This Months President’s Report: – 

Hi Everyone,

Hope everyone got over all the rain we had in the last couple of weeks.  Have noticed it’s a bit lighter in the evening now and its a wee bit warmer.  Most of the rally stuff has been done only a few things left to do.  I Welcome, Lyn Stringer to the club.

Our next meeting is on the 20th of August at the Waihao Forks Hotel.  Leaving the caltex garage at the creek, South end of Timaru at midday.

Check out our TTag club website, ” Ttag.org.nz ”  Tash is doing a great job of keeping it up to date. Give her some feed back and any good photo’s you might take at our events.

Also check out our TTag facebook page.

Speaking of input, I realize we don’t do a lot of riding at this time of year, but if you do I want stories for the newsletter, a half to one page would be good.

The organizing of our Magpie Madness Rally is progressing well, with most things finalized thanks to Mary, Tash in particular.

If you are interested in going to the Mt Cook Rally on the 7th of October talk to Rowdy he’s a regular knows all the detail on accomodation etc.

The club wishes Liz Watson a successful operation and a speedy recovery.
