Members of the Bundaberg 4WD Club headed to their club’s campsite on the banks of the Kolan River to celebrate the end of what had been yet another fun-filled year of off roading and social activities.
The weekend had us laying pavers to tidy up our onsite shed and undercover area.
We thank Errol Bauer from EB Projects for the donation of the pavers and Ergon Energy for the assistance in getting them to site.
The support of local companies and the generous property owner that allows us to have an area to carry out driver training and other activities helps our club grow and stay the biggest country club in Queensland.
Not all weekend was taken up by work.
The group ushered in the new year by having a '22 themed night.
Some got a little more into it than others with tutus featuring as the clothing of choice.
A group meal saw a multitude of dishes served up to the hungry crowd, lucky everyone likes chicken, as every person had the same idea on the choice of meat – It’s surprising how many ways you can cook poultry!
Recent rains have seen the Fred Haigh Dam rise slightly, and evidence of some big inflows could be seen due to the debris in the trees.
The river still had some movement on the weekend and the club kayaks got used to explore the waterway.
The dam is still less than half full and it has a long way to go to get water levels back to where they were when club members started camping there.
The start of a new year has plenty of activities planned with our trip calendar starting to fill up with plenty of activities to keep us out of the house.
