We hope everyone enjoyed the run to Walker Flat on January 26th. It was a great day and everyone seemed to be in the right frame of mind to celebrate Australia Day. The Show n Shine day was organised by the Murray Mallee Car Club, and was held at Walker Flat. We left the Clubrooms at 9.30 and had a lovely trip via Mannum, along the River on the Purnong Road and then onto Walker Flat.
There were plenty of cars for the enthusiast to have a look at. The weather was great, a little bit warm, but most of us seemed to find a shady spot to set out chairs and tables and relax. Plenty of chat, coffee and lamingtons…how else could we celebrate the 26th. Of course there was the mandatory sausage sizzle.
Glenn Boerth just happened to be celebrating his birthday, but would not divulge which one??!! We presented Glenn with a token birthday cake, a chocolate donut.
It was great to see our Club member Trevor Jericho win the Editors Choice trophy, congratulations Trevor, and Yvonne Kuchel and Pat Jennings each won a raffle prize. Congratulations to Yvonne and Pat.
There were no breakdowns or dramas, Eric Kuss didn’t slip into the River this year!!
We had 31 cars and 61 people. Our thanks to everyone that attended.
Remember ‘SHOW THEM DON’T HIDE THEM’ See you at the next run
