Chairman's Chat It has been a very busy month and it was a pleasure to be able to help as ‘Tail end Charlie’ at the annual Model T Ford Club Rally in Central Hawke's Bay. What a very friendly group of people who have a great time driving these Ford Ts around. John and Margaret Cleland and their group of helpers did a wonderful job in showing the visitors around CHB, with visits to Norsewood, The Black Dog Tavern, a visit to the eels and the dinner at the Gentlemen's club with entertainment brought in for the occasion which brought the day to an end. The next day a short run to the Patangata Hotel for brunch brought the weekend to a close. The Ford T members want to come back again next year. Our next run was put on by John and Shirley Foot who took us out to "Smedly Station "which is a farm for training cadets in all farming skills. It started back in the 1920's and takes 11 boys each year for over a 2 year period, and at the end of their 2 years period, every aspect of farming has been covered. These cadets are very sort after. Owing to the very wet month we could not drive through the station and had to go back via the main roads to get to the airfield on the other side of the farm. A great view of Hawke's Bay can be seen from the far end of the airfield. We then travelled across the road to John and Shirley Foot's Nieces place for lunch in the gardens. We were then treated to a talk on wood graining and a practical demonstration of wood graining on metal, we then took a look at the breeding of Burmese Cats. lt is amazing the different trade's skills people in the area have. My three year term as chairman is now coming to an end and it is pleasing to advise you that we have a nomination and seconder for Lynn Cross as our new chairman. Lynn has been the President of Waipukurau Jaycees and also a Jaycee Regional Governor for Hawke's Bay and is also involved with other organizations so has lots of experience. The proposed visit to Norsewood, Black Dog Tavern and the eels has had a slight change of plan as the Targa Rally is using some of the roads that have been planned. However it is still with a few changes. The annual Night Rally is in the early planning stages and is now on the 22nd of July 2O17 Saturday night, so keep this date free. I had to change the date due to a lodge conference in Wellington. We had 65 people at the last night rally which caused some problems especially when we have a closing date and no late entries will be accepted after Monday 17th July 2O17. Last year people were ringing on the morning of the event to enter, NOT ON. The hotel and cafe owners who are supplying soup and buns etc and the final dinner need time to get supplies in. Over the past five years the AGM has been held at the fire station but this year a change of venue had to be found and now will be held at Skinny Mulligans Waipawa, the only nomination at this stage for next year is Lynn Cross as chairman. Well that's all for this month and look forward to seeing you out and about.

Rod’s Rattling's We had an interesting run with John and Shirley Foot out to Smedley and later to their niece, Christine’s, property in early April. It was great to hear the run-down on Smedley Station and what they do training our future farmers and rural industry type folk. I had been there before some years ago, but the talk we received from the manager about the property and what they do with their young students was quite an eye-opener. These guys go through the place and make many life-long friends, and their training is a badge of influence for their later employment in their rural careers. Lunch was had on the lawn at Christine’s home with her husband Chris. We enjoyed the company and super fine weather, before we got to look at what Chris does in his shed. Wow! That is certainly some man cave! And then there are other sheds with more stuff to view. Who would have thought this type of business could be run successfully so far from town? Our run in May has hit a couple of “pot-holes” for Bruce as the route he was planning to take us on would have us tangled up with the “Targa Rally” which is being run the same day in the Ormondville area. Maybe we will get to see some of the “Targa” cars on our cruise. The other event our branch could support is the swap meeting at Meeanee on 7 th May. There will be a celebration of things “Model T”, and several of our branch members have been invited to be there with their cars. If you are supporting this event with your Ford T, get in touch with me as I am supposed to be getting some entry tickets to distribute. Think about our AGM coming up in June. If you would like to influence the running of the branch and can contribute in some way, let a committee member know so they can tell you about what responsibilities you would have. It is not too onerous, and can be quite a lot of fun. Additionally, you can make new friends from all over New Zealand as several of us have done over the years. I would like to put on a “Garage/Garden Raid” for our June run and have a couple of folk who have suggested places/sheds to go to, and also who have volunteered to host a visit by our members. I need to have another three or four of our members who may have something interesting in their back yard the other folk from the branch could have interest in. Occasionally someone with a restoration can be helped along the way when someone else sees a part that is required, and “Lo and Behold”, they have one stacked up in the chook-house at home. Have a safe month on the roads.

North Island National Easter Rally held in Auckland 2017 — by Mya Wairau Sometime ago Koro asked me if I wanted to go to Auckland for the Easter Rally, and after some serious thinking it was all go. We polished the car, I was shown how to jack the car up and change a wheel and I even had to get under the car to check the oil in the gearbox which it needed and I had to put some oil in as well.

Mya Wairau (Left of picture, Grand Daughter of Bruce Poole far right) and Vickie Harding Centre of picture

Koro picked me up at 1.00pm and we put the new trunk on the rear carrier, loaded up the car and left Waipukurau at 3.45pm with the threat of the Cyclone that was coming our way. It rained all the way to Taupo which was our first nights destination. After dinner we left to go to our cabin at the Motor Camp, while on our way Koro was pulled up by a police officer for not having his lights on. The policeman said you were not speeding but our lights were not on, so with the light switch pulled out and the lights were now on away we went. During the night the storm moved on and the morning dawned with clouds and some blue sky. We called in to see some of Koros old friends John and Jean Bayley in Matamata and then by various roads we reached our motel in Auckland, unpacked and drove around to the Auckland VCC Club rooms to sign in. The meal that night was at the club rooms and the next morning the rally started at Drury so an early start was needed to get there for rally briefing at 9.00am. With all the rain over the past few weeks, trees down and road closers several rallies had to be plotted. We finally ended up at Maranda on the east coast road for lunch at a Regional Park. The Gymkana was to be held on the Sunday morning but this was held on a small country road which I did very well in the tasks that I was giving (Koro not so good). The Rally finished back at Drury and then back to the motel. ln all the years l've been going to rallies this would've been the best place l've stayed in. The next day the Sunday run left from the club rooms and we went out to Clevedon to visit a collection of cars, all housed in a big shed and with the push of a button all 24 doors went up at once to display a collection of Rolls Royces and Bentleys, ranging from a 1921 Silver Ghost to the latest Rolls Royces and Bentleys. The owning gave a talk on each car and all present were very impressed. We had lunch at Clevedon and it was a free afternoon with dinner being held at the Remurewa CT Club. After a very nice meal they had the drawing of the raffles and then the prize giving. Diane and Geoff Quarrie got third place in the slow vintage class, John and Shirley were second in the post 50 class and low in behold we got first in people's choice. I had to go up and hold onto the large silver platter which had to be handed back. I went shopping on Monday morning and into the early afternoon we left Auckland and got back to Waipukurau at 9.15pm after a very wet trip from Taupo. A very good and well run Rally and a big Thank you to the Auckland Branch.

National Model A Rally held in Hawke’s Bay — April 2017 —

One beautiful day over Easter weekend Jenny and I decided to take my little gem for an outing over to Napier and “look what we found”! Could not have been planned better, it was the National Model A Rally, and here they were, all lined up for public viewing on the Marine Parade’s grassed area. And of course the CHB branch had members participating. Overall there were 142 vehicles registered for this years Rally.
