Morning Muster



The September breakfast – a return to Bean in the Woods at Ringwood was well attended  and enjoyed by 14 of the guys on a lovely sunny Spring morning.

It was great to see Peter Prowse and Rob Peters back with the group after recent hospital sessions – well done guys! – these two show that you cannot keep a good guy down !

Time:  7:00pm

This Classic Car facility does full restorations on all sorts of Classic and Collectable vehicles.

The tour will start by meeting at their entrance at 7.00pm sharp; ( I suggest you arrive there about 6.45pm to sign in) and we will be guided through the various stages of restoration work, down to the finished gleaming vehicles – ready to be driven away (and subject to your healthy cheque book – you can have one!). The tour should conclude about 9.30pm and we can follow-up with a coffee and chat at nearby Ringwood MacDonald’s – Maroondah Highway – NOW ALSO CONFIRMED.


LAST CALL – Yes this tour is filling up fast – I now have 43 names on the list so act now if you want to be included – both ladies and gents welcome.  

The October meeting will be the last chance to but your name down on this one, or email me with names.  I will place the list of names on the Notice board at the monthly meeting – please check it or confirm with me.

Note there is no cost involved; however there is some walking required and a few stairs, but most of us should be able to handle these in comfort. (They have some seats at key locations.).

NOTE ALSO : Cameras are permitted.

Please arrange your own transport – I suggest car pooling as parking along the service road outside the facility is limited.

PS Late Notice: For those keen motoring folk – there is a MotorClassica event also coming up at The Royal Exhibition Buildings Melbourne – 11-13 October.  If interested see >>

If you have any questions or issues, please discuss with me ASAP, and I will endeavour to assist.

Telstra Museum Tour – Wednesday 3rd and 10th April 2019

This tour was well attend  over the  2 days – with 41 folk (both ladies and gents) enjoying a very interesting tour and “a walk down memory lane” with the numerous past models of the telephone and the system that connects us all, across the world.

(A few former Telstra employees in our group had lots of questions and reflections !)  How things have changed over the years!

Thank you to all who joined us, and I trust you enjoyed the tour also – and thanks for the positive feedback. (See the 2 photos attached).
