Chairman’s Report This month I have had to get Lynda to write the Chairman’s Report as I am laid up in hospital due to circumstances beyond my control. For the next month Don Green will spearhead the Committee. Unfortunately, Lynda and I also had to miss the National AGM in Greymouth, but look forward to reading the Delegates Report from Tracey in September’s issue of the Bulletin. Winter certainly showed itself last month with some bitterly cold weather and that rather nasty wet stuff, enough now I say! John Stokes’ Veteran section meetings are gaining momentum with more members attending each month. A great way to share stories, renovation tips, spare parts and the companionship of like-minded individuals. The Motorcycle monthly run for July was the winter Fish ‘n Chip event to Kaiaua and what a turnout we had. About 70 motorcycles attended, including some from one make clubs, plus about 15 club eligible cars. Also there were members from Thames, Katikati and Waihi. It’s always great to catch up with old friends. This month is the countrywide Sunday rally for Daffodil Day Cancer Research, so please support this event. Come out and take part in the run which Tracey and Stephen Winterbottom have plotted, quite a fun event by all accounts and we are again finishing at the Sir Edmund Hillary Retirement Village in St Johns who wanted us to go back again. Another great opportunity for some fundraising for Cancer. There is a compulsory entry fee of $10.00 per vehicle for this event which this money is donated direct to the charity, plus whatever else we can raise. Put the date in your diary of Sunday 25th August. I’m sorry this is a bit disjointed but my brain is working overtime at the moment, running between home, hospital and work. We send our condolences to Stephen & Tracey Winterbottom on the passing of Rita Winterbottom, no doubt a number of you knew Rita (and Derek) when they were members of the Auckland Branch, before shifting and transferring to the Bay of Plenty Branch several years ago. Keep those two, three and four wheels turning safely. Martin & Lynda Spicer
