Ashton’s President’s Prattle for November, 2023

By the Bay Tyre Kick October 2023

Morning everyone! With November upon us already (and, it must be said, some lovely weather generally creating a better car-driving experience!) we have started to think about Christmas and then next year.

Your committee met this weekend just gone, and minutes will be published shortly. The really important stuff is of course Christmas Party planning!

This year, as in previous ones, we will combine the Annual General Meeting with the Christmas Party. They will be taking place this year at the Australian Motor Heritage Foundation in conjunction with a visit from the doyen of Lotus Elites, Don Christopher, who will be our guest of honour for our Christmas Party.

You’ll see more details in Chunky’s and upcoming by email, but for the moment, please save the date of Saturday 2nd December, from 12noon for the AGM, and from 1pm for lunch.

CLA will be providing subsidised catering (more details TBC), but you may want to bring your own chairs, rugs etc!

In other news, Tyre Kicks continue to be well frequented on the second and third Sundays of the month, and we are planning (now that the weather is apparently going to be more predictable!) to get some more extended early morning runs organised in NSW to match those in other parts of the known world too – watch this space (and your emails). In the meantime, the third Sunday location will be changing temporarily from Gough Whitlam Park as the football season has got underway, and there was no parking there last month! So we will use Bourke Street Bakery at 2 Mitchell St, Marrickville for the moment, with the possibility that Kokoda Cafe may be operational again in the New Year.

And with the CSCA series wrapped for another year (see the excellent write up on our website), planning is already underway for next year’s events, with the exciting possibility that Wakefield (or One Raceway as it is now christened) will be reopened around June. We have dates in the diary for an event back there in July and again in October, so fingers crossed that happens. If you haven’t been contacted by the new management team to volunteer your time to support this brilliant cause, go to their Faceplant page and sign up!

Then before we know it, the Christmas decorations and tinsel will be out and we’ll be looking forward to a break over the New Year.

In the meantime, keep safe, well, upright and mainly on the blackstuff,

Pip pip,
