Windang Adventure

On Friday 18th September 52 bowlers set off from Tacoma for our weekend down South. This year we had several newcomers on our trip. It was an overcast day, however no rain. First stop Campbelltown for morning tea and comfort stop. Then onward to Bowral. The tulips were out and many took advantage of going into the gardens whilst most enjoyed the view from outside the fence, and seeing just as much.

Leaving Bowral we headed toward our motel at Oak Flats travelling down through Macquarie Pass which has quite a few curves. All was going well, got through couple tricky ones, then Craig radioed ahead to say we were coming down, however a truck and semi decided they were not going to wait for us to get around a very tight bend and after they manoeuvred their way around us, we were unable to get around and came to a grinding halt. After a few tries at reversing it was obvious we were going nowhere    More Details Here
