Farewell to Edgar’s hupmobile. What a great turnout of cars for the rally on Sat 15th July. All Edgar’s children and grandchildren were there for this memorable rally. They took turns at being passenger. A great day was had by all. May the Hup participate in many more rallies.
An enjoyable and eventful morning tea rally. 9 cars left the starting point, the clubrooms, at 9:30am. We had a leisurely, scenic drive along the Mary Valley Rd through Dagun and onto Amamoor. It was very busy at Aamamoor’s Blue and White Teapot cafe and Market Garden. After dropping in there we meandered along to Amama Park where we indulged in morning tea and a chat (and more chat). The cars looked right at home parked under the shady trees. From there the group split. 6 cars choose to head back to Gympie via Cedar Grove, the Country Music Muster site and over the range through Langshaw. The water was refreshing at Cedar Grove. Old cars cut their teeth on dirt roads. Ralph’s car had a breakdown just before getting back on the bitumen at Langshaw. I believe he made it home for a late lunch. The others made their own way back to Gympie.
It was lovely to see so many club members attend the morning tea at the Gympie Mining Museum cafe on Wednesday. At this event, club president Brian, honoured 6 long term members with life membership of the club. Congratulations must go to Wally, Don, George, Peter, Eric and Athol. Also thanks must go to their good ladies for all their hard work and dedication to the club. Behind every good man there is a good lady. It was a lovely gathering. Great to catch up with some of the more senior members, they always have a story to tell.
