Winter news

President’s message

Welcome to the Winter Newsletter. The club has had a great first half of 2017, with lots more planned for the remainder of the year.

The Easter Rally was a huge success and I am pleased that we were able to raise around $900 for the Good Friday Appeal. We had about 20 vehicles entered the rally with 50-60 people who came along for the day.

We also had a joint rally with the Ballarat Goldfields Car Club and a good time was enjoyed by all. We started at the Birregurra Park then headed out to Mike and Katrine Juleff’s berry farm which was terrific. I’d like to thank to Mike and Katrine for their hospitality on the day.
