All of a sudden, the cold weather has cleared and we are experiencing some warm days and evenings.
Many of those that took long trips away during winter have returned and right now the club is very active. The Long Trips Meeting group are back holding well attended meetings and the Mechanical Interest Group have regrouped to visit some interesting workshops and learn some technical information. All members are invited to participate in these popular meeting, just let the organisers know you are planning to attend so that arrangements can be made for appropriate numbers.
The Promotions Committee have also regrouped after winter, holding our first New Members Meeting where we welcomed 5 new members/families. Pleasingly, we have a good spread of age groups joining our club, some with young children providing opportunity to raise future four wheel drivers.
The Website Committee are about to fire up again to continue their good work updating the Club Website which continues to be one of our biggest recruiting tools.
Finally, we have held quite a few recent short trips as the weather improves, with successful trips to Bendelby Ranges, Peake and Argadells, each providing the opportunity to do some challenging 4WDing and some socialising around the camp fire. All were very well attended, and new members have taken advantage to participate in these popular trips.
It is a great time to get involved in the various trips and activities that are on offer. Check out what is on offer in the trips and events pages in the magazine.
Don’t forget the upcoming Christmas Party, an event for all ages with young members able to meet Father Christmas and older members having plenty of time to chat, relax and enjoy the weekend away.
