Annual Meet and Greet Cotter BBQ
Sunday 15th February 2015

Hi again folks

Glad the Sun decided to shine today given it rained like crazy yesterday. This played nicely into our hands for the annual meet and greet Cotter BBQ.

As per usual we met up at the trusty old Coleman Court car park adjacent to Woolies. We were all to meet at 10.30am for a 11.00am departure. And this too went all according to plan so the day was off to a great start.

We decided we would mix the run up out to the Cotter with some taking the more scenic run out through Uriarra Crossing, and some the conventional way down Cotter Rd. I took the more scenic route as I love to stretch the legs of the green machine when I get a chance. Anyway, we arrived shortly after the the Cotter Rd brigade and parked up. The trailer was already in place and as per usual, the girls were organising the trestle tables and nibblies.

Peter S decided he would take charge of the BBQ today with the assistance of others. While lunch was cooking, the kids entertained themselves as the adults mingled amongst themselves. We were actually greated with a couple of new faces today so we got to find out what they were all about. Good to see them bring their families along too. I hope they enjoyed our company as we enjoyed theirs. Would be nice to see them all back again too.

With lunch ready, we chowed down on some good tucker again and then sat back to relax for the afternoon. Although the skies looked a little threatening, Mother Nature behaved herself and we didn't see the afternoon thunderstorms that were forecast. So no extra cleaning duties were required when we all got home.

All in all it was another pleasant afternoon with about 12 Torana's making the meet and greet. This particular run is always one of my favourites and is always a great day. Thanks to all that made the effort to come and join in.

Fingers crossed the fellow that came off his motorcycle on our way down to the Cotter didn't sustain too serious injuries. I know that coming back up through the hills on the way home the Police still had the road partially blocked assessing the accident scene.

Catch you all next run.

Cheers, Gerry
