January 2012 Presidents Thankyou

Club President Adam Bourke has written the following article to thank everyone for their help at the 2012 Junior Top Guns Double Header.

Well, what a great two nights of racing.

I would like to thank you all for the efforts that were put in to get the meeting up and running. A big thank you to those that helped put on the two nights to make the meetings run as smooth as possible.

To all our sponsors that helped us at one of the biggest Top Guns since its inception, I thank you for your help and I look forward to working with you all again in 2013 to make these 2 meetings even bigger.

To our members who helped in the working bees to make the whole place look fantastic for the meeting, to those that helped out on the night with tyre marking, flagging and general running around, thank you. This is what being a member of the club means.

I have to admit the presentation was great fun, although as I write this I am nearly falling asleep on the keyboard.

The canteen apparently never stopped, so to those ladies that helped run this, I thank you for your fantastic efforts. Sam, who was up early Friday, stayed till late, then was up at 6.30am Saturday, and we left the club at 2.30am Sunday. You did a great job.

To Michelle and Regina on the grid, a great job. David and Guy for doing the technical side. Vern, the trophies were awesome. Steve G for organising the helpers, thank you. To the Stewards, while we had a few tense moments, it all went well in the end. The boys in the lap box, David, Jack and Mark, great job. Ian (Doc) had a busy 2 nights, but all were ok.

Paul, some fantastic starts, and to the stewards, what a top effort, and on the whole, a quiet meeting for hearings, considering the numbers. That was great.

I wish Sharon and Wayne all the best for the future and thank them for the 7 years, 2 months, 3 weeks, 2 days, 4 hours, 10 minutes and 26 seconds that they put into the club. We will miss you.
