Ashton’s President’s Prattle for October, 2017

President's Prattle

October dawns fine and sunny and we’re well and truly in the sprint towards the Christmas break.

Thanks to all those who came to the AGM! It was the usual convivial affair featuring Yiorgas’ catering and the reinstatement of your committee with the notable incorporation of the newly-formed Motorsport Committee.

Thank you to all of the committee for your continued hard work, and for putting up with me for another year. Same goes for you, our members J

Thanks as well to all of those who made it to Eggs B. It was a very fun day! Congratulations to Stephen Palmer for taking home the Round the Buckets Trophy. A notable mention as well to Angus Mackie for a creditable performance first time out in the Elan.

In the sprint towards the Christmas break please don’t forget that we have our Christmas party on Sunday the 3rd of December. If you haven’t sent Anne a note confirming your attendance, please do so now so that we can firm up numbers. Our deadline for confirming numbers is the end of October.

Ed and Karth Burton have kindly offered coffee for all those heading down from Sydney, so we will be deviating via Kiama on the way South. Thank you Ed and Kath!

In case you have been asleep, Simply Sports Cars and Lotus Australia are teaming up with Targa High Country again. This year there are 26 cars competing, and it should be a blast! Giles and I are using it to start clocking some cabin time – we’ll let you know how we get on.

Right, time to get this to Tom so that I don’t hold up this month’s CC!

Take care, and keep safe, upright and on the black stuff.

Pip pip,
Ashton.
