The final event of the year saw a great rollup of cars at Ross, for our annual Christmas party. Terrific food from our caterers, lots of fun, and even some 'serenading' from Roger Ryan on the harmonica!
Southern members recently attended runs on two consecutive days; first the Shannons 'Take Your Tops Off for Breast Cancer' fund raiser, and then the 'Britain to Bunna' run to Triabunna. Both events were well attended, and the weather was mostly very kind.
The club recently held a Thank-You luncheon for all the organizers and volunteers who worked so hard to make the 2015 National Rally the success it was. Held at the 'Happy Chef' in Longford, Certificates of appreciation were also presented.
EuroSport 2015 was staged at the National Automobile Museum in Launceston recently. A small number of Jaguars attended, and Danny Taylor provided these photos (unfortunately late in the day, when many cars had left.)
A good selection of cars attended in brilliant sunny weather. We started with coffee at the Deloraine Deli, then drove in convoy to Burnie, to the the Emu Valley Rhododendron gardens for a picnic lunch. We were guided to the 'Jaguar Pavilion' for the visit, set among acres of magnificent rhodos. It was great to see some new faces along, including Chris and Liz Vernon, from near Wynyard, and Les Taylor from Mole Creek.
After lunch and a good walk around, we split up, with some going to the nearby Helyer whisky distillery, and others to the Makers Workshop in Burnie. A great day, with great company.
The Oatlands RSL club hosted our 2015 AGM, and it was a most successful event. As usual there was the great food from the local hospital auxilliary, and the venue proved much more satisfactory for a meeting. Major changes to the committee (see the News page for more details.)
A weekend away in Westbury, at Danny and Amanda Taylor's Westbury Gingerbread Cottages. On Sunday, there was a visit to Chas Kelly to view his vast collection of cars, and also to Roger Richardson in Devonport to view some more fine cars.
The annual PVCC 'Picnic at Ross' event started out cold, but later turned bright and sunny. A great collection of cars of all types, including, of course, quite a few JCCT cars. Afterwards, a short presentation of the State Rally awards was made at the motor museum of Ian and Judith Cummins.
