Chairman’s Report Hello all again, first our sincere thoughts go out to Phyl Ellis and family with the sad loss of Vern. Vern had been a very active member over the years in the Ashburton Branch. The Spring Rally was held on the 29th September with a smaller number than normal. It was a good run around the Wakanui area ending up at David & Leonie Rollinson's farm at Pendarves for lunch. We had a look around the garden and farm yard. A big Thanks to them for having us there. Results for Spring Rally Veteran Motorcycle Commercial

David & Marion Oakley Percy Ralston & Time trial Ian & Nola Hydes

The North Cape to Bluff Tour came to us on the 13th October for a evening meal, with 18 of them and 26 of us there. All Feed Up did the meal for this. Three cars went to the Fairton School fund raising day to give some rides for the day. The committee have made a decision to put a stop to taking people from rest homes, schools, as this could be a safety issue, but we will put vehicles on Display. Club night was at Cullimore Engineering on the17th October. What a great turn out for this night, good to see some different faces, 40 people there, more in Blowout. John Stewart from Stewarts Car Collection in Christchurch is taking the old truck Chassis from the parts shed. Also giving us a quote to paint the Museum floor. The door jamb around the Museum front door will be replaced soon by Jim Reed Builders. Hope everyone who went to the Christchurch Swap Meet, found some treasures, it was another good swap meet. Annual Rally 25th January 2020. Entry form in this Blowout, meal etc. will be sorted out before next Blowout. That’s it again, Cheers Trevor Begg 5

Back Country Excursion 18th January 2020 This excursion which is intended for veteran vehicles only, will travel from Hawarden to Whitnow Station and return to Hawarden. The total distance travelled will be 62 kms, which includes 46 kms of good unsealed road. There are no fords on the road. The unsealed portion of the road carries very little traffic as it is only used for access to various stations and is mildly challenging as it includes hills. A backup vehicle and trailer will be provided. Entrants will require a packed lunch. Road speeds on the unsealed portion of the road are envisaged to be low in order to prevent stone chips to paintwork, and to allow an enjoyable veteran motoring experience. Meet at Hawarden at the Resene paint shop car park, Hawarden Whakaari Rd, at 10.00 am. If the weather is unsuitable the event will be postponed. Space is available for parking trailers at the venue. If you wish to attend or for information please contact David and Marion Oakley, Ph 021 370 956 or 03 308 7323 E: 8

CLUB NIGHT: We held our best attended Club Night on a cold and wet evening on the 17th of October with 40 members in attendance. The venue was Cullimore Engineering in Ashburton’s reasonably new industrial estate. After decades of makeshift buildings, Ian Cullimore’s new and purpose built building opened last year. The building is built to accommodate all of their specialist equipment and has two gantry cranes spanning the whole factory, which makes handling the large jobs safe and easy. Cullimores complete all types of engineering from farm and contractor work to irrigation and smaller one-off projects. They even had a traction engine on the premises, which was receiving new gears, and we were also able to see these being made. They were also making a small run of D-Type Jaguar brake calipers, which we inspected.

NORTH CAPE TO BLUFF A group of VCC people travelling from North Cape to Bluff, called at our Clubrooms for tea on Sunday night, 13th October. All Fed Up catered for it and put on a lovely filling meal. The group left North Cape on Sept 24th and will get to Bluff on Oct 18th. They had a very wet time coming down the North Island with some cars leaking. I was told that they had 2 days in Christchurch, one to venture out to the Swap Meet, and one to do as they pleased. Some took the Trans Alpine to Greymouth and return. Then on Sunday it was suggested they could go to Ferrymead and / or Akaroa before arriving in Ashburton. We opened up the Museum and the parts shed for them to browse about. The next morning 13 ventured out to the Aviation Museum, then they travelled to Geraldine, finishing the day in Oamaru.

Princess Court 27th November Between 2pm & 3pm,I want 8 to 10 vehicles just for a display for them to have a look at. Could I have some names please and I would like something from all sections of vehicles. Contact Trev B 308 3803.

Tiny House Living Not for much longer! Our renovation project is getting very close to completion and we expect to be in for Christmas. After two and a-bit-years in 36sqm, a 90sqm 3 bed home will be spacious. Leen Braam has been storing all our furniture in his Tinwald complex, so it will be exciting to discover just what is behind the roller door there. The plasterers are working on the house right now, so paint, trim, electrical, plumbing and floor coverings still to go. The fastest moving part of all this is our bank balance, and not in a good way! As we are on a corner, there will be a change of address from Hastings to Bayview Street. Roll on Christmas! Alan and Chris Gulleford 16

VCC NZ Annual General Meeting Report 9.00am Tony Kokshoorn (Mayor of Greymouth) addressed the meeting, a very good speaker. Andrew Anderson (life member) also spoke about encouraging youth into the club, by starting his presentation by saying, “us founding members were boy racers once� Beaded Wheels has been available for purchase online with limited uptake, this may be discontinued. Voting for Executive members, Ed Boyd, Tony Bartlett and George Kear were elected .

Highland Fling weekend event was discussed as this conflicted with another rally that had been going for years. The executive felt that the two events catered for two different audiences and was to continue. The Highland Fling will be the North Island equivalent to Irishman Rally Several reports were presented and discussed. A presentation was given again for the Vero Festival of Historic Motoring to encourage more member participation. Murray Thomas from Bay of Plenty won the John L Goddard Trophy, there were several nominations received for this award from all over the country General Business; there was a proposal that we will be looking at up dating our Logo to depict who we are instead of our old logo being confused with flying (stylised originally from Bentley). Agreement was given to explore new options. Strategic Plan update, head office, branches and members should be using Facebook and social media more to attract new members and to share news and events more. It is a good source of information for the tech savvy. Meeting closed 2.45pm 17

THE SEARCH FOR THE LESSOR NEVIS TIT This important ornithological expedition, organised and lead by well known and highly respected ornithologist and general dogsbody David Oakley from Upper Tinwald, was the 17th in a series of annual off road excursions organised by members of the Ashburton VCC, with the aim of exploring, reclaiming or discovering something new in the back country of the South Island. This year's event had the added attraction of a Higher Purpose, with the search for an endangered bird, and participants were instructed to bring camouflage clothing, suitable for crawling through the undergrowth, binoculars at the ready. Another part of the expedition was the search for the greater Cromwellian shag, rumoured to be more active on Saturday nights in the flourishing metropolis of Cromwell. Seventeen cars and their excited crews assembled at the Ashburton VCC clubrooms for final instructions from the Great Leader, and all were issued with their egg. Yes, their egg. To set the mood for such a serious quest, all crews had to look after an egg for the duration of the expedition, to get them in the mood for possible similar discoveries. The egg had to remain with someone at all times, including meals, social events, etc, and non maternal rule breakers, and possibly egg breakers, faced the possibility of considerable fines. The first day was really like a mini Irishman, as the cast meandered around familiar South Canterbury roads before morning tea at Fairlie. The day quickly turned into a real Irishman, as we were able to go into the property, have lunch, look through the museum, and other aspects of this remarkable station before driving over farm tracks to join up with a network of interesting canal roads before reaching Twizel , where egg welfare was checked by the eggsecutive officer. Cars and eggs were all in one piece, dinner eaten, and cars prepared for the next day. Model A's were the most common car, with Dodge well represented, plus Wolseley, De Soto, Fargo, Land Rover and the inevitable Austin 7, a van sort of thing belonging to Paul Fleming. Day 2 was a fairly simple drive to Cromwell via more canal roads, and for some, a side trip to the original Lindis Hotel, a wonderfully preserved old building. Even the Austin chugged up the Lindis, although it was passed by a few cyclists, but it went splendidly down the other side, and caught many of the cyclists in the next few hours as it chugged on to Cromwell. A side trip to Bendigo was another highlight, with the view from the top making the steep climb worthwhile. We arrived at the Victoria Arms hotel in Old Cromwell


Town for dinner, but were told we were booked for January. While the Great leader sorted out the problem, some took the opportunity to look for the greater Cromwell shag, with mixed results. Eggs were checked, petrol bought, and preparations made for the following day. Day 3 was the Big One, in which we entered the natural habitat of the Lessor Nevis Tit, the Nevis Valley. The Nevis, as it is generally known, is a remarkable public road, one of the highest in the country, and perhaps the most isolated. It runs from Bannockburn to Garston and crosses the Nevis River 23 times. It was the scene of many mining ventures in the late 1800's and early 1900's, and there was a small settlement with a hotel, store, etc, the remains of which are clearly marked with information boards. There is snow on the ground for three months of the year, so the settlement didn't last long. There are still two permanent house in the valley. Because of all the recent rain, the 23 fords were full, and added to the challenges were 5 bogs, all deeply rutted. Progress was slow and thoughtful, and Wayne O'Donnell in his ex army Land Rover V8 was sent ahead at each body of water to find the soft spots etc. All the drivers were experienced in such conditions, but everyone got stuck at some stage, and Wayne and back up Donald Williamson in a 4 WD were kept busy. The 1917 Dodge of Murray Toms from Tauranga, with it's enormous wheels, proved the most adept at mastering the conditions, and remarkably, the Austin 7 tended to float across with annoying ease, rather like a rubber ducky. Several stops were made for ornithological reasons, and after several false alarms, a Lessor Nevis Tit was spotted. Donald Williamson crawled bravely forward across the landscape, trying to avoid the prickly Spaniards, but his nervous gasps disturbed the Tit, which disappeared. However most had seen it, so a suitable celebration was held, and the relevant government department will be notified. The formal name will be "Nevis minor quercus iensis titus" and will be gazetted soon. After that excitement, the group pressed on, and John Davies, in his urge to be first, charged a bog, the bottom of which was shaped like a bowl. The Model A came to rest on a considerable angle , with passenger Kate McIlroy in danger of submerging as water flowed briskly into the car. But with 3 solid farmers standing on the upper running board for balance, the Model A chugged on through, demonstrating how not to approach a bog. It's the only time that John has ever had leftist leanings. Shortly after that excitement, as we climbed out of the valley to look down on Gartson, and up at the Remarkables, the Austin 7 expired in a cloud of of smoke and steam.


Some callous individual suggested pushing it off the edge, but after it cooled down and gallons of various fluids were added, it struggled on and with the rest of us, reached the safety of the Garston pub, where man and machine partook of suitable refreshment, then drove to Kingston and our accommodation. Day 4 was a rest day for some as the the Nevis had taken a toll on man and machine, but the hardy ones with the proper spirit set off for Mt Nicholas station, the Mavora lakes and Walter Peak. By Mossburn three of the normally reliable Model A's had expired, so it was a select group that pressed onto the Mavora Lakes for lunch, where we were needed to tow a rental Toyota out of a ditch, always such a satisfying feeling. We then pressed on to Mt Nicholas and Walter Peak through some magnificent country and good shingle roads, but with a few deep fords. Walter Peak is of course very tourist orientated, but it's always a thrill to watch and listen to the Earnslaw as it berths, and to look across the Lake Wakitipu to Queenstown. A lot of motoring and a very long day, but through a part of the country that very few people get to, and well worth the effort. Day 5 saw an early start and down to Lumsden, then across some wonderful Southland roads, via Riversdale, Wendon, Maitland, Waikaia, Kelso, Heriot, Edievale, Moa Flat and to Ettrick for lunch. We then forged on to Millers Flat, turned over the Clutha and onto the Lake Onslow road. Very much a long and winding road across bare tussock country to Paerau and Patearoa and thence to Ranfurly for petrol. The very hardy pressed on to Middlemarch and Ramrock road which took them to Bucklands Crossing and to then our destination of Waikouaiti. The more pragmatic, mostly those in a car with a lower cruising speed, took a short cut via the Pigroot and back to Waikouaiti. Another huge day of marvellous motoring , yet again through roads that are seldom travelled. Inspiring stuff. Day 6 was along SH1 and home. Huge thanks to chief organiser and head ornithologist David Oakley and his wife Marion, who as always put a vast amount of time into organising such an epic trip and to Bruce McIlroy who helped plot the route, a mammoth task given the distances covered. Bruce was unable to take his Model A because of a foot operation, so he borrowed a Toyota 4WD and asked me to be his works driver, a great honour indeed, with the bonus of being part of a significant ornithological discovery.

VCC NZ AGM & Executive Meeting Report Meeting held at Ashley Motor Inn Greymouth 16th & 17th August 2019 Executive Meeting Matters Arising; Much discussion held about who can approve the amendments to Branches constitutions, if there are changes a request can be made to head office to receive a word document, make changes and send back to head office. Still not resolved to who approves any changes. Health & safety checklist that should be used prior to every event, the question was asked to why branches need a H&S plan, discussion was deferred to Saturday afternoon so more information can be sought to clarify the need. As we ran out of time this issue was not discussed again. Information to be emailed to all branches again. The Beaded Wheels DVD’s have been sent to those that have requested copies, there will be no more copies produced but is available online.
