I unfortunately at the moment seem to be spending more time away from home than at home – or at least that is how it seems – I haven’t checked my diary to see what the truth is. Either way what it did mean is that I missed the last club night of the year as I believe most of you lot did too. Those that went had an enjoyable time – but could have done with some reinforcements – or so a little birdie has told me.
One of the reasons for my being away was the recent trip to Taranaki for the 202, 203 and 504 Anniversary weekend. Sven had us travel the road less travelled a number of times. Unfortunately for me, I wasn’t in one of the aforementioned models but my 505 V6, which I think sits lower than the other 505s I have owned. This meant I acted as a grader on one of the roads, most likely for the benefit of Greg in his 405, the only car newer than mine.
On behalf of the committee, my family and myself I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a fantastic new year. I hope to see many of you at upcoming events, especially the Gymkhana and the interclub with Wellington.
