Hi  Peter,
Thanks for the kind words, far more important is to thank You AND Cathy for a great and well organized weekend.
Maybe you did have some help (and that is great) but I believe you were the driving force so again Well Done!
Glenda and I just arrived home after taking the tourist route back through Western Victoria.

Regards to all  Morris and Glenda.

Hi All,
Well our Annual Meet is over for another year. Thank god.
We all had a great time with Paul taking the breakdown award and Mark cleaning up most of the others.
PS. My car never left the shed so Paul still won.
I'll post pics soon.
As the out going organiser I give my sympathy to next year's organiser.

I have to thank the following for their assistance in making this weekend work so well.
 Firstly Cathie for letting me do it.
 Morris for organising our Saturday fun event which David and Helen easily won.
 Gary and the crew at the Moama Sportslander Motor Inn who were awesome.
 Mark and Hydeng for all their sponsorship as well as being a natural auctioneer.
 St Anne's winery who supplied the $240 of port Mark and I drank Saturday night.
 Autobarn Echuca and Matt who came and did our impartial car judging.
 The Echuca Historical Vehicles Club who hosted us at their club room for a fantastic lunch.
 Rotary Club of Echuca who allowed us onto their oval for the Cataract Driving.
 Echuca Moama Tourism who supplied all of the information literature and maps meaning I didn't lose anyone for the weekend.
 M&S Group Accounting who supplied so much of our show bags.
 Shannon's for supplying our trophies
 And especially LINAK who are always so generous to us and without whom I'm sure we would make a loss.
Special thanks to my bother in law Harry for coming along to help with crowd control while the members did the tourist thing.

Finally I would like to thank the 39 1/2 members and families for driving all that way to make this a success.


PS.
I almost forgot.
A very special thank you to Morris and the O'Gradys for providing the awesome etched mirror and wine glasses.

Peter

G'day gang,

At Sunday's AGM all committee positions will be vacated and new office bearers elected (or re-elected) so if you'd like to get on the committee to have your say in the running of the club then this is your chance.

Our current secretary Philip Brow, has indicated that he will not be re-nominating for the job so here's your opportunity to get involved if you feel so inclined.

Give it some thought and/or contact me if you'd like more info about it all.

OK Boys and Girls just 19 sleeps until the AGM.
Here's a quick note for anyone who hasn't been to Echuca in Spring.
This is the hay fever capital of Australia.
If you are an allergy sufferer remember to bring some antihistamines.
Other than that I've found that copious amounts of beer seems to cure most allergies.
At least I don't remember sneezing.
PS. We have a bottleo across the road. Whistle

OK times a tickin. Huh?
We need your forms in asap BEFORE September! Shocked
I promised to have allocated most rooms to the motel the start of September so he could list it on Wotif to sell the rest.
If it fills you may have to find your own accommodation away from the crowd. Evil
There are always rumors of Midnight Oil wanting to do a concert now they know the Eurekas are in town.  Whistle
