Humber Car Club Run to the Federation Picnic at Marong - 2011

John and I decided to give our 14/40 Humber a run to the Marong picnic this year. The car can be a bit of a handful so we set off on Saturday to make it a weekend away. Something we have not done for a very long time.

The Humber ran beautifully all the way taking just around 3 hours to get to Castlemaine. We spent a very enjoyable evening with Ray and Lotte Linden. It was great to catch up with them again.

Sunshine greeted us Sunday morning, a lovely day for a drive. We set off to meet other club members at Lockwood before heading together to Marong. While waiting at Lockwood we were treated to a display of a steady stream of classic and vintage cars heading north. I think the Morris Minors must have had wings under their bonnets as they fairly zipped along!
In all five Humber cars drove in convoy to the Marong picnic ground. There were hundreds of cars there and still more coming in. John and I had a good look at most of the cars - not many vintage ones though but there were a few veterans that took our eye. I think the numbers attending must have taken the caterers by surprise because the pie van was sold out by 12.15 pm. However, the burgers and sausages went down well and although they ran out of tea!! The coffee was good and hot. Next time though I must take our own picnic lunch, I missed my cup of tea.

Managed to catch up with a number of HCCV members on the day, both country and metropolitan members. Hats off to Margaret and Keith who, determined to come despite setbacks, made it in time for the raffle draw. Unfortunately, despite buying raffle tickets, we didn't win anything but never mind it was a great day out and our car did not put a foot (wheel?) wrong.
