Bundaberg MG Crew - 8/11/2020

It seemed a while since we had a club run so it was great to meet up at Quay St as usual for a good old chat. As Judy was not able to lead the run due to car problems I led the run with Ray & Jacqui Mutton as tail end Charlie. We regrouped  on the Gin Gin Rd due to traveling through town & after an uneventful drive to the rest area north of Gin Gin we had an enjoyable morning tea & spoke to a couple of Grey Nomads who were parked there. Eric & Janelle Beckman had their Pomeranian Pup with them so they decided to head to Childers for lunch, the rest of headed south on the Bruce Hwy goat track to the Booyal turn off, past the Paradise Dam turn off to the Childers Biggenden Rd, through Dallarnil to the Commercial Hotel Biggenden. We all went out into the beer garden and ordered our meals and refreshments, which arrived promptly and were of very good quality.

Clive Pearce enjoyed the steak he should have had on our last run but was not able due to hitting a pot hole on our Queensland Hwy 1 buckling a front rim and destroying a tyre leaving  them spending a couple of hrs sitting on the side of the road waiting for a tilt tray. He certainly enjoyed his meal as we all did.

While at the Hotel we decided to hold an extra run on the 22nd of November to baffle Creek.

After the usual banter we all wandered home as a group. A very enjoyable day with good friends.

Bundaberg MG Crew - 22/11/2020

While we were having lunch at Biggenden 2 weeks ago, Bob Murray suggested we have another run before our Christmas Break up, so it was decided we would go to Baffle Creek via Rosedale.

We all arrived to a perfect day with our B.Y.O. morning tea & lunch with a good turnout of members with 6 MGB’s, 1 MGF 1 Porsche Macan GTS & Teena in her Hyundai.

 

As my wife Jenny could not attend, Clive Pearce came with me as his car is awaiting repairs by MG Automotive.

 

We headed off with yours truly leading & Steve & Tracy as tail end Charlie, we had an uneventful run to Rosedale with very light traffic.  After the usual friendly banter in a very pleasant setting under two huge trees, we headed off to Baffle Creek.


The 30 km to Baffle was very enjoyable on a good winding road & no traffic to speak of. 

Past the Baffle Creek Pub & on to the Flat Rock picnic area, we found a table in the shade next to the Creek, while there we discussed the Christmas party & next year’s calendar.

After a wander up & down the creek we had another drink & made our way back home. Another great day with good friends.

We had our Bi Annual camping trip leaving Friday 2nd & returning home on Monday 5th.

We camped on 40 acres off the Pine Creek Rd on private property, we had 6 caravans arrive 4 on Friday & 2 on Saturday. Friday afternoon after setting up the gazebo & fire pits we all settled down for a good chat and of course a couple of wines & ales.

The next morning Ian & Tracy Innes arrived followed shortly by Steve & Tracy Gable who of course had lots of good advice on how to set up their caravans. We had a quiet Saturday with a few of us reading and just relaxing even a snooze or two (Eric).


That night we had a good feed before more banter around the fire until we all wandered off to our beds. The next day we went on a nature walk around the block down to the dam & over the creek checking out all the different types of flora & fauna.

 

By the time we got back to camp the sun was over the yard arm so time for a tipple. We had another good night & all wandered back to our vans a contented lot. Monday morning we slowly packed up and wandered home after morning tea.

Thanks to our daughter and husband who own the block for letting us use it.

A very enjoyable weekend with good friends.
