Hi everyone last cruise was a great success, everyone enjoyed the bowling and meal after :)
We hope you can join us again next month for our cruise.

Just a heads up for October we will be going to Caribbean Gardens market to support the Victorian Chrysler Restorers club, “Chryslers Display Day October 21st” more info to come on this later ;)


Sunday 16th September Cruise to Emerald Lake and BBQ/ Picnic Lunch

Our September cruise is to Emerald Lake.
For those on the west, south, and north side of Melbourne we will meet at our usual spot at the Todd rd Service station on the west side of the freeway at 10am for a 10.15am departure. Last time we were at Todd rd car park some noticed some strange things happening amongst the locals and some of us didn’t feel comfortable being there
We will drive in convoy (about 40min) out to the Stamford hotel car park in Rowville via the Monash freeway and meet with others on the east side. Once we meet up we will drive in convoy to emerald lake for our BBQ /Picnic lunch.

There is a lot to see and do so it will be good to have some free time to have a look around, or just hire a paddle boat if they are available.
To help us keep together we will have a couple of UHF radios, and if you have one its always good to carry one on the cruises to help keep us together while we drive.


Emerald Lake


The lake is a lovely, tranquil spot ideal for picnics and walks. Attractions include the largest model railway display in the Southern Hemisphere, paddleboats, cafe and tearooms, fishing, free wading pool (summer months) and a variety of walking trails. Picnic shelters are available for hire throughout the year. Puffing Billy stops at Emerald Lake and many passengers spend a day here before returning on the train in the late

Guys, UHF 40 is only good for the initial contact but we need to ensure that we use a different channel as the main users of that channel get pretty pissed if there is general chit chat on that freq. Suggest Ch 18 once all together and on the way, then it does not matter what we say, almost.

Still waiting to see what No1 daughter is doing over that weekend, might be in Sydney as she needs to move out of the Blue Mountains to a pad in Sydney somewhere. So expect to have to travel up on Saturday for a couple of days.

Very good point there Mark. Folks like us should really only listen to UHF 40 for info, and use other channels (such as 18) for chit-chat!
