On a beautiful and crisp winter’s morning, 28 cars arrived at Schuster Park, Tallebudgera to enjoy chatter and camaraderie among the 50 or so members joining the LSIM Run.
This run was dedicated to long-standing member, Graeme Bumford, who had passed away on 29th May this year. Special guests present on the day were Graeme’s daughter and granddaughter, Anna and Anisha, who have indicated a wish to continue Membership of the club.
President Peter Johnston led the gathering in a Minute’s silence in Graeme’s memory.
Following a briefing by Club Captain, John Talbot and on receiving our run sheets, we started our run around 9:30am as we wound our way out towards the morning tea stop. We traveled via Currumbin Valley and Carool, all the while enjoying the stunning weather and excellent touring roads to Knox Park at South Murwillumbah.
Morning tea was a boisterous affair as we took over the picnic area with lots of chatting and laughter amongst the groups while we enjoyed our hot drinks and snacks. We farewelled Jim and Moya Haines at this point due to a prior commitment.
After morning tea, we continued along from Knox Park through Stokers Siding to Mooball via Burringbar and then wound our way through Pottsville and Hastings Point to our lunch destination at the Cabarita Beach Bowls and Sports Club at Bogangar. Sam and Pam Everitt joined the lunch gathering. All but one arrived safely with Aiden Handyside’s faithful chariot stopping between Mooball and Hastings Point. Help arrived via NRMA and all ended well.
