From the Editor Well, my last report for the year and on the last page as well, as they say, be er last than never!! It has been an interes ng year to say the least, I started with a trip overseas in May last year and have finished with a marvellous weekend in Taranaki, touring round our iconic Maunga. Unfortunately due to a moment of brain fade we took an unplanned detour on the morning run which meant we reached the lunch stop at the tail of the field. However a good day overall culmina ng in a splendid Dinner and Prizegiving at the Plymouth Interna onal on the Saturday evening. Great to see Colin Johnston’s service to the Branch recognised by his peers with the awarding of his 50 Year Badge. An update on the 2021 Rally was presented by Greg Terrill, so keep the dates,17– 22 JANUARY 2021 IN YOUR DIARY!! By the me you read this newsle er our A G M will be history and there will possibly be a new line up in the commi ee to run your Branch, that will be reported in the next Topical Torque, due out June 20. Hope to see you there, or maybe at an up coming run in the mean me take care and keep to the le ! Jim - Editor
