Nice guy or what!
And he is returning to Sydney, with PeterRX5 on here' Mazda chicken cooker.
( all waiting for the big announcement Peter!!)
On Saturday night we are hosting James for the evening at The Gap.
If any of the Qld Z folk would like to meet James, say G'day, and talk engines, or other stuff, let me know.
Looking at late till bit after sundown.
If you feel need to eat or drink, bring a snag or two, and a couple of what you like.
We can fire up the dead cow final processor device.

No Jake, he wont punch, just kick!
It's just a light informal G'day and welcome to Brisbane, james prob arrive about 4 pm, so if you can rock up about 4.30, that'd be good. The day run will probably be all over by then anyway!
ZCCQ doing a run? Lofty Drews, a veritable legendary rally navigator, in Africa!
It's a crying shame they dont publish these sorts of things on their website, otherwise they could get newbies interested in such stuff. There was a local Brisbane Swap Meet, a few months back, again, nothing?
Now, i dare anyone to look up where when and what times the official club
monthly or bi monthly meetings are? Used to be at Shannons in West End?
Theres a bit of a feed and a drink thing at a local pub, is this a club meeting night?

But the runs are under CAMS rules and you have to be a member of a cams club . So it makes it difficult to invite outsiders to events.
Even all the passengers in the car have to belong to a CAMS car club, if they are over 18. This also includes the swap meet for insurance perposes. Not sure about the pub thing. It is new and only social , best CAMS doesn't know about that. God only knows what they would have to say about that.
But notice of meetings only goes out through the club's mailing list. I think and I am not sure, but it costs money each time a change is made to the ZCCQ web site.

Things like the swap meet could be a big event with outside participation and I for one, would have come and bought a swag of parts to sell with me, along with two other mates. Especially if you open it up to be a classic Japanese swap meet, like the 7s club has done with their show.

BUT, THAT is the biggest load of HORSE SH1T i have ever heard.
Plenty, and i mean plenty of other CAMS affiliated clubs do not adopt that load of drivel!
It is quite obvious that some elitist Z-centric only dudley-do-right, has read something and mis-interpreted ot.
It just makes the ZCCQ come across as a "closed shop" or elitist.
How in the heck is a newbie, ie anyone outside "The Cone of Zedness" supposed to see what the club is all about, turn up for things that are promoted, go to meetings, be an interested bystander,
With a pitential view to then participate and join in, if this rubbish is pushed.
All the Historic Car clubs, VHRR, HSRCA, HRCC, all promote themselves to outsiders, encourage non members to attend functions and events, even offer a "day licence" and "one day membership" to let people see and enjoy.
MGcar club Qld do this at Mt Cotton a couple times a year.
And plenty clubs organise social day runs, get togethers swap meets, and all warmly wrlcome non-members.
What is this gonna mean for the 2015 DatNats?? We all get wrapped in cotton wool as we cross the border into Qld?
