Tuesday 12th September - President Fran's Message:  
Where has the week gone?
Well I embarked on a roadie, Wanaka to the super city Tamaki Makaurau to deliver a car. What a trip, the 5th time I have driven the 1500km trip north in 15 years.  I loved it. The west coast was a cruisy drive where I encountered only 5 cars in both directions, all the way to Greymouth. Can you believe it? I missed all the super bad weather and  enjoyed the beautiful bush,  Bruces Bay , mountain glimpses and the rural scape of Murchison to Blenheim. It was overnight in Blenheim then to Wellington (good ferry trip), then Taupo. En route the BAD WEATHER caught up, some snow around Tukino then heavy, torrential rain. It was scary driving especially with the huge trucks that travelled Highway 1. Anyway the next day was the push north where the traffic was queued all the way from Cambridge to Auckland! It was interesting to note that the Rotary Wheel was prevalent in several small towns on the way.  
Now back at Golf Club this week, deadline for Apologies, is Monday 8pm.
Coming  up  
Tititea Lodge maintenance work weekend 16& 17 September, Blood Pressure Campaign 10th October, Duck Race 21 October , Book Sale 1,11,12 November .
Thanks to our Sponsors & Supporters for their long term generosity without which we would be unable to hold these fundraising & service projects.
