Club Captains Report The few hot days this month has given drivers an incentive to get out and about in their cars. While on the road myself, l have seen a number of lovely vehicles, both old , and not so old. But lovely to see owners making the most of sunny weekends. One group of Vintage Car Club members who were not so lucky with the weather were the group of intrepid travellers from the North Shore, travelling down the lsland to the Deep South. Our club had the pleasure of their company for afternoon tea on the 14th of last month. What a lovely bunch of people they were. We did enjoy entertaining them, and a big thank you to those who provided afternoon tea, and helped to make their visit enjoyable. Think Keith was pleased to do some business in the spare parts shed! Teapot rally, run by Oamaru this year, was held on a beautiful spring day, and travelled through some picturesque country. Thank you Oamaru, for a lovely run, great afternoon tea, and company. Sorry you didn’t keep the teapot, always next year. The run to Mt Atkin will have been and gone by the time this report comes out, unless it is wet, when it will be on the 24th of Nov.

Winners of the Teapot Rally from Waimate Pete & Annie

I hope you were able to view the display of OLD vintage cars on the 19th of last month at Caroline Bay. Beautiful shiny vehicles and a lovely sunny day made for a great Event. Barry will have a few photos of the various events for you all to see what you missed. The end of the year is nigh, and I still haven’t planned anything for our end of year get together! Sorry, will try to come up with a date and an event. Keep safe on the roads. Regards Suzanne

Ready to Go for the Teapot Rally

PS. The teapot was won by our new members Pete and Annie. Afraid Barry drove too fast, or too slow not sure which!!

The Mt Aitken Run due to be held on the 10th November due to rain has been has been postponed to the 24th November
