On the Saturday 4th July, the Bendigo East Baseball Club Social Club conducted a mystery bus tour around the region west of Bendigo. Approx. 18 members and their friends enjoyed a fabulous day out in the Bridgewater/Inglewood region. First stop was the Connor Park Winery near Bridgewater. Wine tastings were conducted and a quick lesson on the making and fermentation process of wine from the owners was given. From there, we went onto the Lodden River Hotel/Bridgewater Pub for lunch in a sun drenched beer garden. When everyone had filled themselves up on a lovely bar meal (and a few beverages), it was onto the magnificent Melville Caves outside of Inglewood. The views were breathtaking as can be seen from the photos below. A few of our crazy players treated themselves to some rock-climbing, much to the agast of the coaches and parents. And finally, the historic Logan Pub (near St Arnaud). After a long day of driving and drinking, Karoake was the entertainment of choice for some slightly crazy members. A big thankyou to the organisers, Gaye and Glenn (Shorty) for an extremely enjoyable day and to Shorty also for driving the bus all day long.
