Mid Week Run – Beenleigh to Canungra
By Russell Carter.
Today (27/04/2021), saw 11 Lotus and 3 family cars meet at the BP Servo at Yatala for the start of the run that Mal Kelson had organised.
9.30am: Mal conducted the meeting by introducing everyone – one by one – with a short story on their background (a nice touch), then handed out our route directions.
A special welcome to a new member Andrew Olson.
This is a straightforward but exciting dash up Mount Tambourine – that is if you don’t get caught behind the family out for a drive. The usual drive down from the mountain to Canungra had a lot of damage due to the recent heavy rains and was closed to traffic, therefore Mal found us a new route which took us down the eastern side (Henri Robert Drive) towards the Gold Coast. At the intersection of the Beaudesert – Nerang Rd we turned right and soon arrived in Canungra.
The Outpost Cafe was our venue where we all settled in for hot coffee, food and a chat about the day. Everyone enjoyed the run and the company. Thanks again Mal for a job well done. The run home was at your own discretion.
