    On the other hand 2011 was a total write off and was washed out entirely.

    Was soo much fun getting off the oval with a couple of inches of rain sitting on it.

    I just made it out in my 71. Mel had the syncro so no problem for her but a few needed towing off.

    Our tent had a river running through it. Bought a different tent after that and it hardly rained since....

    As a complement to today's wet and stormy weather. In 2012 the sun came out!

    And here we have the inaugural Old Lorn Beach Festival in lieu of Old Bar , kicking off to day with an overwhelming response from the double vaccinated inhabitants of the Maitland LGA.

    2015 rolled around but I have no idea. My nephew decided to get married in Berrima that weekend. No respect! They did hire a kombi for a photo shoot though.
