The event started off with many of us meeting at Bunker Hill servo and a planned leisurely convoy cruise up the Hume Hwy to Echuca via a quick stop in Heathcote. It was a bit like herding cats though, as the group shot off in all directions at different intervals, eventually ending up at the final stop at various times during the afternoon.
A cruise to a local Custom Panel Shop to view their many projects was a treat. I'm sure
Rohanhad something to do with the tour as the majority of cars were 55's... After the workshop tour we were all back to Vic Park in Echuca for the Friday Night Registration. The place was buzzing all evening with loads of cars and people gathered to sign in, grab a snag and catch up with good friends.
The party kicked on afterwards for many at the Moama caravan park with a rowdy bunch ending up at Rowie's to watch the Hawks cement their spot in the Grand Final. The loudest supporter was Rowie of course, (thank god the Hawks won!)
Saturday morning had everyone out cruising the beautiful township of Echuca for the Poker Run and lunch at the Moama Sports Club. The display of classic cars cruising the streets was a stroke of genius with loads of spectators inquiring where the show was, ensuring a great turn out for the Sunday Show n Shine.
Later that afternoon we all boarded two of Echuca's iconic paddle steamers for a leisurely cruise down the river to the Moama RSL. There, everyone enjoyed a fantastic meal followed by some drinking & dancing to the tunes of Exploded View till late.
