So, decide now to be part of this event. Get the dates in your diary and let President Michael know as soon as possible.
We have booked 10 rooms and should be able to get at least a couple more so don’t hold back.
We’ll finalise a program with as much or as little as people want to do, but as a bit of a guide.

WHAT TO DO NEXT:
Get on board as quick as possible and let Michael know by email, that you will be attending and he will get your accommodation locked in. Time is of the essence, so don’t dilly dally. ( Places are limited to what is or will be available at the Park ).
Although the photo shows clouds, luck was with us for most of the day.
The roll call included 5 Sprites, 1 Alpha, 1 BMW all the way from Queensland and 1 tintop.
A quick phone to the Pub to confirm lunch numbers and then we set off from Gepps Cross and headed north on a very scenic run and one with a bit of everything: straight urban roads, hills, country curves & a roundabout thrown in for good measure.
The halfway pitstop was at Kersbrook and the chance for some local shopping.
We rolled on through Williamstown, avoiding the bakery and the bikers. The weather was holding up and so were the cars. Plenty of admiring looks, particularly from younger people.
From Williamstown, we picked up the pace a bit; onto and Springton and then to our destination: Totness Inn at Mt Pleasant.
Gary & Faye Brock came back from their holiday so that made 17 for lunch. I think the publican was happy and the kitchen was busy. We started with nibbles and wine – driving can be hard work remember. A menu and wine list that had something for everyone seemed to be welcomed by the diners. One couple did find it necessary to make a bakery purchase for ron !!
About 2.30pm it was time to head for home in with the hope of beating the rain. We hit the rain around Charleston / Woodside and it stayed with us for the rest of the trip, but there were no problems that your scribe knows about. It seems a good day was had by all.
