river camp weekend
Saturday 19th to Sunday 20th January, 2019
CamperTrailers beach theme bbq tea
The 2019 River Camp on the Myall River
has just been completed. 26 Couples attended the camp with several arriving
a week before and also some staying on to the Wednesday after.
Weather throughout was pretty good with many members using the river to cool
off or just make it another place to have a drink. A change in park
ownership saw new caretakers in Vince and Cheryl being in control of the
grounds and also attending the Saturday afternoon drinks and Saturday
evening dinner. They were very amenable to us as a group and I am sure that
anyone calling in during the year and mentioning that they were part of the
CamperTrailers Group will be well looked after. Thanks to them we were also
able to use a river frontage block for our Saturday afternoon get together
which set the scene for a great evening. Thanks to all the ladies for
providing excellent side salads for the main meal and those cooks who slaved
over a hot fire for the main dinner.
During the week members participated in many activities including golf, aqua
aerobics, Nelson Bay cruises, and fishing the beach or river. Dave Cook kept
his excellent record of releasing his entire catch before any member could
It was pleasing to see newcomers Belinda and Tom Latimer and Mick and Louise
Perkins attend together with several couples making their second appearance
at a CamperTrailers meet. All seemed to enjoy the meeting and I am sure we
will see them again in the future.
Several new Hybrids made an appearance for their first time and thanks to
their proud owners for allowing an inspection. These are invaluable when
someone is considering an upgrade in the near future.
Thank you all for your attendance, friendships only seem to get better after
each of our Australian CamperTrailers weekend get togethers.
