BOCWA Presidents Report July 2018


Our Club continues to remain successful in times that are proving to be very difficult to similar clubs throughout Australia.

Club finances are in a very healthy state and therefore the Committee has decided that no increase in fees are necessary for the forthcoming year.

The Committee have again been very supportive and have worked extremely hard to ensure our Club remains viable and actively involved in events.  I would like to express my appreciation for their efforts and dedication.

Membership has increased slightly during year and we have welcomed new members:-

Damian Flynn                      1924 Tourer

Michael Skehan                  1952 Special Delux

Adrian Vandenberg           Various Buicks – 1925 Tourer, 1981 Park Sedan, 1992 Roadmaster.

Terry Hills                     )       1926 Tourer

Kelly & Derek Gibson)

Graham Hickinbotham     1962 Skylark Convertible

The procedure for “impromptu runs” has proved to be a great success and the members who have embraced this system appear to be using it in the manner for which it is intended.

Code 404 continues to be of some concern with uncertainty in some areas.  The situation of Club Licensing Inspectors has still not ben resolved.  GST on imported items under $1,000 still is a mystery and changing rules to vehicle imports are a concern.

Hopefully these problems will disappear in the near future with outcomes positive to the historic vehicle movement.

Finally thanks to our members – you are a fabulous group of people and it is a pleasure to be associated with you all.
