A huge thank you goes to all the past committee and assistants that have made the Monaro Club of Queensland what it is today. It is a labour of love for most, with little thanks. THANK YOU all! Also a huge thanks goes to Craig, our outgoing President, who has tirelessly worked behind the scenes to do everything he could for the members. A hard act to follow. Congratulations to all others being reinstated and with the addition of E.J. as an additional photographer for the club.
I am a little humbled by the support and encouragement to run for the President’s position, and I do promise to try my best to help everyone enjoy the comradeship of being involved in a club. Not everyone wants the same outcomes, and we won’t all agree on every issue, but healthy discussions and a willingness to compromise, will ensure most members can enjoy most things. If you have a suggestion, idea, or constructive criticism, please talk to me or any of the other very approachable committee members. John is always searching for club run locations - help him out.
Our August 20th run was heading north from Brisbane to Woodford with the Sunday markets being the drawcard of this rather busy little township. The markets were probably not as good as hoped, although the ladies seemed to find bargains, but the friendship, conversations and camaraderie made up for it. The bakery/coffee shop enticed most of us. Thanks John for the organisation, Anne-Maree and I enjoyed the day out with the members. Driving the car always makes me happy.
Our next run should be a blast out to Laidley.
See you then, the more smiling faces the better,
