Just as we as a committee, start to make plans to start having meetings again, we in Melbourne are hit again with this dreaded COVID-19 virus and the state government has imposed further restrictions, which meant we could not hold a meeting or club run in July.
Oh well we will again one day soon, I promise.
I would like to mention the sad news in my Presidents Report of the fatal car accident of Guildford engineer Peter Turner and a Wodonga man Jamie Drummond who died when Jamie’s FJ sedan was hit from behind whilst waiting to make a right hand turn into Wangaratta Airport on Saturday 13th of June at 9.50am. Peter and Jamie were both in Jamie’s FJ sedan doing some testing for the engineering of his vehicle.
Some of our club members have used the services of Peter’s engineering business for the engineering of their vehicles, I myself was in the middle of engineering my FJ van with Peter and was due to see him in 2 weeks’ time.
I attended a memorial for Peter in the small town of Guildford (just out of Castlemaine) on the 24th of June and club members Rick Kingsley and Presley Easdale from Bendigo also attended. Below this report is a pic of Ricks FJ at the memorial in Guildford.
All I ask is for club members to hang in there, the tide will eventually turn in fighting this virus. I know this has been a difficult time for many, but we are getting through it and it will only make us enjoy our club activities even more on our return.
Please stay safe and look after each other.
