Waurn Ponds, Geelong
17 cars met at Frewville at 5.30am for a 6.00am departure. We travelled straight through to Keith where
we stopped at the bakery for breakfast and to top up some tanks. After leaving Keith we drove on to
Penola where it began to rain. We had a short stop at Penola then ventured on to Hamilton where we all
stopped for lunch. Unfortunately the rain didn’t leave us and we must say that the state of the roads left
a lot to be desired. From Hamilton we drove to Geelong where we had planned to have pizzas for
dinner, but due to the rainy weather we decided to eat out and we enjoyed a nice meal at the Fyansford
Hotel. Saturday was a “free” day for car cleaning and polishing; luckily the rain had passed so everyone
was happy. That night we all gathered at the shelter in the caravan park and enjoyed a great get together
with a barbecue supplied by the Club.
Sunday morning we met at the front gate at 7am and it was off to the Kiwanis All Ford Day at Waurn
Ponds. When we arrived it was “all hands on deck” to set up the marquees and display, then onto
cleaning and polishing - again! Many thanks to everyone for their help in setting up! The day was a
HUGE success with over 900 cars attending and the trophy presentation was even better with Sean
Malone and Judy Geier taking out 1st and 2nd trophies respectively in their category and Brett Moseley
won 2nd place in his category. A great achievement indeed considering the number of cars judged! Well
done to the three of you!
Sunday night we enjoyed ourselves with a dinner at the Belmont Hotel before leaving the park on
Monday morning. Monday saw the group leave in their respective ways and head for Adelaide. Some
chose to stay longer in Geelong, while others went to Ballarat for breakfast at the Pancake Kitchen before
continuing their journeys.
All in all a wonderful weekend was had by all. We would like to thank each and every one of you for
making the weekend a great success!
Cheers, Peter & Helen Wadham.
