   Christmas in July - Weekend of 30 & 31 July 2016
   Novotel Twin Waters Resort - Sunshine Coast



Well, Ho Ho Ho, it started with a fantastic morning all meeting at Maccas Loganholme.  We all headed down the highway to collect our North side members.  It was great to see the beautiful line of Corvettes in procession.

When we got to Nudgee the traffic stopped but my Vette didnít, the pedal went to the floor nearly running into the Vette in front of me, a very scary experience.  I limped it to the B.P servo on the highway, our meeting point, after much debate we decided to throw it on the tow truck and send it home.  Phil and Karen threw our stuff into their ute and we piled into the back of Ken and Paulineís car.  Big thanks to everybody that helped us on our way.

After arriving at the Landsborough pub for a beautiful lunch and much needed drink stop we headed to the Novotel Twin Waters Resort.  What a beautiful place  and very well organised.  We check in and found our rooms.

We then met up on the lawns and had a few beverages and nibbles.  After winding down from the drive we got ready for our night.  We headed to our private function room and the party that hadnít stopped since morning kicked up a notch.  It was great to see everybody went to the effort of dressing up.  After a great meal and some prizes given out Santa arrived and gave out the presents.  We then ventured back to our rooms, Some came back for a night cap.

In the morning we enjoyed a beautiful buffet breakfast.  After checking out some of us decided to venture down the coast way and have a stop for lunch.  The rest headed to their destinations.  Lee and Lixia decided to take on a bus and slid sideways into the curb damaging their car severely, they had to be towed home.  Thank god they came out of it a little shaken but unscathed.

A Big thanks to Elaine and Craig for organising another memorable weekend away, and all the members who participated.
