During this lockdown time we hope everyone is keeping safe. Make some time to head to the garage and get that nagging job done on your car so that when we can all get back together you're all set to go.
Meetings are obviously not happening at the moment. Please monitor our facebook page for updates and if you're not receing the email bulletins then please email me and I'll add you to our mailing list
If you need a Club Permit signed then remember Charlie can sign for you in the West, Shane is out in the South East, Mark is up Ballarat Direction and I'm out East. If you want to mail it to us please make sure you send a stamped self addressed envelope to return it in
I hope everyone had a great Nationals in Wodonga over the Easter weekend. For myself it was full of events (car related) and would like to thank
all the people who helped us getting back on the road. Special thanks go to Yvonne Field, who at a moment’s notice from her son David, was
willing to travel from Wagga Wagga, to Canberra to pick up parts and then to Gundagai to drop them off to myself and John.
We greatly appreciated the gesture by Yvonne, who told us the next day “We are a Pontiac family, this is what we do.” What a great thought and words to live by. How easy life would be if we could apply these words to everyday life, friends and family. To some, it comes naturally, and I hope this thought travels through the car community and further. Once again, thank you Yvonne.
The most recent quarterly meeting was held at Aspley on Saturday 15 June. The next will be held in September.

With the 2019 Pontiac Nationals out of the way, I would personally like to thank the Victorian Chapter for a fantastic event, and well done to all those involved in the 4 days of fun. Congratulations to all those who received a trophy and participated.
5 people from SA made the journey across to Woodonga and both crews left with some silverware (of sorts) to remember the trip to ‘The Nats’. I must also thank Deanne & Geoff Vardon for the hassle-free trip across and for running me around, back and
forth across the border to my hotel for the weekend. It was much appreciated. I must say, I had a great weekend.
Our April meeting was held a week early on a sunny Sunday afternoon in the Himeji Gardens on South Tce in the city under a shady Oak tree. I think all those who made the effort to attend enjoyed the atmosphere and the pleasant change of scenery. The clubs next meeting is the AGM held at Richard & Liz McMillan’s house on 15 June. It is also an excellent opportunity to renew your membership and have your log books brought up to date. Please, if you can’t attend, let one of our committee members know so arrangements can be made for catering purposes.
That’s all from me, see you on the road.
Meetings at the Como Hotel, first Tuesday of every month. 7pm for a meal or 8pm meeting starts.
