G'day Lurch,
I presume you guys have booked the Jag Rooms. As in contacting them first. Were they willing to allow us to attend their rooms for free? Are they allowing you to have a car or two on display? If so then it sounds like it could be a great night. Let me know if you need a hand with anything. Cheers

I spoke to my brother Gordon and whilst he can't bring his car he was going to come along with his friend Dave who also races his Zed and won last 2005 NDSOC club sprint championship.

I just read that the NDSOC have changed there monthly meeting dates again and scheduled an early meeting same night as ours, so hopefully you can all still make it to the Jag Club. I know we are not in competion with the NDSOC but we did post out meeting date first. Usually their first meeting isn't till Feb. Anyway hope you can all still make it to the Jag Club as I will.
Cheers

Word must have gotten out about an alternative club and got them worried LOL.

FWIW RVAC was another meeting place I was going to suggest, now that would have made it interesting........

Hi Guys,

Just to confirm that all is booked. Details remain the same.

When: Wed 31st Jan.
Time: 7:30pm start, 8:30 for a brief presentation.
Location: Jag. Club clubrooms.
Address: 23 Rosalie St, Springvale (there's a servo on the corner).


Soft drink will be supplied.
Plenty of off-street parking.

I'll be sure to fire off a reminder e-mail to all members this Friday.
Our agenda for the night will be a quick introduction of all attending followed by a presentation by Craig Lovegrove on his heavily modded V8 2+2 260z. I will organize a number of DVD's of Z car action to be played during the night for all to watch. Pizza will be organised for all attending but the Bar will not be open.

There has been some mention of organizing a cruise to follow soon after this meet. This can be discussed on the night, (Seeing the Nationals are only about 5 weeks from the meet date perhaps we could organize a Z colony of cars to cruise up to the Phillip Island Nationals for Easter!???)

See you on the night, please refer to map location below.

Please make every effort to attend as we will be using the numbers on this meet to establish how often we should set future meetings. See you there!

Cheers
Sulio
