With over 80 people in 42 cars booking in during the weeks prior to the event, this was certainly going to be one of our largest club outings since the Covid pandemic began. John Cobbledick was the man in charge and despite concerns with weather, traffic, parking and overcrowding, the sun came out and things ran smoothly enough, with everyone arriving back at John and Kira’s farm in Leongatha after a beautiful drive through the Strzeleckis, stopping at Mirboo North for morning tea, before continuing down to Agnes Falls near Toora.
The BBQ lunch was provided by the Club, but special thanks to Kira especially, and John for all their work in ordering and preparing the nibblies, BBQ, salads and desserts that everybody enjoyed so much. John’s massive workshop/garage was as immaculate as ever, and made a terrific venue, bedecked with Christmas decorations and plenty of automotive regalia to admire.
After lunch, people enjoyed a relaxing afternoon under the shady trees or admiring the carpark and property before farewelling our hosts and heading home.
It was terrific seeing so many members out enjoying their sporting and classic cars together again and we look forward to our first Breakfast Club in Warragul for over 6 months, next Sunday. I’m sure it will be another very well-attended event.
Many thanks to John Cobbledick for pulling the event together after our Birthday Bash was cancelled due to Covid, and of course John and Kira Moore for inviting the Club to their property and being the perfect hosts.
