A message from the president

Have a safe, happy and fun Christmas break

Hello members and friends,

Another year is almost over so it is time to wish you all the very best for the festive season.

We had a great month with Christmas celebrated in style at the Galli Winery, the Major was won by Brian MacCumber, a colleague of Shayne’s, and a run with the Morris Register to the Mini Big Day out topped off a successful year for the club.

On the raffle, Brian has decided to sell the Major so if you are interested be quick, he is selling for around $6,000 so it would be a great buy and it would be even better if the car was to stay in the club. Alain is learning about digital radio and Bluetooth with his second-place prize the reproduction retro radio and we also got high praise from Denise Linsell with her third place prize, the fabulous quilt made by Margaret Read, (featured on page one of the November edition of Bull’s-Eye) “… beautiful workmanship, pass on our thanks to those involved.” Diane wrote.

2020 is shaping up to be another big year for the club. In November we will be hosting the Morris Festival which will take some effort from many to make it a great day. Please talk to Shayne or me if you are interested in getting involved.

Our first meeting of the year will be in February where Bryce Gaton, from AEVA Victorian Branch will be giving a presentation on converting classic cars to an electric drive train. Please be sure to make it along for this very topical discussion.

Some of the more frequent visitors to our web site may have noticed some events being moved around to accommodate our involvement with the Ballarat Morris Club’s 40th anniversary celebrations. The March outing will now be a two-day outing on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 March 2020. The Ballarat Club has given us tremendous support this year with our raffle and it would be great if we could reciprocate with a strong attendance at their celebrations. 40 years is a fantastic achievement and I am looking forward to meeting with their members over the weekend. 

I want to close by saying a big thanks to the MCCV committee of management for their contributions this year. To Tim, Bevan, Geoff, Tony, Jo-Anne and Andrew sincere thanks for all you have done. To our new members welcome, I hope you have a great time mixing and sharing your stories with our members.

See you in 2020 

Keep on Morrying 

Stephen Whitworth

President – MCCV
