    Note change of date! A real treat Andy Fox has agreed to allow his car collection (and farm) to be the venue for our AGM. You will need to bring your picnic chairs with you. We are heading to Waiau a journey of one hour however the last 5 ks are shingle (but nice shingle) no overtaking and keep distances to avoid dust. So we will understand if you bring a bland brand. Bring a picnic lunch and wander about the cars and memorabilia sheds. After the AGM the committee will shout afternoon tea. On wet or fine! The club is going to make a donation to Andy who is fund raising for the Waiau Fire Brigade, for a jaws of life machine (some terrible events on the inland road of late!), members are welcome to donate a gold coin if they wish. Please sign the visitors book.

    If there are sufficient Triumphs they will set an area aside for display cars. Driver and vehicle free and passengers $10 each. A fund raiser.

    Ticket Information:Adult admission (under 15's free): $10.00.
    Car and driver of display cars free.
    The Ellesmere Vintage Fair is hosted by the Ellesmere Vintage Club Inc, raising funds for Abbeyfield Ellesmere.
    On show will be vintage and classic tractors by the hundreds, dating from the early 1900’s, up to present day machines. A popular drawcard will be the forerunners to the tractor, the steam traction engine. We hope to have at least a dozen of these machines in attendance and will put on working displays including threshing and heavy haulage. Veteran, vintage and classic cars and trucks from the local area and further afield will come together at the Leeston Showgrounds, a petrol head’s dream.
    A variety of food and craft stalls will create a market atmosphere along with children's entertainment.
    Abbeyfield Ellesmere is a 100% community owned housing complex for those who are in between the independence levels of living at home independently and going into a care facility.
    After 8 years of planning by local dedicated volunteers, construction finally began in 2016. The funds we are raising will go towards the fitting out of the rooms, readying them for our local elderly residents.

    TBATBA

    You are asked to keep this date free as the Rotary Club of Ashburton Plains are once again organising our annual Classic car run. This event is part of the Ashburton Wheels Week festivities, following the swap meet to be held the previous day.

    This is the 25th running of this hugely popular event and we ask you for your participation. Entry fee will be $20/car with profits going to a local organisation (yet to be confirmed.) The event will start at the Ashburton Showground’s at 10.15am and will finish in the Hinds area approximately 4 hours later. Registrations will be from 8.30am.

    You will be given instructions like a car trial, and carry on the designated route to finish. There will be no shingle roads and the instructions will be very straight forward.

    There will be prizes for various vehicles that will be chosen by our independent judges, Roger Hart and Bernard Egan, two very well known identities in the Mid Canterbury area who have had many years experience of classic cars. They will also pick a concours d’Elegance winner.

    As this is the 25th Anniversary of this event we are returning to the original venue “Coldstream”, which was hosted by Sue and the Late Joe Studholme. We are fortunate that the next generation Annie & Alistair Studholme have agreed to offer their property for this Anniversary year.

    We ask all Car Clubs to make their members aware of this fun low key event in your club bulletins or notice board.

    meet at PMH, apparently even more interesting than the Port Levy run. Though the road is slightly goat-track in places, the steep bits at both ends are sealed. The run is weather dependent on the off-chance we get a low-cloud on the day. No point if you can’t see the spectacular views! Organisers Bill and Cynthia Cockram
