Older drivers reunion at Goodna

G'day Big Rigs. We have a forthcoming reunion that we are organizing for the older generation of drivers from the 50s/60s/70s era.

These blokes were directly responsible for the transporting of the majority of freight in South East Queensland and country areas before the introduction of containers.

Back then, there were dozens of small transport and crane companies in Brisbane.

Names such as J.N.Nicholson (Nichos), Finney Bryce, Cavanagh, Athol Flynn, Western Transport, Brambles, Banks, Lukes, Jacksons, Cobb & Co. Aitkins, the list goes on.

Most of these companies have disappeared into the mists of time, but they are not forgotten by us.

A lot of us are well advanced in age, but we still remember the good times and the comradeship and our mates and we still love to tell a story.

Which is why on Saturday August 22 at the Goodna RSL Club about 10am. we shall hopefully meet blokes that we haven't seen in years.

We shall have a few drinks, tell a few lies, exaggerate a few stories and drive a million miles again.

This invitation is extended to everybody who was or still is involved in the transport game, but most notably from that earlier era.

Make an effort you old bas***ds and get out of the arm chairs for one day and relive some of the memories.

Regards Gary Harris and John Smith.
