April 2019

Hi all,

After one of Vic­to­ri­a’s hottest sum­mers, I write this pres­i­dents report, on the evening of our com­bined garage sale with the Monash Mens shed, where the weath­er strug­gled to move into dou­ble dig­its and it rained most of the day.

At the garage sale with the Mens shed it was a great suc­cess, apart from the weath­er, we man­aged to make a prof­it, which is always a good thing, and the mem­bers who attend­ed, appeared to have a good time. I think Aldo enjoyed him­self as his ute was full with pur­chas­es he made (at a good price).

I have been in con­tact with Pap­py from the Mel­bourne Chap­ter, for those who don’t know Pap­py (Im sure every­one does) Pap­py is the Pres­i­dent of the Mel­bourne Chap­ter and has remind­ed our club of Bumpers by the Bay to be held on Sun­day May 5th in Williamstown. This is always a good event held by our friends at the Mel­bourne Chap­ter. The event this year takes on even more mean­ing with the sup­port­ing char­i­ty of the Heart Foun­da­tion in mem­o­ry of the late Joe Brouns. Joe unfor­tu­nate­ly passed ear­ly last year and you would find it hard­er to find such a gen­uine and respect­ed man.

The Mel­bourne Chap­ter is also host­ing this years State Titles being held at the RACV Gold­fields Resort in Creswick (Bal­larat) on the week­end of 19th and 20th of Octo­ber. It is rec­om­mend­ed that mem­bers book soon to avoid miss­ing out on any acco­mo­da­tion. I have been advised that if you are an RACV mem­ber you will receive a dis­count based on your mem­ber­ship status.

This months run will be held on Sun­day 14th April (a week ear­li­er due to east­er), more details will be dis­cussed at the meet­ing. The run for the month of May will be the Pres­i­dents run on May 19th to the Essendon Air­port avi­a­tion muse­um. The June run will be a bowl­ing run to For­est Hill Bowl­ing Alley.

That’s about it for me for this month.

Until next month, stay safe and safe travels.
