Early Falcon Nationals 2015

 

early 3

I promised He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers a while ago that I would go with him to the Early Falcon Nationals 2015 at Nagambie, in central Victoria. They are held every two years in a different location each time, and he hadn’t been before, so it meant a lot to him.

A few days before the Nationals, I realised the Cake, Bake and Sweets Show was on in Melbourne the same weekend, and I really, really wanted to go. My favourite television bakers were conducting classes, there were going to be stalls where you could buy utensils, ingredients, Thermomix (I’ve heard the world is divided into people who own a Thermomix and people who don’t), and, stalls where you can buy cakes, biscuits, tarts, pies and sweets.

But a promise is a promise. I’ve promised myself that next year I’m going to the Cake, Bake and Sweets Show.

There were about 180 entrants at the Early Falcon Nationals.

The cars on display were from 1960 to 1966, the XK to the XP, mostly Australian models but a few American models.

He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers enjoyed the day and I don’t think he had any idea of how close he came to attending alone.
