HSAA Newsletter

#77 July / August 2017

Hi everyone,

Welcome All,

Well the club AGM for this year is over and I would like to thank all
those who put their hands up for positions on the committee and other
official positions, I feel that we have a well placed platform to work
with for the next 12 months.

What a fantastic turn out at our last Boonah club day 22cars and 3
extra drivers turned up and the day went of without a hitch, and a
special thanks to those who helped out doing the various jobs that
have to be done on the day. Thanks to Karyen Crompton who helped
the girls on the BBQ that day and the extra person made things a whole
lot easier.

For those who may have noticed on our web site Bob Turnbull's Alfa powered car has been sold I am happy to say that the car is now in my possession and of course stays in the club.
This years Christmas party has been organised by my wife Dianne and will be held at the Grange Bowls Club the same as last year, cost is $30 per head and is to be paid prior to the date which is the 26th November and the club will also put on a reasonable bar tab for those who wish to partake.

Our club newsletter is once again up to its great standard thanks to Bruce Bool I feel it has to be the best newsletter of all the club ones that I have seen and I have seen most of them.
Cheers until next newsletter
Lionel Elfverson
