I (together with Wayne, my husband) joined the MG Car Club of SA in 2006, when we purchased our first MG, a 1960 MGA from Bazz.
I served as the Club Treasurer for nearly 4 years when Wayne was President, and I was responsible for setting up the Club’s financial management system.
Why not come along on a journey of discovery and enjoy a day in Strathalbyn and Langhorne Creek.
We begin at 11.00AM at the beautiful and very old “Gasworks Cottages“.
I worked there for nearly 30 years, involved in mathematical modelling of aircraft and missile defence systems and then on to the administrative management system used in the Administration of the Salisbury site.
I have seen computers evolve from machines the size of the Clubrooms to an equally powerful device that now goes in my handbag.
The Yarra Valley National Meeting was incredibly well organised and their motto was a “Fun and Friendly” meet which rang true throughout.
Friday night’s welcoming Noggin and Natter was fun, and featured Rockercover Racing which we girls are still trying to work out what they represented! Saturday was the Concourse and Saturday night a social Barbecue.
I have a number of sewing machines, including a Pfaff embroidery machine and a very old, but still very efficient, Pfaff industrial sewing machine.
When it came to restoring our first MG, I was able to use my electronics training to do all the wiring.
We are glad to report the cars purred along beautifully travelling in excess of 2,700 kms.
The only incidents being a flat tyre on Steve Spong’s car and a broken exhaust for Bryan Turner which were easily repaired.
This was mainly because of my background as a computer scientist, so here goes for my history outside the Car Club.
