Another pleasurable and leisurely cruise North

Port Neill Plod

It was another good roll up of Members and their vehicles as they assembled at Sponsor of the day, Hagen Zerk’s Automotive workshop.

The overflow filled the adjacent Mitre 10 carpark before the briefing from Event Coordinator Neville Will, photo opportunities and the usual social chit-chat.  This event saw 48 members and 26 cars attending.  Rick Price was as astute as always in getting the attendance sheet signed by those present .  A great variety of vehicles took part, including a few new members. The assembly raised quite a bit of interest from passers by, as well as around town and on the route to Tumby Bay and Pt Neill.

The weather Gods were looking down on us again and we had another beautiful sunny day to drive to Pt Neill via Tumby Bay where members availed themselves of the opportunity to look at the painting on the Tumby Silos, and the Street Art which is scattered throughout the township.  A coffee was had at the Travellers Rest spot, and members strolled around the town taking in the mosaics, wall art and lovely foreshore.







The various murals throughout Tumby Bay made for an interesting cruise around town

The Ulysses Club added to the numbers at “The Green Shed” in Port Neill

On arriving in Pt Neill at the green shed, the Ulysses Motorbike group were also there, so the BBQ was hot and ready for us to take over, as they had just finished their cooking.

What a day for a beach side BBQ?

With the ever-trustworthy Geoff Phillips absent, due to a knee reconstruction last week, other members jumped into action to assist Neville and Debbie Will who had transported the catering and equipment. Jobs were delegated and the bbq, kettle and onions were all underway within a short time and members shared in some very yummy salads and sweets.

The day’s Sponsor allowed the Rodda’s to attend in their Commodore, and they drove away winners of the Eyre Fuel’s voucher!!!


The $50 Eyre Fuels voucher was won by Tony Rodda.  With the Best Looking Driver Award (no award presented) apparently going to Carolyn Anderson.

Cooks on the day were Kym Anderson, Roly Binns, Glenn Karutz and Ian Gordon.  Geoff leaves a big gap to fill, does’t he guys?  Andrew Brooks took on the Official Photographer role with gusto.  Many thanks Andrew for the pictures.

Sincere thanks once again to Neville and Debbie Will, and all those who banded together to assist to make the day go smoothly.
