Morning Muster

 

JANUARY – MORNING MUSTER (MM)

The MM guys started the year will a great rollup of 14 at Bean in the Woods, and included Rob Peters – thanks to Peter Prouse for the lift. Great to see Rob back on deck.

The team at Bean in the Woods looked after us  very well again.

We also took a minute to think of those across Australia who have lost so much in the Bush Fires and are not as well placed as us, and for us to appreciate how fortunate that we are.

Healey Factory Tour – Wednesday evening 30th October 2019

The Healey Factory tour was attended by 33 and was a great event and enjoyed by all.

Director Rob Rowland and his team – Andrew, Chris and Peter did a fantastic job of showing and explaining the work and processes involved in restoring these classic old vehicles.

This Classic Car facility does full restorations on all sorts of Classic and Collectable vehicles. I have passed on the Clubs appreciation to Rob and his team who all showed their dedication.

 

 

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).
