CALENDAR OF EVENTS

Contact: Peter Telfer 0427 526 938
26 FEBRUARY - TUESDAY CRAFT NIGHT/TECH NIGHT “WIPERS AND WASHERS”
Do you remember those vacuum wipers that didn't work when you put your foot down? (and went crazy when you took your foot off). And those washers with a foot pump or a hand pump that you had to pump multiple times before they even dribbled?
Some of you more senior members may remember hand operated wipers.
Bring along as many styles of wiper motors, arms, blades, pumps, bottles, bags,
switches, etc. that you can find in your personal inventory.
Be at the clubrooms around 7pm, so we can be set up for a 7.30pm start.
Please remember to bring something for supper (as well as your appetite).
Visitors are always welcome. Ladies are welcome, to participate in Tech Night or in Craft Night. If you haven't been before, come along, and bring your sense of humour.
REMEMBER TO WEAR YOUR NAME BADGE, TO GET A FREE CHOCOLATE FROG.

16 MARCH - SATURDAY SMELL THE ROSES DAY
Starting from our clubrooms at 10.30am, this run will be just great for our very old motorbikes. We can have a lazy cruise around past 13th Beach, and then through Ocean Grove to get us to Manuel Vella’s place on the Bellarine Highway.
Here we will be entertained and possibly oil stained as well by the project that Manny has been working on this last year or so. We can enjoy a cuppa while we ponder at the workmanship of this project that will grace our roads very soon.

19 MARCH - TUESDAY COMMITTEE MEETING
21 MARCH - THURSDAY TINKER DAY.
Starting at 10am from O’Brien’s Road, just north of the Ring Road overpass, to the right of Bacchus Marsh Road. It’s a big industrial road with room to meet and park before heading off to Bacchus Marsh. Our goal is the Glider Museum on the left just before Bacchus Marsh, about 40kms away, so let’s car-pool and use cars that can do highway speeds.
Leave your car at our place (20 Newton Ave Bell Post Hill) and car pool from there. Barb and I can take two people. Volunteers staff the museum and visitor donations are the only income for the restoration work. A donation of $7/person has been nominated, which includes a coffee/tea and a very good demonstration on how volunteers restore very unique gliders and maintain the display. No chairs needed - they have plenty. So just bring you mugs and food.
Please call me for more details.

The conversation is likely to wander all over the place, just like our early steering systems. Tie rods may need adjusting to make us track truly again!

Please remember something for supper.
