Welcome to the May newsletter.
By all accounts it appeared to be a good run to the National Steam Trains in Scoresby. Our club even took out an award for the best club.
The year seems to be flying by. It is already May, and the days are getting shorter, and the weather is starting to get a little cooler. This month’s run is on Sunday the 15th of May is a little different as we are heading to Bendigo for a day trip to visit the Elvis: Direct from Graceland presentation being held at the Bendigo Art Gallery. The cost to enter the exhibition is $30 for an adult and $25 for a concession. This is a limited run show and is only in Bendigo until July, hence the reason we are doing the run this month. We will be leaving the club rooms at 8.30am and leaving Calder Park service station at 10.00am sharp.
The Presidents Run to be held on the weekend of the 18th and 19th of June to Maryborough is booked out at the motel we are staying in. Balances are due by the end of May. Please see details in this newsletter on how to pay Janine the outstanding balance.
As we are getting closer to the mid-year mark, that means that we are getting closer to our clubs Presentation night. This year it will be held on the 16th of July at the Knox Club in Wantirna South. More details will be made available shortly regarding price and menu.
Our club is hosting the 43rd FX FJ Victorian State Titles on the weekend of 15 and 16th of October at the Atura Dandenong. If you have not already booked your accommodation for this great weekend or sent your entry form in, can you please do this as soon as possible. Rooms are filling fast, and it will be a great weekend away with all our Victorian friends from the other clubs.
Don’t forget the Nationals are on this year over the Christmas / New Years break. In Cooma NSW. Many have already booked their accommodation for the Nationals but will need to re-enter the Nationals as all money was refunded to entrants after the 2020 Nat’s were cancelled due to COVID. The nationals will be a great event, we have some good events and day trips planned.
If you are on the road, please drive safe.
