In the absence of President Steven, Vice President Clive Cooper took the chair for a well-attended meeting in September.

The ladies reported an enjoyable luncheon in August but there will be none this month in deference to the club's big Father's Day run.

We have been requested to again provide cars for this year's high school formal and members are reminded that membership $40 is due before our AGM in November.

READ ALSO:

Some members have been participating in a Friday morning run to Jamworks in Glen Aplin where Stanthorpe members also attend.

Our next run was to be to the Bilirimba Falls lookout but following the recent bushfires we may have to arrange an alternative destination.

Following the meeting 39 members drove to Drake in 16 cars for our popular Annual Father's Day run and lunch at the Lunatic hotel.

The next meeting is on Sunday October 6 at 9.30am. (Remember daylight savings.)

For more information contact President Steve on (02) 6736 2862.
