DISPLAY INVITATION at the OPENING OF SUPERCHEAP’S NEW WARRAGUL STORE

(Apologies to Paul Simon)

A winter’s day

In a deep and dark West Gippsland

I am alone

Gazing through my windscreen to the street outside

Through a freshly fallen wind-blown veil of rain

I am a fool

I am an island

Perhaps, more accurately, part of an archipelago of similar islanders who discarded common sense to bring their classic or sporting vehicle out on such a dismal day for the sake of a free sausage or two.

Thank you to David Anderson (Pontiac Firebird), Jaime Drysdale (Nissan 370Z), Ken Purcell (Nissan 350Z), John Boland (VW Beetle), John Cobbledick (Jaguar XJS) as well as Wayne and Colleen Eccles (MGB V8) for joining me with the BMW Z4 as we represented the Club at the opening of Warragul’s new Supercheap Store. We were supported by several other members who braved the elements without their special vehicles, but the whole thing was a bit of a washout as gale-force winds and driving rain kept everyone indoors.

The new Supercheap store is part of a group of large ware-house type retail outlets on the old Hastings Hardware site on the south side of Warragul that will soon include an architecturally interesting Café that may attract more customers than the retail outlets themselves. There is ample parking provided and once planted out with some trees to break up the harshness of the featureless concrete, the site should become an asset to that side of the town.

    Congratulations to all who turned up, a hardy bunch of Gippslanders if there ever was. I for one chickened out and remained dry and relatively warm in my shed.
