Haven't had anyone pull out .. so list remains unchanged at the moment

Who wouldn't be keen for a Swift Steak and some live music after a good drive with some mates?

Always good to see a Cappa out and about ;)

The worst predicted at the moment is some light showers
http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/charts/viewer/index.shtml
This is the page I use to watch weather forecasts on the BOM
Earlier this week they were predicting around 5mm of rain but the latest
maps have brought that back to just about nothing

If difficult to keep your eyes on the road for some sections of the cruise
with the elevations we will be hitting.. Fingers crossed for a clear day

6.30am and most of the rain around Brissy is falling north of Caboolture
There are some light showers in the vicinity of Beenleigh and nothing over the course

Total recorded rainfall for the area is less than 5mm over the past 24hours
. . . . not that I needed any convincing :)

See you all at Hardys Road by 10AM .. or come join me for a breakfast at Yatala Pies before 9AM
If you can bring UHF we will be on channel 13 for the day :wink:

For a day that started out a little wet grey and dull it certainly turned into a good days drive.
Good company, a good variety of roads and a good feed at the end of the drive.
Thank you again to everyone that came along. Plenty of things discussed through the day to
ensure that we have more events comming up. Discussion about making a trip out to Willowbank
on a Wednesday for some clear runs on a 1/4 mile. Some of us are keen to make a similar course on a night run with a visit to the local glow worm colony.

Of course we will all be turning up to the National Run.

For anyone who didn't get to come along here is a little taste of the day.

I concur..
Great days drive.
Almost didn't go because it was raining at my place in the morning.
But I got sunburnt eating my swift steak and listening to some jokers on stage.

Thank again to all who attended. Was great to meet you all.

Thanks again for organising the cruise, Azza.
Ended up getting a half decent run back up the mountain on the way home on the smooth section. Once I got to the rough stuff it was 40 all the way behind every Sunday driver out there :x

A few pics from my phone...

Went for a fang over Tamborine Mnt on the weekend to visit a mate on the other side and to my surprise they have fixed most of the rough road at the top of the mountain heading down to the Bearded Dragon (where that numpty in the commondoor held all of us up :x ). I think there was only 3 or 4 corners left that need fixing up for the whole twisty section to be smooth as a baby's butt 8)
