President’s Report – January 2019
2019 is here and January is rapidly disappearing- so, what has happened since we last met for our Club meeting on December 4th?
We’ll hear about club events at our February meeting and read about same in our magazine or on our website.
Besides our club events-Murray Bridge hosted the FX-FJ Holden Nationals at the racecourse-a great day with a great showing of Holdens, good crowd numbers and a very suitable venue.
We have all celebrated another Christmas, welcomed a New Year and witnessed another Australia Day-all of these events enjoyed and/or celebrated in our own way and in varying degrees of indulgence.
So now we look forward to 2019 with various plans, possibilities and challenges that may unfold.
I have a challenge/request that I would like to share with you all.
As many of you may or may not know, besides my involvement with the ACC of MB, I am also involved with the Rotary Club of Mobilong. (Liz is the incoming President).
Our Rotary Club has nominated to cater at the Heritage Machinery Association National Rally, to be held at Sturt Reserve Murray Bridge, in March. It is being held over 3 days-22nd, 23rd, and 24th (Friday to Sunday). The Rotary Club will be catering with a selection of barbeque foods, canned drinks and possibly, donuts.
The number of exhibitors at this National Rally could be up to 1000 (almost 700 at time of publication) and the event is expected to generate 20-30,000 spectators through the gate over the 3 days.
This will be the largest event that we have ever catered for and it is for this reason that we are seeking help in this area.
If you can cook a sausage, flip a burger or help re-stock supplies from the trailer, we need you.
We would really appreciate a few hours of your time and would love to hear from you.
Anyone who is able to volunteer some time will receive a free pass into the event and a BBQ meal.
Talk to me at the club or phone 0408 813 436.
