December Update

by John and Rose Smith

Season’s greetings to all,

I trust you are all looking forward to a Happy Christmas surrounded by family and friends, and a prosperous new year to follow.


We (Rose and I) are having two family Xmas gatherings in AKL, one on 24th and one 25th with different legs of our families, and then escaping in our TeePee  (Moho) on Boxing day to go around East Cape and Hawkes Bay for three weeks. Will need a bit of cycling to get over the two big days me thinks.


For those who may not be aware, Rose and I have taken over the Co-ordination/Administration role from David and Lynn Buxton, who have done an excellent job in the past. They have set the standard very high and we have all benefited from that.


“So David and Lynn, on behalf of all club members, we say thank you both most sincerely for all you have done for the club. It would not be what it is today without your very significant input. Please don’t be strangers to our members, we would welcome your involvement in the club in future, even though you no longer own an Autotrail!"


A couple of Fridays ago David and Lynn and Rose and I met to manage the handover of the files and some of the knowledge that they had gained from their years with the club. I am sure we will have questions of them in future but we have an excellent start point for now.


Rose and I are happy to be contacted at any time if there are any club matters that you believe should be brought to our attention, and our details are on the web site in the members area, but for your information you can email on:

Ph 021-854-969


One last thing for the year, the 2018 Rally in Tauranga is well into the planning stage. We have identified a suitable venue, and secured the commitment of a major sponsor at this stage. The date is expected to be in the second half of October 2018, but not on Labour Weekend.


We have really interesting and relevant topics lined up as possibilities for presentations to the group.

Enough about that now, but we can say the 2018 rally will be one not to miss and will continue the high standard set by previous rallies.


So watch this space and mark your calendars now!!!


In the meantime have a lovely Xmas and New Year and we will be in touch in 2018.


Kind Regards


John and Rose Smith
