There is only one word to describe the run…..PERFECT. The weather and the venues and of course all those that participated on Wednesday 2nd November. We had 39 members and 19 cars leaving the Clubrooms on time and headed off to Cambrai. The Museum and the morning tea at Cambrai was excellent. Many of our members were very

surprised at the display at the Museum and some were not aware that there was one in the town. There were quite a few members that recognised names of the old settlers. We were all surprised to hear that Alan & Eunice Wegener were married at the old Lutheran Church, which now is the Museum. The Ladies who prepared the morning tea did an excellent job, with plenty of sandwiches, cakes and biscuits. Perhaps we should have declined the second helping of goodies, seeing that lunch was only an hour or so away. We ladies managed to get into the Red Cross Op Shop and had a lovely time. We noticed quite a few coming away with shopping bags. Makes Myra feel that we should have an “OP SHOP” run! I’m sure the men would be happy to drive us around them all. Ha Ha. We arrived at Tanunda Weintal for lunch just after noon. We were made to feel very welcome, and the staff had set up the “Garden Room” for us to use. The meal was as usual lovely. Graham entertained us with a joke. His “Yorkshire accent” sounded a bit scottish at times, but well done Graham. We all made our own way home and I’m sure we can all agree that a good time was had by all. No doubt about it, the scenery through Cambrai and onto Tanunda was very picturesque. We drove through some areas with the hay cut and baled, ready to be loaded onto trucks. Then through the Barossa with lovely tall gum trees and neat and tidy vineyards. The countryside was lovely and green and lush, just what you would expect after all the rain we have had. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your attendance on this run and to encourage our newer members to join in on the runs. Doing car runs is a great way of getting to know your fellow car enthusiasts, and getting a feel of the friendship that is available.
