Corvette club of South Australia Inc.


Tony & Faye's run to Earl of Leicester

Sunday 7th January 2018, first run for the New Year started at the Nest Cafe at Walkerville. Fourteen Corvettes carrying 27 club members met prior to departure at 10:00 am. The run was to travel up to Birdwood via Houghton, completing a questionnaire as we travelled, [on completion, prizes were to be awarded to the highest score, second place and an encouragement award for last place]. As occupants needed to see various landmarks and points of interest that answered the questions, we travelled at a leisurely pace.
We left The Nest and meandered up through Lower North East Rd, through Paradise, Houghton, Gumeracha and arrived in Birdwood. A group of Lotus enthusiasts reached the Pomegranate Cafe before us.

We departed Birdwood [where the van Doorns left us for another engagement] and headed down through Mt Torrens and Woodside [where the Falconers & Mac (the cute puppy) turned off]. Continuing on to Uraidla we cruised down Greenhill Rd, enjoying the scenery while still a bit green, ending our cruise at The Earl of Leicester in Leicester St, Parkside.
A fine fare of pub food was enjoyed by all in a relaxed welcoming environment. All enjoyed their meals. Quiz results. First Place;- John & Jenny, Runner Up;- Peter B. & Chris, Encouragement Award;- Lynda & Peter.

Was a great day, with good company and an excellent turnout for the first run of the year. Seems all enjoyed the venues, the pace, the distance and the food. It was suggested that a quiz run be an annual event as this was the third year in a row??

The only snag was that Peter's car ran out of water somewhere, luckily the temperature was lower than the day before or it could have caused overheating and possible damage.

Thanks to all who attended and made it a great run. Cheers Faye & Tony.
