All British Day, what a wonderful event. To those 30 members who came up to Echunga, thank you. To all the other members, you really did miss out on a great day.
850 cars were on the oval for display, and there were so many more interested people paying to get in. The venue up at the Echunga oval was very well organized, mind you some rubbish bins would have been good. A large range of interesting stall for the girls were on display and their were more food stalls as well. Members set themselves up under the marqueand all had a great day.
The run will start at the Club rooms, Fullarton Park Centre at 5.30p.m. for a 5.45 p.m. start. Details to follow.

23 members wound their way up to Gumeracha to Fay and Gary Brock’s home for the traditional Australia Day BBQ and what a day it turned out to be. Adelaide put on wonderful weather for the event. Lots of nibbles, including Molly’s wonderfully exhilirating prawn crackers, and along with the barbie food and sweets, which were mouthwateringly delicious, none fattening of course, ha ha ha!, and with all the alcoholic beverages one could imagine, make it an enjoyable day.
The Australia Day Trophy, renamed the John Bowering trophy, in remembrance of John, was won by one of our newest members, Gerry Thompson, who assured us that he would cherish and care for the trophy until next year.
Thanks again to the Brocks for opening up their lovely home for a really enjoyable event.

“WOW WOW WOW” those who chose not to attend last nights mid week run missed out on an event worthwhile going to.
On a very warm evening, 15 members met at Pat and Mike’s home for drinks and nibbles and then we all wound our way down to the Sailmaster at North Haven, via Glenelg, West Beach, Henley Beach, Semaphore, Fort Glanville, noting many wonderful sights of Adelaide along our journey. Some members met us there, while others like John made hasty urgent repairs on the side of the rode to continue his journey.
The meals were fantastic, the drinks were brillantly cold and the conversations were riviting and very informative. Thanks again to the McLaren’s for taking the time to prepare, book and make an enjoyable run/evening for those who attended.
