Despite the light rain most of the day, Alan & Denise, Simon, Dave & Jane represented the club at this fundraising event in Campbelltown.
The rain had the number of cars attending on the day down a little but the organisers were still pleased with a little over $12000.00 being raised for cancer research at Campbelltown Hospital.
Saturday 9th November 2013
Due to a mix up with the dates, our annual McHappy Day it wasnt a big turn out. But we still managed 17 cars on the day and were able to donate over $500 to the charity. The manager was impressed with our display an even noted he had one of the busiest hours while we where there. Everyone had a great day and had some fun, even scored some bargains at the auctions, except Tony who missed out on an award; maybe will need to get him one for best VP .
Sunday 10th November 2013
Yes it rained, but we still had a good club prescence.
After meeting at Padstow Maccas we travelled the short distance to Engadine where entry to the show was mush better than last year – not perfect but better.
We were able to set up and erect our tent before the rain set in for the day.
There were brief periods where the rain stopped and the sun made an appearance which allowed us time to have a look at the rest of the cars on display.
Despite the rain there was still plenty to see and do and the hot food was a blessing, even for those who tried to keep warm by spilling gravy down the front of their shirts.

Simon and Alan represented the club at this annual fundraising event.
Fortunately the weather was hot and sunny with not too much smoke haze about.
As usual there was plenty to see and do.
Lots of cars and bikes on display and a lot of street stalls catering for everything you could want.
Always a good event to attend.
Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th October 2013
Only 5 cars made the venture to Canberra. Meeting at the truck stop near the Picton turnoff, we headed through a thick smoke haze till we came to Cockington Green in Canberra. There we wandered around for a few hours admiring all the gardens etc before having lunch in the grounds. For Donna and Pete who had never been here before, it turned out to a very enjoyable adventure.
We then headed to our motel in Queanbeyan for a rest and some well earned liquid refreshments. After having dinner at the local Leagues Club we headed back to our motel for some more amber liquid. We all thoroughly enjoyed each others company full of laughs and fun.
On Sunday morning after a very hearty breakfast at a local cafe, we went up to Mt Ainslie for a look across Canberra but unfortunately the skies were quite full of smoke haze so it was a little difficult to see all of Canberra. We then made our way to the War Memorial to view the magnificent artifacts that are held in this building. It was well worth the visit.
We then headed for home as a group keeping an eye on Pete as he was having problems with his car stalling a number of times whilst on the road. We managed to sort his problem out for a problem free run home.
Our thanks must go to Pat from the ACT & Queanbeyan Pre 80′s Car Enthusiasts who met us at Cockington Green and became our host and guide over the 2 days. He led us too our destinations enthusiastically and it was greatly appreciated

There we met up with Other Torana Clubs that had arrived for Toranafest.
On Saturday after breakfast there was time walk through the motel to admire other owners cars, or wash our cars before the cruise down to Stockton Reserve with the other 130 torana’s that had turned up. Belinda Peacock drove John Shephard on the Saturday cruise.
Sunday morning saw approx 25 Toranas from various clubs meet at Thornleigh Maccas for the run up the M1 to Newcastle. It was an awesome sight to see so many Toranas in one group on the road.
There was a total of 350 Toranas assembled and on display in Newcastle. The weather was warm and mostly sunny. The light shower of rain was brief.
