October 2016 – The Presidents Report

Letter from The President, October 2016

To all FPV Tickford Club of NSW Members.

Dear All,

I apologise for my late letter this month, I’m only just back from overseas and this was one of my first jobs to address.

So we are now back to daylight savings and a chance to enjoy some longer days, and a chance to get out in our cars and enjoy!

On the Supercars, I see we had a disappointing Sandown race, but this weekend we have the chance to hopefully shine at Bathurst, the jewel in the crown. Let’s hope it’s a day where blue rules !

Let me be brief this month.

McCredies in September was the best turnout for many a month and we were back on last night, October 4. I see that Ben had already forewarned you all by message. It was a good turnout again, with all of the regulars turning up. It’s a good night so here’s the challenge, if you haven’t been for a while (or ever), come along in November !

Cars & Doughnuts was also great in September I hear. October is on this Sunday, October 9, and while it’s Bathurst Sunday, the race doesn’t start until after 11am, so still chance to roll with the doughnuts !!

September was a good month for events as well.

Henry on the Hunter on 11 September had 5 cars along and from what I hear a good day. The Lugarno show on 18 September in particular was a success again, 18 cars and another FPV-Tickford Car Club of NSW best display trophy (our second of the year). Well done to Mario and Craig who are getting loads of events opportunities out to Club members, you all have a good selection off events to go to in the coming months.

The ongoing “Meet the Member” series carries on this month, here is the chance to introduce to you Juyale “Juey” John. Enjoy reading his profile.

Brian has also had some updates done on the website so check that out on www.fpvclub.com. And don’t forget to keep updated on the Facebook page too, FPV Tickford Club of NSW. You can also see on the facebook page loads of Lugarno photos including our trophy !

As I say, a little brief this month, but until November, happy safe driving,

Kind regards,
John Barbaro President, FPV Tickford Club of NSW
