Range of MG fun in Mount Morgan

COASTAL members awoke to threatening showers that cleared prior to Gurney and Gloria Clamp, Jenny and mum Rosie departing Yeppoon and arriving on time at Rockhampton's Kershaw Gardens.

There, the crew was greeted by Terry Dwyer and Anne Burbridge looking refreshed after their recent return from an extended trip overseas.

Rodney Blair in his newly acquired green MG B, Neville and Barbara Funch, Bob and Yvonne Holbeck, Alan and Trudie Stacey, Rosco James along with new members John and Angela Rowlands who travelled from Gladstone also joined the days outing.

The trip up the Mt Morgan range was one that as usual was enjoyed by all, as was the trip to the pleasant surrounds of the Mt Morgan Dam for morning tea.

Following the break, the group travelled through Mt Morgan township to the town cemetery to allow the members to view all the head stones that held a lot of history of the early days of Mt Morgan and finding the surprising number of mine workers who died at the gold mine during its peak years of operation and saving Australia.

The next stop was Mt Morgan's Grand Hotel where we all enjoyed the hospitality of management and staff who provided us with well prepared lunch meals.

After lunch most members had different events they had to attend in the afternoon, either in Rockhampton or Mt Morgan, so most went their separate ways with the Funchs, Clamps and Rowlands all headed home via Razorback.

Terry Dwyer and Anne Burbidge won the poker run with three aces.

While we were enjoying our tour to Mt Morgan, Glenys Benson, Trevor Andersen's partner, was picking up her prize for winning runner-up in the best native garden in Livingston Shire, after she won the first prize for the same thing at the Rockhampton shire awards.

Congratulations Glenis.
