President’s Ramble – March 2018

February 2018 did not go as one might plan it, at least not for the Club, cauliflower growers (have you seen their current prices?) nor for those in some very damaged and wet parts of the country. This weather and other events altered our timetable, as well as made those hearty and strong souls that […]

President’s Ramble – Feb 2018

Well I have had a lovely break and I hope you have as well. Those of you with the right contacts or incessant urges to follow Peugeot sales on Trademe will note that quite a bit has been going on with wheelings and dealings of Peugeots. Nick Watson has picked up a very nice 404 […]

President’s July 2017 Ramble

President’s April Ramble

This time last year you had a vice-president’s ramble, as my family and I were away vacationing in Europe. Somehow the world seemed a safer place a year ago with fewer refugees. In our euro-centric world view, at least as predominantly presented to most NZers by both traditional media and social media, what has been […]
