February 2018

Hi Members,

Welcome back to all the members, new and long term. After a deserved break for most of us, we are back to work, over the Christmas celebrations, and run out of those precious holidays. As for the Albert River Wineries Christmas function,

I have had a lot of positive comments from members relaying to me that the venue, food, set-up and hospitality were all great!  It is always good to get together with fellow enthusiasts. As was agreed at the January meeting, we will do the same for Christmas this year.

2018 looks set to be very busy. Apart from the usual runs, shows, park-ups for charities and the like, we also so have Jumpers & Jazz in Warwick, Presidents Day and of course the Tasmanian Monaro Nationals.

We have the usual monthly meetings at Beenleigh Tavern, and the usual support we always give to other clubs. This year we have agreed to increase our support for the Toowoomba All Holden Day and the Gold Coast Muscle Car Show. Please pass on any club run event suggestions to John so he can set the dates early for you to lock into your diaries.

Just for interest have a look at this link: Monaro Holden Precision Driving Team

I remember as an 11 year old sitting in the tree branches up high, at the then Toowoomba Showgrounds, watching these drivers thrill me to bits. Must have rubbed off. I eventually purchased one, only 30 years after their release. Who said incidental advertising doesn’t work?

If you are a new member, come along to a meeting, introduce yourself and you’ll have a blast. We don’t bite and we’re not a clicky bunch, just car enthusiasts. We are all different, but the cars bring us together and because of that, we get to enjoy each other’s company.

Remember, we do have incentives to attend all Monaro Club of Queensland functions, as six lucky recipients recently found out, each winning a $50 Supercheap Auto voucher. Just turn up as a member and your name is in the draw. Then you have the raffles each club meeting night with terrific prizes this year and of course, the trophies. More importantly you have the people. For me, that is the best part. I am sincerely looking forward to the drive to Tassie, the conversations, friendships formed, laughs and bad jokes will make it a blast.

I hope you can all join us,

Rod Boyle
Club President
