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.
