Greetings All

Once again this wonderful autumn weather has given us
all perfect opportunities to get out and about in our
vehicles, to enjoy the activities the club provides. Right
now I’m in Wilmington South Australia and we about to
visit the toy collection and Land Rover collection in this
small town. Tomorrow we will visit a large tractor, truck
and car collection on a farm near Coonalpyn. From there
we’ll start the trip home to complete a trip that has taken
us around four cattle stations in South Australia that I
have worked on.
I find myself once again in the president’s chair and thank
David for his dedicated work in this role. Thanks also to
retiring Past President Dallas for his dedication. We
welcome Anne De Bono to the committee and thank Tony
Brincat for his contribution. I look forward to the year
ahead, working with the committee, all other members
having agreed to remain in their roles.
At the AGM I was delighted to present 25 year
membership badges to Merv & Marie Batson, Linda
Parker and Ray & Barb van Galen. Such an honour for
these loyal members. Supper afterwards was enjoyed by
all together with much socialising.
A Swap planning meeting was held before the general
meeting last month and all is looking in good shape,
thanks especially to David and the committee. We still
need more volunteers – remember you get free entry and
a Devonshire tea. Please contact Murray Foran on
5248 2554.
Please always refer to your Backfire to check the calendar
of the many events and activities which provide something
for everyone and keeps us all busy.
Enjoy your cars
