President’s Report – October/November 2017
October has arrived and that means it is time for the Twin Bridges Rally to be held between 20th to 22nd. Staged every 2 years this rally is the culmination of many months of planning and hard work by our volunteer committee. They give up their time to make sure the Rally weekend and all the activities and events that it encompasses runs smoothly and efficiently as well as having interesting activities for all participants. Of course the committee of 6 cannot carry out every aspect of the rally so help is required from all of us as club members to make this event a success; whether it is in helping with parking, setting up the hall, assisting with food or cleaning up – to name just a few; we need your help. So please help make this event a success. The committee of Graham & Maureen Edwards ,Roy & Elaine Bretag, Neil & Ricky Kaak will advise us re help required.
Registration of entries to participate in The Twin Bridges Rally are closing now, so please lodge your entry with the committee now. Information re the rally was included in our last (August/September) Auto Torque magazine or visit the club website.
“Spring has sprung, the grass has ‘ris, I wonder where the good weather is” (apologies to the author of the original version).
It has been a mixed bag with the weather. Our club run to Kondoparinga Homestead on September 13th saw most participants using modern vehicles due to the weather, but it was a great day with most activities inside the homestead. Thanks Brenda for organizing the day, I’m sure you’ll give us an overview of the day’s events.
The Bay to Birdwood run for classics (1956 – 1981) also had to endure some very windy weather as did The Pedal Prix at Murray Bridge, the local Football Grand Final at Tailem Bend and the Murray Bridge Show. This perhaps sounds a little negative, so to be positive, everyone survived! And lets be positive because the weather will be perfect for the Twin Bridges Rally. See you there!
