The weekend kicked off on Friday with a run starting at the Queen Street clubrooms and travelling out to explore Wonnerup House, Sharp’s Museum and the Old Butter Factory.

About 180 guests took to the Senior Citizens Centre that night for a dinner dance before the club took off on Saturday morning for the 50th anniversary car rally.
