We all meet up on Gladstone Rd to drive to the park opposite the Bouldy Pub for the April monthly meeting. After finalising all the formal stuff a new member Mick & Di were welcomed to the club.
After this we made our way up the Mt Morgan range to pick up some tasty treats at the bakery and then drive to the dam to eat. While waiting for everyone to be served some including John Z couldn’t wait to eat their delight so no food left for them to eat at the Dam only soft drink.
The sun was shining and the weather was fine as we met up at the Heritage Village to check out the Rainforest Ranch at Byfield for lunch. John & Pat, Warren & Sue, George & Madonna, Earl & Connie, Mark & Jenny and John & Dee set off to meet up with Brian & Pene along the way on their vintage Indian bike complete with sidecar. Our communication/navigation skills on where to meet Brian & Pene was a bit lacking and they made their own way there.
Everyone had a great lunch with good food and friends. Two of our regulars were missing in action as Craig was busy working on the 32 Ford.
Off to the Jolt Cafe for Sunday breakfast saw Craig & Judy, Lyle & Tracey, George & Madonna, Sue, Earl & Connie, John & Dee and Ben enjoyed a very nice meal before heading off up to the lookout at Mt Archer to check out the sights of Rocky. The day saw the club’s new member Ben join us for his first cruise to show off his ride sporting its RED “P” plate.
The weather was fine thanks to the good planning of John K for our lunch cruise to the Kabra Hotel. We took a drive through Bouldercombe and picked up Nev & Sue on the way and along with Craig & Judy, Warren & Sue, Mark & Jenny, Earl & Connie, John & Dee, John K, Peter & Shelley arrived at Kabra. Shortly after ordering lunch we were joined by George & Madonna who dropped in on their way back from Biloela. Another good day had by all and yes the food and hospitality was great, thanks Kabra Hotel staff.
John & Dee and George & Madonna drove to Biloela to take part in the Autofeste car show and shine. There were a number of car skill events available to entrants if they wished to try their hand, “spike the spud” barrel event etc. we both decided to leave this to the professionals with their purpose build machines. John & Dee picked up “Top Hot Rod” for the day. We had a safe trip home even though John had his alternator die just outside Rocky and George had a fuel pump issue which caused a couple of moments at traffic lights; great event to attend, well done to the Biloela crew for the day.
There was a number of the Highway 66 members who ventured to Bargara Beach for Rum City Rods & Customs Run. Warren & Sue, Brian & Penny took the vans; while John & Pat, George & Madonna, Earl & Connie, John & Dee lived it up in on site units or Motel rooms. John took out the Rocker cover challenge with his first attempt, beating some big name contenders from Gladstone and the Sunshine coast (Col). Everyone had a great time. A cruise to SeaJays Boats was organised and this was a real eye opener on how the boats are manufactured.
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.
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.
