Welcome to the November newsletter and what a big month it has been in some ways with the lifting of restrictions, the planning of club runs to come and a change of venue for the 43rd AEHF Victorian FX FJ State Titles.
Although some restrictions have been lifted, I don’t think we can have a complete meeting at the clubrooms until the December meeting, that is why tonight’s meeting is being held via zoom. I hope that we can see so many members at the clubrooms when we once again start having meetings there.
We have organised our first covid-normal run for Sunday 28 November, I know for those who have looked at said that’s not the third Sunday you are correct. We decided as a committee to hold it a little later for the month, just to ensure that the run could still go ahead regarding any restrictions etc. Anyways the club run will be to the Kyneton botanical gardens for a club BBQ lunch. We will be leaving the clubrooms at 9.30am and meeting at BP Keilor Park from 10 to leave at 10.30am. The club will be providing the food, so all you are required to bring is your choice of drink and a comfy chair and some stories to share as we have our first get together since lockdown.
Now onto the State Titles, it was decided by the State Titles Committee that we move the venue for the 2022 43rd AEHF Victorian FX FJ State Titles from the Heritage Golf Course and Yarra Valley Lodge to ATURA located at 5–17 Doveton Avenue, Doveton. The weekend is to remain the same with the event to be held on 15th and 16th October 2022. Accommodation has been negotiated at the special rate of $149 per Deluxe room, (which includes breakfast for one person and an additional person will be charged at $20) Bookings can be made by calling 9771 6000 and reserving a room under the Early Model Holden Club. For those that have not checked or received their refund from Yarra Valley Lodge, please check to make sure this has been completed. I have had reports from members where Yarra Valley Lodge has reversed some refunds issued back to a member’s credit card. So please check your cards, accounts etc to ensure you have received your refund.
For those club members that need to have their Club Permit Scheme books signed and are having trouble having these signed for renewal, please bring them along to the next club run etc or get in contact with me and we can arrange to have these signed by post.
Anyway, that’s it for me for the month.
If you are on the road, please drive safe.
