May Club Outing: Pirate Park: Bribie Island

We all awoke to a beautiful fine brisk Autumn morning. Meeting at the Shell Nudgee, we had a large number of Club Members and their rides. Plus, we had a number of fantastic looking vehicles from our guests for the day from the QLD HD & HR Holden Club Inc. I also noticed a few Qld Monaro Owners Facebook Group visitors cars there too. We also shared the Shell Nudgee with what appeared to be the Mustang Club, before they headed north on their run.

After breakfast and a chat with all, off we headed north in a very long procession of Monaros, HD, HRs, and other GMH vehicles. In the procession of cars was our very well kitted out club trailer, now with its very eye catching Sponsors Signage. It certainly told those who saw it who we were, with its great club branding graphics.

On arrival at the park, we had so many cars that some had to park out on the street and others took their chances double parking. Then James Ketchell, Craig Keene, Steve McLuckie, Tony McKenzie (to name just a few) got the club BBQ lunch cooking underway. With club drinks, tea and coffee, and Cupcakes from Tammy James of Cupcake Crazee, we all enjoyed a great time yarning about the great cars on display, whilst partners and their kids enjoyed the park and the playground. It was a very large club lunch with nearly 80 people fed!

The weather was just perfect, and the venue was too.

So after sharing a lunch and a yarn on the Holdens with our guests, it was time to pack up and head back to Brisbane.

Thanks to all who attended, and especially our guests who added variety and colour to the day. A special thanks to the BBQ Cooking & Preparation Team for their much valued work that they often do for the club. Special thank you to “The Ketchells” for towing the Club Trailer.

We look forward to Presidents Day now in June at Wivenhoe Dam.
