 Camp Canobolas weekend


camp canobolas

from Saturday 12th to Sunday 13th November, 2016

A total of twenty-one camper trailers, caravans, crossovers and tents arrived for the second Canobolas Scout Camp Australian CamperTrailers Group Christmas get together. Most arrived on Friday with those who still have work commitments arriving on Saturday.

A few headed for the top of Mount Canobolas for a picnic tea and watch the sun go down but a cool wind made it a short and hurried stop, the sunset spoiled by a lot of bushfire smoke haze but Rob and Carolyn still managed to get some great pictures.

After a huge thunderstorm swept through on Friday night, typical Orange weather, many walked around Lake Canobolas and toured the region checking out wineries and markets and finished the day with a 3pm happy hour during which new members Mark, Tanya and Stevie-Jane were welcomed followed by the now traditional Christmas dinner.

Sunday was another day of site seeing and just chilling out, but a threatening weather report for heavy rain overnight and into next day saw many make a wise decision to pack up dry and head for home and those that stayed can only attest to the fact the weather man got it right.

A huge thank you to all who helped set up tables and decorations and pitched in to help clean up after, and I must say that was everyone who attended, you all helped make it a great night.

Hope to see you all next year.
