MG club attends car park opening
At 6am rain bearing clouds were continuing to roll in from the east threatening our chapter involvement in the official opening of Yeppoon's Multi Story Car Park. But by 8am, the clouds were still there but they appeared to have dropped most of their rain.
This allowed some of our expected members to arrive at Yeppoon's Beaman Park in preparation for departure to the new Multi Story car park. The three Capricorn chapter cars were directed into the bottom of the car park waiting for a signal for them to drive out into Hill Street entrance/exit.
Following the usual council and government speeches and all four officials being involved with the cutting of the ribbon, Stuart Clark was the first vehicle to officially enter the park with Santa Clause on board happily waving to the crowd present while ringing his bell.
This was followed by Trevor Andersen with one of Santa's Elves on board and George Ganter also carrying a Santa's Elve.
They were then followed by Rick and Michelle Taylor, Gurney Clamp and Ada Clark driving through the lower levels of the Car Park to the top where they were once again joined by officials for photo shoots with car owners given a piece of the official opening ribbon. Our members agreed that it was a pleasant experience to be involved. Following the opening Stuart and Ada Clark, Trevor Andersen and Gurney Clamp followed Rick and Michelle to the Causeway Lake for a lunch of fish "n" chips. The next ride will be Friday, December 16 at the re-opening of Mt Archer access road.
