The opening run with Ashburton is on 4th Sept. Further info is in this Tri RememberCar. we are looking for speakers for our Noggin Nights. If you know of someone but are too shy to ask them, then talk to a committee member and we will take it from there. We need a few people to be the welcoming person for new members that arrive at our clubrooms. It is most embarrassing to ask at a Noggin for someone to show a newcomer around, and not one person offers. That is appalling. If we have several names then you are not committed to attend every Noggin. Please consider doing this.

There is also a big range of car handbooks as supplied with new vehicles, not all will be at the Swap Meet. If anyone wants one for their car. Inquire!

Chevrolet 1942, Chev 1.5 ton truck also 1942 Ford: Anglia, Cortina Mk 2, Mk3, Mk4

Rover Triumph20002000 Mk 1 Vauxhall: Model E and Bedford CA, Viva HB, Velox, Wyvern. There will also be a large range of general motoring books.

Think back to when you first came to the club, who showed you around, or who made an effort. It is a poor club who doesn't make a newcomer feel Thewelcome.motoring season is coming up so get your cars and yourselves sorted and enjoy likeminded people for some fun days out. Your club captains put a lot of effort into organising rallies for you. Don't let them or you club down. Happy motoring Alistair.

Notes from the Library September 2022

Greetings from your Chairman Alistair. Colin Hawke and myself attended the AGM in Auckland on your behalf. Some-thing that came out of it was the Incorporated Societies Act 2022, which hasn't been updated since 1908. It will need to be gone through very thoroughly with the National Office, then sent to Branches for adopting. It has been a long time coming. Another discussion was on the membership long service Awards. As expected the Executive have decided that there may need to be adjustments made as to how these are to be awarded in the future. At present the Club has awarded 424 x 50 year badges with 25 in progress not including the 7 for our branch. 66 x 60 year Badges, 837 x 25 year badges, and 547 x 35 year badges. The VIC cards are going to be online, including the photo of the vehicle, so this will be a massive learning curve for me and the other inspection officWe'veers. had our garage raid and thanks to Ashley and his team for making the day run smoothly. Thanks to all those who offered their help for the Daffodil Deliveries, and you will all be aware that the Daffodil Day Car Rally for Cancer will take place on the 28th. We would appreciate a lot of support for this well worthwhile cause.

Things have been ticking over pretty well in the Library over the last few months although I have only been putting in relatively intermittent appearances. It’s pleasing to note that members are still using the Library even though I haven’t been to a Noggin night for some Recenttime. arrivals include 3 motor racing books. 2 cover Aussie legends Mark Scaife and Alan Moffat and the other US motor racing great Richard Petty. Thanks again to Phil O’Brien who has been a generous donor to the Library in the past. I have continued work on dealing with newspaper clippings etc which have been given to us over the years. Currently I am still filling up the clearbook which had been partly completed before arriving in the Library but there’s a few pages to fill up yet. This will be an ongoing exercise for a quite a while. Duplicate holdings have built up and I will have a stall at the Swap Meet again to try and move on some of it, particularly the duplicate magazines which will be offered free. Here is a list of the workshop manuals, I intend to take. Please get in touch with me if there is one you want before they go on general sale. $5 per manual. (Bargain price!)

The third “shed” was that of Colin and Donald White’s at Albury where we saw a large collection of ModelAFords plus a 1930 Buick & 1918 Buick Roadster plus an original 1913 Model T.

First was Don Pelvin’s collection of Mainly WW2 Vehicles but there was a 1908 Lacre Truck configured to look like a WW 1 truck & a 1914Albion Truck which will bodied to look like an period ambulance plus a Scorpion light tank powered by a Jaguar XK4.2 engine.AWW2 Daimler Scout Car is nearing Luckilycompletion.therain cleared so the visit to Dave Diamond’s workshop , sheds & yard went well despite being wet under foot. Lots to take in and see.

The fourth shed was Peter Cooke’collection atAshwick , because the recent heavy rains, access was somewhat water logged but going by the photo’s the shed had plenty worth Iseeing.havehad lots of positive comments on the day from the other club’s with oneAshburton member saying today that it was the best he had ever been on. I’m sorry that more SC Branch members didn’t come, it will be 4 years until the next local one so who knows where we will be Ashleythen. Milliken (Some Photo’s of the day on Pages 22 & 23)

Also a few more throughout the day as needed.

Evelyn, Shona Weir & I went up toAlbury the Thursday before to set up the tables, & double check the gear needed.

AHUGE thanks to everybody that helped make the day successful.

The hall was cleaned up & gear including the dirty dishes and cutlery loaded by 2 -15 pm. Evelyn & I did the dishes on Sunday morning at the Clubrooms.

Report on SCVCC Garage Raid held on Saturday August 6th 2022 I got the idea for this garage raid after seeing Don Pelvin’s collection of Military vehicles at the Sth Canterbury Traction Engine & Machinery Club”s open day earlier this year . I was also aware that Donald White was keen for us to pay him a visit, Bill Weir had a word or two with Dave Diamond, Peter Cooke came on board and it was all on.

Evelyn organised the food for the event, On the day we had Evelyn, Shona, Marion Foster in the kitchen with myself doing the heavy lifting, draining the spuds & vege’s, Bill Weir collected the lunch tickets & helped stack chairs afterwards.

Evelyn & I thought theAlbury hall was well located & went up to visit it with custodian Debbie Brown, we were pleased with what we saw .The hall is undergoing an upgrade but not all the equipment that we needed was on hand yet so we needed to take our own crockery, cutlery, large pots, pie warmer, large hot water urn up there as well as the food.

We are celebrating 100 years of Steam Locomotive AB699 on the Sunday 25th September 2022. This is South Canterbury Anniversary weekend. I am asking if your club would like to be involved with a static display? This will be a huge event and a good opportunity to show your cars.

On an overcast day, fourteen cars left the club rooms for the final run for this year. We travelled via SH1 and Otipua Rd, through the Scenic Reserve where there was still plenty of autumn colour. Turning right then left into Gleniti Rd, we turned right into Pages Rd, left onto Kellands Hill, right at Cartwright Rd and turned left onto SH8. Turning into Rolling Ridges Rd we turned into Fraser, Brockley and Hadlow Rds. Plenty of water on the paddocks and the verges on the roads were very wet and cut up owing to farm movements. We then travelled along several roads, some with great views of the harbour and sea and then continued via Beaconsfield Rd back to the club rooms for afternoon tea and a natter. Thank you to Pat & Rodney for arranging an interesting run. Thank you to all those who arranged runs for this NOTE:season. Due to swap meet commitments there will be no run in September.
