April 2017

I welcome the elected Committee for 2017/18 – Lee Nicolle, Brian Cosh, Col Price, Naomi and Kevin Jolly, Fiona Davis, John O’Daly, Alain Lioret and Steve Pearson.

Congratulations to Bob Bolto (and Heather) for becoming the 4th Life Member of our Club at our recent AGM.

I look forward to chatting to those in appointed roles – we thank them all for volunteering their time.

Due to winter trips our various Committee’s ranks will be thinned – I encourage members to come forward and offer assistance.

I’m very pleased to welcome our newest members:- Darren Zanker (960) with Liana and Robert Parvin with Monica (961).  Please make them feel welcome as they try the different activities offered by the Club.

Many thanks to John O’Daly for his series of videos presented at our recent Long Trips meetings. Please contact Peter Sandercock (longtrips@mitsi4wrsa.org.au) if you have some photos or video from a trip – 4wd or otherwise.

 

A number of members have been awaiting the release of the Pajero Polymer ARB Frontier Diesel Fuel Tanks. They are now available and replace the original fuel tank with an extra 60 litres for older and 40 litres for newer models.
