Vice President’s Report – August 2019

i Aug 16th No Comments by

Hi everyone.   This month we welcome new members 1002 Danny Fassina of North East Mitsubishi, 1003 John and Ilene Thiel and returning member 408 Jo Demmler/Nick Orr.    You might recall Danny visited our club at the May social meeting to display the latest Triton.    Don’t forget that the team at North East Mitsubishi (NEM) have offered the following discounts to members.     When purchasing a vehicle through North East Mitsubishi, they will receive:
– National Fleet Pricing
– No Dealer Delivery Fee
– Trade Price on all Accessories and any Monthly Incentives in place.
– North East Mitsubishi will also offer Trade Price on all Parts and Trade Price on Servicing.

Please make all of our new members feel welcome when you meet them.

We have had a relatively quiet winter period on the committee, sometimes struggling to gather a quorum for our meetings as many of our members have been travelling,  however we will soon return to business as usual as winter trips wind up.
Just a reminder that there are currently 3 vacant committee positions available.     If you have ever thought of getting involved in the running of the club, there has never been a better time to get involved.    Each vacant spot is a position without specific title, giving the committee and the interested member the opportunity to contribute in a way that interests them.     Please have a think about if you are able to contribute in some way, and talk to one of the committee.     You are welcome to come along to a committee meeting as a visitor to have a look at how we operate at any time.     We would love to get some new members with fresh ideas involved.

Next social meeting our guest speaker will be Alex of Carto graphics, discussing ‘Developments in Raster mapping and the importance of hardcopy maps’.     These talks are always popular with many questions and answers coming from the floor.

Finally, the Day and Short Trips are about to ramp up as the weather improves.     There are still vacancies for Peake for both Sand Driving Training and Social Driving.     If you have not been to Peake for a while, consider coming along to check out the changes, try out your vehicle or just come and sit around the campfire for a chat.
