Good morning to you all after such beautiful weather over Labour Weekend.

I hope you got to relax and take a breather out from the busyness of life that seems to overtake us all at times.

Dave and I have been absent from the past two runs, but I really appreciate that as Club Captain there are those of you out there in our Club ready and willing to step up on the day , and look after all you wonderful Club Members who participated in those runs. Thank you Bruce and Jo, and Steve Pascoe & Neville our President.

Quite a few of our Club Members have enjoyed or are right now enjoying a trip away. We would all love to hear all about your adventures and highlights, so maybe you could contact Peter Davies our Editor with your stories and photos for our up and coming Magazines.

We have our Whangarei & Lower North Trip coming up 7th – 12th November.

The events Committee has been putting a lot of time and effort into making this a wonderful trip for us all to enjoy. The accommodation cut-off date is now closed but if you really still want to join us you are most welcome to do so, and arrange your own accommodation. Please notify me if you are intending to do this.

For those of you who are not able to make this Trip there is a 2018 Jaguar Enthusiasts Club & XK Jaguar Anniversary Weekend happening in Tauranga on weekend of 10th & 11th November. For further details you can contact the Secretary of the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club:

The end of the Year is fast approaching so please put 1st Dec in your diaries as this is our Christmas luncheon together at the Tauranga Club in Devonport towers.

This reminds me of a joke I heard recently.

What did Adam say the day before Christmas –“It’s Christmas Eve”!

Looking forward to seeing you all at our up and coming events.

Take care, and pace yourselves over this busy season.

As they say “take time to stop and smell the roses.”

Take care,
