BBQ and Trafficator School

Enjoy a social BBQ day at the Edwards Ranch in wonderful Whittlesea.

Just so that you don't go away empty-headed, Rob Smith will be conducting a Trafficator Extravaganza workshop session, in Henry's extensive car barn, for all those interested in how they work and how to fix and wire them-up when they don't. You'll learn how to make them blink along with your normal turn signals.

Everything you wanted to know about Trafficators but were afraid to ask!

Henry & Marlene Edwards' place is at 11 Serrell Court, Whittlesea.

Impromptu Runs or Pop-up Runs on a week day

The Committee would like to encourage members to welcome other members to join them on their private morrie runs during the week, or whenever, to increase social interaction of members in-between Club meetings and the monthly weekend runs. This has been difficult to arrange previously when relying on either "the Generator" or just the monthly meetings to broadcast run arrangements.
But with almost everyone on the internet these days, it should be possible to get this happening immediately following the simple procedure outlined below.

As soon as you have a run in mind, preferably at least with 48 hours notice, send an email to the Editor headed "Pop-up Run" giving details of date, time & place of meeting, (McDonalds are good mustering places for coffee and initial toilet visit) and details of the intended destination and any suggestions for BYO food or café etc. plus your name and mobile phone number.
The Editor will then immediately forward your e-mail to all Club members listed on the Club database.
All you have to do then is turn up at the selected meeting point by the appointed time, and a good time can be had by all.
Feedback to the Club via any of the Committee members would be appreciated after such runs or at the next Club meeting.
Please note that Pop-up runs are not intended to replace the monthly weekend run, but be an additional Club activity.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Please think of runs you would like to do this year, or even next year,
and discuss them with the Club Captain.
