C h a ir m a n ’s C h a tter Hi All,

Last month seems to be a bit of a blur! Easter Rally was a lot of work, but I think a great success blessed with amazing weather. From the feedback we received, participants certainly enjoyed their weekend and the organisers did the Waikato Veteran & Vintage Car Club proud with what they delivered. I was also privileged to drop in at a function at the Hamilton Gardens where Reece and Sue were addressing an audience with an update on the KM Ford. Reece took the time to explain the significance of the early motor vehicle on society and Sue demonstrated what to wear to a garden party pre-1910, or, far more fascinating, what a lady wore underneath what you would see at such an occasion. I was humbled by their professionalism and approach on behalf of our Club and I came to realise we represent a lot more than just our cars. My Chairpersons role is winding down and we need fresh ideas and people on committee for our AGM. I think it’s time to re-exam what we do and the way we do it and the Club will need a more accommodating and inclusive person than myself to make change. I am too used to being a committee of one! Cheers.

Secretary’s Report Again, I have had very little significant in this month.

Entry forms available –

3rd June Wanganui’s Annual Rally Entries close 24th May

Other events

10th May South Hamilton Bunnings, Kahikatea Drive, Hamilton, are having a Mothers’ Day Family Night 5.30 – 7.30pm community event and have requested a few vehicles. Phone Ian Patton for more details, or just show up on the evening. We have recently been donated a significant collection of photographs of the 1980 International Rotorua Rally, held 24th February to 8th March 1980. They are an outstanding collection of a professional quality, and an exhaustive illustration of the rally (1902 photographs in all). Being recognised as a valuable resource for the VCC of NZ, Kathryn Parsons, our archivist, forwarded them to the National Office, Christchurch where Don Miller, National Archivist, scanned them and reproduced them in DVD form. We are fortunate to have received back 2 copies of the DVD, one for our archives, and the other will be available for our members to borrow. Once processed it will be available for borrowing. Do think carefully who you would like to run the branch from now onwards, as there are to be major changes in the Committee. Don’t be shy about putting your name forward and becoming involved. Being on the committee can be enormously rewarding, giving you an opportunity to see the inner workings of the Branch and contributing to its future direction. That’s all for this month, folks. Please take care on the roads.


Letter to the Editor I went to the Waikato Hospital the other day. Nobody told me there was a Vintage Car Club meeting on there. Thanks Barrie Grant


C lu b C a p t a in Well we had our first frost of winter the other morning; you know that funny white cold stuff on the windscreen and the fence. Winter is coming, so get out the gloves, scarves, and hats. Cold or not our club runs will continue, there is quite a lot coming up with a good variety of events. On the 20th May Theo De Leeuw is organising another Shed Raid, these are proving very popular and I am sure that this one will be no different. See the advert in the Venture and we will see you there. Then on the 27th May we have our Rally Training Day, this year it is being taken by Joe Bruntlett, a very experienced ralliest and a past Branch Club Captain, If you are new to rallying, a bit unsure of how to follow straight line navigation or rally instructions, or just need a refresher course then come along and all will be explained. See the advert in the Venture and turn up, Modern cars are most welcome. Then we move onto June, the 2nd & 3rd June is Queens Birthday Weekend. This is when our Double Fifty Rally is held. This is our premier event of the year and is always a lot of fun. Wayne and Tracy Hayward are this year’s plotters. They are young and enthusiastic so let’s all get behind them and support this event. For newer members the Double Fifty (50/50) means, 50 miles in the morning and 50 miles in the afternoon. The theme this year is “In the 60’s” to celebrate the 60 year celebration of our branch. So mark that date on your calendar, fill out the entry form, and polish your car. I would encourage all our members to attend this year’s AGM, firstly to vote for the people you want to manage your club over the next 12 months, and secondly to have some input into next year’s programme of events. We will be looking for some input into the type of events that you as members want. It could be Rallies, Visits to Places of Interest, Shed Raids, Weekend Tours, Speed Events, Car Shows or Picnics just to name a few. We also can’t forget our Wednesday Wanders, these are proving popular and obviously fulfil a need for some of our members. Remember it is your club and it needs your input to function as a group. So become involved and trust me you will enjoy it. GRAHAM PATE. 6

Motorcycle MOTOR CYCLE Our 25th Anniversary Mooloo Meander was a great success on all fronts with 65 bikes lined up on Saturday ready to ride off on the run that Bob had expertly plotted, see Bob’s report in this Venture. We cannot run this event without a lot of help and I would like to thanks you all. Bob for plotting the run and I know he was ably assisted by Jillian who also put together the place mats for the Saturday dinner from past Mooloo photos, these were keenly looked at by all and a good number were taken home. Trish who typed the list of entrants etc and also towed the Club Trailer to the lunch stop and assisted with the lunches. The backup team is also a very important and this was done by Graham and Pat. As Saturday night was a special affair at the Avantidome we needed to have some table decoration, Ann, Jane and Margret did a great job and also help clear up after most people had left and again a number of the decoration were taken. I know there were others who helped so thanks and also to the riders, who without you, we do not have a rally.

Ladies Rally – Diamonds are Forever Rae Guard – First Time Navigator On Sunday, 4th March at 945am we all met at the Enchanted Café at Tirau. It was so lovely getting there and meeting all the ladies dressed in their finest for the day. Speaking of which the winners of the Best Dressed for the day were Glenys Braddock and Liz Yorston who where driving a 1969 Jaguar. We had a lovely morning tea of scones and muffins, rather delicious and definitely glad not to have missed it. Being my very first rally, I was very unsure of what to expect, but golly gosh they all made me feel so welcome. Especially Dianne Porteous and Lorraine Cossey who invited me to join them in the Porteous’ 1957 Chev, even though we didn’t get a placing we had every so much fun and I appreciate the experience and laughs they shared with me. Right onwards and more about the rally, there were 10 car entrants and 22 ladies who participated and off we set at 1030’ish from Tirau in all our glory and the gems we have the privilege of driving in. There were not any silent markers, but questions and a surprise question when we got to the end. There was so much more before the end though. We had a lunch stop at the Matamata RSA, where we refuelled ourselves and had the pleasure of being introduced to Jamberry Nails and Accessories, what a delight to discover to treat ourselves with. It was wonderful journey of discovery and fantastic adventuring down new roads to our secret rendezvous that the ‘route plotters’ had laid out for us. The rural setting was breathtaking and it was wonderful that we had such a bright sunny day to enjoy it all. Once we had to depart and tear ourselves away from this we went to discover Infused with Nature and hosted by the lovely Pauline. The products are beneficial to delicate or damaged skin and mature complexions. Natural ingredients such as calendula infused oil, carrot oil, cocoa butter and shea butter are used in order to moisturise and soothe the skin. After our visit we made our way back to the clubrooms in Cambridge where we enjoyed an afternoon tea organised by a few well chosen men… or perhaps they were drafted in to do so. Our thanks go to them as was lovely to have a refreshing cup of tea and some warm waffles, drizzled in maple syrup. Fines for the day: Howard Porteous & Lex Soepnel for going AWOL from Marshall Duty Best Dressed for the day: Glenys Braddock and Liz Yorston Winners for the day: Jillian Hayton & Pat Holmes #6 driving a 1985 BMW 8

Glenys touch's up on her filing skills. Turns out that it helped in the quest for “Best Dressed “ on the day.

So many instructions!!!! Some of Ladies preparing to start the Rally.

25TH MOOLOO MEANDER – by Bob Hayton Twenty five years is a long time to keep an event running with ever increasing interest. So this year seemed a like a good time to celebrate a significant achievement on the part of the Branch and to honour the foresight of the people who first set the Mooloo Meander motorcycle rally on it’s very successful way. Stick with the time proven successful format but give a little twist to ensure people remember that there was something special about the event this year, so the following concept was adopted. Let’s have Friday’s friendly welcome evening at a local hostelry – nothing more suitable in town than the Prince Albert is there, with a shared meal and lots of friendships renewed. Plot a real sort of meandering Mooloo route, and have the prize-giving dinner somewhere special too. Well, as we all know, motorcycling started from it’s bicycling roots, so what could be more appropriate than going to dinner at the newly built Avantidrome to house the anticipated larger than normal attendance. Even the very name of the event was an inspiration which has stood the test of time, so meandering we would go for the next 25 years, in sunshine, rain, hail, fog, wind and every possible combination to a great variety of different locations around the region. But where to go this year, with a variation to suit the occasion? A suggestion from Alan Sharp brought the answer: ‘Anthony at Ngahinapouri rebuilds bigger engines than those guys will ever have seen’. He was right too – 1,000kW V16 motors running on rubbish tip methane gas to power electric generators impressed even the diehard engine experts amongst us during our lunch stop. But we get ahead of the action here. Most of our out-of-town visitors came along for a meet’ngreet at the Prince Albert, leaving time for us to greet the rest of the largest ever entry of 65 riders in the clubrooms car park the next morning. Along with all his other organising tasks, Peter had arranged some great weather for the morning get-together and H&S briefing – ‘Motorcycling is Good for Your Health, if You Ride Safely’ sort of puts it in a nutshell! Then the ‘off’ on the 100 mile run through a strangely verdant Waikato autumn countryside, stopping for a break at Kihikihi to inspect the new mail-order business and shop premises of Motozone. Resuming along Tokanui and Kakepuku lanes to pass through Pirongia and finally to Ngahinapouri, riders made their lunch stop with A&M Specialist Engineering Ltd at their pleasant rural property in Reid Road. Having been asked at Briefing not to ride in large groups, the sight of 25 bikes all arriving at the lunch destination in one long continuous line brought forth the explanation, ‘A line is not really a group, is it’. Ah well, as organiser you can but try! Despite the ‘Couldn’t go wrong’ clear instructions, we hear entrants found a variety of different ways of reaching this midjourney destination. Here they were able to enjoy a substantial lunch and very informative talk on rubbish tips together with their various technical accoutrements, by widely experienced company owner Anthony Steiner. There were engines, lots of samples, drawings and pictures to look at too. With a light shower beckoning from the west, riders seemed keen to head east and find their way by even more meandering back to the clubrooms at Cambridge. Despite some rather recalcitrant warm engine starting after lunch, only one machine got scooped up by Back-ups Graham and Pat Holmes, and that was hardly an oldie. By contrast, with 95 summers under it’s drive belt, Neville Olsen’s BSA was the most ancient machine there and would prove it’s vigour splendidly in completing the course of yet another Mooloo Meander.


At dinner, our Chairman Ian Patton welcomed visitors and then formally thanked the Guests of Honour as instigators of the ‘Mooloo’, Kelvin & Christine Davis and Janice Diez, with son Sam deputising for his father Les who was unavoidably detained. Prize-giving saw us not only well fed, but entertained by guest speaker Martin van Tiel describing his background in pyrotechnics, explosives, rocketry and anything thing else that goes off with a bang! Prizes were quite well spread around, with Overall Winner and Best Performed Waikato rider being Jon Turney on the nicely restored 1927 Indian. Jon will, I’m sure, have just as much fun as I did when plotting the 26 th Mooloo Meander for the same time next year. Many thanks are due to all the people who helped in setting up and running the event as well as the celebratory dinner in one way or another, to put yet another feather in the VCC Waikato Branch cap .


2018 North Island National Easter Rally. The 2018 North Island Easter Rally was awarded to Waikato Branch three years ago at the National VCC AGM. I put my hand up to organise it and formed a committee to help. From the first meeting the Rally Committee was in tune with what I had in mind, although this didn’t stop discussions on some of the finer points and we fell proud of what we finally delivered. The first challenge of organising a National Event in the Waikato is to consider the history of past international and national events that have been held here. All as good if not better than any others held elsewhere, and therefore there are expectations when new events are organised. Fortunately, we have some of the best roads, scenery and branch members who are willing to help whenever asked. The second challenge is to guess at how many entrants do we expect. A few years ago, 100 plus entrants would have been the norm, however recent history has told us that numbers have decreased dramatically and as a result we budgeted on 40 entrants. The third challenge is how do we make this interesting, that is, not just a repeat of what has been occurring over recent times. The fourth challenge is that this event has to live up to entrants’ expectations. Rally Day 1 We decided to provide a bit of fun to start off with, and introduced a twilight run on Friday evening. This needed to be short and sharp and what better than to re-use a route that Ivan and Alison Stevens used for a night rally several years ago. Very simple instructions were the order of the day. Leave the club rooms and keep left. About 40 minutes later you arrive back to the clubrooms and if you were lucky you would have seen Gordon Dearlove and myself in rabbit suits giving away Easter eggs en route. The night finished with a build a burger meal courtesy of the McInally family and helpers. Day one over, no hiccups and everyone happy and well fed. Rally Day 2 We had decided on three different rally routes, mainly so we didn’t end up with a procession of vehicles following each other. Each rally started from a different direction from the club rooms and had to meet at Tatuanui hall for lunch, go into 24

Morrinsville town centre for the cow activity and finish at the clubrooms by 4.30. Brent Terrill with a little help from Gaynor and me plotted the long run for post war, post 60 and post 80 vehicles. This was the biggest group and the longest run. This route began with a run through the new housing estate in Alan Livingston Drive before heading through Cambridge towards Te Awamutu and diving across Roto-o Rangi, around the Norwegian, Kairangi road loop and back toward Cambridge before crossing Karapiro Dam. Graham and Marcia Pate plotted the medium route for fast vintage and post vintage vehicles. They left the clubrooms and headed toward French Pass and up to Whitehall, where with no collusion from the plotters, followed some of the long route up to and past Hobbiton. The two routes did leave each other and come together at various points with the medium route going into Matamata to pass the i-site centre, then both routes continued onto Tatuanui, again overlapping and crisscrossing along the way. Gaynor and I plotted the short route for veteran and slow vintage vehicles. As we aimed to keep this reasonably flat and not too long, the cars left the club rooms and ventured out to Zig Zag Rd, Fencourt Rd and Scotsman’s Valley to take us to Tatuanui. Lunch stop and everyone seemed happy, the sun was shining, and the Tatuanui School PTA provided a magnificent paper bag for those who had ordered it. After lunch everyone headed into Morrinsville for a fun activity. Jan and Gordon Dearlove had participated in an event here previously, matching the town’s cows with specific phrases. Jan and Gordon modified this to suit the time we had and this provided all entrants with good chance to stretch the legs and have a bit of fun, although some took it very seriously. From there each of the runs headed back to our clubrooms at Cambridge via separate routes. Day two nearly over but not quite. The Rally Committee had some long discussions as to what we would do on Saturday night, then Jenny and Ian Patton suggested the Oasis Hideaway. We asked, “What’s that? where is it?” as they were the only ones who knew about it. It’s open on Sundays, so Gaynor and I went and had a look, wow what a surprise. This will do, never seen anything like this before. Jenny and Ian were asked to look after this, to organise the entertainment. Ian knew Paul Trenwith and he was booked. Fast forward, the numbers attending certainly filled the venue, the food was simple and tasty, the music even better, and the venue was terrific. Towards the end of the evening with only a few hardy ones remaining, some hidden branch talent emerged as Anja Nordell showed prowess with Greek dancing and Bryan Cossey not to be outdone, played the spoons very competently, but declined to join the band when invited. 25

Rally Day three. This proved to be one of the most difficult days to plan and we had two or three different ideas before finally settling on the Cambridge historic homes and Hamilton Gardens tour. Many thanks to the expertise of Kathryn Parsons, and to Jenny and Ian and Bronya and Hugh for making this day happen. The prize giving evening. Well, Gail of Tamahere, provided a great venue and food, Paul Trenwith and friends provided great music and Bronya and Hugh did a superb job of organsing this evening. Graham Pate was MC for the night and our VCC North Island Club Captain, Kaaren Smylie and husband Jim presented the prizes. Oh yes, how could we forget the spot prize giveaways of one or two packets of hot cross buns and Easter eggs. Gaynor and I enjoyed leading this event, the Rally Committee did a marvellous job and many thanks to all of the marshals and others who helped. These events are not possible without all of those who assist in the background. We trust the entrants enjoyed the rally also. Grateful thanks must go to our major sponsors VERO and Radius Healthcare and also to Dent Magician and Aspect Environmental Lining for their contributions. Finally there are a couple of points I would like to make. Generally events such as these are suffering from a drop in numbers. If we want to retain these events we need to support and attend them, as the low entry makes it hard financially. On that note, and all VCC event organisers would have be in the same position, there is a financial cost that organisers incur that is not recoverable. In this instance I have kept a conservative tally of the unclaimed expenses that Bronya, Hugh, Jan Gordon, Marcia, Graham Gaynor, Brent and myself incurred. The total so far is $5800.00 and would equate to an additional $100.00 approximately to each entry for this rally if the true costs were considered. Considerable sponsorship also allowed us to keep entry costs down and to subsidise the prize-giving dinner for entrants. While none of us are complaining about this or want reimbursement, how often do rally plotters keep track of expenses that mount up over the time of rally organisation. These costs can be often be significant and usually they are absorbed without consideration. Greg Terrill Rally Organiser. 26
