Welcome to the May newsletter, at the time of writing it appears club life is getting back to normal here in Melbourne. We had a great run last month to the Holden Museum at Metcalfe followed by lunch at a pub in Maldon. Even Cammo from the Melbourne Chapter joined us on the run. All reports (and Kim’s report is in the newsletter) said everyone enjoyed themselves. (I had a little mishap with a brake hose, which the guys at Metcalf Holden Museum were able to source me another).
We have another great run planned for this month to Marysville. We will be leaving the clubrooms at 10.00am. For those who don’t remember the official club run is usually the 3rd Sunday of the month. As we have many members on the route to Marysville, we are having a second meeting point at Coldstream and plan on leaving that location at 10.45am.
Next month’s run is the Presidents run to Sale. We have around 24 rooms booked at the motel in Sale and have nearly 50 people attending this run. This is going to be a great weekend away. There are more details in the newsletter, but we will be stopping at the Trafalgar Holden Museum, Gary Hislop business in Traralgon and then onto Sale. On the Sunday we will be going to the Gippsland Vehicle Collection in Maffra. If you haven’t told Janine and still want to go, please let her know at tonight’s meeting or as soon as possible.
Although not an official run this year the 44th Historic Winton will be held on 22nd and 23rd of May at the Winton Motor Raceway, with more details in the newsletter.
The club presentation night planning is going well, please see Jim Bishops write up in this month’s newsletter for more information.
You will see in the newsletter we have 50th Anniversary polo shirts for sale. If you are interested in these shirts, please see Bruce Graham, as well on the 50th we are now taking bookings for the dinner on the 4th of September in Mulgrave and please see Jim. The shirts are $30 each and dinner at the 50th Birthday is also $30. I would like to thank Bruce and Peter for their work in this area.
On shirts we will need to know sizes for State Titles shirts so we can place the order and have the correct sizing. I will be discussing this at tonight’s meeting. As this report seems to be all about clothing, following on from last meeting, there was some interest in club t‑shirts. Rob Redwood has secured some t‑shirts for around the $20 mark.
Just on the State Titles planning is progressing well for October and if you haven’t already booked your accommodation, I would recommend that you book this now, as at time of writing nearly all the rooms have been booked. If you have any concerns about the state titles, please do not hesitate to contact any member of the committee.
If you are on the road, please drive safe.
