Santa Arrives at Lane Cove – in A Renault

Last Sunday we all had a wonderful Christmas get together at the Lane Cove National Park.  It was a good club attendance with all having a great time , adults and kids alike.

The feature event was Santa Claus arriving in a tricked up Megane RS 230. ( Which looked a lot like Ted’s car)

Santa looks like he has lost some weight just like the Polar Bears have in his native North Pole.

Lunch was a delicious affair with some lovely NZ ice cream to top off the fine feast.

A great BIG THANKYOU to those who went to a lot of trouble organizing such a great day!!

Joyeux Noel to all club Members and Friends
