Caravan & Cabin

The Caravan & Cabin Group is organised by a small committee and there are usually 2 trips a year – one in February/March and one in October/November. 

Caravan & Cabin trips are a fantastic way to meet others in the club and we always have a lot of fun.

Rutherglen Caravan and Cabin Report – 19th to 22nd April 2024

Another great Caravan and Cabin weekend in Rutherglen was enjoyed by 25 members of our Club. Weather was excellent, the Wine even better, coupled with our various activities made the whole experience one to remember.

The activities included walks around Town followed by coffee, Ned Kelly tour in Beechworth for those that wished to venture not too far.

Dinner Saturday night was at the Poachers Hotel a short walk from the park followed by a game of Hard Quiz with the eventual winner being Noel Abley who has the honour of having his name engraved on the inaugural cup. The Theme for the night was: Going Back in Time. One couple in particular went all out to impress. Roger Bayley came as Popeye on Steroids and Maureen as Olive the Chambermaid.   Very Funny

Sunday commenced with game of Barefoot Bowls at the local Bowling Club and Sunday afternoon was spent at Pfeiffer’s Winery where we were able to enjoy a glass of wine and shared a tasting plate on the bridge overlooking the river where we able to spot many fish and turtles.

Each day was concluded with Happy Hour around a camp fire in the park and on many   occasions, it was back to the camp fire after dinner.

These getaways are great way for our new members to meet other club members in an informal setting and get to know each other. It was great to have three members Jan Porter, Thelma Webster and Penny Chan come for the first time and all three seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves

New members please think about coming to Traralgon and joining the activities as I mentioned before it is a great way to get to know other members which in turn makes you feel more involved in the club
