SOCIAL NEWS-Upcoming Events

After being able to get out and about more often in December and a good fun BBQ at the Clubrooms in January, we are proceeding cautiously with some upcoming social events.

Late in January, we are having our annual Indented Heads Seaside Run on Saturday, January 30.  Meet at the Clubrooms at 5pm for a 5.30pm departure.  Bring your own chairs and tables.  BBQs are available.  Organised by Mel and Judi Baldock.

On Thursday, February 18 we have our very popular Fish and Chip Run to Queenscliff. Meet at the Geelong Eastern Gardens rotunda at 4:30 for a 5pm departure. Participants can pay at the meeting point. Cost is $17 for a pre-ordered “double pack” – consisting of two butterfish, chips and potato cake or $12 for a single serving of fish. Or you can make your individual order on arrival at Queenscliff.  Indicate your intention to participate at the January or February monthly meeting or phone Gordon Reynolds on 53301810/0413493438 or gordonshirleyr@gmail.com. However, we will be able to cater for a few extra members who turn up on the day.

On Thursday February 25th, we are having another Square Rigger Run.   Meet at The Flying Brick Cider Cafe at 10.30 for coffee at 11am. This will be followed by a short drive to a picnic place. BYO picnic lunch, drinks and chairs. As the Flying Brick still have Covid-19 restrictions we are limiting this run to pre 1958 model MGs.
You MUST BOOK for this run by texting John Roker on 0417 537 603 or email at jroker@mac.com.

All of our events are always shown on our website, so please continue to check our website to see what is planned, as Covid may force us to make late changes,

Vale – Richard Harvey

Vale, Richard Harvey

Richard passed away at home in Torquay earlier this month. After a career with Australia Post, Richard became an active community member in Torquay. A very private person, he was however well known through his association with Yoga and his love of a short black coffee with a jam scone most days at the SANDBAR Restaurant in Gilbert Street, Torquay.

It was here his interest in MGs was encouraged and resulted in his purchase of a red MG TF ( possibly from Peter Smith?) approximately two years ago. He joined our MGCC that year.

Although his battle with cancer prevented him from being more active in club events, he read every word of each of the GTorque magazines and would discuss the article with other interested car patrons at Sandbar.

Such was his fellowship with the Torquay community, that the owners of Sandbar hosted a wake for Richard, featuring, of course, scones with jam and cream. Our club’s respects were noted.

(thanks to Peter Cribb for this info).
