2021-07 Poker Run25Photos
This Sunday July 18th event is our first poker run for many years. These are always a challenge because large parking areas are needed for each deal. Sunday football stole some of the better carparks, but we persisted. Thirty-seven people attended and the winners of a box of chocolates each were Meagan Garland (three kings), Barb Elphick (three jacks) and Mick Walton (three 10s). Lunch was at The Beatty Hotel at East Gresford and was very well-received by members. Rusty Bucket played many '60s and '70s covers and were very popular with members.

MCMA supported Logan’s Car Show and Family Fun Day, at Jefferson Park Aberdeen, on Sunday July 25th. This was a fund-raiser to support a very worthy cause (Logan).

Our club won a few trophies - Alex's Corvette for Best American and Barry's Peugeot for Best European. Members also won a few raffle prizes.

Garry, Sue, Brett and Margaret extended their trip to include the tablelands and slopes reporting great weather and a great time.

Organisation and registration, given the new COVID-19 restrictions, were excellent. Disappointingly, the same could not be said for the presentation and egress from The Foreshore Park. Eight MCMA vehicles (5 British, 1 French, 1 Italian and 1 German) were displayed with club banners and flags.
