July Club Outing: Warwick: Jumpers & Jazz Festival
A great weekend was had by those who took off on the Friday out to Warwick with five groups meeting for lunch at Aratula. What started years ago with Craig going out there to Jumpers and Jazz for the weekend has grown into a group of seven cars this year, with all eager to see what car sheds Craig’s mate Phil (who lives out there) takes us to on the Saturday.
After arriving out there Friday, we settled into the motel having a few refreshments. As most of us out there are going to Tassie for the Nationals, Craig had put together with the help of Tammie and myself a book with all places we are going through on the way down with all info needed. As well as that, Craig had asked Phil of NAPA for car cleaning products, while I asked Gary a Manager of Mothers car products for anything they could spare. Thanks to those guys, we have ended up with a selection of products to keep our cars clean for the Nationals. Friday night it was off to the Warwick Hotel for a feed and a drink or three.
Saturday we awoke to minus 2 degrees! But a fine day. We all headed over the road to a garden place where they have the most delicious breakfast menu (that filled us up). With that done, the girls headed for the shops while we followed Phil in our cars to the first shed where they had a range of cars in all stages of repairs and one bloody big motor home that looked like it was out of Mad Max. Next on the list was Pete’s Hot Rods down near Stanthorpe, where they put on a sausage sizzle for us. There they built rods from the fibreglass body and chassis to driving out the door. Saturday night was around to Phil’s and Leanne’s for a dinner of pulled Pork and Pulled beef and heaps of laughs.
We awoke to another fresh morning on Sunday, down in the Minus degrees again, and headed off to Queens Park where we had another 4 cars meet us there before we headed into the main street for the show. 3 more cars came along later making 14 cars for the day. A good day was had with heaps to look at and see. While a few were staying out there Sunday night, we and others headed for home after a great weekend.
Hope to see you all at our next run up to Yandina on the 19th of August.
Please remember we will be leaving the Nudgee Shell at 8.00 am.
