Trunkey Creek Show
Trunkey Creek is a small farming community about 50 km south of Bathurst New South Wales.
Following an invitation from the Secretary, Millie Watson, of the Trunkey Creek Show Society, requesting a display of our Club vehicles at their Show, several members and their cars made their way to Trunkey for the weekend. On arrival on Friday night we were welcomed by Millie and Peter at the farm with wonderful homemade soup etc awaiting us.
Farm stays were organised for some and others staying with lifelong friends, Millie & Peter at "Arkell". Although it was cold of a night the farm "stayers" had no problem keeping warm as the boys showed their skills of yesteryear, chopping wood and stoking the wood fire, constantly. What a wonderful stopover amongst the beautiful trees.
The Show atmosphere was amazing considering Trunkey Creek has a population of 51, it sure swelled to several thousand on the day. And what a great show it was, the entries in all sections were records. There were sheep dog trials, horse events, sheep and wool judging, photos, flowers, handicrafts, and so much more. There were stalls, bands, singers, Irish dancing displays, the activities continued all day and ended with the Hudsonettes making a guest appearance leading the Irish singing. It was obvious that a lot of hard work goes in from this small community. All funds raised on the day goes to wonderful causes and charities.
The Club cars in attendance were :- Glenn & Dianne in the flaming '65 Rambler Classic, Tony & Wendy in the '69 Rambler Rebel, Colleen and Mick in the '39 Hudson, Carole & Michael in the '64 Rambler Classic and Fred & Jerry in a modern….thingy!
