Grampians Weekend Trip (20-21 April)

<

p>Well, our first Club weekend for the year has now come and gone with 37 Members (including a few family and friends) attending at Halls Gap. The weather was kind, despite the forecast for a little rain, though both the mornings and evenings were quite chilly. Some stayed for 1 night and others for 3 – we were scattered all over town, which meant that we were all within 4 minutes of each other!! (Halls Gap is not very big). We stayed in caravans, YHA, flats, motels and apartments, ate out, drank lots of coffee in between times, bought other miscellaneous stuff and hopefully helped the local economy.
