TRIP NOTES – Peter with Judith’s in ItalicsPeter - Following the disappointment of having to postpone the Israelite Bay Explorer due to the closure of most of the National Parks areas east of the bay after the unseasonal storms in February, Bob and Bridget were determined to go camping and came up with an alternative plan further west on the coast. With date changes, most of the original Israelite Bay trippers couldn't re-arrange plans so...

Most of the trip participants met on the Friday at Big Valley Campground. Always a welcoming place, everyone settled quickly into their respective campsites. We headed out to Colonial Brewery around 6pm for an evening of cheap pizzas and cold ales. After the heat of Perth over the preceding days the chill of the Margaret River region came as a crisp surprise. Arriving back at Big Valley most trip participants sought the refuge of...

18 vehicles numbers dropped down to 16… and thank you for those two notifications… we weren't left sitting there wondering.
A large meeting spot to accommodate us all had been found pre-trip adjacent the Caltex at Nowergorup, (North Wanneroo). We spread out along a quiet service road exiting onto Karoborup Rd to head North.
Paul Ryan arrived last… so was ‘volunteered’ to be Tail End Charlie.
Bruce gave an entertaining brief on what to expect..and...

Another successful event held at Willowbrook Farm. Willowbrook managers, Bill and Lil did an awesome job of making sure the club was well looked after. The location was ideal for hosting a large group such as ours. Most of the attendees camped for 2 nights beginning on Friday. The Christmas BBQ dinner was held Saturday evening under the large verandah at the rear of Willowbrook farm homestead overlooking the vast lawn area.
46 adults and 9 kids attended. The afternoon began with a few games to keep the children occupied. Happy hour was...

Lake Johnson, Norseman, Old Telegraph Line, Mt Ragged, Israelite Bay, Bilbunya Dunes, Toolina Rockhole, Eyre Hwy, Fraser Range.

We can see who books for the trip and can always extend a day or two if necessary. These dates seem good as it gives us 10 days for the trip but only one week off work for those not lucky enough to be retired!
Rating - 3-4 (we wont be...
The long weekend in June was set aside as an Association event with the purpose of not only getting as large a collection of affiliated clubs as possible but also to provide the Albany 4WD Club with a working example of how the Association functions. The attendance of over 160 people from a wide range of clubs was a clear indication of the enthusiasm generated by the Association Committee. The venue was the Albany Rifle Club down by the...
