Welcome to the February newsletter and the first for 2022.
Like other years, I have started the year off, with having a BBQ before the start of our February meeting starting at 6.30pm. I hope as many can attend the BBQ before the meeting and catch up with other members, whom some we haven’t spoken to in 2 years since the pandemic began.
2022 looks to be a big year, with our club hosting the State Titles in October and the Nationals completing the year off in Cooma just after Christmas. If you haven’t already entered for both events, please do as soon as possible not to miss out on the goodie bag etc.
This month’s run is to Terang with a night’s accommodation in Terang, visiting the old Holden dealer and having photos taken at that location. This is a run organised by the Melbourne Chapter and details were emailed to members during the Christmas break. I did mention in my December report, that once I knew the finer details about the run, I would email members. I am unsure if there are any rooms available if any member still wishes to attend, but please see me at the meeting for further details.
Just a few days ago we had our Australia Day run. At the eleventh hour the original destination of Highton was changed and cancelled. I then with Janine made an alternative location for the run to Queens Park in Moonee Ponds and then lunch back at Janine and my place. For all those attended had a good day considering how warm it was. I apologise to those members that were inconvenienced by the cancellation to Highton.
It is anticipated at this stage that the run for March will be to the Kilmore Gaol. I have heard from others that this is a great spot for a run. It is anticipated that we will have lunch in a pub nearby after a visit to the Gaol. But more information will be available in the March newsletter.
As you can see by the newsletter cover, we have gone back to our more traditional cover. This is the cover that many of us remember. Now that the 50th anniversary celebrations have concluded we are going back to a more traditional and non-celebratory cover. Just on the 50th merchandise, we still have some coffee cups and bottles of wine for sale. If you are interested in purchasing these please see Rod or Bruce.
It’s good to be back let’s hope 2022 is better than 2020 and 2021.
If you are on the road, please drive safe.
