river camp weekend
Saturday 6th to Sunday 7th February 2016
The first Australian CamperTrailers
Group weekend in February saw 35 camper trailers and their owners descend on
the Myall River Camp for the 3rd year running. Together with several friends
attending, a very social time was had by all. Some members arrived as early
as the Wednesday and several stayed on for a number of days after the camp
had ended. Many attended as first timers to the River Camp and were
impressed with the site overall.
Some members took drives to Hawks Nest and also up to the Myall Lakes
National Park over the weekend and a few displayed their fishing skills in
front of the camp site with Doug Peisley capturing a big audience with his
struggle with a large sting ray that lasted over half an hour.
Three cars took to the beach on the Saturday with a ranger of the park
following us to the Gibber. Fortunately all had a beach licence and the
ranger was very informative regarding an old Aboriginal site over the
Saturday night featured the true Aussie Bar-b-que cooking over the open
fire. Nearly all attended with most getting into the “beach theme“. Overall
John Eller was the outstanding male dresser with a beautiful matching attire
from Vinnies. John says the girl at the counter was astounded that he could
pick up two items that were completely mismatched and intend to wear them at
the same time. Jenny Peisley and Karen Wray were stunning in their pink
Flamingo ensembles that were inspired by an alternate group that were
camping at the same time.
Anita and I would like to thank all those for attending especially those
attending their first meet and hope to see you next year. We would also like
to thank Henry and Elaine for being so helpful and allowing us to use a
prime block for our recreational area which was appreciated by all. The
evening on the Wednesday night and also on the Saturday night was
unbelievable with the sunset and reflections worth the trip by themselves.
Thank you once again for attending.
