The Club AGM will be conducted at the March 27th Social meeting, followed by a ‘Chat fest’- I’m very pleased that we have nominations for all elected positions.   I thank all those working for the Club during the year- Elected, Appointed and general helpers- your efforts are invaluable when creating the opportunities for all members to share in great camaraderie and fun.

Special thanks to Committee retirees – Lee Nicolle (Secretary 2yrs) and Brian Cosh (Treasurer 7 yrs) and also Kingsley Neumann (appointed – Audio Visual 10 years), I’ll have great pleasure in providing more detail on these volunteers at the AGM.

Dorado Downs (near Geranium) may shortly be the site for some ‘sand’ training/driving – keep an eye on Catchat for more details.
