The Late Judy and John Bowering’s Sprite

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, and has 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

BBQ at Castle Doube

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
– Drinks
– 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
Date: 2014-02-23
