i Jun 12th No Comments by


I thank Steve Pearson (acting as the Club president) and the various volunteers attending Committee meetings over the winter period.     For those travelling, we wish you a safe journey and look forward to hearing and reading (Cat Chat article) about your adventures.

On behalf of members I thank those on Club Committees for their hard work during a period of change and innovation and to Lance Boagey his band of helpers who represented our Club at the recent ‘Birdwood celebration of 4WD’ event.

I’m very pleased to welcome new members, Kathy with Chris Wyatt (999) and Jo with Greg Lamey (1000).   Lachlan with Leslie Peter (600) have rejoined the Club having returned to Adelaide after working in Saudi for over 10yrs.

Our guest speaker for the Tuesday June 25th Social meeting will be Solicitor Tanya Ryan who will discuss the latest in Wills and the various Powers of Attorney.

Following a display of the latest Triton model at the May Social meeting by Danny Fassina and his team, North East Mitsubishi (NEM) have offered the following discounts to members. When purchasing a vehicle through NEM. they will receive: – National Fleet Pricing; No Dealer Delivery Fee; Trade Price on all Accessories and any Monthly Incentives in place. NEM. will also offer Trade Price on all Parts and Trade Price on Servicing.

For those looking for something different, I recommend a tour of the clipper ship City of Adelaide where your tour fee assists with the renovation of the vessel.    How did they transmit sunlight down into the first-class cabins?

Having developed an appetite, you could walk a short distance to ‘Pancakes at the Port’ for a lovely meal whilst overlooking the activities on the Port river.
