This weekend was the Heretaunga Caravan Club’s 40th Anniversary.  We were extremely lucky with the beautiful weather that we had.  The beginning of June being the start of Winter we never really know what to expect

IMG_9199We had to have a Birthday Cake.IMG_9202Derek being President had the job of cutting the cake.IMG_9213We’ll all be drinking out of these at rallies from now on.IMG_9201Now its time for the official duties. New members initiation into our club.

The program for the weekend was planned in advance and included an afternoon tea at Tui Brewery Headquarters at Mangatainoka (just for the boys of course).  This was very popular on Saturday afternoon and we had trouble finding seats initially.  There was a group of Motorcyclists and their pillion passengers that were enjoying the facilities as well. A great time was had by all and then we headed back to camp to partake in 4 zzzz’s.  They can’t get enough of that stuff.  The evening was spent in reminiscing over the many photos viewed on Selwyn’s projector and screen.  Memories are great for the old grey matter.

Sunday morning was free until a bush walk at 2pm and then our 40th Anniversary Dinner at the Purple Haze Cafe in the evening.

Nice and close to the amenities in case of inclement weather, a heavy frost on Saturday morning but we couldn't have asked for better weather considering the time of year.
