Richard Stevenson donates picture to JCCV4 

Presidents report for November Catalog 2018

Our monthly meeting on 2 October incorporated the Annual General Meeting. It was great to see a few longstanding members who are not regular attendees. The usual business of the AGM went very smoothly and of course the year would not be complete without recognition of member contribution.

Among the recipients were Robyn and Neville Lockstone who were awarded Life Membership as a couple. They are both full members in their own right but a large part of their contribution was done together. They joined the club in 1988 and have been very active as President, Vice President, Secretary, E-Type Register Secretaries and currently Club Permit Officers to name a few. They are very worthy recipients and I congratulate both of them.

Richard Stevenson spoke briefly about his 10 year involvement as a volunteer with Fox Classic Car Museum. Unfortunately all volunteers have been told they will not be needed because the museum will close its doors for some time due to building works next door. He urged members to visit now before it closed. Richard generously donated a framed picture of a Mark V to the club. It has been signed by Lofty England.

Our social team deserves to be thanked for the work they put in to organize the Gala event of the year scheduled for 20 October. Unfortunately due to lack of support it had to be cancelled. It is a great pity as it was going to be one out of the box.

On Sunday 18 November at Wesley College in Glen Waverley we will have about 300 Jaguars displayed on the oval at our premier event of the year. Come along to our Concours and Display day, bring a picnic to share with the family or support the food vendors if you prefer.

I wish the best of luck to the members entering their Jaguars in either d’Etat or d’Elegance Class. Cleanliness plays a big part in your results so remember to clean the car and when you have finished clean it again. Individual results will be announced on the day but Perpetual Awards and trophies will be presented at the February 2019 monthly meeting dinner. You will need to book for the dinner.

We are collecting toys and books again this year to donate to The Smith Family. Please bring your donation along to the November or December meeting.
