An Update on the Club and its Events in September, 2020
With the easing of COVID 19 restrictions in NSW over the last couple of months, we have been able to recommence many of our Club activities while strictly following the government’s COVID-19 guidelines.
Monthly Members’ Gatherings
During the COVID lockdown, monthly members’ gatherings were conducted using Zoom. However, with the easing of restriction we have recommenced in person gatherings at a new venue, the Strathfield Golf Club.
This modern and stylish venue has the capacity for us to hold our meetings and enjoy a pre-meeting meal in a COVID-safe environment. The Strathfield Golf Club has been popular with members and our monthly members gatherings will continue to be held there on the 2nd Tuesday of the month.
Most club events, including the monthly mid-week muster, Illawarra Registrar and monthly Club runs have recommenced. The board and club officials are ensuring that these events follow current government guidelines. All attendees to these runs need to be recorded and contact details provided.
The Board is exploring ways for our annual Concours and Display Day to go ahead on 18 October 2020, albeit in slightly different format.
Unfortunately, the decision has been made to cancel the 2021 MG National Meeting in Albury Wodonga. However, members are being encouraged to retain their accommodation bookings and if circumstances allow, a Club run to Albury Wodonga will be organised over the Easter weekend in 2021 in place of the National Meeting.
With the commencement of COVID restrictions, the board made the decision to cancel the bulk printing and mail out of Opposite Lock and instead to send the magazine in electronic form via email. At the current time, this method of distribution will continue. The board will review this as circumstances allow.
As always, we welcome and and all feedback. Please don’t hesitate to call me or email me and I will respond to you as quickly as I can.
All the very best and keep healthy,
