Captains Flat Run & BBQ
Sunday, 6 November 2011

A great spring day was ordered and received for the annual Captains Flat run, with 32 riders gathered at the Spanish Club awaiting the 10:30am departure. With the events officer away it was up to yours truly to get them under way, so after a short riders brief I sent moderns off first then the oldies on their way to "The Flat" knowing that Allan and Chris were waiting with the BBQ fired up.

Craig and Lisa only rode a short way as they had to be back early for a party. The rest continued on and came across what Ron Allen said was some "bloody cow cocky" out for a Sunday drive... but no, it turned out to be our Pres and the Missus on their way to the BBQ in the ROLLER no doubt!

When I arrived (one of the last) Allan and Chris had a great spread laid out with lots of salads, healthy stuff and a variety of breads and of course the Snags and Onions ready, and had started feeding the masses. Stu and John arrived with an empty backup trailer and no extra passengers which was good to see.

After an hour or so with belly's full and thirsts quenched, people started to make their way home. Thanks to Allan and Chris for their efforts. It was enjoyed by all, and I hope they found a home for the leftover snags. Thanks also to Stu Ross and John Broad with the backup trailer.

This was another well attended club ride on a beaut spring day and thanks to all who attended and volunteered.
