I hope everyone is going ok and not going stir crazy in isolation. I have spoken to many club members over the last month via telephone and the general vibe I get is everybody is doing well in these trying times.
I also see some people are spending time in the shed and ticking off the items on their projects. I know that Kim Radenic has now got his ute registered and is biting at the bit to get it to a club run to show all. Just like Kim is keen to show his ute, we are also very keen to see it.
Speaking of utes, for those that don’t know, my forum located at www.fxfjholden.com/forums has a club member, Tim Fettell. He has been putting up progress reports of the restoration of his ute and it’s almost complete. It is a credit to him and the people who have helped him build the ute. When isolation is finally finished, I presume it won’t be long until we see Tim’s car on the road.
Isolation must do crazy things as our former President and life member Derk has even spent some time in the shed building his FJ Panelvan, so although isolation has been a worrying time for many it has had its benefits in the club scene.
When will we be back, that really depends on the government and when restrictions are lifted or varied. Currently all club activities are cancelled until 1st of June, but that date is subject to change and maybe extended. All club members will be notified of any changes to our date of return etc.
I have updated the club website so why not go and have a look at www.emhc.com.au and in this newsletter I have added some more reading material of some club cars of years gone by.
It appears at the time of writing the run to Echuca will be rescheduled, but when we return I am sure we will have plenty of runs and perhaps for a few months of 2 runs a month to get out of the house and enjoy our cars and club members hospitality and friendship.
Please stay safe and look after each other.
