That's A Wrap

(Written my Matt F - President)

 
A big thank you to all that attended Nationals 2022 and made the event a resounding success! After a turbulent 2 years the weekend just gone seemed like the event everyone was after. I'm pleased to say I'm still smiling, about the memories made, the conversations had and the cars that were all looking their best from arrival to departure. It was fantastic to catch up with those whom I haven't seen since Canberra and even greater to see all the new faces who were attending their nationals for the very first time. We were blessed with fantastic weather for the event despite an otherwise chilly and windy Hunter Valley (or a Melbourne Summer as Kevin put it). We had a total of 37 cars show up for the event with some participating in all the weekends events and others only some, the show and shine saw some of the best examples of the MR2 and made it incredibly difficult to pick between them all. As mentioned during the ceremony, the real trophy is the smile the car gives you when you turn the key, when pedestrians smile or when other motorists give you a wave for brightening their day with something other than the everyday SUV we're seeing on the roads.
 
The dinner was again a great example to catch up and enjoy each other's company while some won some prizes and reflect on the MR2 family that grows every year. Go-Karting was something a little different and was great fun all round. I sincerely enjoyed the advantage of being at my home track and having a slight weight advantage to secure the win. Although I didn't make it for the Putty Rd drive, I'm told it was a great day for it and I've never known that road to disappoint so I hope everyone shared my enjoyment of the weekend and is equally looking forward to heading to Victoria in 2024!
 
Although you're no doubt tired of me sharing my thanks I once again want to thank the NSW Club and its Committee for their joint efforts in delivering a fantastic weekend. It's been an honor and a pleasure to put the event on for everyone and we're looking forward to the future. For our financial members, we will be in touch over the next few months as we work on the merger with Toymods incorporated but will remain as present as ever on the Facebook platform after the merge.

The above was written by Matt, so I'll add my little bit as well.
 
It was a great few days catching up with everyone.  New friends & those I've seen every couple of years since I purchased my baby.
 
We couldn't have asked for better weather.  A little chilly in the mornings, but that is better than sweltering in the heat.  Cooler weather is also better for the cars on the longer drives.
 
The Molly Morgan was a great place to stay.  If you have tried this Motel before with not so good experience, give it another chance.  Whilst some of the rooms are a little dated, they were clean, warm & comfortable & are being updated.  Sarah & Andrew have only been in charge since early 2022 & are great hosts.  Plenty of Cafe's & Restaurants within walking distance.  It's a great central spot to stay, with the Hunter Valley, Port Stephens, Lake Macquarie & Newcastle all within an hours drive, of course you can make it longer, by taking more scenic routes.  The start of Putty Road & even Woo. tton Way, Bulahdelah are an easy drive.
 
The cars all looked great sitting at Hope Estate.  The blind Wine Tasting is a fun way to taste without pre-conceived thoughts of how it should taste.
 
The plan for my baby is to have her re-sprayed soon.  It's our 10 year anniversary in September, so I think it's only fitting that I give her a refresh.  She may give some other "Original" SDUB's a run for their money in 2024
