Meningie on the southern end of Lake Albert near the Coorong in South Australia was the venue for the February muster for our ACC Sundowners branch.
Lake Alexandrina and Albert and the Coorong form part of the mouth of the mighty Murray River where it enters the Southern Ocean. The township is a popular stopover or pass through for grey nomads coming to or coming from the SA Limestone Coast in the South East. The lakes are a photographers delight with magnificent sunsets and views from anywhere around the foreshores. Pelicans and other water birds frequent the Lake's foreshore.
The itinerary for the weekend included a knowledge quiz of Meningie and surrounds that saw members scampering around the town, a fishing competition, and a dinner at the Meningie Hotel. Warren organised a fishing rod prize worth $100 from a Goolwa Tackle shop.
Overall, it was a great start for the year for our Sundowners, with a good roll up. While a small branch compared to some of the larger ones in the club, the members say it’s the friendships they have made that endure beyond their musters.
