October President's Report

  

President on ramp

 

 

Another month of outings and events for our members to enjoy. The August run to Trafalgar was a great success and most of us are still trying to shake off those extra kilograms gained by eating two huge scones with jam and cream at the Lavender Farm.

 

By the time you read this report we will have been to Marysville for the September run. The social team keep coming up with some terrific runs for us to enjoy. I know some ideas are given to them by members and that is a great help. 

 

The Tri Club Run is organised each year by the President of the Austin Healey Owners Club, the Austin Healey Sprite Drivers Club or our club. It has become an annual event to enjoy a run in our cars and share lunch with members from the three clubs. I hope to see you there. Sunday 29 October is the date and details are in this CAT-A-LOG. Numbers are limited so book in now.

 

I managed to escape the Melbourne’s cold start to Spring by visiting my Dad in Port Stephens for his 95th birthday.  Lunch at The Anchorage, his favourite restaurant, with his three daughters certainly put a smile on his face.  He is doing very well.

 

As a member of the club I have met a lot of people and made some very close friends.  There are always some people you meet that have a certain sparkle.  Beverley Middleditch was one such member. With Neil she looked after our merchandise for over 12 years.  Sadly she passed away at the end of August. Her funeral was attended by several of our members. Our sincere condolences are extended to Neil and his family.  

 

Most of you know we have two tenants in our front offices now. The Association of Motoring Clubs needed an entrance at the eastern end. We now have a very impressive ramp and front entrance for them.  Kevin Brown, one of our members, has done an amazing job – obviously “a craftsman not just a tradesman”. Whilst he is still sane, his patience and negotiating skills have been surely tested.  Inspections and Permits have taken over a year. Volunteers are hard to come by and he is one of the best.

 

I hope to see you at the Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 3 October.
