The run on Sunday 18th May to Links Lady Bay Normanville saw 22 people enjoy a run through the hills to Meadows where we stopped for morning coffee before heading off again through Ashbourne,  Mt Compass, Carrackalinga, Normanville and ending up at the hotel at Lady Bay overlooking the golf course and out to sea.  The weather was fine and sunny and the countryside looks great now we have had some very welcome rain.

A minor hiccup with the menu was overcome and I am sure everyone would agree it was an excellent value for money 3 course lunch.   Thanks to Geoff & Barb Cugley for their organisation.

The mid week run in April was a very interesting and informative visit to the Paris Creek BioDynamic Farm.   Considering the wet and windy weather on the day, 24 people attended and were treated to tastings of the bio dynamically produced yoghurt and flavoured milk along with a selection of soft and hard cheeses.   This was followed by a very good value for money lunch at Auchendorroch House in Mt Barker.   Thanks to Peggy and Brian Argent for their efforts in organising this run.

The breakfast run on Sunday 20th April was well attended considering the early start.  The weather was perfect for a run down to the Southern Vales ending up in Willunga for a BYO breakfast.   Thanks to Lyle and Sue Taylor for putting this run together.

Don’t forget the run to Links Lady Bay on 18th May.   If you are intending to come along please register with Geoff & Barb Cugley as the hotel requires numbers for lunch.  Registration form is in the magazine.

There are still a few cabins available for the Riverland weekender on June 21st/22nd.   Please let Margie or Bill know if you are going to join us for, what I am sure will be, a fun weekend.   The package is very good value for money with all meals, accommodation, visit to the Loxton Historical Village and a River Cruise out of Renmark on the Sunday morning.  Cost is $200/couple.
