We met at Carisbrook Park early Friday morning which was cool but dry.
Grant and Rosie handed out run bags which contained a pen and writing pads, a stubby holder and information on the weekend ahead.
Around 9.45 we all left here heading for Jamestown and a great weekend. Grant had his car back on the road newly painted and looking good and was being driven by his brother as he had his van with all the items for the weekend. Unfortunately the coupe didn’t get too far when the water pump pulley fell apart. Several members stayed and helped fix the problem while the others went on ahead. We found out later this took awhile as Grant had every tool but the one he wanted and had to go and purchase one in Gawler – twice as he bought the wrong one the first time he went.
The rest of us travelled on to Clare for a late morning tea or early lunch when Neville and Maureen got a flat tyre but this was easily changed and later fixed in Jamestown.
From Clare it was a good run to Jamestown where we all settled in either in the caravan park or the local hotel.
Around 3 pm the guys went off to see a couple of sheds and the girls set off to see a pressed glass museum which was very colourful and very interesting.
Later the BBQ got going and it was hamburgers and sausages for dinner. Grant had a lucky draw going with Graham Wight and Simon winning the first lot of prizes.
After a cold night it was time for bacon and eggs, tea and coffee for breakfast and some more lucky draw prizes and the start of the poker run game. Then it was off to Peterborough for a visit to the local motorbike museum then lunch.
Around 3 pm we did a guided tour of Steamtown which was very interesting and most purchased items like hats, dvds, umbrellas, model trains etc afterwards.
Some headed back to Jamestown while others stayed for dinner in a lovely café attached to the hotel before heading off to the Sound and Light Show back at Steamtown. This was very interesting and informative held in a lovely warm carriage for about an hour and a half. Then it was home to Jamestown in the light of a full moon.
Sunday morning after breakfast it was off to the Jamestown Oval for a Show and Shine together with the locals of Jamestown.
Grant had earlier arranged with member David Hunt to organise this and a very big selection of vehicles were on show for the day. Some of the ladies went and visited the local craft exhibition and craft shop others walked around the main street purchasing materials and wool from shops.
Lunch was a sausage sizzle with the club BBQ which went down well with everyone. It was perfect weather to just sit around and chat or look at the cars around the oval. Grant did some more lucky draws and more of the poker run game. Before long it was time to go back and get ready for the presentation dinner and get our hats in order as this was the theme of the night. The winners were Gail Wakefield for the Ladies and Wayne Boulton for the Men’s and both were popular choices.
The winner of the poker run game was Colleen with 4 of a kind.
