We welcome new members (984) Alex Hobin , (985) David Hyams with Amanda, (986) Gordon Young with Susan, (987) Vira Chawtur with Val, (988) Chrissie Stephens, (989) Chris Cornish with Jan, (990) Gordon Kuckhahn with Judy, (991) Alan Roberts, (992) John Elliott with Svetlana and (993) Jacob Simons.     Please make them welcome as they attend Club events.

Our 1000th member isn’t far away – I wonder who it will be?

Our February 26th guest speaker from SAPOL (eCrime) is unavailable.     We’ll organise a series of smaller presentations from members (any volunteers) and a Chatfest (talk amongst ourselves).

March 26th is the AGM and two positions (no allocated duties) remain vacant on the Management Committee.   These positions are very flexible and are designed for members who would prefer to undertake smaller projects and attend a limited number of meetings.

John O’Daly is taking some time away – any volunteers to assist with the Trips position?

A reminder that 2019 Club fees are due by the end of February.

Extensive work is ongoing behind the scenes to upgrade our Website and email systems . . . more details shortly.

Thinking of a winter trip through flooded Queensland ? – Here is a useful site detailing road closures :

I need to organise a schedule of Social meeting speakers for 2019 – if you have ideas please contact me.

The Mechanical Interest Group is also seeking suggestions for likely sites to visit.

Finally, special thanks to those members attending the Club booth at the Caravan and Camping show.     This is a great opportunity to stimulate interest in 4wding and to boost our membership.
