Firstly we have the Hororata and Vincent County rallies both coming up this coming weekend. No doubt we will have delegations going in both directions and I know Rowdy is not going to either of them so I am happy to coordinate whose going and when.

Presidents Report;

Hi TTAG club members.

Our Xmas party has come and gone with a bang, more fireworks, plenty of happy children. The band rocked our fire drum glowed, and quite a lot of dancing took place.

Sorry if you missed the party.

Michael had some good news for us at our committee meeting, our Rally ran at a profit of several thousand dollars. This was a surprise to all as we had expected to run our 20th at a loss.

Well done to everybody for putting in the effort. 1,200 paying customers through the gate.

At the meeting we passed a few of our annual donations, including, Rescue helicopter, Saint Johns, Timaru, Temuka and Geraldine food banks. We also supported the Bronz toy run appeal

On Sunday with a donation.

This newsletter will not be up to the usual standard as Maxine has tipped out of the saddle and bravely stuck her ankle under her iron horse to stop it getting scratched on the tar seal.

The result being a crushed ankle. Yes the whole club now knows even though you wished to keep it a secret. We all wish you a speedy and full recovery Max.

Merry Xmas and a happy safe New Year to you and your families.
