NOSTALGIA (5)


SOCIAL EVENTS

As reported in Malcolm Spiden's history of the first couple of years of the Club (full text on the first of the Nostalgia pages), the first Club event ever held was a Social event - a day run on Sunday 28 November 1954. It was reported in 'Motor Sport in Qld' that 'a good rollup of cars assembled at Kemp Place about the 8am mark, and it really looked something to see the line-up of G's. Lunch was at Picnic Point, Toowoomba where future activities were discussed.' (Motor Sport in Qld Dec 1954, Vol 2 No 4 p 31)
