From David Low
Seen at the MSCA Club presentation picnic at Bethany was the Late Judy and John Bowering’s Sprite. Dean King is now the owner, nd tidied up the car which has not been seen for several years . Note the reversed steering mounted wheel and the lockable hand brake, features John added to the car.
Older members of the Club will remember this car and it will always be known as Judy and John’s Sprite
The committee would like to hear from anyone who has any new suggestions as to where we can hold our display day again in October.

Title: BBQ at Castle Doube
Location: Paul and Ruth Doube’s
Description: The clubbie group always starts the social part of the year with a BBQ at our place, and in which we have traditionally tried to fill the back yard with clubbies – photo of one of those days was actually on Google Earth for a while.
Sunday 23 February and all Sprite Club members are more than welcome – if bringing a Sprite, just drive around the back and we will fit you in – people need to bring
- Whatever they want to put on the BBQ
- A chair
- Something to share – we don’t really ask people to bring particular things, just whatever they think is okay and if we double up on something so be it
- If hot, bring your bathers as the pool is always inviting on a hot day
We normally start from about midday on but if we say 12.00 to 1.00pm then it will be about right.
Start Time: 12:00

“GONG XI FA CAI”
On a very hot Adelaide City Saturday night 40+degrees, 25 Sprite club members enjoyed a very pleasurable evening at the Hong Kee Restaurant to celebrate the year of the “Horse” and the start of the Lunar New Year.
Judging by comments passed during the evening, the food was declared very good, and service by the staff was very pleasant, conversation and laughter went on during the night culminating in a big Roar when Fay Brock!, yes its that woman again, confirming that like good wine she gets better with age was awarded 1st prize for the best Asian dressed woman, closely followed as runner up by Barb Ridge, a great effort by all ladies to impress their Yobbo shirted gentlemen.
The Mens Worst Shirt award went to David low and again very close runner up was Ken Dutch, many thanks to Michael McClaren representing Bentleys with 4 great prizes.
The owners welcomed our attendance as much as we enjoyed their restaurant , even though the lion was still in the Jungle, it was good number of members for the night and thanks to everyone who made an effort to be part of the night, so put on your thinking caps and lets make the next club dinner even better and the more members that come along to events like this can only strengthen our club’s appeal.
