally after 3 months hard work by everyone involved in getting all the formalities, done we were formally accepted as a club into 4wd Qld, on Thursday 26th March 2009.
And that is how we came about!!!
As from July 2017 The Motley Crew 4WD Club decided not renew our membership with 4WD QLD and now operates as a stand alone identity.
