Hello Members,

Another “Club Year” has passed by and in those 12 months the Club has enjoyed many outings and of course the highly successful Monaro Nationals. Once again thank you to all those Members who assisted in organizing and running the Nationals, and thank you to Keith Brinin and his wife Jan for organizing our monthly outings. I have always thought that the outings Organiser had the hardest job on the committee. Thank you also, to all the other Committee Members for their hard work, support and friendship.

By the time most of you read this Magazine, our A.G.M. will be over and a new Committee elected, hopefully with some new faces.

We are trialing a new format for this Meeting, by having Rare Spares host it at their store in Moss Street, Slacks Creek. The committee is hoping to introduce some new ideas into our outings and meetings, just to make things a little different, any feedback from you, the members would be appreciated.

Our recent Presidents Day at Wivenhoe Dam was held in near perfect winter weather with a good time had by those who attended. Congratulations to the dual President Choices of Hannah Daniels and Bailey James, both well deserved recipients. Nice to see some young members being so involved.

Our annual trip to the Warwick Jumpers and Jazz Festival was well attended and, as usual our cars attracted plenty of attention. It was nice to see Mick Gebbie, one of our long time members and his car, attend the Street Display. Mick now lives in Warwick.  

The Club hosted our Swap Meet at the Ipswich State School, which was the first time for a couple of years. As expected it was a cold start, but warmed up as the sun came up. There was a good turn out of Swappers and Lookers through the gate. Overall a successful event. Many thanks to the usual group of helpers for their ongoing support.

 We now turn our attention to the All Makes Car Show/ Monaro State Titles, to be held in Warwick, on Sunday, the 5th November, 2023. Please contact Craig Keene or me, if you are able to help in setting up or assist on the day.

Hoping to see more of our Members at Outings or at Meetings.
