The world changes very quickly during a pandemic event like COVID-19! Last week when I wrote to you all, some events were happening, some were likely to happen and some had ceased completely. The latter has become the norm for many events and organisations over the past few days.
While there was a very successful, socially distanced MSCA Super Sprint at Mallala last weekend (report to follow) many other events have since been cancelled.
The Sporting Car Clubrooms and the Fullarton Park Community Centre are two such organisations that have closed their doors to events this week. Therefore we do not have a venue for a Stars and their Cars Meeting in April and our General Meeting in May and possible beyond. These meetings have been cancelled and we will reconvene them once life returns to normal or whatever it will be post COVID-19.
Here is an update of the Calendared Events and their current Status:
April 5th – McLaren Vale Vintage and Classic Run – CANCELLED
April 6th – Stars and Their Cars Meeting – CANCELLED
April 9th – 13th – 2020 National Sprite Challenge, CANCELLED
May 3th – Peter Hall Memorial 6-Hour Relay – CANCELLED
May 4th – General Meeting, Guest Speaker – CANCELLED
May 10th – Run to the Elephant Door – POSTPONED
May 23rd – Classic Sports Car Cruise – POSTPONED
May 31st – Collingrove Hillclimb 2 – CANCELLED
As the status of other events change we will keep you posted via the web site and the Facebook page.
While you cannot go for drive or socialise with the Sprite Club members, these times of social distancing and self isolating might be the catalyst to head to the shed and have a tinker with the Sprite, polish the Midget, service the Clubman or just sort the nuts and bolts into their various sizes!
The Sprite Club of South Australia will keep these pages active during this time with reports of previous events from this year, and flashback to time past and other snippets of information to keep your interest in the Sprite Club and the vehicles we “Foster, Promote and Preserve!”
Stay safe and healthy during these times
President Gordon Boyce and the Committee of the Sprite Club of South Australia
