May 2019

Hi all,

It has been a busy month in April and it looks like May will be no dif­fer­ent. Our club run to Andrew’s and then onto Aldo’s place was a huge suc­cess. I would like to thank both Andrew and Aldo for their hos­pi­tal­i­ty in allow­ing us, their fel­low mem­bers, to see there builds.

On Good Fri­day, Janine and I (and the kids) went to a Roy­al Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal Good Fri­day appeal car show in Keilor. There was a nice vari­ety of cars from the 30s through to the 80s. It was also nice to see Richard Fox’s old green FX sedan on dis­play that he recent­ly sold. Good to see that although it has left our club and gone to the Mel­bourne chap­ter that it won’t be lost and hid­den in a shed and we will still see it regularly.

Although the weath­er is sup­posed to get cold­er this time of year, we have been for­tu­nate to have some nice weath­er. I hope that some of that nice weath­er can con­tin­ue through to May as we have a huge month planned. It all starts off this week­end after the gen­er­al meet­ing with Bumpers by the Bay on Sun­day the 5th of May in Williamstown. Details are in the newslet­ter. This event is get­ting big­ger by the year and is host­ed by our friends in the Mel­bourne chap­ter. The club also has a run to Win­ton between the 17th and 19th of May for the 43rd His­toric Winton.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly the air muse­um run has been moved to June 16th as there was no one avail­able to open up the muse­um on the day we request­ed in May. More details regard­ing this run will be in the June newsletter.

I would like to fin­ish my report off by wel­com­ing our newest mem­ber to the EMHC fam­i­ly. On Tues­day 23rd April 2019, lit­tle Court­ney Paige Read was born weigh­ing a healthy 4940 grams and being 53cm long (so maybe not so lit­tle). I would like to con­grat­u­late mum (Lisette) and dad (Aaron) on the birth of their beau­ti­ful daugh­ter. Im sure our life mem­ber Trevor (and San­dra) are also very proud. (and are prob­a­bly still cel­e­brat­ing). It won’t be long to we see her at a club event or the nationals.

That’s about it for me for this month.

Until next month, stay safe and safe travels.
