A great day was organised by Colin Hinkley recently. After meeting at the info centre where Ronnie entertained us playing with the Yamaha’s carbies we headed up the Albany Highway to The Bakery in Mt Barker for smoko. They’ve got new premises now and worth more visits.
We then had an excellent ride through the
Porongorups before heading down Chester Pass Road to the Clay Target
Club. By the way Ronnie’s piece of wisdom for the day was “A day
without mechanic-ing is a day not worth living” - may be a bit tongue
Great premises, a BBQ was lit and lunch was
cooked. After lunch we took it in turns having a go at shooting the
clay targets. Five at a time were lined up with helpers for each
shooter. Thanks Colin, Dave, Phil, Ben and all other helpers.
Good fun, with some potential Rambos amongst our crowd. The targets are activated by voice. Shout “Pull” and one shoots out. While Ronnie was talking in his usual quiet voice he was activating heaps of the red targets which were whizzing everywhere.
After we’d killed enough clay targets we headed back to the clubhouse where Yvonne had provided afternoon tea - a lovely surprise.
Thanks Colin (and your helpers) for a great day and thanks again to Yvonne for the cakes.
