March Club Outing: Picnic Point: Toowoomba
Leaving really early in the morning we left for Toowoomba with Craig and the two Peters in tow. On arrival, one and a half hours later, there was no one around so we started to set up.
We tried to save as many parks as we could for our members by parking across the parks and spreading right out. Unfortunately within an hour the car park started to fill. By the time everyone arrived we were only four spaces short, but soon parks were found as people seemed to be coming and going all the time. The cupcakes, tea and coffee were ready and waiting by the time the gang arrived. It always looks and sounds very impressive when everyone turns up together in convoy.
With the usual BBQ lunch, everyone had a great feed and we might even have some potential new members from the run who enjoyed themselves that much.
On the same day there was a VW show on about 200m away,
so some of us went and had a bit of a look, it turned out to be pretty good, and free entry also. There was also a free jumping castle for the kids to play on.
Everyone’s cars were cleaned and ready for the first Pointscore for the year which was good to see. Judging was done and out the way until next time. Once everyone had Pointscored the cars and had a good feed it was time to pack up and head home.
What a long drive back. I was already tired by Gatton and nearly fell asleep along the way but I’m sure I wasn’t the only one. All in all it was a very lovely day with a breathtaking view from the top of the range and the day went off without a hitch.
Yours in Cruizin'
