February Club Outing: Kilcoy
Most of us gathered at Shell Nudgee on what was yet another hot February day. By the time the 8.30 departure rolled around we had about 14 cars ready to cruise up the Bruce Highway, with Ken and Jenny joining the group at the weighbridge. We turned off onto the D’Aguilar Highway and headed for Kilcoy, passing through a few country towns along the way - Woodford was alive, with Sunday markets running down the main street.
Arriving at Kilcoy we found Harmony Manor café, where we either parked in their carpark or over the road in the park. The menu had enough of everything for those who wanted something light to hamburgers etc. It was a bit early for lunch when we arrived but several hamburgers were downed. There was a two piece live band playing right behind a few of us - where were the ear plugs?
After eats, a few of us went for a walk about, and some people started to leave for home. Quite a few headed back towards home via the Brisbane Valley Highway through Esk, rather than putting up with the Bruce Highway Sunday traffic. A great drive home - with no dramas.
The next Club Outing in March is another longer drive than the normal monthly run. Down to Ballina this time around, with the Club BBQ trailer back for this trip. I hope everyone enjoys these longer runs to blow the cob webs out, and please remember we’ll be leaving the Hyperdome at 7.30am.
