Hi Members,

June and halfway through the year already. And I can proudly now officially remove the “acting” from my committee title and just put president.
It’s been quite a busy time for the club since the last letter with the AGM come and gone, with another big month coming up before our club display at All Ford Day.
As everyone would be aware, the club AGM was held on Tuesday the 5th June, we had a good turnout considering it was a cold and wet night, thanks again to everyone that made the effort to attend.

Congratulations and thank you to everyone on the committee, we have already had our first committee meeting and everyone is very keen and working well together.
If there is anyone that is interested or would like to ask about what’s involved in regards to the postions on the committee that are still open, please contact Steve, Rob or Myself. Obviously we would like to get these filled as soon as possible so that we can move forward and plan properly for the rest of the year.

Event Recap

Past events since the last letter included a club show and shine at the Muscle Car Masters event at Sydney Motorsport Park on Sunday the 10th June, this was an awesome event, a little different to previous years, very easy relaxed show with a slightly later start time which was a nice change. We had about 12 cars there and everyone had a great time.
While not an official club event, Sydney cars and coffee was also on the same day and had its usual high number of great cars on display in which a number of club members regularly attend.
Harry’s end on month meet, again not an official club event, but a good night car show that members also attend.

Membership Renewal

Just a reminder that all memberships are now due. 01.07.18
Please help assist us in getting things sorted for the coming years memberships by doing your renewal as soon as possible.
You will find our club membership renewal form on the website with all the details and payment information on it. Please download and fill this in even if your details haven’t changed as we use these to help keep track of all internet transferred renewals.
If you have any enquires regarding membership renewals, please contact Meg and she can help you out.

All Ford Day 2018

Coming up quickly is this years All Ford Day at Sydney Dragway on the 29th July.
I have started gathering a list of members that wish to display their car with us on the day. We currently have about 37 members on the list which is awesome, if you would still like to attend and display your car please get in touch with me ASAP so we can finalise our list and get a display layout sorted with plenty of time to spare.
All information regarding meeting points and times will be send out before the event with plenty of time.

Please note: This event is almost a month AFTER membership renewals are due. You will need to be a current financial member to be able to display at all ford day. And as previous years we cannot take renewals or payments on the day as it is a very busy morning.

Merchandise

Just a reminder that we still have merchandise available, Jackets, Shirts & Hats. As well as our new club umbrellas that Jackie had down at Sussex Inlet. These are now for sale for $45 and could be very useful over the next few months. (Just hopefully we don’t need them at all ford day)
We are always looking to add items to our merchandise, so feel free to suggest anything you think may be of interest to the club. I think the next item that is being looked into currently are club beanies as suggested by some members at the Sussex weekend.
We do have a limited supply in stock (with samples to get sizing correct) and orders are able to be taken at any time.
Please contact Scott for more information or if you would like any merchandise.

Events

As mentioned the next event (big one of the year) is All Ford Day, while it’s a few weeks away it does involve quite a bit of organising.
The committee will also try to get a small cruise or event organised in the meantime if possible, any details will be emailed and sent out for everyone to be aware

The supercars are back in Sydney early August (Saturday 4th) at the moment there is no club display as we have had in previous years as the organiser is yet to hear back from supercars. I am still hoping that it gets through and we are able to do the same as we have for the last 10 years or so… but it’s getting closer and we usually know something by now so unfortunately it’s not looking great. I will get information out as soon as I hear anything if things change.

A couple more monthly events that many members attend, and while not official club events these are great to get out to and enjoy. If anyone comes across any events on Facebook or the internet that they think look good, please let someone in the committee know or post them up on the club members Facebook page and we can turn them into a club event/get together
