September Club Outing: Hell Town Hotrods: Gympie
We had a Saturday run to Hell Town Hotrods in Gympie on the September 14th, meeting at Shell Nudgee and hitting the road north at 7.30am.
Terry and Kaz were nowhere to be seen on the day, Terry must have been recovering from the big day out at the nursing home last month.
A dozen or so cars showed, cruised up to Gympie, a very uneventful but scenic drive. Vicki and myself slummed it in the Falcon. We had a great morning tea and lunch at Hell Town Hotrods, lots of old car related memorabilia to be seen.
A few club members went to the Lions Car Show at Cabarlah, north of Highfields on Sunday, September 22nd. James Ketchell, John Gladstone, Vicki and myself in the Falcon AGAIN! Darryl Lonergan grabbed a trophy for top 10 V8.
Sunday the 29th was Toowoomba All Holden Day, James, John, Vicki and myself cruised up for that one - in Torana this time! Our magazine editor was there too, with his black CV8Z taking the trophy for best Post ‘85 Monaro/Statesman. James Ketchell took out top Pre ‘85 Monaro/Brougham/Statesman, John Gladstone won a raffle prize, with Vicki and myself winning 3 of the 67 raffle prizes! It was slow on the Warrego Highway heading home due to a car fire near Minden.
Our next Outing is the Mystery Run on Sunday, 20th October, leaving Red Rooster at Browns Plains at 7.30 am. It should be a great day, stopping for morning tea at a small town, continuing on to a hotel for lunch. It is 120 kms one way for the start . So have a full tank of fuel for those thirsty cars like mine.
There is a cafe at the morning tea venue, a family run business, and we should expect good nibbles. Feel free to bring your own morning tea.
A few clubs have been invited to the Mystery Run. Hope to see a good turnout.
Saturday the 23rd of November is the club Christmas party. Starting at 4.00pm at our meeting room, Beenleigh Senior Citizens Club. BYO booze. Feel free to get drunk and obnoxious. There is a $25 smorgasbord dinner, consisting of meats, seafood, salads and nibbles.
Looking forward to seeing all on the 20th.
