The First Come and Try Day 1950

Late in 1950. Bob Angus invited club members to come up and inspect his workmanship, and it was decided in December 1950 that the club should come out and give the hill a try. They couldn't have picked a hotter day it was over 40°c and northerly wind blew smoke from a Bushfire nearby. The hill that only recently been graded and they're been a heavy rain earlier that week and the earth was really loose and rutty and some cars found it difficult to maintain speed on the steeper bends while some cars stopped altogether.
