President’s Report – November 2018
It has been a very hectic few weeks and of course the next few weeks leading up to Christmas will be the same, although slightly varied.
As a club, we still have our annual cherry picking day with Roy and Elaine on December 5th (subject to weather conditions) and our Christmas party on the 9th.
If you need more in the world of cars, you can go along to the FX-FJ Holden Nationals which will be held from the 28th to 31st December at the Murray Bridge Racecourse. Saturday is their “Show and Shine”.
Murray Bridge Racecourse is a great venue for such an event-with a good undercover area and trees for shade. It should be an interesting event, particularly for those into Holdens.
Murray Bridge held the Model A Ford Rally in October and has the National Historic Machinery Association Rally in March 2019.
These events can all build and add to Murray Bridge being recognised as a prime location for such events. If these events are well organised and successful, it can lead to bigger and better events for our town in the future. We are in a great location for interstate visitors-whilst here they can visit “The Bend” or the National Motor Museum at Birdwood. We have untapped potential!
A big “thank you”to Pieter Kriel who has taken on the role of our club webmaster. There will be a transitional period as Peter settles into the routine of maintaining our website, but I am certain Pieter will have our website “up and running” very soon.
A reminder that there is NO CLUB MEETING in January. Our next club meeting is February 5th 2019.
Also, there will be an open-air screening of the movie, “Grease” at Sturt Reserve on Friday 4th January 2019. Members are invited to assemble their cars at “Sturts” between 7:00pm to 9:00pm to create atmosphere for the evening. Celebrating 40 years since it was produced, the movie will begin at approximately 9:00pm.
Remember pizza night at John and Vicki Courtney’s home on January 19th-for catering purposes please let them know if you are attending.
Finally, on behalf of Liz and myself, I would like to wish everyone best wishes for a happy, healthy and safe Christmas and New Year. Claude Minge
