Then we proceeded to Melbourne to catch up with Darren, Samantha & Grace for a night, also Brad helped him load the van ready to go to Bendigo the next morning. 

Arrived Bendigo Thursday lunch time checked in, unloaded and cleaned the Vette (hadn’t rained at all during the trip to Melbourne cleaned the Vette Wednesday night then it rained on and off to Bendigo).  The rooms at the Schaller Arts Hotel were Arty Farty and rather small but clean and comfortable.

 Thanks to all the organisers from Corvettes of Melbourne & Vic Vettes for hosting a great weekend.
