INTRO The Subaru 4WD Club of Victoria Inc. was originally formed 40 years ago by an enthusiastic group of Subaru owners. Today the club has expanded to include all Subaru 4WD and AWD vehicles, as well as all other makes of AWD, light 4WD and crossover/soft-roader type vehicles. The club aims to participate in the exploration of the Australian countryside without damage to the environment, vehicle or individual. Visitors are most welcome to attend the club’s General Meetings and contact committee members regarding participation in club activities. The club relies on membership fees to offset its running costs, including insurance. Membership fees are payable each year, due on 31 May. Fees for the 2016/17 year were agreed at the general meeting in April 2015 and are as follows:

Member rates: Single: $120 (Seniors card - $110) Joint/family: $140 - (Seniors card - $125). One off joining fee of $10 ($20 for Joint/Family) also applies All annual fees include FWDV affiliation and trip insurance: $48

F R OM T HE P RE SI DE N T President’s Report: October Magazine One thing that has always impressed me with this club is the way members go out of their way to help others. I have witnessed this on a number of occasions, the most recent being after our last club meeting. As Janelle and I were driving away from the car park the traditionally poor Subaru headlights seemed worse than usual; then we realised they weren’t working at all. Okay, turn around, head back to the car park to investigate. As it was not yet midnight the usual car-park meeting was still running, so to coin a phrase, many hands make light work. It wasn’t long before we were on our way with one headlight working (much better than none). Our thanks go to Dave, Rick, Damian, et al. Last month we reached another milestone – our club is now 40 years old. Echuca was the location where many present and past members joined to celebrate good times. As usual, things don’t always go according to plan (the intended camp site was under water), and as usual the situation was handled with aplomb – all would-be campers were quickly advised of a new camp site location. Well done to the organisers (Dave and Stephen). The celebrations were memorable with a river cruise, catered dinner, candlelight tour, and barbecue breakfast. At the dinner we had the honour of receiving a 40th Anniversary plaque from Four Wheel Drive Victoria, presented by their president, Damian Stock. For a club that has been around for forty years it is not surprising that there are some members who have provided extraordinary long-term service and dedication to the club; those members can be recognised by the awarding of Life Membership. Our 40th Anniversary dinner saw the awarding of five such memberships – to Bob Marshall, Damian Stock, Elaine Milkins, Phil Milkins, and Ruth Marshall. The awards were fittingly presented by an existing life member, Cynthia Rennolds. Congratulations and thank you to our life members; you have been instrumental in our club being the great club it is today. This month I have not been around much to participate in club activities, having been on a two-week cruise around New Zealand, spent with my elderly parents (from North Qld) and my sister and her partner (from Perth). As you can imagine given how far apart we live, it is not often that we get together as a family; this was a great way to do so. But back on topic, it was notable although hardly surprising that Subarus are popular in the rural areas of NZ. I also had an interesting and pleasant chat to a fellow 6|Page


traveller (from Australia) who loved her Subaru Outback and was now on her third, purchased so she could confidently travel the outback to pursue her love of painting. The interesting part is she thought the Outback was the first Subaru 4WD – a quirk of Subaru’s advertising at the time? Finally, don’t forget – this month’s club meeting is at the Ringwood Training Centre, not our usual venue, and begins with a barbecue at 6pm. The details are elsewhere in this magazine. See you there. Dale Rebgetz President.

UPCOMING Next Meeting – Tuesday 25th October (VENUE CHANGE) Date: Tuesday 25th October Venue: Ringwood Training Centre 3 Hill Street Ringwood Details: B.B.Q at 6PM Sausages: $1.00 Hamburgers: $1.50 Cans of drink: $1.00 The B.B.Q will be under cover. While this is going on cars can go up on the hoist. Then at 8pm our regular meeting will be held with super and door prize. Next Month: Robert Pepper

Club Awards – Advance Warning So at the Christmas Party (as is tradition) we will be presenting our annual Club Awards. These are a way of recognising those who have contributed to our club in a very positive way in the past year – particularly with the Clubman and Clubwoman Awards. There are also the other, rather entertaining, awards; including: Burnt Billy – most humiliating campfire cooking or lighting disaster Piggy Bank – individual who received the most number of fines Silver Socket – the most well maintained vehicle Bent Valve – mechanical breakdown on trips or vehicle most worthy of retirement Jacked Up – most number of flat tyres or most impressive puncture Bogger – vehicle stuck most often Think about the various incidents and amusing situations which have occurred in the last year and nominate away! You’ll be getting a nomination form sometime in the future.

Photo Competition – Advance Warning Our photo competition will once again be held at our February meeting this year. Categories: Best Portrait (photo of a person) Best group photo Best landscape/nature scene Best close-up nature shot (Flower, animal, etc.) Best Subaru action shot Funniest photo To don’t forget to keep that camera handy!!! All photographs submitted must have been taken within the last two years, taken by the person entering the photo, and taken at a club event. There is a limit of one photo per person, per category. Any photographs that have won a prize previously are NOT ELIGIBLE. Members in attendance at the February meeting will be able to vote for the best photos. Venue Coordinator Meredith Dale

Trips and Social Events We have a variety of trips coming up! With that we’d also like to remind you that if you want to get your name down on the list for a trip but maybe can’t make it to the meeting you are always welcome to contact the trip leader directly. As always, if you know a great location that you would love to lead a trip to (or even if you just want to suggest it) let us know, we’re always on the lookout for the next adventure!! Put up the suggestion and someone else might run it Put up the suggestion and ask for someone else who might want to co-lead it with you. You might want it run it yourself and if it is your first time we will provide you with a trip mentor.

It is the responsibility of any participating driver to contact individual trip leaders for clarification of individual trip requirements and standards. Financial members are encouraged to participate in as many trips as possible to increase confidence and experience. Visitors are welcome subject to the payment of the appropriate levy to cover insurance, but after two visits, should consider membership.
