SCCNSW Club Run
14th October 2012
Victorian Concours - Moorabbin Airport
Many thanks to Peter L for the report and photo's.
I drove from home at 7:30 am in dry weather, the forecast was heavy storms coming and reports of snow around the high country.
Turning onto the M2 it started, torrential rain for the next two hours on the high speed roads until Marulan where the scenery turned white with snow, it continued to near Yass.
The petrol stop was closed for maintenance, I had to drive to Yass town centre for petrol.
Next it was onto ALBURY to the ELM COURT MOTEL.
Our members will remember staying here on the convoy to BALLARAT.
I had told Laurie Evans I was coming south, that night his wife Colleen and Ruth Rennick and myself had dinner at the Commercial Club, we had all been to Timaru for the New Zealand Nationals at Easter this year.
At the Dingley Hotel, Dave
Pink phoned to tell me who was staying from the Stude Clubs. I spent
the night with Ray and Gloria Crunkhorn talking about South Bend and
the USA trip.
Sunday was Concours day, 61 cars turned up, the weather was perfect. The local members were such a friendly lot.
A young generation led by Michael Pink and Anthony Heyde, Leon Martin did all the running and organising with help of many I didn't meet personally.
Barry Cameron was debuting a
three year in construction Boatail Commander Six Special, completely
made of 1939
It would make a great "Club Run" in the future.
I took plenty of photos for the Web Site.
Presentation night was a low key event, most people staying home to watch a new TV show, Jack Irish.
I had a great night with
Jack Daniels and Jim Bean, two KIWI'S I met in South Bend.
Monday, 6:00 am back to Sydney 1000 Klm, the Hawk went well but it maybe tired like me.
Anita was pleased to see me
and so were the two dogs.
