October 2018

Hi all,

I am currently writing this on the Radiance of the Seas cruise ship, which is part of the Royal Caribbean Cruise liners. I am writing this pondering and looking out my window and see nothing but the blue North Pacific Ocean, on my return to Sydney from Hawaii.

I have been away since just after the last meeting and return just after this meeting and will be at the committee meeting next week. So unfortunately, I have not been on any club runs or activities this month.

Reading the run report for the Vietnam Vets Display down in Phillip Island, it looked like a great event, with a good number of cars attending. I would like to thank Aldo on behalf of the committee for his hospitality on the day. There are a few pics in the magazine and the run report by Jim.

I know a few of our members have taken their earlies down to Tasmania this month for what is quickly becoming a national event bigger then Bathurst. There might even be a little write up in future editions of the newsletter. Shhhhh.

Bumpers by the Bay was held on the 23rd of September, once again an excellent event hosted by the Melbourne Chapter, Well Done Pappy and Cammo for all the work you do for raising money for cancer. I hear Neville Mawer won a prize – see Jims run report for details.

As you all are aware we have a Nationals coming up in South Australia in just over 2 months. However we also have the state titles this month at Cranbourne on the 27th and 28th of October, with the show and shine being at the Cranbourne racecourse on the 28th. If you have never been to a state titles, I would recommend attending this event. If you have you know what I am talking about, and a good day is usually had by all.

As you will see, you will be in the trusted hands of Jim Bishop tonight chairing the meeting, thanks Jim.

Stay safe and safe travels.
