President’s Report Apr/May 2021
As I write this President’s Report for April/May, it is a few days until Easter weekend which will commence on Friday April 2nd. Easter Sunday April 4th is the first Sunday of the month and that is Cars and Coffee time.
The inaugural meeting of the Cars and Coffee at the Wharf Precinct, Sturt Reserve on Sunday March 7th was a huge success with approximately 275 vehicles on display. (Think about this….Cars and Coffee was a display of vehicles with a combined conservative value of over $10 million-200 vehicles @ $50,000. There were 275 vehicles, many with the value in excess of $50,000, on display with no admittance fee, locally at our riverfront.)
This is a drawcard and an attraction that has huge potential. This potential can be viewed if you Google “Cars and Coffee” as a global event. It is happening in most countries of the world, as well as throughout Australia and South Australia. Cars and Coffee is a monthly event at Mount Barker, Mannum, Victor Harbor, the Barossa Valley, Adelaide and suburbs.
Thanks to all of the ACCMB members who attended the inaugural riverfront Cars and Coffee. I encourage members to continue supporting this event. During the next 3 months a determination by the RC of MB as to the viability of continuing to utilise the Wharf Precinct as a permanent venue for the Cars and Coffee event will be conducted.
Within our club we have had some events which allowed members to get together for fellowship and fun. It was good to see members socialising at the “Biggest Morning Tea and Sausage Sizzle” at Terry and June Mabbitts’ home and the Ladies Day Run to Callington and Mannum. Thanks to Brenda and June and Terry for your time and effort in making these annual events both enjoyable and successful. Our Cruise night to Swanport Reserve was cancelled due to inclement weather but will be rescheduled in the near future. Jan will keep us informed.
Our annual “Pinnaroo Campout” in April is happening, but not at Pinnaroo. A different location and a new name!! Please refer to the email from Vice President John. You will also hear the “campout” details at the April 6th meeting.
See you at Cars and Coffee bright and early on Sunday morning or at Tuesday night’s meeting.
I hope this finds you and your extended families well.
