Social Scene – June 2010

The day dawned dull, drizzly and quite cold for the mid week run on Wednesday 5th May, but it didn’t stop about 20 people meeting for coffee at Suzette’s Cafe at Hazelwood Park.  The run took us through picturesque valleys of the Adelaide Hills where the country was looking very good after the recent rains.   There was mist rising from the cold damp morning and autumn colours were the order of the day.   The destination for lunch was The Green Man Inn at Ashbourne at 12.30pm and unfortunately time did not permit a second coffee stop in Hahndorf.   The run was set by Andy, who is at present in the States, and took us on some different hills roads to normal.   Thanks Andy.

Despite a very gloomy weather forecast 60 cars turned out on what ended up a brilliant day weatherwise for the Day of Triumph at Civic Park at Modbury on Sunday 16th May.  The cars were displayed in a circle on the park and looked excellent, all gleaming in the sunshine.   Thanks to all those people who helped on the day, gate attendants Alex and Neil; score co-ordinators Alan and Lyle; and all the judges who had a good number of cars to judge.  Thanks also to Margie and Bill for providing the tent, tables and chairs, also Bob Cini for liaising with Tea Tree Gully Council staff and picking up the key.   Bob was at the vemuel very early to ensure entry to the park did not get blocked by other park users.

Congratulations to all trophy winners and especially Noel Schmidt with his newly restored red TR3A who took out the overall prize for the day.  We hope to see all trophy winners at the Christmas Dinner to collect their prizes on Saturday 4th December at the Royal Adelaide Golf Club.

The next ladies technical session is on Tuesday 8th June at Cafe Symphony Cnr Belair Rd and Princes Street Mitcham at 12 noon.   Hope to see you there.
