PRESIDENT’S REPORT – June 2021

 Hi everyone, I hope you have paid your subs for 2021/22 and updated your logbooks to ensure you are historically registered for next year.  There is still some time before we have to close off to honour our obligations under the Historic Registration Scheme and report all unfinancial TSOA members/drivers to DPTI.  If you haven’t already done so, make a resolution to do it this week by contacting a Club Representative listed on our website.

Last meeting was again well attended as members continued the logbook endorsement process.  It is a smooth process and certainly encourages members to come to our June and July meetings.   The Committee met before the meeting to review upcoming events and confirm

  • a club subsidy for the Christmas in July Run on Sunday 18 July
  • a return to the Royal Adelaide Golf Club for our Christmas dinner on Saturday 27 November and.
  • a club sponsored prize for our monthly quiz

John Tuohy surprised everyone and won Geoff Ellis’s quiz and it was pleasing to hear that Roger Lange had successfully sold Bob Farrell’s lovely TR8, shown below.  A beautiful car owned by a beautiful bloke!  Well done, Bob, Natalie and Roger!

 

The committee also confirmed Tuesday 17 August 2021, a normal Club meeting, as the date of our next AGM.  With great regret I advised the Committee and subsequently members at the Club meeting that I had decided not to continue as President in 2021/2022.  And so, you all have an opportunity to consider nominating for the position of President and serving the Club at the highest level.  It is an honour, a privilege and a vital role in ensuring the ongoing viability of the Club.  I never imagined or sought the role, but I have enjoyed it greatly.  I can honestly say that with the support given by a quality Committee who have all indicated their willingness to continue, anyone with the right interest and wishing to serve could do the job.  The Club needs someone to step up.  Why not you!  I am more than happy to have a chat about the Presidency, as are all members of the Committee about their respective roles.

Think seriously about nominating at the AGM.  I look forward to seeing you at the next meeting.

Kind regards, Peter Davidge (President)
