Message from Administrator: Andrew Brown

Hi to all our Club members and friends of the Club,
This version of this
month’s Track Torque announcement is late because I’ve had an issue
with the “email send out” from the website.

So I apologize for the late email but many of you have already visited
the site and viewed the Newsletter which shows your interest…thank you.

Re-sending this as a new post offers me the opportunity to
comment about the General Meeting and how the speaker this month,
Danny Frigerio (Solicitor from Maurice Blackburn, Wangaratta) was a
terrific speaker.

Danny covered many of the questions surrounding the
value of Club Incorporation and the protections Incorporation gives all
members. (Check the Meeting Minutes next month for more detailed notes).
A big thanks to Danny for taking the time to visit and speak to us.

After a busy August September, this last month has been a bit quieter which
is reflected in the Newsletter’s size. It still has terrific info though.

The annual Track Clearing weekend is in a week and a half’s time. Noel Ham reminded us that this is an important event on our calendar as it is such an essential service we
offer our community. This time, we will be joining with a group from Mansfield
on Saturday evening, staying at Kings Hut, Mt Cobbler. Chris Clarke from
Parks Victoria will be leading us again so it will be a well run and enjoyable event.

Another point to remember about this event is we need people to clear the tracks.
Not everyone will wielding chainsaws…people are needed to clear the tracks of the cut wood. Gloves, good boots (best if steel capped) and a good hat are essential but
the most important thing is to be there ready to help.

We’ve had terrific turn ups previously, let’s make this a cracker. (Trip details in Track Torque, Pre-Trip reports.)

Till next month,
