MGCCQ Darling Downs Chapter - Monthly Run, 29 January 2023
 

The first run of the year for the Chapter saw 29 participants meet for breakfast at Urban Grounds Café, also providing an opportunity for a walk through Laurel Bank Park opposite.  

 

Following the break over Christmas and New Year, it presented a good opportunity to catch up, judging by the extent and volume of the chatter while enjoying food and coffee.  We also had the opportunity to welcome a new MGA owner for breakfast, in Ben Jewell who is looking to join the club. Following breakfast, the bulk of the group participated in a run via Flagstone Creek Rd and the scenic (for passengers at least) Silver Pinch Rd, down off the range. Fine weather on the day and recent rains provided a good vista for the middle of summer. 

The run proceeded via Helidon to Spring Bluff Train Station where the group enjoyed morning tea in the shady parkland.

Participants on the day were:
Glen and Bev Hadfield (VW), Gary and Janis Lawrence (MGB GT), Ferne and Rob Callow (MGF), Helen Goodfellow and Del Jensen (Toyota), Andrew and Susan Willesden (MGB), Michael and Marilyn Keating (MGB GT), Ben Jewell (MGA), Cheryl and Frank Francis (MGB), Gaye Hawkshaw and Debbie Schier (Toyota), Kevin and Anne Wruck (Leyland Mini), Brian and June Phillips (MG TF), Owen and Kay Douglas (MGB), Trevor and Karen Martin (Ford), Mal and Barb Campbell (Mitsubishi), and Ian Roberts (MGB).

DARLING DOWNS CHAPTER - End of Year Monthly Run.

 

After assembling at the Blue Mountain car park in perfect, tops down Toowoomba weather, a good group of 12 vehicles headed off trhough the eastern Downs for morning tea at Crows Nest National Park. Potential new membere, Trevor & Karen joined in anticiaption of acquiring their own "B" in the near future. Recent new members Mal & Brb brought along thei recently acquired PT Cruiseer for a successful day out.

The wildlife at Crows Nest National Park are obviously well trained and no sooner had we pulled up, we were inundated with food seeking "everything". As Gay & Debbie opend their blueberry muffins (which they refused to share), a hungry kookaburra launced itself and stole half of them. This caused great commotion and had everyone on their guard protecting their own. Our morning break was very relaxing in a quiet bush setting but the time came to soon move on. Gary was "cheesed" off that he lost lost his nob & nuts off his power antenna.

Our next stage was to travel towards Cooyar however the road works caused a couple of lengthy delays before we eventually turend off onto the Dalby/Oakley Road for the return tri[ through Haden for lunch at Goombungee Hotel. 

As we got closer to Goombungee, rain clouds started to loom and soon the first spots of rain splattered the windscreen - there was a scurry to put tops on as we parked. Tony thoughr he was under control until he realised he never had his windows.

Lunch was enjoyable in a good old country hotel setting and marked the finsal excursion for the year.
