Welcome to the July newsletter.
What a great run we have just had to Maryborough. I have written a run report which is included in this newsletter. It was a large turnout of members and cars, which goes to show that members enjoy a weekend away at least once a year as a club run.
It is with a heavy heart that I inform members if they don’t already know that club member and all-round good bloke Anthony Mirabito passed away on Tuesday 14th June 2022. Anthony’s funeral was held last week on the 30th of June and a great many members of the club turned up for his funeral. Our hearts go out to Stephanie his daughter and the rest of his family.
Well, its back. The Rare Spares rubber kit will be auctioned at this month’s presentation night to be held at the Knox Club on Saturday the 16th of July starting at 6.30pm. Now that we have card facilities there is no excuse, you can use your plastic to buy the rubber kit.
As this month it is our presentation night there is no club run as the presentation night replaces the club run for the month. The next run in August will be to the club rooms in preparation for State Titles and checking of members cars in readiness for the state titles.
As I mentioned at the last meeting, this is my last year as President as I will not be renominating at the August AGM, as I have accepted a job outside Melbourne. I think I leave as Club President the club in good hands. There are many capable people who can perform this role and I know the club will give their support to the new committee and President after the AGM in August. If you are considering a position on the committee and are unsure what is involved, please feel free to touch base with me or any member of the committee and we will give you a run-down of what is involved.
I will not be at the meeting tonight or the August meeting and I thank Bruce for chairing the meeting in my absence. I will be at the Presentation night however on the 16th and am looking forward to catching up with everybody then.
The month of July means the start of the new financial year and means that it is membership fees renewal time. The club banking details are on the front page of the newsletter. We also have card facilities at the club meetings, and you can still pay in person at the club meeting tonight.
Anyway, that’s it for me for the month.
If you are on the road, please drive safe.
