Social Report – December 2010

The mid week run on 3rd November saw 18 people congregate at Eagle on the Hill Lookout in rather dismal cool weather conditions. See report by Maggie Smith.

The run on 14th November organised by John Sampson was attended by well over 60 people from TSOA and the Austin Healey Sprite Club. The cars were on display on the lawns outside the Greenock Aviation Museum where we all enjoyed a BBQ’d Barossa sausage and salad lunch before having a look around the museum, which housed numerous model aeroplanes,  a World War II Avro Anson and Airspeed Oxford, an early De Havilland Vampire jet and other full size early model planes.  There was also a craft shop to keep the ladies interested while the men wandered through the museum and inspected the machinery on display.  There was an optional run route back to Adelaide via Virginia Nursery.   A number of people took up this option and enjoyed a coffee and a wander around what can only be described as an interesting place to visit, with a large restaurant, gift shop, kitchenware shop and a very large plant nursery and pots etc for outdoors.   This was a very successful Sunday run and the last one for 2010.   Thanks John for your organisation.

The Annual After Christmas run is being held on Wednesday 29th December and heading to Lyndoch to the Monkey Nut Bistro at Kies Winery.   This is always a popular event so if you are not doing anything on that day, please come along and join us.  Bill Smith has organised the route, and we will meet at the Crafers Hotel for coffee from 10.00am departing at 11.00am.

January sees an informal meeting on Tuesday 18th when there will be a short  technical talk by John Sampson on Bundy Tube for the men, and the ladies head off down King William Road to enjoy a coffee and/or gelato and a chat. The annual ice cream run is again being organised by Tom and Judie, who have been running this event for the past 18 years.    Hopefully we will see a warm evening and nice sunset as we drive along the coast from Glenelg to Semaphore Park and Noonies Ice Cream Kiosk.  There is plenty of parking alongside the kiosk and they also serve fish ‘n chips, donuts, coffee, milkshakes etc.

Rory & I  take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
