Gippslanders 10th Birthday at Lake Naracan Victoria
Many months ago, Norm Holyoak rang and asked, Where will you be on March 19? While I might have been tempted to say How the hell do I know? I refrained from doing so, thought about it and said Probably on the way to the CMCA Rally at Horsham. Good, he replied, then you can come to our birthday party. Thats how we came to go to the Gippslanders Chapter birthday party and I am glad I engaged brain before opening mouth! We had a fantastic weekend, even allowing for the fact that the driver didnt listen to the navigator and had to do three U turns the venue! After the U turns, we eventually arrived at TS Latrobe on Lake Narracan, north of Newborough, in the industrial Latrobe Valley. We were greeted by Richard (Dick) Percy who was in charge of parking (or is that siting?) for the weekend. Being early in, we were on the top level near the large shed. Later arrivals were parked lakeside and that was very scenic, especially in the morning when there were beautiful reflections to be seen on the water.
