Rockhampton Hertiage Day

Last weekend a few of us displayed at the Rockhampton Heritage Village as part of Heritage Day Celebration. It was great day to be out plenty of interest and we were on our way again just after 2.

May Beach Cruise

On Sunday a few of us meet for our monthly cruise. We meet at a park in north Rocky where we had a chat and shared some morning tea. We headed off via the Byfield bypass and Browns lane before cruising back across the coast to Daniel Park Cooee Bay. As we pulled up we were joined by Brian & Penny on their Indian motorcycle / sidecar, what a cool cruiser (see pictures below). After lunch and a chat we headed for home and back to do the boring old chores, thanks for your company.

Stanwell cruise, tour and lunch

Today we meet at Curtis Park before cruising out to Stanwell. It was good to catch up with friends we hadn’t seen in 17. We’d like to thank John for providing us with a tour of the station assisted by Matthew. It was very informative and we all came away with a greater appreciation on how our power is generated. Also like to thank the other helpers for an enjoyable morning tea and lunch. Please see pictures below

First cruise of 2017

Today we meet at the heritage village before heading to the beach for a ice cream. The weather was a bit hit and miss but that didn’t prevent us from enjoying the cruise and having a chat. Please see pictures below.

Christmas Lights cruise, last cruise for 2016

On Sunday night we met at red hill before heading out to Gracemere to checkout their Xmas lights. We’d like to thank everyone for participating and a big thank you to Brad and the family for their efforts in putting the route together. We made a brief stop at Dave’s place to present a token of thanks for years of service to the hot rodding lifestyle. We take this opportunity to wish one and all a very merry but safe holiday and look forward to cruising again in 2017. Please see some pictures below, thanks Judy.

 

$2000 Donation to Rockhampton SES

At the monthly meeting last week we handed a cheque for $2000 to the local SES who are always there for the community in time of need. This was our way of thanking those who give so much of their own time to help out others. The monies were raised at our annual Cap Coast Campout which was held in August. At this time we’d like to thank everyone who attended our campout both near and far, our many sponsors who’s support is vital and enables the club to raise the extra funds and make donations as these. Finally a big thank you to all Highway 66 members who worked so hard leading up to and over the weekend making it a success. Hope to see you again next year.

September’s cruise to Byfield Store for lunch

In September a few members braved the on and off weather and enjoyed a cruise up to the Byfield Store for lunch. Always a enjoyable cruise with good food in a relaxing area.

October Garage Crawl

The crawl started at Novus Rockhampton where Brian & Penni showed members more about the glass industry. From there the group cruised to Wazrodz to see what Waza had on the go, plenty of variety. Then onto John’s T-bucket and then onto Hilly’s 32 build. After checking out Craig’s progress everyone settled in for lunch. Thank you.
