What a busy month May has been for the club. We had 2 club runs this month. The first run was to the annual Bumpers by the Bay on Sunday the 5th of May in Williamstown hosted by the Melbourne chapter. As always it was a great event and thoroughly enjoyed by all those who attended.
The second run saw a few club members attend the 43rd Historic Winton on the weekend of the 18th and 19th of May. By all accounts those who attended had an excellent time.
I am also aware that some members attended the MotorEx show at the showgrounds in May, so all and all our club cars have definitely been out and about in the month of May.
Looking forward to the future we have the Presidents run on Sunday 16th of June at the Airways Museum located at Essendon Airport. We envisage leaving the club rooms at 10.00am. There are a number of ways to get to Essendon Fields (where the Essendon Airport is located) and I have provided a map in this newsletter. It should be a good run, it is an indoor event, so any inclement weather should not really pose any threat to the run.
Next month we have our presentation night to be held at the club rooms on the 20th of July, this is usually a good event for the middle of the year. For those who have not been to a club presentation night, I highly recommend it. This will be discussed at tonights meeting. If anyone has any questions about the club presentation night feel free to give me a call or even have a chat to Jim Bishop at tonights meeting.
Some thought needs to given to the inter club challenge that we are hosting this year against our friends (and foes) of the Melbourne Chapter. We have to think of something that will be a great day out for both clubs. This event is planned for September, so if anyone has any ideas please let your committee know.
We have also been invited to a joint run with the Gippsland Historic Automobile Club (Derk other club) for a run in August to the Vietnam Veterans Museum at Phillip Island. For those who attended last year, spoke highly of the venue, so this year should be no different.
As you can see I am not at tonights meeting as I am away for a week. But you are in the capable hands of Jim Bishop. I will see you all at the Presidents run on the 16th of June.
Until next month, stay safe and safe travels.
