Chairman’s message 20161219

Hello Everybody,

Well, as can be expected, there is not much to report at this time of year. The latest issue of the Oily Rag (No.123) went out late last week, so you should be getting yours shortly, if you haven’t already. (My copy is still in my ‘Super Mailbox’ down the street. I’m waiting for the snow to melt before I venture out to get it!) Thanks to everyone who has supplied articles – they all help to make it a first-class publication. Thanks to Ryan for tying it all together, and of course to Tony Fox and Roger Tipple for licking the stamps and putting those little plastic ‘sticker’ things around the edges!

A few items for your attention:

  • First off, we recently made a connection with Dan MacPherson, of MacPherson Woodcrafts in British Columbia (recently relocated from the UK). This company is offering classic car interior restoration and replacement for both modern and classic cars. Feel free to visit their website at: http://www.macphersonwoodcrafts.com/ if you are seeking help in your restoration. (This should not be construed as a recommendation or an endorsement of this company by the Club).
  • Also, we still have some 2017 Club calendars available. Please contact Tony at tonyfox@sympatico.ca if you haven’t got your copy yet.
  • And don’t forget to mark the date of the 2017 AGM in your calendars, that’s Sunday 19 March at the Galt View Restaurant in Cambridge.

It is with reluctance that we have accepted the resignation of Grant Leonard as our Club Secretary. On behalf of the Club, I would like to thank Grant for his service over the years, and of course we look forward to seeing him and Jean in their beautiful Sunbeam Tiger at future Club events!
This leaves the position of Secretary up for grabs, starting next year. If you feel that you are up to filling Grant’s shoes, or know someone that might, please let me know and the names will be offered for confirmation at the AGM.

And with that, it only leaves me to wish all our members a very Merry Christmas and Holiday Season! With you, I look forward to the challenges and adventures that 2017 might offer us!

Best Regards to every one of you and your families,
John
