Thanks to Dean and Lisa for organising the after Christmas Run, which was attended by 24 people.  A great run, and the Charleston Hotel was lovely and the food was excellent.

The Informal meeting at the Clubrooms, saw some rocker cover racing, with Garry Buckton making his own car to race and blitzing the field! ….a good informal night.

The Ice Cream Run saw 25 people attend on a great summer’s night heading to Noonies for dinner, ice-creams, donuts, coffee and hot chips. 3 Stags, 2 TR4’s, 1 TR7 and 3 TR6’s enjoyed the run with a few modern cars as well enjoyed the sun set along the waterfront.

Australia Day was Open House at Lawrie and Kaye’s to close off the month, we are all looking forward to it.

The Next event planned is the MSCA Presentation Day Sunday 26th February at Virgara Winery. We are planning a run from Civic Park to Virgara, at Angle Vale and the club will supply chicken and salad for lunch for those attending. We must have your RSVP for catering.

March will see the All-British Day at Echunga Oval.

Get well wishes go to Judy Long, who has been under the weather, Sue Smithson who managed to get Covid for Christmas, and anyone else who is not well, we send our best wishes too.

Bill and Margie

President’s Report June 2022

Thursday, June 30th, 2022

This year’s Weekender was arranged in late May, around Murray Bridge.  The photos above give a tiny insight into the fun we had and the interesting venues we visited.  No doubt these will be added to in later sections of Trak.  Thanks Bill and Margie Berlemon for another wonderful weekender.

Once again at our last meeting there was a great turn up as members came along to get their logbooks signed off before the end of the financial year.  It was particularly pleasing to see the camaraderie that was displayed and the vigorous discussions taking place as members renewed friendships and common inTRests with others they hadn’t seen, due to Covid or not being able to get to meetings for a while.

The night was added to by 2 talks from members on memorabilia (or trips down memory lane).  My thanks go to Kevin Foster and John Tuohy for the efforts they put in in entertaining us.

Our Day of Triumph Mid-Year Trophy Presentation is at Mick O’Shea’s Pub, Hackham, this year on Sunday 26 June.  It will have taken place by the time you are reading this, and we hope you were able to take advantage of the Club’s subsidy and enjoyed the event.

As I’ve mentioned before, we are looking for a commitment from someone to take over running of the Day of Triumph (DOT) from Ian Rigby.  When mentioning this at the last meeting a suggestion was made that perhaps a small group (3 to 4) might be better placed to take over the role.  I believe this is worth considering and so if you would like to be included and contribute to this vital Club role, let Ian (0417 085 083) or me (0438 765 358) know as soon as possible.

Another reminder about the AGM, which is coming up at the August meeting.  A strong Club thrives because of strong participation by members at all levels.  Think about what you might do to contribute to the Club and let us know at the AGM or before.  All members of the Committee are available at any time to chat about our roles.

Some interesting Club events are coming up so check out the social calendar.   I look forward to seeing you in July.

Kind regards,

Peter Davidge (President)
