Pumpkin Festival trip report.
Jim karen and Jay or Peter in the awesome troopy were first to arrive at camp on Friday morning. Deno and myself around 20 minutes after Peter . Kevin, Julie and Kevin’s mum and dad arrived just before lunch. Next to follow during the afternoon was Eddy and Chris and then Brad and Sam later.
During the Friday arvo we were amused by a 2 story 5 wheeler being towed by a ford ranger. Later on Kev ends up going to their rescue to help with electric problems. They were extremely grateful for as the guy needed power for medical reasons at night. Well done Kev. Still think the business needs to expand to caravans. As always a great night relaxing around Kev and Julies gas heater and a good night had by all.
Saturday morning encountered a slow start but all of the camp crew bar Deno and myself due to medical issues still, went off to Boat Mountain for a morning walk. Thanks for the video and pics Karen. It showed a great time had by all. Chris and Dayn arrived Saturday morning to finish the group. Saturday afternoon ended up with us doing a couple of winery trips and a drive to Peterson Dam. Beautiful country by the way. We were going to head to a water fall but a consensus decided that return to camp was the go. Think a Rabbitos game and a drink was a good factor to that. Well done Rabbitos Jim. Just relaxing around camp enjoying great company was the go for the rest of Saturday evening around a great open fire pit with a surprise visit from Gail and co.
Sunday ended up us all heading off our separate ways mostly some focused on cooking shows, others on looking around markets and the street parade. Also there was quite a few other attractions to enjoy. Pig races seemed to be popular. Chris was even spotted there too. Some of the guys started up the hill by 2 pm excited by the anticipation of the pumpkin roll. Fun was had by all watching that. After pumpkin roll most headed back to pack up and depart for home.
Thanks all for a great weekend. Cheers Rob
