Cup Day walk from Taminick Gap to Morrison’s Winery

On Tuesday, the 7th of November, 14 walkers headed off up the ridge from Taminick Gap in warm but pleasant conditions.

Most enjoyed a small glass of a classic white on the summit of Mount Glenrowan before plunging down the fairly steep and trackless south ridge (with some new orange markers provided to help with navigation) towards the winery.

By the time we arrived at Bob’s delightful place we had ambled about eight kilometres in total, with the last three kilometres being rather rugged!!

About 12 non-walking Club members joined the walkers at Morrison’s where we had lunch and socialised before preparing ourselves for the big race!!

Bob “sort of” volunteered to judge the gorgeous hat competition just before 3pm, with five mares and one stallion lining up.

Some hats were bedecked in the superb local flowers, but the prize went to Pat’s simple but exquisite red mini bonnet!

The names of horses were tooth picked to charmingly decorated cup cakes, and the race was listened to intently.

Amazingly, Anne Ford won the coveted Warby Cup for the second time in two years!!

Thanks goes to Bob Morrison for his great “horsepitality” (again!) and the organisers of the cakes and the sweep!!
