What a difference a month can make. Restrictions have been lifted in Victoria (somewhat) and it allowed for about a dozen of us attend the Presidents run to Echuca. Which turned out to be a fantastic weekend away. It was good to see everyone with a smile on their face. There is run report in the newsletter. Although it was the Presidents run, I would like to thank my wife Janine for actually arranging the event and securing a great price for the great accommodation we had.
Due to some restrictions still in place the monthly chat will be held on zoom this month as per other months on Wednesday 2nd December 2020 at 8.00pm Details are in the newsletter. I anticipate that our first meeting back in 2021 in February will be at the club rooms but most likely will be held outdoors. I plan on having a BBQ before the meeting just like we did this year.
Happy Birthday, to be precise Happy 50th Birthday to all current, life and former members of the club. This month marks the 50th Birthday of the club being formed. I believe (unless shown otherwise) that we are the oldest Holden club in Australia and even after all these years to have a member base of over 100 members is a credit to everyone in the club.
For those that can recall we have 50th anniversary coffee mugs for sale. They are priced at $12 each or $60 for six. If you are after some of these mugs please see Rod.
We are going to have a club get together on Sunday the 13th of December at the Cardinia Reservoir. We will be meeting at the club rooms at 10.00am and heading to the reservoir. This is a get together and it is not actually a club xmas party as the club xmas party was cancelled this year. I hope to see as many people as possible on the 13th.
In finishing this report this month, I want to share what was written in the first Editor’s Note of the club Newsletter.
“Having been given the go ahead to publish a monthly issue of THE EARLY NEWS, I will endeavour to make this source of communication both interesting and informative.
To do this successfully, I need every individual member’s help in supplying articles which can be put to press, whether it be humorous or factual.
So come on members, get that mind ticking and give me the article, remember the News Letter can only be as good as you want it to be, so let’s have a GREAT NEWS LETTER.
In this our 50th year the original editor’s note is as important now as it ever was. So please keep continuing to provide articles for our newsletter.
As the festive season draws closer, I would like to wish from my family to yours a very Happy Christmas and a safe and happy 2021. (it can only be better than 2020 surely).
