Presidents Report - December 2018

dlivianHi all,

Christmas is upon us (way too fast) and we are looking forward to the 2019 Mustang year.

We kick off with the All American Day on January 20 at our new home, Macarthur Square Campbelltown.

Everything is under control so all we need are a few members early to help park cars.

Also, if you are interested in judging on the day, contact me.

Next, we have Easter with the Nationals, and in NSW the Anniversary Pony Round Up at the Vineyard Hotel, the All Ford Day in July, Mustang Muster and State Concours in September and our Christmas Party.

I don’t want to depress you that another year just disappeared, but only to highlight that we have key events nicely spaced out throughout the year for our members. What we need now is an events coordinator to fill in the gaps with other shows, drives and events.
Many of these are invitations from other clubs and a few are new runs we come up with.

We have more retirees in the club and are calling for YOU join us on the committee.

d livian bYou will have help from us as well as the members who come up with ideas on their own.

The events coordinator doesn’t have to organise everything or go to everything but be a central point of contact for events and submit a calendar to our editor, David Lodge.
Think about it.

You will notice that the magazine is now in full colour which not only presents so much better but makes it easier for our editor, David Lodge, who now doesn’t have to format the magazine to allow colour inserts only on certain pages.

Our regional chapters are going great (thank you to their leaders) and it’s nice to now see their reports and photos in colour, as well as all the adverts.

d livian aHopefully you will receive your magazine more reliably just before the general meeting.

All this following research into an alternate printer who offers a print, pack and post service.

We trust you will enjoy the new format.

We will not have a January meeting or magazine so the first meeting for 2019 will be on February 20, just after the Canberra Mustang Show (details elsewhere in this magazine).

Finally thank you to all who have contributed to the club over the past 12 months and we wish all our members a safe and happy Christmas and New Year period.

Until we meet again, enjoy your Mustang

David Livian
