This February event was the first lunch run to include a drive from morning tea to lunch for the year. 28 of us met for morning tea at The Republic Café Uraidla then via an enjoyable route to lunch at Flagstaff Hotel Darlington where we were met by another 6 making it 34 for lunch.
Even though it was a sunny day of 35deg. only 6 MGs were in attendance: Wes & Chris Bray/MGZS, Trevor & Sandy Dicker/MGA, Derek & Liz Laynes/MGB, Graham & Pat Loader/MGY, Stephen Marlow/MGFTF, Trevor & Helen Praite/MG3. Leigh & Kaye Richter were unable to attend lunch but they still joined us for coffee at Uraidla.
The route from Uraidla went across to the SE Freeway then off and travelled via River Road, Echunga, Meadows, Kangarilla, Clarendon, Happy Valley to Darlington. There was indication that the recent rain had done its job as there were tinges of green in the paddocks.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the route and lunch served by the Flagstaff Hotel, who provided very good service especially the ability for them to serve most meals at the same time. Most are looking forward to the next run which will be on 11th March.
