Gold Country Car Rally

Back at the end of May our Historic Car Club hosted its annual Gold Country Car Rally.

May to June 2013 001

After a weather forecast at the beginning of the week leading up to the rally of 12 degrees and showers, we ended up with a lovely sunny day and 17 degrees.  Much better.

We had over 60 cars entered.

They firstly went on a drive through the countryside with an observation quiz along the way, ending up at Trunkey Creek for lunch and a display of vehicles.

The ladies of the school P & C put on the best lunch, lots of homemade casseroles and sweets.  If anyone went away hungry it was their own fault.  I was too busy tucking in to take a photo.

Mick and I haven’t been involved for quite a few years, as we’ve generally been away at that time of year.  This year, however, we were in the thick of things. That is why I hardly took any photos – just a few as they were all leaving from lunch.

We had some gorgeous vehicles turn up, ranging from this beautiful 1913 Austin, which one best vehicle of the rally, to a 1983 Datsun 280Z and even a Bedford truck.

There was a presentation dinner in the evening including a bit of fun with a trivia quiz  and raffle.  On the Sunday there was a shorter drive, followed by our club members providing a huge morning tea. Nothing like home cooking.

It was a fun weekend and I think everyone involved and a great time. Unfortunately, we will be away again in May next year, so will have to wait a bit longer to join in again.
