Gearing up for Christmas

We held our AGM on November 1 and the 42 members attending re-elected the executives for the following year.

These resulted in:

  • president - Steve Thomas,
  • vice president - Steve Ost,
  • secretary - David Ware,
  • treasurer - Francis Thomas and
  • John Macnish as our new events organiser.

Despite the COVID-19 restrictions meetings have been well attended and we all look forward to more activities when the situation improves.

Following the meeting six of our cars met up with a group of car enthusiasts from Guyra at the Tenterfield Railway Station.

For our Christmas party it was decided to have a barbecue lunch following our December meeting on Sunday the sixth at the Sunnyside Hall.

This meeting will commence later at 10:30 am and the club will supply the meat but members are asked to bring their own Individual salads and sweets.

Any inquiries please contact President Steve on 6736 2862 or secretary David on 6736 2563.
