Mmmmm. Bacon, eggs, toast, mince, baked beans, chips, tea, coffee. Great Grub.
AND the girls WENT SHOPPING at the markets across the road, thereby missing out on all
the gossip, true stories and useful information that was transferred among the rest of us.
12 noon. Prize giving is announced.
12.15 p.m. Barry Wood (the organizer) thanked everybody who a) came, b) helped, c) cooked, d) sponsored prizes. Then the winners were announced. Leyland did ok: 1. Furthest travelled,
1.00 p.m. We all pretty well went home, except Alex who had already left to attend another school function at Auckland Grammar (name-dropping).

Gordon and Ian were delayed by work commitments in Whangarei, they had registered but couldn't attend.
Peter and Mikaela were unable to attend, as Mikaela was preparing for surgery on Monday.
Steve Learmonth was unable to attend due to last minute commitments.
Gordon Lennox attended (without his P76).

The weather was beaut. Thanks to the Waikato crews for the support of another easy and relaxing day in the heart of Auckland territory.

Below is President Mike receiving his Longest Distance Travelled award and club stalwart Alec Reid steadying himself on the teardrop Leyland banner, or is he showing it off? I'm glad of the explanation of the exhibit shortage but here is still a few more could be there. Central Group will have to do better in February!
