Australia Day Golf at Wardell Recreational Grounds

Just back from golf at the Wardell Sporting Recreational and Golf Club.A great morning starting with an 8$ big breakfast and finishing with a few beers.
A great little club with a 9 hole course set up "around" the existing sporting fields so footy goal posts can become a man made hazard but then again a "friendly bounce" off the concrete cricket pitch balances this out. Photos added to the "golf" album as usual .

North Coast Street Machines 2010 Ballina

Spent a few hours this morning in Ballina at the 2010 North Coast Street Machines Show and Shine car show . Not really a Hot Rod show as motor vehicles covered all facets and had a lot of fun with my cameras. Haven't been to a show like this since Bankstown Square in Sydney about 30 years ago . I will add captions to some of the photos later , but a lot of memory joggers for ANY baby boomers. Triple SUs , panel vans , pommie blowers on little cars , no not turbos !!!!! big block big buck stuff and the right background music from the DJ .

Stuff the doofs doofs and turboed Jap stuff ...... OOPs , showing my age pops !

As usual photos can be viewed and copied (by clicking on the link below) on PhotoBucket and make sure to enlarge them BEFORE you copy . Yes dear !

Just back from Evans Head Aerodrome watching part of the Fly In. This year is the 70 th anniversary since its usage in WW2. Seemed a very well organised event with additional stands ,vintage cars , rides on assorted planes and ultralights etc .

Ill stick to fighting off B doubles on the Pacific Highway on my bike . Got motion sickness trying to keep up with the aerobatics plane with my camera while standing on the ground !!!.

I have put the photos on Photobucket so anyone can copy them if they wish . Click on the "Photos Here" link below.
