" A View From The Top "
G' Day All,
Welcome to the June edition I hope it finds you somewhere warm and dry. I've just arrived home from Yarra Glen where the "
National Motoring Heritage Day' was held....an terrific event now in its second year but more about all that later...
The recent cold and damp conditions hasn't deterred many of you getting that old Holden out for a run. ANZAC Day was very
wet indeed but "Lions Pride" still provided 5 vehicles to help transport veterans . If you have ever taken part in the march
down St. Kilda Rd. to the Shrine you will appreciate just what an incredible honour and privilege it is ....a heartfelt thanks to all
who generously made themselves available to help on the day.
A special thanks to all who helped at Bunnings during our recent fundraiser. It was a pretty cold wind that swept across the
car park between showers on that Saturday......still we had a few laughs and raised some dollars for the club. The thought of
Bruce and the kiss of life thing still brings tears to my eyes.... I guess that you just had to be there to appreciate the moment !
Once again our display of old Holdens drew great interest. Kym organized and managed the day and she had no trouble
finding cooks as the 'kitchen' was the only warm place in sight .
The weather was much kinder to us at Yarra Glen with late autumn sunshine casting some warmth across a most impressive
display of vehicles. The event was organized by both the RACV and the AOMC....... and we were treated to a interesting
display of vintage ,veteran and classic vehicles. Duncan arrived in an ex RACV patrol vehicle ,a beautifully restored FJ panel
van , a most impressive sight indeed. If all that wasn't enough to hold your attention there was always the shuttle bus to either
the Yering Winery or the historic Gulf Station. Then there was the helicopter joy flights... Wayne reckons it was by far the best
$50 he had ever spent in his entire life bar nothing! So there you have it folks....a great day out.
As previously advised the AGM will be held at the "Mulgrave Community Centre" on Sat.28th.July , besides the committee
election there will be an auction which has traditionally been a fundraiser for the club. Any automotive memorabilia or objects
of interest which you could donate or put a reserve on would be most appreciated. This is always a good fun night , so make
sure you get along dressed as a movie character and get into the spirit of the occasion .
The Alexandra Truck and Ute Show will be held over the Queens Birthday Weekend.....several members have expressed
interest in cruising up on the Sunday. This is a fantastic event which I only managed to get to for the first time last year ....it
certainly left me regretting that I hadn't made the discovery sooner. The decision to go will be weather dependent and I would
imagine that a departure from Lilydale around 07.45 would be necessary . I'm certainly up for it as its not only a great drive its
also a tremendous event.......hope to see you there .
Until Next Time,
