JULY SUNDAY 16th CLUB RUN. (Amended run from the Wobble Knocker)
It is the middle of winter so we have decided to have a small run just to get out of the house and go somewhere warm and cosy. Today we will meet at Gary and Sue’s place in Somerville at around 10am and go for a nice drive to Red Hill for lunch at the ‘Food on the Hill Café’ via Hastings and Coolart. Afterwards we will head to Cape Schanck and take in the sights of Red Hill and Shoreham onto the Cape Schanck Lighthouse. Then it is off down the hill to Rosebud and a wander around for those who want to. Then afterwards we can have a nice drive home via Peninsula Link.
AUGUST, SUNDAY 6th. CLUB RUN & AGM.
This date has been set aside for our AGM. This year our AGM will be held at the Gembrook Community Hall, Gembrook-Pakenham Rd, Gembrook. Meet at the Gembrook Community Hall at 11am where we will hold the meeting and finish up with some tucker. The club will have the BBQ on hand and will be supplying meat, sausages and Peter’s famous rissoles. Everyone please bring a plate as we have done in the past. PLEASE let Sue know what plate you intend to bring so we don’t end up with 20 plates of lettuce!! Please put this date in your calendar.
AUGUST, SUNDAY 20th. CLUB RUN to the beautiful ‘Walhalla’
Bryce Eishold has kindly suggested this run. Details and meeting point in future Wobble Knocker magazines.
SEPTEMBER 10th. CLUB RUN DANDENONGS – SKY HIGH.
Today we are off to the Dandenong’s, specifically Mt. Dandenong. After meeting at Upper Ferntree Gully, we will head up the Dandenong’s and stop off at the beautiful William Ricketts Sanctuary for a wander around for an hour or so. Then we will drive up the top to the Sky High Restaurant for a catered lunch and a look over the views of Melbourne. Lunch will be a special Sunday Roast which will be sponsored by the club. Members pay $20.00 each adult and Non-Members $35.00. BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL, contact the club. Promises to be a great day, weather permitting.
SEPTEMBER, SUNDAY 24th. CLUB RUN.
A run with a bit of a difference. Meet at Gary and Sues for a short run to Moonlit Sanctuary, Tyabb-Tooradin Road. This is the best place around to see our Aussie Animals. Meet kangaroos, wombats, dingoes, colourful birds, koalas and make sure you take photos! Wander through the bush food garden, smelling the unique aromas of the bush tucker plants. The ambience of Moonlit Sanctuary, eco-accredited, and set in natural bushland places it in a class of its own. On site café for those who need a coffee hit and a bit of bush tucker food, as well as normal food for the soft hearted. Admission charge is $20 adult or $18 seniors. Price will be negotiated on the number of members who come along and will be partly subsidised by the club.
OCTOBER, SUNDAY 15th. CLUB RUN
We are off today to the RAAF Base at Point Cook for a tour and lunch at this magnificent museum. Further details in future newsletters but it promises to be one great day out and is a run that has been on my mind for quite some time.
