President’s Thoughts for November 2011

We have just returned from the 2011 TSOA Nationals and what a superb event it was, 4 nights at Mt Gambier and 3 nights at Victor Harbor, with a 3 day add on in K.I. for those wanting to do more.

The event was well balanced with something for everybody with Pride of ownership, observation run, crayfish lunch, motorkhana, Naracoorte caves, steam train ride, and a great hill climb with a bit of moisture added from the sky to make more interesting.

I am sure these events will be reported in detail later in this copy of Trak or in next month’s Magazine, so I won’t double up here.

At this point I must congratulate the team who planned this event over the last 2 and half years, they presented a tremendous and interesting event that was so good you would believe it was put together by a team of professional event organizers.

We done and thankyou to the organising committee, Natalie and Bob Farrell, Sue and Rory Gibson, Peter and Julie Davidge, Roger and Cherri Lange, Alex and Sue Smithson and Peggie Argent, for their efforts with special thanks to Duane Kaak for acting as M.C. for the full event.
