February Club Outing: Toogoolawah
Walking around our meeting point at Macca’s Goodna, looking for our outings bloke Pixie. Nowhere to be seen, oh no what will we do now? The original mystery run location couldn’t be done due to heavy rain and floods washing away roads. So we decided on Toogoolawah, which has a few pubs and the Eagle Rock Café.
We ended up with 14 cars, and one more by a fluke, as Gary and Jenny called in to get a feed that Macca’s owed them and ended up coming along. (What’s that Jenny - they didn’t put your meal in the bag, another phone call to Macca’s).
It was a very warm day, much like many we have been having latelyl, but I don’t think that matters for those who came along whether it’s raining or hot. It’s about getting the cars out for a run.
We had a trouble free run up the Brisbane Valley Highway. Pulling up in the main street which had the locals come out from doors everywhere, which made us felt very welcomed. A few of us roamed the main street looking for anything of interest. Everyone made it into the Eagle Rock Diner for morning tea - filling up on coffee, bickies, spiders and milkshakes in the old time alloy containers (except Terry’s, just a glass one for him haha).
It was good just sitting back having a yack. My wife Linda came along being her first run since last September, and she really enjoyed catching up with everyone.
Next was lunch where we went two doors down to the Toogoolawah Pub, which had a great menu with good prices. They had a dining room off to the side of the bar where we took up two large tables. The meals at the pub were your lovely large country pub meals, no one would have left hungry. I had the rump salad and chips while Linda had the snags salad and chips. I enjoy going to these small towns and having a feed which helps them out in these times, and looking in the shops which are stuck in a time warp, never knowing what you could find in them.
Thanks for another great day everyone, see you all next month up at Bribie Island for Pointscore Round 1.
