DAY 194 Saturday 19th October
Another pancake breakfast with KIT (Kids in Tow) and as usual, great stuff, and I did. Did some GGs business with 2 new members joining our group. Easy morning with a photo taken from an aircraft of the entire camp site, which is very impressive, was picked up from the main office.
We then joined the group at the Tow Ed site to hear some words of wisdom on the art of reversing a caravan onto a site in a van park. Still looks all very easy in the middle of a five acre paddock, but in the narrow track of a park with cars and vans everywhere, quite a different story.
Lunch was next before we returned to the Founders Pavillion for the second part of the Tow Ed presentation. This gentleman had some confusing advice at times, but interesting all the same.
We then had some local young ladies do some modern dance for us. Called “Dance with Attitude” they ranged from 4 or 5 through to around 16, although not well located for most of the viewing audience, they were very talented.
The Australian Caravan Club Ltd, Annual General Meeting, was then opened by Chairman Tom Smith and this progressed smoothly through to Conversation with the Board segment of the afternoon. Afternoon tea was next, and then we all retired to our bathrooms to do a mission impossible and make ourselves presentable because we are going to the ACC AGM Dinner Dance tonight. On arrival at the hall there was great excitement and anticipation as the hall was awash with flashing lights and red, green and white balloons all standing on the round tables with around 10 chairs set out for us.
Then the girls began to sing, the whole room stopped and then away they went, dancing before dinner. A much better approach to serving dinner was used here. Large platters of food were placed on the tables and each person took their share of chicken or beef or potatoes, then dessert was served the same way. Great planning whoever thought it up. It should have been used earlier.
I think in my opinion that everybody in that hall had a terrific night including those two women who had hats for every song and guitars and canastas and talent. Thanks Ladies
During the evening it was suggested that we do a fund raiser to assist the New South Wales fire victims. At the end of the evening an amazing $3000.00 had been collected from all the bank accounts of the groups present at the muster, and there is to be more tomorrow.
Home late and then bed.
