I am currently writing this from a motel room in Northern Italy. Milan to be precise. By the time of the September meeting I will still be on my European adventure and from memory will be in either Paris or London.
Thank-you for the vote of confidence in me being voted in again as President. Things are exciting in the club presently as we have strong membership numbers and next year we head into our 50th year as a club. I thank all those who again who renominated for a position on the committee and I welcome Derk back on the committee after taking out Top Clubman at our recent presentation night.
I received the run report from Jim Bishop and after reading the report, all I can say is that it appeared to be another fantastic EMHC club run, this time with the GHAC (Derk’s other club).
As everyone may know we are holding next years state titles and the planning has already begun. If you are not on the committee and have some ideas for the state titles please share it with the committee as we plan to run another great event.
This months run is on Sunday September 15th 2019, it is a joint run with FX FJ Holden Club of Australia — Melbourne Chapter. It is the Interclub Challenge, which is being held at the Zone Bowling Centre, Forest Hill Shopping Centre, Level 3 270 Canterbury Road Forest Hill. I hope many can attend so we can win back the trophy.
Lastly I would like to on behalf of the club, offer our condolences to our friends of the Ballarat Early Holden Club and the family of Doug Reid for the recent passing of Doug. As Richard Fox mentioned on Facebook during Dougs passing he was an icon in the movement and will be sadly missed. For those who knew Doug would also remember that he was always up for a chat and you could always find him at the many of the car shows that are held.
Anyway, that’s about it for me for this month.
Until next month, stay safe and safe travels.
