Drive-It/Old Car Day Event.
There is an invitation to get your Classic vehicles out and take them for a drive and end up at a very scenic reserve in the Barossa.

You are encouraged to be involved in Drive it/Old Car Day on Wednesday September 1st.

The Gawler Veteran Vintage and Classic Vehicle Club is running the annual event at Bethany Reserve as per the following the information

VECSA Scalextric Racing Champion

This question will be answered on
Sunday 18th July from 10:30 till 12:30 at Scalex World, 3 Paul St Ridgehaven.

We will be having a great time finding out who the club Champion will be.

To be part of the action there will be a cost of $25 which includes a hire car and controller. If you have your own car, then there will be a $5 reduction on the price.

We need potential champions to pay a deposit of $15 by the June club meeting as we must have a minimum of twelve participants to make it worthwhile for Scalex World to open for us.

I hope to see you there going hard for the championship.

Some of the members will be going for lunch afterwards at The Pickled Duck to celebrate and everyone that comes along is welcome to join them.

An invitation to all members to take a drive to club member Pete and Moira Toome's place at Moonta to watch the Copper Coast Cavalcade and then stay for lunch on Sunday 23rd May.
The Cavalcade passes through the main street around 10.00 am.
In the past, we have met at the Cavan Hotel carpark at 7.30 am for departure soon after.
If interested, please BYO everything and let Ken Rowlands know so that the Toome's have an idea of numbers.
Check your email or with Graham for details about the address.

If you have the time you are welcome to come along this Saturday morning to farewell our intrepid members as they head off on RATEX 2021 to Uluru and back. This will be two weeks of fun and great times being had while sharing their love of the VW brand and raising money for Shake It Up Australia. They will be assembling from 8:00 am for 9:00 am leave at the Cavan Hotel carpark, Port Wakefield Road, Cavan.

VW Beetle class 11 seems to just get bigger in the USA. Absolute opposite end of the scale compared to the 250 kph Trophy Trucks and Buggies. Ps you need a good back to drive a Bug in an off road race.
