Time: 10am for a 10.30 start

Follow other Renaults for a drive through rural Sydney to the final destination  which has changed!!!

As the weather has not been kind the last few days, we have decided toslightly change the destination for the Saturday drive.

We will now end up at the pub in St Albans instead of Spencer. This will allow us to sit inside and near the fire, should the weather not improve by Saturday.

Note to all: the road to St Albans is now fully sealed, a great drive in any Renault.

See you all on Saturday

It is with a very heavy heart that the decision has been made to cancel Wings Over Illawarra 2015.

The record breaking rain during April has made the airport grounds extremely water logged. We did think that if the rain could ease off during this last week we would be able to relocate most of the exhibits and stalls to higher ground. Last night we received another 25mls of rain. This has meant that the airfield is now totally unusable, unsafe and in no state to be able to have general public access safely.

Thank you all in advance for your understanding
Mark and Kerry Bright
Wings Over Illawarra

Nut Farm, Blue Mountains run

Meet 10.00 at Glenbrook Information Centre parking for a 10.30 start. To get to the parking, turn left Ross Street (just after the information) and then turn left again into Park Street and left into the parking for Glenbrook Park.

Drive to Mount Victoria for BYO lunch either in the Park, buy from one of the Cafes or eat in at the Imperial Hotel.

Drive back via Bells Line of road and drop into Mt Wilson on the way to pick Chestnuts and Walnuts.

There are 4 Farms in Mt Wilson and it seems that all will be open till 4pm to pick Chestnuts and maybe also Walnuts. The cost per kg is $8. We will have more details on the 15th.
