July 2018 The Annual Meeting saw 20 members attend on a cool winter’s night. Robin McCall presented his Annual Report thanking everyone for all their efforts to keep the Club running smoothly. All Office Bearers and Committee remain unchanged and we look forward to your continued support and enjoyment of the Club. Sympathies had been sent to the Campbell family on the passing of Stuart. The 2 National Remits were discussed at length and explained by Gary to give a better understanding of the 30 year rule for vehicles. National Veteran Rally will be held in Nelson 16-18 November 2018.
Wednesday Run Report Neville King organised the run this month. 14 vehicles with 34 people was a good turnout for the Clarksville, Waitahuna to Greenfield drive. Light rain made the gravel section of Waitahuna West Road very sticky however the view was terrific, the high point of this road is 1056ft. Cheese Rolls and hot drinks beside the fire ended the afternoon at the Greenfield Tavern. Wednesday Run 1st August 55th Run having started in August 2013 – hard to believe – oh how time flies! Meet at the Clubrooms at 1 p.m. for a run and afternoon tea will be at Peggydale Cafe. Night Trial Report Delicious food, great company, interesting run, more food, what a way to spend an evening at your local Club. A small group enjoyed the evening this year.
