President’s Report – February 2016

i Feb 18th No Comments by


We’re into the second month of the year and the Committee has been busy organising upcoming events.

Our 30th anniversary sub-committee has progressed well, having selected the venue and prepared a program. Bookings can now be made with the Nuriootpa Caravan Park (ph 1800 251 634) for the period Fri 25th to Sun 27th November 2016 with financial members currently being given priority. Shortly, bookings will be opened to past members so please register early to secure your accommodation.

You’ll find a range of environmental activities as you read further into this CatChat.

The Club’s annual accounts up to the 31st December 2015 have been audited and approved.

Membership renewals have been due since January and need to be completed by the end of February with the annual fee of $75 remaining unchanged from last year – BSB 035047 Account 255297 – please include your Mitsi number.

I’m pleased to welcome our newest members – Mark Dallman and his partner Fran Manning.

Tues 23rd February Social meeting – I also look forward to the presentation from the RAA on their Comprehensive Insurance and Premium membership benefits for 4wd owners. We’ll also have a special addition to the usual menu – steak sandwiches.

Tues 22nd March Social meeting will be the Annual General Meeting.

Our guest speaker for the Social meeting on Tues 26th April will be from SAPOL discussing ‘e’crime – simple actions we can take to protect our online and banking identities.

We recently completed the annual Club trip to the Victorian Alps and returned early due to damp slippery conditions- still a great trip with great camaraderie as we stood around in the light rain.

The Pajero Club of Victoria is holding a Pajero Muster over the Easter Weekend and they cordially invite members of the Mitsubishi 4WD Club of SA to join them at Moonambel, contact for more details.

Did you know that if you have a Satellite phone with an inactive SIM, emergency services can still be contacted using 000 (Local emergency) or failing this via the 112 (International emergency number).

Hopefully the really hot weather is behind us and we can again, venture into the wilderness.
