Meet at the club rooms about 12 ,12 30 and bring your afternoon tea. Note, there is a short stretch of gravel. John also suggested we have a run to Kakanui, stopping at the Oamaru market, continuing on to visit a man who makes interesting handcrafts, and then have a beach bar b que/picnic. This could be a great end of year event? Any thoughts on All Day Bay? But first, the Swap meet this coming Saturday see you there. safe motoring Suzanne.
