April Club Run 2018
We left Aspley on time, and travelled via the Inner City By-Pass to our destination,
The Glen Hotel at Eight Mile Plains.
On arriving we met up with the Southerners and Cockroaches,
and proceeded to enjoy the "All you can eat" Buffet Breakfast.
After a couple of hours of good banter and, not being hungry anymore,
we all made our various ways home and started preparing for our next outing in May,
which happens to be a trip to Toowoomba on May 20th.
We left Aspley a little late for our Lunch Run to Kenilworth as one of the cars needed some
“ Distilled Water” for the radiator.
Picking up a couple of stragglers near Samford, we motored to Daybora,
and finally to Kenilworth Hotel via Delaney’s Creek, Woodford etc
for a busy but beautiful Lunch.
On our way home we called in to a members place for a great Viewing of his projects, and Works in Progress,
which will keep him occupied for a long time.
( Thank you for that it was a Good Stop on our way home.) Rob ,you should have been there.
Over 350 Klms for Lunch, what a day!

We left Aspley and travelled to the seaside at Scarborough
for our wonderful breakfast at the Power Boat Club.
The usual banter was entered into over coffee and Breakfast
until we had to make our way home again.

We travelled past Tamborine Mountain to our Christmas Lunch Venue,
parked the cars and were mobbed by hungry fans looking at our Transport.
A great meal was devoured and long chats were engaged in until the time came to find our way home
to rest for the remaining hours in the day.
Everyone enjoyed the Breakup.
We wish you all a Very Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year,
and we will see you in the new year.

We had a good rollup on Sunday for our Club Run to Woody Point for
Breakfast at the Belvedere Hotel.
The cars looked great in the Hotel car park.
Breakfast, (early for some ) was served quickly after ordering,
and we all enjoyed the meal and the chat during and afterwards.

Leaving our Service Station meeting place, we motored briskly along the country road to Boonah.
Breakfast was, as usual, very rewarding for the masses.
We encountered outside the venue an extra GT40 that belonged to a local gent
who owned a Garage in the town, and was enjoying breakfast as well.

The 2017 Club GT40 AGM has now been held.
We had a good rollup to enjoy Matthew’s Pizzas.
Handmade Pizzas with fresh toppings, cooked tooo perfection made ones taste buds want to enjoy another slice,
then another slice.
Needless to say we all enjoyed the meal.
There were some statements made from the pastry rolling pin operator there could be a claim for RSI.
But after sampling the outcomes of his handiwork when extra hot peppers were added,
all claims were made non in void.
Having enjoyed generous helpings of Matthew's Home Cooked Pizzas, from his backyard self-constructed oven,
we settled down to the business side of our AGM.
All reports were noted and elections held.
Those elected were...
President : Kevin Pinkstone
Sec/Treas : Lucia Baxter
Webmaster : Wayne Whitehead
Main change this year, is that we are in a good financial position, so we have reduced the Annual Membership Fees
from $50 down to $40.
By the way, they are now due, so please renew/join and enjoy the Club and continue using your toys.
We have done this to entice more of the GT40 enthusiasts who are in the background to join us
in more Club Runs each month.
We are leaning towards more lunch time runs as well as our popular Breakfast outings.
Thank you to Rob who is in a position to assist Kevin with organising the long distance runs.
Thank You Matthew. and the Baxter family for organizing the meal and refreshments.
We met at the Aspley Hypermarket for an 8 am departure to Delaney’s Creek
via Eatons Crossing Rd, and on to Dayboro.
Climbing Mt Mee chasing both Push and Motor Bikes up and down hill and around a couple of corners,
we found our way to The Place 2B Restaurant for our wonderful Breakfast.
We were spoilt with the great service and even greater servings of food
and views of the lake and farm animals.
After long chats and gossips we were not hungry anymore.
The trip home was a bit of a bore with all the straight bits and no hills.
Please make a note, the July Run is our AGM.
Your attendance would be much appreciated .

We met at the Service Station at Yatala, 5 GT40s in all , ready for our trip to the other side of the border.
Motoring down the Freeway we turned at Nerang, and followed the Nerang- Murwillumbah Rd
to the busy town, and then made our way to Tumbulgum.
On arriving we met up with the “ Early Birds” Col and Michael who had a sleep in,
as they only live almost within walking distance from the Hotel.
(They parked their GT40 outside the Hotel )
Good Food and good company, and a great Chat was had by all.
Narelle and I covered 335 klms for our Lunch.

We left "The Pad" at the Bremer River on the Warrego Highway,
and travelled to the Plainlands Hotel, Plainlands,
for our slightly later than normal breakfast.(8:30)
Arriving a little early and tying the Beasts up in the bitumen paddock,
we proceeded to dine like Kings & Queens over Breakfast.
Just after 11:00, we decided that we had better make room for other patrons,
as we were not hungry anymore.
As we motored home we waved "Ta Ta" to members as they broke Ranks
and went on their merry way, including one from the other side of the Border.
We travelled to the Grand View Hotel at Cleveland for our Seaview Breakfast beside the water,
with members enjoying their usual Fare and a good chat between mouthfuls.
The trip home was much less eventful than last time ( when it poured ) as the Sun was shining.
Travelling from Aspley at a later time, we arrived at Club Pine Rivers Bowls Club
and enjoyed a hearty Breakfast overlooking the bowling green .
The usual Banter was heard during our Smorgasbord encounter.
At this hour on a Sunday meant plenty of parking was available for our Beasts.
We left our meeting place at Aspley and motored to our Nose-Bag site
at the Motor Boat Club at Scarborough.
Seated on the water side of things, we enjoyed our hearty Breakfast, and a good Chat.
There seemed to be a lot of nice boats wasting their time at the wharves.
A multitude of car brands were used for our transport,
including a Red Machine not seen before at our events.
The Baxters have outdone themselves again, with the nice Jaguar.(looks great)
One E Type Jag - A credit to the Baxter family who had altogether worked on this immaculate restoration
Our Christmas Breakup Lunch this year was a trip to Harrigan’s Irish Pub Drift Inn
At Jacobs Well.
Luckily we arrived early as the car park filled as we wandered to the front door.
(A good sign that a lot of people loved the Venue )
We were not disappointed. Good Service, Good Food and Great Company.
It was good to see such a larger happy rollout for our final Run for 2016.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
See you on Jan 22nd for our Jan 2017 Run.
