President’s Message – October 2019

(sequel to September President’s message) A lot can happen in a month and it certainly has. Those members who read my September President’s message, would have detected a hint of frustration in my musings over new members joining our Club simply to access our CPS. In the interim between writing that message and now, this…

President’s Message – September 2019

Perhaps the following subject may be a bit taboo or touch the odd nerve or two, but it’s something that as President I’ve put off sharing with members, but I think the subject needs to be aired. Why would someone want to join a Club like ours? I would have thought the primary reason was…

President’s Annual Report

Reflecting on the past year I hope Club members enjoyed the Club’s last 12 months as much as I did. There was a total of 54 mid-week & Sunday Club rides held over the past year (approx. equal numbers of Melbourne & Geelong rides) that were attended by 590 members. Apart from the Club rides…

President’s Message – July 2019

Sadly, we have lost another Club member and an iconic genius and engineer at that.

Many gifted people often take their…

President’s Message – June 2019

In March 2021 our Club will be celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary. 2021 sounds a long way off but in reality it’s less than 2 years away, but based on the way time seems to fly by, it will be no time at all before the grand occasion arrives. In keeping with tradition, we will be…

Although the intent of the Rally was to commemorate Ian & Jan Kennedy’s remarkable 10 Gippsland Classic Rallies which obviously brought a sombre mood to the weekend at times, I believe Ian & Jan would have expected…

Congratulations to Paul Clayton and Richard Mason on organising a very successful Pub and Grub Ride in February. There were some 24 participants on 22 bikes, with quite a few of the bikes being classics. The Tungamah Hotel was a very interesting destination Over the years it has been built over a huge water well…

President’s Message – March 2019

Important notice to all members. To avoid unnecessary delays in having your CPS renewals signed or your new CPS applications processed, it is necessary to send your documents to the correct person at the correct PO Box. Too many members are still sending their documents to Ray Isles or others to the Club’s PO Box.…

President’s message – part 2

  Will you know when it’s time to stop riding? To some the following will be a taboo subject for discussion or even thinking about – I get that, however I have been giving this a lot of thought and considering my age and the average age of my Club riding mates I think we…
