Log Book Day

4 Jun

Now that the COVID-19 restrictions have eased, the club is planning to hold a Log Book Day on Saturday 27th June from 9 am – 1 pm at the West Croydon & Kilkenny RSL Club.

Obviously, we are still restricted as to the numbers gathered in the club. Therefore, we will ensure that everybody is socially distanced correctly and hand sanatiser will be available. As well as updating log books, we will be issuing members with new membership cards and receipts.

It would be appreciated if members don’t all turn up en masse at 9am and hope that attendance is evenly spread throughout the day. If lots of people do turn up together, a committee member will be on the door to ensure that the restrictions are adhered to.

Merchandise can be purchased on log book day

Barry Young, our Social Secretary, will be running a sausage sizzle, as per normal.

Andrew ‘Macca’ McDonald AKA: Hagrid

19 Mar

News has filtered through, from the Levis MCC, that Andrew McDonald AKA Hagrid or Macca, has passed away. Details are very sketchy at the moment.

He was a member of Classic Owners, he has attended meetings and a couple of rides, but hasn’t been seen over the last few months. I’m unsure how he died and have no details of funeral arrangements.

He has been described as a gentle giant, anyone who met him or stood next to him can attest to this description. Over the past few years, he was active in the Sellicks Beach Races, riding his 1938 Harley Davidson W model at the event and at the Mill to Mill 2017. Many of the promotional posters for Sellicks featured a photo of him riding his Harley. I think this is what he’ll be remembered for, from those with a passing acquaintance with the man. Others may remember his Suzuki GT750, which he rode from his Yankalilla home to our club meetings.

Our sincere condolences go to his family and friends.
