It has been a very busy month this month. I know that I said last month that the weather is starting to get better this time of year and it is a great time to be driving your early, but we have to remember we live in Melbourne and we can definitely get 4 seasons in 48 hours. We have had warm weather then the next day its been cold. The reason I mention this is that this month we attended the 42nd State Titles held by the Melbourne Chapter at the RACV Goldfields Resort in Creswick. It was such a great weekend, but boy was it cold up there. The amount of dew that was on the cars early on the Sunday morning was freezing.
Just on the state titles, there is a detailed report in this newsletter from Jim and heaps of photographs of some of the cars and the trophy winners. I would like to thank the Melbourne Chapter for the wonderful state titles. Congratulations to all those that received awards and I thank all that attended and made it an enjoyable event.
Ok its no secret that we are hosting the 43rd State Titles. A decision was made at the last State Titles Committee meeting and was announced to the audience at the Creswick state titles. Next years state titles will be held on the weekend of the 24th and 25th of October, 2020 at the Yarra Valley Lodge and Heritage Golf and Country Club in Chirnside Park. It will be the normal state titles with the dinner function on the Saturday night and the show and shine on the Sunday. More will be discussed at our November club meeting.
We have received new members from the Bendigo club and I welcome them to the club. I hope your time with our club is long and you have an enjoyable time being a member of the EMHC.
As this newsletter is a bigger newsletter than other months, I have decided the report and pictures I was going to write about myself driving Hermann’s FJ in Germany will be included in the December edition of the club newsletter.
We have just been asked and accepted to have a Bunnings BBQ fundraiser on Saturday 14th December at the Bunnings in Vermont. This is on the Burwood Highway and is a bigger Bunnings that we have had our BBQ’s on in recent times at Notting Hill. For those members who are available to come down for an hour or two on this day, would help a lot as it would make sharing the load of this day easier on all. If you are available please advise one of the committee members.
Dont forget our club run for this month is to Richard Fox’s factory in Bayswater on November 17th and the club will be providing lunch. There are more details in this newsletter. Our Club Christmas party will again be held at the club rooms this year on Sunday December 8th and more will be discussed at the general meeting.
Anyway, that’s about it for me for this month.
Until next month, stay safe and safe travels.
