hi folks, TCCQld is having its annual christmas cruise/bbq and it would be great if other toyota-driving-car-dorks (like yourselves) came along!

Info from the Club Magazine...

SUNDAY 11 December

Meet at Motorama 4x4xMore, Beaudesert Rd, Salisbury, Drivers will have a friendly departure time of 9.30am to get up to Somerset Dam for a bbq lunch and swim.

The club drinks trolley will be coming along for the ride. BYO bbq food unless you trust cruise organisers to bring food for you Wink

I'm taking a ute so i can carry heavy stuff for people (well, smallish heavy stuff actually).

Slow drivers (like this ute-driving celica owner) will do something like:
- head directly out to the dam via Ipswich Road
- onto the Warrego Highway (to bypass Ipswich)
- at Blacksoil (just outside Ipswich) take the Esk exit (Brisbane Valley Hwy) and head towards Fernvale
- continuing over Wivenhoe Dam and then on to Esk for a
break in the shade
- continuing north, then turning off the highway to Caboonbah and then onto Somerset Dam.

If there is enough interest, faster drivers might take a shortcut via Mt Nebo or Mt Glorious:
- head towards the gap via Toowong & Ashgrove
- either continue thru The Gap onto Mt Nebo, or skip over to Keperra and Ferny Grove then onto Samford Village before climbing the big hill
- once over the top of the hill, it's a test of your brake pad durability and tyre grip with a long downhill trek ending up
- at the bottom of Brisbane Forest Park and at the back of Wivenhoe Dam
- turn right (north) to head towards Somerset Dam on some fast flat roads-which have the occaisional surprise hard-turn

Once at the dam, all drivers should continue on past the actual dam (which is fenced off these days) going North alongside the dam towards Kilkoy on a fun bit of road with lots of corners) following the dam until reaching a large bbq/boating/swimming area on your right.

BYO UFH radio so we can contact the team (Eric & co).

Make sure you bring a chair and some shade (if you have portable shade) as it will get sunny. Bring a towel and swimming gear as there might be watery fun to be had.

Being holiday time there will be a few tourists on the road?so assume the worst of drivers not on our cruise.

If you are interested in coming along, contact the club president (Stefan: 0410 066 618) so we know to wait for you at or meet up with you on the way.

not sure - last year we had a small turnout but a few 4WD with family/friends made it a reasonable (if small) gathering at Wivenhoe Dam.

Best thing would be to contact Stefan.
