Christmas Barbeque 2008

You can ask Santa for whatever you want, but not a day free from wind, apparently. True to form, the Nor’Easter blew down the valley from Gebbies Pass and threatened to take the club’s two Ezy-ups on an across-country excursion to Lake Ellesmere. Some patient members spent a lot of their time holding on to the inside frame of our Ezy-ups with one hand and a drink or a sausage with the other.

It was good to see a large turnout, considering the conditions, and a few families were on hand to get a gift from Santa. Dave, Ray and John had organised the food and we enjoyed a spit roast as well as a sausage, salads and drink. A few brave souls even managed to get a few flights in before lunch, especially the helicopters boys who seem to be able to fly in any conditions.

Thanks to everyone for a great day. I wonder whether the significance of the date (Sunday 7th December) had anything to do with proceedings. The significance wasn’t lost on Ray!
