Chairman’s Report Ok let’s start with a goodbye, well goodbye as chairman anyway. This is my last epistle and I eagerly await Bruce Ardell’s, your new Chairman, first one next month. I really must thank you all for the opportunity to be Chairman over the last three years it has been very enjoyable, sometimes chalenging, but enjoyable never the less. I believe we have a great club and hope that I have done something to enhance it. I am just as sure that Bruce and his committee will continue in that vein over the next few years. Great news on the committee is that there are many new faces which helps keep the club alive. As far as I know Dave McDermid and Chris White are new faces and Linda Kendrick is a returning face. I will be staying with them for a year as outgoing Chairman. You may want to note that next month’s run is on the 23rd of July and it will be different so I’m told so don’t miss it. We have an additional event being held on the 27th August in aid of the National Daffodil Rally for Cancer. This is going to be a big National event and all branches have been asked to participate, more details will follow but please save the date. The Annual Rally, well once again we have surpassed ourselves with a fabulous weekend, on the social

and the rally side. Jim indicated we would not be restricted to tar sealed roads and boy did he keep his word. We were invited to a morning and an afternoon run with timed sections on both. Some of the results were spectacular, the winners for instance, and others not quite so, those that did not win for instance. I have included the results on page 6 and I would like to thank those who pulled over and allowed cars through as that’s what makes rallying possible. Oh and when is a hard luck trophy not hard luck, when it’s not your Model T, well done Chris and hard luck Lee. What also made this weekend special was the catering, Eilidh and her merry band did an absolutely fabulous job in very difficult circumstances. They should all be applauded for their dedication and hard work, thanks very much. We have agreed to a long term use of our clubrooms by the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes who will be using the facilities twice per month and that is why you may have noted the RAOB sign on the fence. Over to  you  Bruce!
