COROWA 2019 - BLIGHTY TRIP WEDNESDAY 13 MAR 19
« on: February 08, 2019, 08:15:47 PM »
Hi All,

For those heading to Corowa this year the Blighty overnight stay is happening. I visited the pub a couple of weeks ago and there is a new licensee, the place has been cleaned up, and most importantly the motor for the beer system has been repaired. The food and service has improved significantly.

The trip will tie in with the Dookie trip scheduled on Wednesday, we`ll cut away from the Dookie Convoy after lunch and head to Blighty via Shepparton and Tocumwal.  Those of you interested in the Berrigan Trip the following day could meet the group at Berrigan without much effort and the others can push through back to Corowa.

This year at Blighty there will be a presentation of a photo of the inaugural visit in 2018 and we`ll run a new Aussie Flag up the flag pole at the Rural Fire Service shed - following on from Car zee's effort in 2018.

Those interested could you let me know so I can warn out the publican?

Cheers,

Mick

Count me in Mick,

Good to see that this is a goer in 2019, I was wondering what we would do to replace it!  :D

Last year's lamb cutlets are still very fresh in the memory. I'm up for it. I will bring the Gaviscon and avoid the cutlets.

Thanks Mick, looking good for 2019. To say the obvious, 2018 with Lovedale oval etc will take a helluva lot to top, but we are looking forward to this year a lot. Cheers.

Can you put up with a new comer to Corowa? If you can I would like to give Blighty a bash. This is providing I get a few bits of maintenance done in the next couple of weeks.
