Happy New Year to all our members. We are now half way through January with lots of interesting events being planned for 2017!
Our post-Christmas Social Run on Sunday 15th was well attended and the competitive side of our entrants was very much to the fore at the various challenges in Mondello. Many thanks to the staff in Mondello who allowed us use their facilities for a fun event for our members. We were very lucky with a mild rain-free day and the excellent lunch in Killashee House set the stage for our 2017 events.
We have moved the date of our AGM from 2nd April to the following Sunday, 9th April and will advise details of this when we are sending out the paperwork for the AGM. We plan to have a Run to the venue, but more of that next month.
A new event in this coming year is a rally specifically for cars of the 1930’s era. This event is set for Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th May and will be based in the historic Pembroke Hotel, Kilkenny. As we are limited by the amount of bedrooms available, entry is restricted to the first 50 paid entries received. The entry form will be available very soon.
On Sunday 14th May the place to be is the IVVCC Festival of Transport in Punchestown Racecourse and we look forward to seeing all the affiliate clubs and transport interests taking part in this particular event.
The entry forms for the IVVCC International Gordon Bennett event are available and early entry is recommended as, yet again, availability of bedrooms in Mount Wolseley are limited.
We look forward to seeing you and your lovely cars during 2017.
