Woodside Run Jul 2014 Woodside Run Jul 2014
Woodside Run - Sunday 20th July 2014 From Run Reporter: Barry Scrimshaw The weather was cold but with the right amount of clothing it was tolerable. Great – no rain! The Chev Club was also having a BBQ breakfast at the clubrooms as we started to arrive . About 16 vehicles left the clubrooms bound for Gum Reserve for morning tea. From South Road and through town my first stop for us was at a Pastry shop near Kmart on Glynburn Road and then onto the Gums Reserve. A very nice place, having never been there before. From there up through the hills to Woodside Oval and another Bakery stop with Brian still complaining about the cold! My "new-to-me" 21 year old Mazda was going very well and had a very good heater. Some members who live up in the hills had joined us …
30 YEAR LUNCH 30 YEAR LUNCH
30 YEAR LUNCH RUN REPORT It was a clear sunny day as we left home just before 9 a.m. but as the morning progressed it became overcast. We picked up our friend Marlene Wigzell and headed down the Freeway, Portrush Rd and Hampstead Rd. Along Portrush Rd we were “tooted” by an elderly lady in a silver Micra who turned up Magill Rd. We pro-ceeded along Bridge Rd and Main North Rd to Carisbrooke Park where we arrived at 9.45 a.m. as the traffic increased. There was a count of 55 vehicles at this stage. The same lady who we had seen earlier arrived in a very nice green 2½ litre Riley. There was a good selection and range of vehicles and it was good to see Bruce in the only Bedford truck. We left at 10. 55 a.m. and some had moved off before then, road conditions were not too…

2016 Xmas in June club run Christmas in June club run We met at the Clubrooms; the Chrysler Club was having a log book day. About 20 vehicles headed off to face the notorious South Road Jungle, roadworks all the way to the Port River Expressway. We headed down the expressway onto Eastern Parade and onto Garden Island for Smoko. There were no porpoises that day but plenty of cormorants, canoers and fishermen around the island. After Smoko, we headed down the very bumpy Grand Trunkway and then over the Tom Diver Bridge to the Boat House Tavern for lunch. We all had a great lunch, sweets and drinks. Thanks to the Boat House Tavern. Edd Gray. To all members of the AAA club, Thank you for making my time as Club Captain enjoyable and thanks for all the help with events…

2016 Mt Bold Resivoir 2016 Mt Bold Resivoir
AAAC Club Run, Mt Bold Reservoir, Echunga   The forecast was for a very windy and wet day which perhaps kept numbers down as only 13 cars were on the run. With a lot of dust in the air, we arrived at the clubrooms to find a few members of the Mercedes Club ready to set off on a run to the Waite Arboretum. They thought that our Mercedes was an extra to join their group until we advised them otherwise. We set off along Cross Road and Marion Road and then up Flagstaff Road. The wind was quite strong as we got to Clarendon and as we drove into Mt Bold Reservoir. The road was littered with some bits of tree branches and lots of blossom. I was glad when we got past the big gum trees as I had visions of larger boughs dropping. Just after we arrived at Mt Bold Reservoir for our mo…

Nov 2014 Goldfields run Nov 2014 Goldfields run
GOLDFIELDS RUN 23rd November 2015   On the Saturday night we were still undecided as to whether or not to go on the run due to the predicted humid 30 degree temperature and we had lots of jobs to do around the house. We decided to toss a coin, heads we go and tails we work on the house - well it looks like heads won. With that decision made do we take the Oxford or the modern? That was an easy one, be lazy and keep cool in the modern. We left home around 8.45am, stopped for petrol and the Sunday Mail and arrived at the clubrooms to see a large number of club cars gleaming in the morning sunshine. After a few seconds of feeling guilty for not bringing the Oxford we signed in and collected our run sheets. I did hear someone mention it was going to be quite an interesting and scen…
October 2014 Run to Greenoch October 2014 Run to Greenoch
Greenock Aviation Museum Run - 26th October 2014 As this outing was so well supported by our club, I thought you might be interested to more about how the whole outing unfolded, but with some parts from behind the scenes. Malcolm Goldsworthy. Our run to Greenock was attended by 90 people in 42 vehicles including Bruce’s Bedford tipper truck. The Morris Car Club had invited our club to a jointly organised run to Greenock’s oval, for morning tea and a get together chat. This was followed by a short run from there to the Aviation Museum and lunch. To my knowledge it was the first joint run for these two car clubs. We both embraced this joint venture, giving it our every support. I would like to thank the organisers, Robin and Barry Cumming, and Carly Goldsworthy for …
Old Car Day 2014 Old Car Day 2014
Old Cars Day 2014 Old Cars Day Run to the Bethany Reserve, where a group of clubs displayed 100 vehicles. We joined the Gawler Veteran, Vintage, and Classic car clubs venue, and placed our old cars on show. The day for us was not kind, as it was raining before we left home and rained several times on the way there. For two of those times it was quite heavy, so we wondered how many others would brave this sort of weather and bring their cars out. While at the Bethany Reserve there was one light shower near opening time, but that did not last long at all. For the rest of the day it got better, and included the sun shining for most of the later afternoon. The Bethany venue is always scenic, and has excellent onsite amenities, it is a good choice for this type of function. The large shelt…

Salisbury Xmas Parade 2014 Salisbury Xmas Parade 2014
SALISBURY CHRISTMAS PARADE Sat. 15-11-2014.   For the third year now I have organised the cars and decorations to take part in the Salisbury Christmas Parade. For the third year our Club and members have supported this community event, by donating their time and vehicles. We decorate our cars for the pleasure of the children, but include the people who line the route of the Parade. I understand up to 8.000 people came to see this well supported event. Eight highly decorated cars mainly from our club would enter as one float in the Salisbury Christmas Parade. Our cars would share the one thousand dollars it took to fund our car decorations, the helium balloons, the balloons on sticks, and the lollies that were handed to the children as we went along. Colin Martin from Martin…
