Yesterday was the Club’s Safety Inspection Day at Dillon’s Motors. Great attendance – lots of members and 7 Model T’s (not counting the 2 that were already there!). Thanks to Chris for his hard work, Fiona for the cakes and coffee, and Robbie and Dean for cooking the sausages.
For an Icicle Rally it was certainly a glorious day! Beautiful location too and a fantastic walk to Badger Weir. A cheeky kookaburra snatched the food out of people’s hands.
Please assist your Committee by paying your membership renewal as soon as possible. Payment details are on the Membership Renewal form.
Approximately 40 members attended the Annual Lunch at the Pine Grove Hotel today. Thank you to all retiring Committee members, and congratulations to the new Committee! Club Person of the Year was awarded to Kevyn Brown.
Here are some photos of cars at the long weekend rally at Rosebud. All seemed to be having a lot of fun, and the weather has been nice for this time of year.
The Club was contacted by Jordan who asked whether we could organise a ride for his grandfather for his 87th birthday. Scott Staples kindly obliged!
One very happy grandfather:

Jordan reported afterwards: “I can’t tell you how excited he was. He didn’t stop talking about it all night. So thank you so much.”
Well done Scott!
A glorious day and a great display of cars for the 60th Kalorama. Happily this year is not the last Kalorama event as apparently the issue with the council has been resolved.

Demonstrating a Model T to a group of very excited cubs. This was done to coincide with the centenary of cub scouts – the kids are learning about how things were 100 years ago. They were very enthusiastic despite the 38 degree heat!
The club is proud to display at Club Sandwich this year at Motorclassica.
Come along and have a look at the cars on Saturday 24th October at the Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne.
