As we always say, it's the people in the ACC that make it the great Club that it is. We mentioned yesterday we had members travelling to our national muster in Denmark Western Australia via 'the long way round'.
While stopping at our ACC Farm Stay at Howard Springs near Darwin in the Northern Territory, Sunshine Nomads Brian and Linda, and Kim and Trevor, were delighted to be joined by Gold Coast Gadabouts Kathy and Vince.
Since it's the third time they have run into each other in the last few weeks on their journey to the West, we're guessing they enjoy the friendships and adventures that they share. Look out for them on the road too - they would be more than happy to say hello and have a chat. Great to see them displaying the ACC logos!
