Social Day Out

12th April 2018

It was mid morning as members made their way to Integral Energy Park and the Motorlife Museum’s Brabham Room for the club’s annual Social Day Out.

Maureen had organised her probing trivia quiz so there was plenty of chat and happy banter as the group tucked into the lovely cakes and slices for morning tea while they puzzled over the questions.

The chicken lunch arrived on cue at midday which cut the buzz of conversation to a minimum but once the food had been devoured the laughter and conversation started up again.

The temperature outside was 35°C; far too hot for the outdoor games that had been planned so members stayed in the air conditioned comfort and enjoyed each others company.

Most of your membership fee goes to Head Office toward the public liability insurance. Envelopes will be available at the meeting. Please make life easier for our membership coordinator by bring the right money. She will thank you.

Bus Trips

The club desperately needs a bus trip organiser. If you are willing to perform this task please let the committee know as soon as possible. It would be a pity to let this activity die for the lack of an organiser.

Membership Fees Due

As most members will know all membership fees are now due for 2018. Envelopes will be available at the meeting, please fill in your details, put the exact money in the envelope and seal it. Make life easy for our hard working treasurer as she will not be able to give change.

Because of the location it will not be possible for us to set up the trade table but all the other activities should take place.
