Yes we\'re home and somewhat sun burnt. Hard to believe we have had so much sun, while its been raining the entire time we have been away in the Sydney & Wollongong areas that also had some local flooding apparently.

My congrats also to the winners of PT Cruisers Wendy of Vic & David of NSW, Steve of SA with his Saratoga and also to our friend Dot of Vic on recieving the first Memorial Trophy to our beloved Henk. I\'m sure the Heuving family will be thrilled to know whom it went to for this year.
A HUGE Thanks to \"the Chief\" - Graham.....yes and Mrs Squaaw of Wagga for their bit in putting a program together in keeping us entertained throughout out the weekend and for booking certain venues for us to enjoy. How good did we look on the joint club run \"The PT Cruise\" and what great country to see with the topped up water ponds everywhere and the fast flowing Murray River.
Talking about winners I have to say 30 PT\'s & other associated members cars were the winners this weekend. We all looked awesome parked in line today with some very proud owners going to alot of work.
We also looked like a great community in the view of the public on how we all sat pretty well together behind all of our cars as one big group.
One thing I picked up was most of the public would walk down the many rows of Chryslers (702 cars i must say) viewing the front of all these wonderful beasts but when they got to us they were also going along the back of our cars with the obvious invite of people having tailgates up with more to offer to look at than the exterior of a car. I was rather surprised this time of the age of some people that took keen interest in our cars and asking many questions not only on the car but about the people behind them! I was actually interviewd on a video recorder by a lovely elderly couple who just loved this \"Modern car\".
Kinross Woolshed was a great venue for the Saturday night and the entertainment which eventually and not surprisingly came from the SA group will probably scar my memory for life with some, lets say rather perculiar antics.
I did mention on another post we had a great cruise down with the QLD PTCDU group & Rob & Lyn and I\'m sure there would be a lot of people talking about us for a while of a great sighting of PT Cuisers going down the Hume Highway.
Gayle and I would like to say we had a wonderful time with all the clubs and their.... lets say \"Leaders of the packs\" and also enjoyed our time we spent with the many wonderful club members of the different clubs.
In all what a wonderful bunch.
Well done to all. :thumbup:

The Chief’s Chryslers on the Murray 2011 Report

A quiet start to COTM 11 this year for us travelling from Wagga alone compared to every other year where we have had company from interstaters. We didn’t arrive at the motel alone though. As pre arranged with Andrew & Jane from Tassie we met them in Albury and escorted them to our campsite for the weekend at the Crystal Fountain motel. On arrival Wild Child & She Devil were there in “She Devil” and from then on it was a trickle of arrivals till all were booked in. Compared to other years the Friday night meet & greet was VERY tame with some toddling off to bed as early as 8.30pm. Someone had to keep the tradition going but they only lasted to around the 11pm mark in preparation for the weekend ahead.
Sat morning we changed our program compared to previous years to go to the Gateway Lakes Grounds first and check out the bargains before we departed at 11.15am for a short cruise out to Howlong to the Wood carving Museum and onto the Howlong Bakery for lunch. The Wood Carving Museum has very interesting articles there and according to verbal reports everyone enjoyed seeing something a little different.
Everyone casually departed at different intervals from Howlong to go back to Albury to clean their respective cars in preparation for the Sunday event and to have a couple of glasses of water before going out on Saturday evening to the Kinross Pub for dinner.
Kinross Pub, WILL never be the same again after we visited.Dinner for 51 thank you and a very nice dinner was enjoyed by all, we witnessed a couple of Hen’s parties and of course we had a little bit of entertainment ourselves. Thanks to the South Australian peeps everyone had a good laugh and from what I can gather from the talk everyone would like to visit that venue again. The 3 Amigos………………..we loved it, pity we couldn’t stay to witness the Security role you took on after we left.
Up early Sunday morning and for once only a couple of minutes late leaving at 7.30am plus but we go a good start and on arrival at the grounds before 8am we were able to go straight in with no hold ups at all. Quickly into line, portashades up and some even got pics of the PT line up before anyone was parked in the row to the east of us. Waiting to get a copy of those pics to put them up.
In total there were 33 PT’s around the ground, some arriving after us and all spots were taken but it is something that we may have to look into in the future to see if we can get the late arrivals in line with us. I’m sure a short talk to the parking attendants wouldn’t go astray.
Congrats to the winners on the day and as I also saw mentioned in another post, the amount of the OLDER generation who came this year with their Valiants, Chargers and older cars really made me take notice. Some of these cars I haven’t seen before so am wondering if that helped to get the numbers up to 702 entrants.
All in all beautiful weather, wonderful company, meeting old faces and putting names to the newer PT owners faces, all I can say is bring on COTM 2012.
Thank you Ray for mentioning in your speech that plans are under way for next year in what could happen for us.
I am happy to say at this point in time if no one else wants to step up to the plate and organise what to do in 2012 then I will say here and now it’s already done. Found a run to do in our travels yesterday and just have to finish off the finer points to make it happen.
Thank you Andrew & Jane ( from Tassie ) for staying the 2 nights with us after COTM, if we hadn’t have taken you to Junee we wouldn’t have found the brochure that gave me the idea.
On mentioning Junee, we met up with more Cruisers who couldn’t make COTM 11 this year and ended up with 5 PT’s together over there yesterday. Sorry no pics, it was raining too much to get my head wet just to take pics. 3 PT\'s from Junee and 2 from Wagga at the workplace of Geoff aka ptx2 before visting the Junee Liquorice factory.

Hope to see most back next year for COTM 12 and hopefully a few more.
Bring it on Cruisers.

Thank you to all my photographic friends. I found this year it is a very unwise move to leave your camera unattended for more than 20 seconds. A majority of the Saturday night pics taken were not my photography work, they were done by MANY photographers………………….lol
Some YOU will not see on this forum, thanks to everyone who helped on the night. But I will be kind enough to put the ones up that I didn’t censor…………..lol

Sat morning line up



Early start saturday at the grounds








Parking and Wood Carvings at the Howlong Woodcarving Museum







Sorry Ray I didn\'t mean for him to kick your PT ;) ;) ;)

Had a couple of pics sent to me today from Gisborne. Graeme took these before any cars were parked on the eastern side of us and shows a very nice line up of Chryslers.
