PRESIDENTS REPORT March 2018 What a great photo comp event at the last meeting! A big thank-you to Katie for once again doing a fantastic job of organising the competition. So many wonderful and inspiring photos. Did you get yours in, displayed on the big screen? This club exists for its 4WD trips and social activities and for us to enjoy the company of like-minded people, nothing more, nothing less. So, if you were struggling to find good photos, maybe you are not getting out and about enough, partaking in the many trips and activities fellow members run every year. If, however, there is not much to your liking, you know what the answer is. Yes, run suitable activities yourself. It may seem daunting at first, but there are many experienced trip leaders within the club who are more than willing to help you in the planning, organising, and leading of an activity. Ask and you shall receive. We are a volunteer organisation, so trips and activities need willing volunteer leaders, otherwise they don’t happen – and then there would be no photos for the comp :( This last month has seen several great activities. Kevin ran his first trip (which unfortunately I couldn’t get to) but by all accounts it was a great success. I hear a couple of cars got embarrassingly stuck and had to be pulled out. Such is life. I expect fines are coming your way. Then there was the now annual Tonimbuk activity weekend, ably run by Les, Jamie, Corey and Nathan. Do you know where your first aid kit is? You just might need it one day. And what do you know about jumping snakes that leave bright red bite marks, and the required first aid treatment? No? Why not? Women (and men), do you know where your recovery gear is and how to use it. Have you ever used it? A few more people now have. Can you drive a car blindfolded while being told where to go by your partner – and still be friends afterwards? If you know the answers to these questions, you will have had a great weekend. If not, be ready for some new surprises and challenges next year – but you will have to actually attend, otherwise you will be disappointed again. However, just for something different, what about cheese-making? Some of you tried your hand at that just recently. I am sure it was most enjoyable. It is not something I am personally interested in, but many people are – fortunately. Otherwise, as someone who likes eating cheese, there wouldn’t be any for me to enjoy and I would be sad. So you see, if you want to run an activity, your options are fairly broad; there is no need to feel too constrained. No, we are not a hard-core 4WD club, but we do enjoy experiencing new things, seeing new places, and having great fun with great people. Our 4WD vehicle is simply the enabler for many of those experiences. See you soon.

Dale Rebgetz. 6

TONIMBUK FUN & GAMES WEEKEND 2018 Friday, March 9 - Monday March 12 We’re back again for fun & games at Tonimbuk, with some members arriving Friday; it was bloody hot, so we sat in the shade for the afternoon until it cooled off, before having tea and sitting around the camp fire until bed time. Saturday Saturday with numbers well down from last year we got started with “what will happen to our victims” (members). Event one (Two Dots) Snake bite - with a short drive through the bush where members pulled up and walked over to find a snake laying across the track and to be bitten by the fake snake. This was to see how they would cope with it. What would they do? Most did really well with it. Event Two Suboo 3 was stuck and needed a tow out - this was not a snatch recovery, just a tow. Edith & Janelle give it a go and very well done to both of you for having a go. After snatch they had a short drive into the up and down through a dry creek crossing and back to camp for lunch.

After lunch we did the blindfold driving - this time you had to zigzag between the witch’s hats. First up was Tim & Jack and they only hit one cone. Most members had a go at this - there was lot of funny things happening. After tea we got the fire going and when it was dark members drove around the bush track a few times. It was very dark. Sunday Day trip/Drive for the day - we headed out to the Bunyip Ridge track with some nice short climbs up on to Blue Range track, then around to Fifth Track, down in to Powelltown to Noojee and stopping at the Outpost for lunch. After lunch we headed back via the main roads to camp. 10


Monday Sleep in for some and then it was time to pack up and head home. Thanks for coming along and we hope you enjoyed the weekend.
