President’s Report – June 2018
It is June – that means winter has officially arrived. Does this mean that we sit at home and try to keep warm? For some, the answer is affirmative, but as far as our club is concerned, it’s time to head north. Queensland would be good and some of our members (the smart ones?) are heading north to warmer climes. For the rest of us, we can head north on Wednesday 20th June – in fact, 100kms north –to Swan Reach!
Come along to see what a small community has done in establishing a classic car gallery-run by the Murray Mallee Auto Club volunteers and built not only as an attraction for tourists and visitors, but also to try and curb the decline of small towns and communities in rural areas. Attendees will be given true country hospitality- a 3 course luncheon and gallery tour for $20:00 per person.
Read all about it in coming events.
Also during winter, we have the July 15th Pub Run and on August 5th, the Keswick Barracks Run. The two “Johns” (John Courtney and John Ali), will tell you all about those runs in greater detail in the near future.
Please note that our July meeting and our August meeting will commence at 7:30pm as we have guest speakers/presenters.
On July 3rd, local historian of some note, Mr Ken Wells, will give a visual presentation “We Remember Murray Bridge”.
I have seen one of Ken’s presentations and can highly recommend his photos that show how Murray Bridge has changed and events that have shaped our history. REMEMBER-timed to start at 7:30pm.
On August 7th, also commencing at 7:30pm, our guest speaker will be Tammy Shepherd who will be informing us “How a club can access funding and assistance for buildings and infrastructure”.
Have members been to “Cars and Coffee” at the Coles top car park on Swanport Road? (first Sunday of each month). This is a great cross-section of local vehicles and motoring enthusiasts. The organiser of Cars and Coffee, Steve Coombe, is trying to get 100 vehicles in attendance, so come along and enjoy the morning from 8:00am to 10:00am and perhaps this goal will be achieved.
