Letter From The President, September 2018

Hi Members,

September……. Weather is getting warmer and supercar enduro season begins!!!

Members gift 2018-2019 T-shirts. All sizes have now been recorded and noted down and I am in contact with our
shirt supplier just finalising things now. We will get these sorted as soon as possible and sort a day or 2 as a get
together to get them all out to everyone.

Email issues, there seems to be a handful of members that have had some trouble with receiving emails, luckily
these members have seen events and information on the facebook page or been passed on by other members.
We are still working on why some emails have not been getting through or have been delayed. If you feel you
have been missing emails or can’t remember seeing any for some time please get in touch with someone from
the committee.

The committee is very happy to announce that the Club Christmas Party/Show n Shine will be:

Sunday the 9th December 2018.
Hubertus Country Club, Luddenham

Please mark down the date and keep it free, we would like to see everyone there!!
Details to follow…

No additions to the committee this month, but just a reminder that if you would like to volunteer to help us out we
still have 2 positions that need to be filled, our webmaster role and also CFC Delegate. If you would like to get
involved, we would love to have you aboard.

Event Recap
Saturday the 18th August with our cruise down to Wakefield Park Raceway, we seen some great racing and had
access to areas that we usually can’t get anywhere near, like the pit lane wall.!! A very very cold day, but we still
had about 10 cars attend. This was a great event which had a bit of everything, a cruise down, display, and
dinner at the local pub in Goulburn before heading home. Thanks to Rob for a well organised event. The
Wakefield Park Track Manager is keen to get us down the for a track day/driver training if we wanted, we will
work with them and get some information out to see if there is any interest.

Unfortunately Sam and John’s Avon Dam Cruise and BBQ the following weekend had to be postponed due to
bad weather, the guys had this all planned out and looking good so it was just unlucky it couldn’t go ahead, but
keep an eye on events as they are still planning to run this one sometime soon.

Tuesday the 4th was this month’s club social night/get together at Crown on McCredie. Only a small gathering of
members for this month, but everyone enjoyed themselves, had some dinner, a drink and a few laughs.


Just a reminder that we still have merchandise available, Jackets, Shirts & Hats. As well as our new club
umbrellas and beanies.

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.
Please contact Scott for more information, prices or information on ordering.

Upcoming Events

This weekend, is the Annual Car Show at Lugarno, as a club we have attended this event for quite a few years
now and it’s a great day out especially with the nice weather that is due over the weekend.

Tuesday 2nd October will be the next monthly club social night/get together at Crown on McCredie. While not
formal club meeting, it is a good chance to meet up, have some dinner and/or a drink and get to know other

As Rob’s email (and facebook page post) we have had some great news from supercars regarding the falcon
tribute at Bathurst this year. Please see email for information.
We have been chasing this for some time, and finally we got some news, but as usual with supercars, everything
is last minute and then urgent. So while we don’t have much notice we also don’t have much time to get the 7
cars spots we have been allocated.
Please get in touch with rob ASAP if interested.

Club cruise and BBQ……
Keep a lookout for emails (facebook page post) regarding a re-schedule of this event in the near future.

Cars and Coffee and Harry’s end of month are 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.
