This year we headed to Axedale near Lake Eppalock to stay at Camp Getaway for the weekend to enjoy the delights of Central Victoria. Fourteen dads aged from 35ish to 91 took up the option of a weekend including a bit of quad bike riding, a hit of golf, watching the footy, a movie or two, bit of chatter, a pub meal and climbing mountains. So what were the great things?

• Quad bike ride through the Wombat state forest with mud brought out the inner bogan in us all
• John Cameron at 91 (an uncle of one of the dads) experienced his first ever quad bike ride – or motorbike ride for that matter
• Sunday breakfast – cooked by the dads under chef Tony’s tutelage
• Dads making connections, chatting and enjoying time away together
• Carlton lost again – sorry Frank
• Picnic at Hanging Rock where no one went missing but some nearly had a coronary from the climb up the rock
• Finally got some lettuce
• Visit to the spillway at Lake Eppalock… Well Mark enjoyed it anyway

Thanks to all who came along and made the weekend a success. Til next year …
