December Club Outing: 2014 Awards Presentation: Scotty's Garage
We all met at Forest Lake, where it was very hot, ready to experience the rest of the day. As we left, people just got in their cars and started to go without realising it was Cameron they were meant to be following. He soon moved to the front of the convoy and started out on a very long windy cruise through the country mountains.
One and three quarters of an hour later we finally arrived at our destination, The Barn and Scotty’s Garage located at the bottom of the Toowoomba range.
The committee looked to get organised by catching up with the owner and getting into the back of the garage where there is a 60’s diner style space. This would be where we would hold our trophy presentation for the year. All the trophies and awards were eventually laid out, ready to be handed out by the committee and Cameron. The slide projector was set up with the presentation ready to start while everyone else socialised at the Barn’s café.
The owner then let everyone have a walk through the museum and look at his garage collectibles. Then he opened the adjoining door into the diner where we had our end of year presentations. Congratulations to all the winners and everyone else for attending and making the day another club run, with a good number of members in attendance.
After the presentation we had our meal and dessert. It would have been nice to have enough food to go around to everyone. We made a $200 donation to the garage for allowing us to look through the memorabilia, which would’ve cost $8 each..
Some of the members then had their car’s photo taken in front of the old nostalgia garage which might end up in our calendar we will be producing later on in the year and then we all parted our separate ways and headed home – exhausted and hot..
Yours in Cruizin'
