Chairman’s Report For those of you who attended our AGM will recall Lawrence’s concerns over various aspects of the park development and proposals which he read out. Lawrence forwarded his letter containing his ideas and was well received. Chairman Kevin Andrews told the meeting that it was very early days and wanted Park societies to air their concerns and keep all societies informed of developments. It’s very important that this branch maintains a strong representative at Brayshaw Park committee meetings to ensure we have all the information. Sometime in the future we may call a meeting of members to get your views. John Larcombe is our representative on the Heritage Trust has said that the Trust has no intention of taking over the land and buildings. Your committee will be keeping an eye on this and taking an active part in the decision making. Sunday the 10th June saw a good number turn out for the run to Whites Bay. We all enjoyed a beautiful day and BBQ lunch, walking on the beach or sitting in the warm sun listening to Earl playing a couple of tunes on his harmonica for his 70th birthday. Thanks Earl for the entertainment. Your committee is again going to have a part in organising Daffodil Day on the 26th August for our local Cancer Society, so if you can help with an hour or two on the day please put your hand up. I have made a start on contacting people that were involved last year and so far all are keen to support us again, so lets make this another great day for us and the Cancer Society. Thank you Lincoln for removing shrubs etc from Harris Glade, this has opened it up and some of our ladies want to beautify the small garden area. This will look good when completed. To Rose and Earl, thank you for the ten chairs, this makes a good start on replacing the wooden ones. Thanks also to Barry and Oliver for the little jobs that keep the place in order.

Nice to see Chris settling into the secretaries position. VINTAGE MOTORING, Kelly 4


Club Captain’s Report The good news is, we have the shortest day behind us. While I missed the Whites Bay run, it sounds like it was a success with a perfect day weather wise and plenty of sausages and fa tails. The Navigation run was not so well attended, but there may have been a little confusion whether it was a motorbike run or a car run. Never the less, it was a great run, and some who participated saw new ground. Prize giving dinner was very well attended and the meal was excellent, no complaints. Trophies presented at Prizegiving: Whimp Trophy concours: Bernard Miller 1939 Ford V8

Mortimer Trophy runner up concours: Denny & Audrey Greer 1948 Morris Minor V.C.C. Outstanding Effort: Tony & Jen Smith 1928 Dodge

Coming up are the Snow Run on the 15th July and bowls on 26th July. You will need to bring a plate for bowls thank you. Jim Bailey, from the Pelorus mailboat, has offered us half price trips on the boat, for the duration of the winter. It's a great opportunity to visit places in the Sounds and see how the other half live. This is the same deal he offers to the Havelock community. No need to book ahead, just pick a day the weather suits.

Update from Your Social Convenor Well winter is upon us and it is nice to be sitting by the fire. It has been a quite month in the kitchen with our usual Wednesday morning teas and although it has been cold it is still nice to see between 50 and 60 come along to have their weekly yarn and tell the odd story. The weather was kind to us for our outing to Whites Bay, a very enjoyable relaxing day. Although it is cold to go out at night, about thirty-eight enjoyed our Pot Luck natter & noggin night, its amazing the great selection of food that is supplied. Thank you. The Mid Winter Xmas dinner at Armadillo's was well attended and we had a lovely meal, with the prize giving to finish the day off. Also we have our Daffodil Day on the 26th August and will again be supplying tea, coffee and food. Last year the donations of cakes etc. was amazing, we are hoping this year will be as good. Please mark this date on your calendar. Friday 27th July is Natter & Noggin night it is a movie night put on by Chris & Mac about their oversea’s motorcycle adventures. Our meal will be Ham Steak & Salad - $12.50pp. All welcome. Look after yourselves and Keep Warm, Dale

India, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia from your seat! The evening will consist of some video, photo’s & photo books and we will share some of our experiences with you. We specialise in classic motorcycle tours but in the past 3 years we have included jeeps and tours that aren’t so much about ‘adventure’ as about great food, appreciating culture and history. There’s something for everyone the young and the older... 9

From the Blokes in the Shed‌ I met John Dix for the first time this last month, we were chatting away while unloading a ute full of vintage Chev treasure that he'd donated to the club. He's not long restored a ‘20s Chev National and was clearing out his excess. He's been around in the club for donkey's. Thanks John, we hope to see more of you again. The restored shed is now lit up like the Crystal Palace, thanks to Maurice Creswell. The filling of the shed continues. Two young fella's called in a couple of Saturdays ago, from Christchurch on the way to Nelson delivering an oldish car. They were looking for vintage parts for a restoration. The enthusiasm and excitement was fair oozing from these boys, made me smile and think of times past. (seems to be a lot of reminiscing lately Earl) R. It was really nice to meet them. You will all probably know by now, that Ted Bade one of our shed stalwarts had a nasty fall from a ladder and did himself a mischief. He's been a bit black and blue with some bone damage, but his humor is still to the fore. Take care Ted, we're all thinking of you up here in the Shed. A big thank you to young Ben Habershon who has sorted out our forklift brakes, really appreciated Ben.

At last the container is now in the compound and Patchett's Green is all of a sudden looking tidier. The boys are levelling off the work site for grass sowing. Another good months trading, with parts coming and going at a steady pace, despite the inclement weather. Our alarm system has been giving a bit of grief lately. I only mention this because our member Mike Gray quickly sorted it out and fellow member Arthur Anderson donated a battery that was required. So once again members have come to the fore. Thank you, you two. Cheers The Major


Whites Bay Day Out Sunday 10th June 2018 Bob our Club Captain; you've done it again!! What a absolutely wonderful day out. After a week of terminal drizzly cloudy days, the weather cleared to a sunny, calm, warmish winter day with fifteen club vehicles and their cheerful crews headed for a cracker day at Whites Bay, lead by David Bool towing the Club BBQ - what an asset. (Both David and the BBQ!). We sat in a sheltered sunny grassed area and gossiped away till lunch was prepared on the BBQ. All plates were full, loads of enjoyable chatter and a harmonica played. Birthday wishes sung to Earl and Stewart. Then it was off for a stroll on the beach for various groups. Much reminiscences; drawing in the sand along with messages from the heart. Joyful memories of holidays at the beach with family and friends, a most enjoyable day out. Thanks to David and his assistants on the BBQ.

A Museum Update‌ There has been a bit of activity in the museum lately, we have got a new shelf for some more things to go out on display, plus the pit is now available for anyone to use and there is steps to make it easy to get in and out of, this is with a big Thank You to Oliver for building the shelf and steps and my painting skills. Also we have had a Fire pump dropped of by some kind person but have no information about it, so if anyone knows any history on it we would appreciate it. The Model A truck is having a bit of maintainance done on it with the motor having been taken out for some repairs. Also I would like to say a big Thank You to the blokes that give up their Wednesdays’ and Sunday afternoons to open up plus dust the vehicles and keep museum tidy. Bill


Motorcycle Notes National Motorcycle Rally Entry forms are now available from Carol at I have some at 6 Milford St or pick one up from the clubrooms on Wednesday mornings. Some entries have already been received. First entry was a keen local, well done. Local motorcycle members if you can do so get your entry in quickly if you can it will give us some working capital and take some of the pressure off Carol later when entries start arriving in bulk. Carol is fielding lots of email enquires including one seeking a billet which is something we had not anticipated. Any offers? Our thanks to the car owners who went on the navigation run to check out some of the rally routes. Comments were generally favourable, no one got lost and some constructive suggestions were made which we can act upon. We will require a sizable input from non-motorcycle members over the rally weekend so please offer your help if you can do so. The help offers so far is appreciated and we have been able to fill some positions of responsibility. Newsletter updates will appear on a regular basis over the next six months which is all the time we have left and still a lot to do. Trevor

Motorcycle News Garage runs always bring out good numbers and this one was no exception, first up a big thanks to Barry and Peter T for allowing us into their sheds. We all realise it’s not just a matter of throwing open the garage doors and letting everyone in for a look, shed cleaning, bike cleaning and making room in the shed for everyone requires a lot time and effort and then everything has to be put back again at the end of the day, so thanks guys, much appreciated. First up was Barry’s to look at his AJS late 1920’s restoration and Norton’s, Barry is doing what not many do these days starting with a pile of bits, tracking everything down that’s missing or having it made and doing it for 2 bikes at the same time. One bike is almost ready to fire into life and is being kept in original condition while the other is in the preassembly stage. While the AJSs are a work in progress the collection of awards Barry’s Norton’s have received speak for the high standard he keeps the Commandos and Dominator in while still clocking up the kilometres attending rallies each year. One thing about garage runs you always pick up some knew knowledge or tip and looking at the clutch plates that have had a multitude of new round corks inserted, several mused on where he had it done when in fact he had procured a bag full of corks and an ancient tool for inserting them and did it himself, well done. 15

After Barry’s it was off to Allan’s to have a look at his collection, access was arranged by Barry and Pete C and thanks to them we got to look at one of if not the best Triumph, BSA triple collections in the country, with over twenty bikes comprising of several different variants of restored triples with others awaiting restoration, interspersed amongst them were several other models of bikes, twins and singles. Many are of a very high standard of restoration and a credit to their owner, a collection of this size and quality doesn’t happen over night and must have taken a lot of effort to find, particularly the rarer models, one not so rare bike that aroused a bit of interest was Allan's wife’s innocuous little Honda CG110 with several there commenting that model was the first bike they owned, thrashed, or accidently threw down the road. After that it was smoko time at the next stop, thanks to Paula for putting that together and playing hostess. On a previous garage run we went to Steve and Mindy’s where Steve was working on a Norton, stripped of most engine internals and other fundamental pieces it was definitely a work in progress, but not anymore as it appeared for the first time on this run so well-done Steve. Also, out for the first time on a run was Glen Herkt’s latest restoration, it’s not Glens first bike restoration having done a very nice James previously and this one was of exceptionally high standard also, in fact it’s pretty bloody good. Many will remember the advent of the clip-on motor for bicycles some were good, some were adequate, others just added weight and fumes for no appreciable gain. Glen has done an impressive job of restoring a bike and cycle master engine and completed the run on it.

Sunday August 26th

Annual VCC of NZ Daffodil Day. Last year the Marl Branch vehicle display at Brayshaw Park raised more money for the Cancer Society than any other branch in the country to the extent our branch delegates were asked to explain at a National Executive meeting how “we done it”. Let’s maintain the momentum and do it again. We had a good turn out of motorcycles last year, we may increase it this year by inviting a friend with an interesting modern machine. It does not have to be VCC eligible.

Results from Last Months ROSCO TRIAL in Reefton Gordon Dacombe was first in both the short wheel base and 1st overall with 111 points. Local Peter Thwaites was 1st in the long wheel based class with 65 points.

The next event is SUNDAY 19TH AUGUST in Marlborough, refer to the information on the next page. Good for a day out and a laugh! See you there!
