BUNDABERG & DISTRICT CHAPTER
Established 1 July, 2017
This was formerly part of the Wide Bay Chapter and the members were affectionately referred to as the "Bundy Crew". The number of members has grown so that it has now become a Chapter in its own right

Bundaberg & District Chapter News - 20/10/2019
After discussion with a few members of our Chapter we decided to have a Noggin & Natter to discuss the Chapters future runs & finances, it was decided to have it at our house in Burnett Head. We had 20 members attended at around 11am, the last left at around 5pm. The feedback is that it was a great success & will be held every few months in next year’s calendar.
As expected all many topics were discussed & a few tipples, I believe we all got to know each other a little better at least Jenny & I did.

Rocky Point Outing - 4th to 14th October
Well we all gathered our caravans/motor homes and of course Ray and Jacqui took there trailerable house boat and did they get some looks as they moved into the camping grounds.
What a great few days beside the banks of Baffle Creek. Lots of talking about what we are doing in the future around the camp fire. Rodger and Phyllis were seen paddling around the creek in their kayaks at times over the days.
David had a fishing rod in the water. One day after drowning a few prawns he came up from the river with the rod in two pieces. It was reported by David it was a large fish, which he let go. There were a lot of rocks in that part of the river.
For entertainment was spent watching Steve and Tracey mainly Steve learn how to use their new caravan. What’s this for and how does this work – We all had lots of helpful hints, Great Fun.
Janelle, Jenny and Tracy were also throwing some silver balls around the camp area. Not sure what they were up to and a number board games were played over the days, of course a few nibbles & drinks were consumed.
We all enjoyed the few days away thanks to everybody’s company and a great camping spot
We had - Eric & Janelle, David & Jenny, Ray & Jacqui , Rodger & Phyllis , Steve & Tracy, Ian & Tracey

Bundaberg MG Crew - 29/09/2019
As Jacqui’s trip to the Bunya Mountains was cancelled due to lack of participants we have not had a run since 25 August.
We had a turnout of 9 cars with Teena coming in her Hyundai and Selwyn’s Mercedes not behaving so he and Sue came in their other car.
The rest of us were in our usual cars 3 MGBs, 2 MGFs & 2 MX5s. We met as usual at the Quay St car park, I asked Eric to lead as I was not sure of some of the short cuts.
We arrived at Rosedale with no mishaps and had an enjoyable morning tea with the usual banter.
I suggested we have more social interaction which was well received, so we are having the first Bundy Crew Noggin & Natter on the 30th of October.
I then took over the lead and continued on to the Imperial Bar and Restaurant on the Fingerboard rd. Which has been constructed on a cattle property it was the first time for the whole group apart from Jenny and I.
The service was a bit slow but the meals were very well received and not expensive.
After many more important problems were solved we all wandered off home. A very enjoyable day with good company.
