    Sunday

    Sunday afternoon saw Grey Ghost and Davidman met at the Longwarry Service Station ready to head into the 10th Annual Victorian Gathering. Brian had the Starcraft caravan on the back and I had the new caravan on the back of my patrol. Doing the gathering in style this year. WE arrived around 4PM and met Croozer (Bruce) who had arrived a little bit earlier. All in all, not a bad trip in, think we missed most of the weekend traffic on the tracks.

    The first night ended about 3:30 AM after maybe one or two drinks.

    Looking forward to everyone else arriving over the next few days for a great 10th Annual Gathering

    Monday

    Monday was a bit of a slow start at camp. Spent the day clearing the river of trees and so on so that theduck race can take place. Also cleaned the camp and the river banks of all the ‘white flowers’ that people had left there, disgusting.

    Matt (Outrage) turned up around tea time and will join us in waiting for more to arrive.

    Looks like we have some ring ins for the Great Duck Race this year, not sure whether they paid their entry fees though.

    Tuesday
    Well today started as another nice quiet day in the high country, after a lazy breakfast we hopped in and cleared out the river so we can get some good duck chutes and duck dragways happening for Saturday's big race.
    Soon enough the maintenance crews started arriving to look after the loos and mow the lawns, big thanks to Madlandy (Craig) and Rob F on the ride on mower and being general groundskeepers.
    Starting to see more people rolling in today with the weather holding nicely too.
