Camping Weekend at Booyal

At last we have been released with our caravans & motorhomes. Steve & Tracy Gable organised us to go to a friend’s property just down the Booyal Biggenden rd.  4 caravans & 1 motorhome arrived at the parking area 16 km north of Apple Tree Creek to follow Steve & Tracy to the farm house. Steve & the farmer found a good spot on a hill with great views & firewood. As night fell we were pleased that Adrian & Ray had brought their chain saws so we could sit around the fire, drinking beer & wine. The next day some of us went on a tour of the old Dallarnil to Isis railway line, where we stopped to investigate where the owner cuts sleepers for the local sugar railway lines. We spent a quiet afternoon chatting & eating, enjoying each other’s company.
 

Monday morning we all wandered off in different directions home. As usual a very enjoyable time.

On Sunday, 28 June we finally got to hold our second  Noggin & Natter at our house at Burnett Heads. We had a good turnout of 16 members with Graham and Paula Brown joining us having recently moved here from Victoria just before the lock down. We started around 12:00pm with the usual banter & couple of drinks before I fired up the BBQ. We had a great feed thanks to various members & sausages & hamburgers supplied by the Chapter. After the main, we had sweets provided by the ladies.

After the general chit chat, I produced a blank copy of this year’s program, after much discussion certain people were volunteered in to various activities. The calendar has been sent to all the active members for comment before it is placed on the main MGCCQ website.

A very enjoyable day with good friends new & old.

On The Road At Last - by Jacqui Mutton
 

I was so excited that we finally got the green light to hold a run – at last!!! And so were a whole heap of fellow clubbers.  So with no further ado 23 of us in an assortment of vehicles, headed out of Bundy down the black track towards Gin Gin. 

 

It was so absolutely invigorating to feel the wind on your face and the sweet smell of eucalyptus and wattle once again.  Aaagh!  freedom  - never to be taken for granted again.
 

Stopping at the pleasurable rest area just north of the vibrant little town of Gin Gin it was reassuring to see the whole crew adhering to social distancing and staying within a group of 10.  Well done guys.

Morning tea and a good chin wag with old mates over with it was time to hit the tarmac again. 

Back through Gin Gin and down the road a few kilometres we took a left turn through the little hamlet of Bulyard and down a meandering road built for little sports cars.  We finally arrived at the Bucca Rowers Club on the Kolan River, home of the Olympic Rowing Team.  What a delightful spot for lunch and no concerns about social distancing here as all were so enthralled with the view of the river that chairs and eskys were set up in front of their vehicles. 
 

Though we all agreed that we could of stayed much longer it was time to fire up the beast and point in the direction of home.
 

It was not only great to get back on the road again, more importantly it was so good to share in each others company once again.  Thanks everyone for a memorable day.
