CHAIRMAN’S REPORT// By Ian Elmsly

Welcome to another monthly report. I feel like I’ve missed the month and in reality I have with being away at the crucial time of the Club meeting and Sunday Shed Run. However, Fleetwood Mac seemed like a reasonable excuse to me and I can report it was a great concert with all the music our generation knows (or some do!!). By all accounts the Club meeting was a success in the capable hands of Club Captain Esther and the Shed Run was well attended on a lovely spring day – I do have a question mark over the Coffin Club visit (yes, not a misprint -Coffin) but by all accounts, it was well received. Planning has well and truly started for the 2020 Art Deco Festival and a steady stream of registrations have been evidenced. As with proceeding years, this is our major fund raiser and accordingly we will require a number of volunteers, so please don’t hesitate to get in early and offer your services to either myself, Esther or Malcolm. Also, with the Car Rides, open cars are always in demand and we are very reliant on the generosity of Hooters and visitors, so if you know of any open cars within the Club, let us know.

October 2019

As the Club Captain will have mentioned, we have a number of events between now and Christmas, particularly Safari Weekend and Homestead Run so mark your calendars and lets ensure we have good turnouts. Over the winter months there has been a number of Sunday Runs where numbers have been low as is also the case with attendance at Club Nights. This of course naturally raise’s questions. If numbers remain low we may have to review – food for thought. In the meantime, let’s look forward to some good spring weather and nice outings and let’s hope the price of fuel does not hit us to much!!


CLUB CAPTAIN// By Esther Smith

I have been thinking about the evolution of our Club nights, when I was first involved in the club, the monthly club night or Noggin and Natter as it was called then was a must attend event. Over the years the structure of the evening has changed significantly, for some time it had a formal meeting structure with minutes been taken and often lengthy discussions of club business. If the matter was contentious then meetings could get quite voluble with vociferous arguments raging to and fro often lasting over several months, with special general meetings been called when factions were unable to reach a consensus . Since we moved into the new club rooms, branch life has been a lot quieter. Maybe this is a reflection of the fact that some of the more contentious matters such as building the new clubrooms and the sale of the Rolls Royce have been resolved, even if not always to everyone’s satisfaction. Recently there has been a distinct drop off in numbers attending the club nights, this might be a reflection of people wanting to stay home by the fire. I think we have had some really interesting evenings lately, it seems a great pity that more members don’t make the effort to come along and participate. If you have any thoughts about this topic let me know. For our upcoming events, there will be no club run in October instead we will be heading off on our annual Safari this time to Gisborne, where we will be joining in with the Gisborne and other neighbouring branches for the weekend. Lesley and Malcolm Blair have put a huge effort into planning and coordinating this event. We are really looking forward to a carefree weekend away. If you

haven’t registered and want to come along maybe have a quite word in the organiser’s ear The reason I say carefree , is that by then we will have moved out of our house of 40 years and be camping in forty square meters of the shed, while our new house is been built nearby, Graham’s “collections” takes up the other one hundred and twenty square metres of the shed. As you can imagine there are endless lists of things to organise and decisions to make, including I guess an internet connection or else there will be no club captain’s report next month. November the 17th is the Homestead run, preliminary details are elsewhere in the MAG and in December we will be having a picnic lunch run, organised by Lyndsay and Barrie Browne. You will soon start to see advertising for the 2020 National Vintage Rally been coorganised by HBVCC and the CHB branches. Just a reminder about the Vero rally being held on 17>22 January 2021, so time to think seriously about attending as it’s virtually on our door step, COMING EVENTS: Upcoming events are: • Wednesday 2nd October 2019 –Mid week run meet at the club rooms and Committee night • Wednesday 9th October 2019 –Club Night • No kitchen this month as it falls on HB Anniversary Day Don’t forget if you have any ideas for run’s or interesting places to visit let me know. Looking forward to seeing you all at the next club night. 7

SEPTEMBER CLUB RUN// By Esther Smith

Thanks to Kevin Heyward, backed by Gaye for organising a run with a difference. We started from Havelock North with a good turnout of cars. Not only did the delightful spring weather encourage people to come out and join in, but also now that we have the means to email a reminder to members just prior to an event, this does help in jogging people’s memory. Anyway why else do we have these cars if we are not going to get out and enjoy using them. Our first stop was to the “Coffin Club” housed in the old netball pavilion at Windsor Park. Kevin and I had been discussing getting some club members to come along to talk to us at a club night, but been able to visit them insitu was a much better plan. Kevin was a bit worried about what people’s reaction would be, and I was also interested in their reactions. However it all went well, the club secretary talked about why the club was formed and how they continue to operate. It was interesting to see the various art works and personalising of the caskets, we were also shown the little boxes that members make and donate to parents of stillborn and miscarried babies, they were so beautiful and what a wonderful thoughtful gift to be able to give to someone in that situation. The club also helps with

October 2019

caskets for sudden deaths often with the family members getting involved to add their personal touches. Our next visit was to School Road and Jim Thorne’s amazing vehicle collection, bikes, bicycles, cars, trucks and lots of memorabilia and sooooo well organised and tidy. Heaps of interesting items to look at I am just glad it’s not me doing the dusting. Thanks to Jim for sharing it with us Then it was just around the corner to Kevin and Gaye’s house, we had a shared afternoon tea which I think people enjoy, so rather than sitting in a huddle chewing on a stale biscuit, you get to sample all the delightful goodies that others have bought along. Mention must be made here too of Kevin’s collection of Austin’s and other “interesting” items, another example of very well stocked and tidy sheds, but Kevin knew where everything was. Thanks to Kevin and Gaye for a great afternoon.


HBVCC HOMESTEAD RUN//

Sunday 17th November 2019 We are heading to Central Hawke’s Bay to a homestead that the club has never visited before. Then we will be off to Oruawharo Homestead near Takapau for afternoon tea and a tour of the house, the cost is $15pp. For the afternoon tea, I will need to know numbers attending prior to the event.

DOES YOUR SPEED WORK// By Barry Crump

Of all the skills demanded of a modern motorist none requires such deft touch as dealing with a terrific cop who flags you to the kerb or approaches your parked car. Scattered around Australia and New Zealand are many dab hands at this refined art. An expert shows how. They stopped in a small town for Sam to send a telegram to his “old hairpin” and returned to the truck to find a traffic cop standing by it, slapping the side of his leg with a ticket book. “Don’t like the look of this”, muttered Sam “just ignore him and if he says anything let me handle him.” Sam nodded to the officer and started climbing into the driver’s seat. “Hold it a minute there, will you,” said the cop. “Has this vehicle got a warrant of fitness?” “A warrant of fitness?” said Sam, looking surprised. “How the hell do you think a man could get a warrant for a thing like this?-no brakes, steering crook, doors flying open in all directions, tyres down to the canvas-and you ask us if we’ve got a warrant! “No we haven’t got a warrant.” “Are you aware of the law regarding warrants of fitness for motor vehicles?” “Officer”, said Sam “we’re had more tickets for this old girl than she could carry. And every fine puts us just that much further from getting ‘er done up. The money we’ve paid to you blokes would have bought me a new truck. Here we are struggling along out there in the backblocks eighty hours a week, October 2019

and all our money going to pay fines for the only enjoyment we can get out of life. A little trip to town once a month or so. We’ve gone hungry out there officer-living on the dog tucker-to pay the penalty for our little bit of harmless fun.” Sam waved an earnest arm towards a formidable expanse of mountainous bush country that wasn’t there. “You obviously haven’t made much effort to get the thing fixed up. It’s a menace to other road users. Look at it.” “A menace?” cried Sam “a menace! Do you know when we bought the old girl, officer, she had two rope tyres; she had one spoke of the steering wheel left; she had no windscreen, there wasn’t a sound board in her; she had two cracked pistons, no floor boards, no seats, one head light, leather big-end bearings, and she was going on one cylinder because all the valves were burnt out. She had fencing wire brake-rods and a piece of rope to work the throttle with because there was no accelerator. And you say we haven’t made much effort. Why young Bill here could tell you a thing or two about old Gertie. I’d like a quid for every mile he’s walked behind her with a post. “With a post?” “Yes officer, with a dirty big post! When we first got her every forward gear in her was shot to pieces. The only way to get her down a hill without harpooning something was to stick her in reverse and go down backwards. When she got going too fast I’d ’yell out and young Bill here would drop his post behind the wheels and get out of the way. You’ve got


no idea the work and expense we’ve put into this old bus to get her in the condition she’s in today, officer. And one day we hope to have her one of the tidiest little heaps in the district” For a moment jack thought the tremor in Sam’s voice was genuine. The traffic cop stopped slapping his leg with his ticket-book and looked at Sam with a frown that was trying hard not to be a grin. “We came to town today, officer,” continued Sam, to order a complete new set of brake linings and a wheel bearing, but it looks as though we’ll have to spend the money on another fine”. He turned away and leaned on a sagging mudguard, the very picture of a man who has just been confronted with defeat and ruin. “Look I don’t want to be too tough on you”, said the traffic cop. “I suppose you’ve got a drivers licence?” “Officer”, said Sam, turning to face him again. “A man who can navigate a machine like old Gertie here for eleven years without a single prang is qualified to drive anything on wheels. As a matter of fact I’ve been too ashamed to ask for one in case they laughed at me. And the spare few bobs I’ve scraped together from time to time have gone towards paying fines or some little thing to make Gertie a safer and more roadworthy machine”. He turned and fondly adjusted an ill-fitting bonnet clip.

believe this, but a week or two back we tried shoving a batten through a gap in the floor boards to slow the old girl up on the hills. The batten caught on a rock in the road and the other end flew out of Bill’s hand and went fair through the windscreen. We never did find the bit that had the sticker on it. We got this windscreen off a wrecker for thirty bob.” “I’ll tell you what I’ll do with you”, said the traffic officer, frowning sternly at Sam. “How far away do you live?” “Forty-six mile, officer” “Right I’ll give you temporary permission to drive the thing forty-six miles. If I see you in town with it again without a registration sticker, a warrant of fitness and a driver’s licence, I’ll put you and your Gertie off the road. Does your speedo work?” “Yes,” said Sam, proudly. “We’ve done ‘er up.” The officer took the speedometer reading, added forty-six miles, and wrote out a note saying Sam could drive that distance. “What’s your name?” “Harvey Wilson,” replied Sam.

“Okay okay,” said the officer. “How about your registration sticker. What happened to that?”

“They’re getting tough these days” said Sam as they drove away. “One time it was twice as easy. We’ll have to stop here and unscrew the speedo cable. Here, stick this note where it won’t get dirty, Jack. We’re likely to need it for a fair while yet. What was the name of the town anyway? We’ll have to steer clear of there in future. That cop likes his job a bit too much if you ask me. The kid of joker who shoots fantails for fun.

“Do you know, officer,” said Sam, “you won’t

Keep ‘er moving, Jack.” 19


HOOTERS// Ana @ Hooters Well Spring is definitely in full swing and we’ve seen some lovely days in the Bay. I love this time of year, it feels like Napier wakes up from a hibernation and everyone is full of the promise of summer and those beautiful balmy nights. The events are flooding in with the Harcourts Hawke’s Bay Arts Festival and FAWC (Our Food and Wine Classic festival) dominating October and November, along with events such as WOW (World of Wearable Arts) down in Wellington bringing in lots of overseas visitors that may very well drift their way up the country before returning home. Music events are gearing up with Church Road starting up their Summer Sessions and wineries announcing their musical line ups for the summer months. The start of season networking events are gearing up too. A great chance to see what everybody has been up to over the winter period and what wonderful offerings they have for this season. Everything just seems to have that feel of freshness, enthusiasm and just a great positive vibe! We all know the cruise ship season is fast approaching and Napier has been voted Number 1 Port for our visitors this year! We cannot be more thrilled! We like to think we might have a hand in that one ;-P Napier really does do an outstanding job. Huge thanks to the VCC for all their efforts along with all the Volunteers, STMS crew, Red Badge, Nimons and of course the Napier I-site and our fellow tour operators. We hear yearon-year just how well our City deals with the influx of visitors. Many of which return to visit us independently to spend longer in our

October 2019

stunning Region. Everyone involved deserves a pat on the back, well done! The Hooters team are certainly gearing up for what appears to be the busiest season so far, we’ve moved out of winter and into Spring and that means spring weddings and bright sunny days. Time to blow the cobwebs off the open tops and give the luxury sedans a bit of a break. We’ve got a few new drivers this season so you’ll see some new and some not so new faces out and about this year. Driver training is taking place as we speak, so if you see us out and about give us a friendly wave and we’ll give you a Hoot! No new purchases for this season, I know shock horror, we’ve managed to stop David’s addiction for now….. We do have a few changes taking place and that means we’ve got a few of the old gals up for sale if anyone is interested give us a call and come and view.


So yep that means we still have Steve with us this season, for a retiree he seems to be here as often as I am! Thank gosh he came on board and we haven’t scared him off yet! David is still away, last I heard he had just been to the Goodwood Revival so looking forward to hearing about his travels. The rest of the team are raring to get back to the full swing of summer where you can approach a roundabout on a cruise ship day and find a Hooters car on each turn. As we like to say we don’t really do ‘set tours’ just timing. It is entirely up to you where you want to go and what you want to visit, as long as our guests take off smiling and leave laughing then we’ve done our job. It truly is a pleasure to work in our industry, everyone is on holiday, quite often a trip of a lifetime and we have the honour of joining in their fun and at the end of the day the team all meet up and raise a glass to our day. It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it :-) The costume department is really gearing up although we are still lacking some larger sizes. If you do have any larger items that are no longer required we would love to give them a new home. Again a huge thanks to those that have already donated, much appreciated. The restoration projects are both coming along slowly and surely. Annie the Hupmobile is at Colourwood having some timber work repairs and the Studebaker is still erm, sitting in the garage waiting for Steve to get a break from the rest of the fleet to get back to it.

On that note the team are always looking for more part time drivers, so if you fancy joining the crew and showing our guests just why we love our piece of paradise, then give us a call pop in and have a chat with the team. Thank you for taking the time to read the Hooters antics, we appreciate all your support! Well that’s it for another month, be seeing you…
