Hi All, just a quick note to wish you all a (belated) Merry Chrimbo and best wishes for the new year. 2016 is already shaping up to be an excellent year in terms of events, with the LCOA sponsoring- The Motoretto Giro regularity trial (Jan 31st happening simultaneously in most states) , The Inaugural National Lambretta Jamboree (to be held in Canberra 11-13 March) The Great South West Tour (WA date TBC) , The Australian Classic Scooter Mille (WA around 29th Sept TBC) and of course The Australian National Classic Scooter Rally (WA 30 Sept- 3rd Oct).
The club will will of course also endeavour to expand the toolkits and provide as many other member benefits as possible.
Next, for a few reasons our esteemed Editor in Chief of the Pacemaker Newsletter, Phil Kellow has shifted from the traditional format to a blog, which as far as I can understand is not too much different, his fantastic layout will be the same, but content will/can be added continuously rather than produced in issues. It also provides better opportunity for the membership to contribute directly. The new blog is already online and can be viewed at pacemakerlcoa.com
This email (and my other emails) goes out to specifically inform members who are not on Facebook, some of you I am sure are perfectly internet savvy and just hate Facebook (which is perfectly understandable), and some I imagine are challenged a bit by the whole interweb thingamy. Please feel free to provide feedback if you don’t feel the club is providing you with relevant up to date info in a format that you would prefer, and we will look into how we can accommodate you.
Another thing is there are a few states where one member or state rep is trying to hold things together, organise rides, sort club plates, etc by the skin of their teeth. If you would like to see more happening or something different, whatever, get involved. Contact your state rep/committee member (or if you don’t know who they are contact me). Whether it is a small or large event/idea, we need to hear from you.
Finally, as the Facebook page (and for that matter this email list I guess), is a member benefit, if you have not payed up your subs there will be a cull soonish (I have a few days off now, so sooner rather than later), get onto it!!
Again seasons greetings to all, wishing you and your families all the best for the coming year.
Max and the committee
