    Have just found out that the Deposit of $20.00 is the full cost, for the function. That includes the afternoon tea.

    Geoff Ridder [ Photography ] took over 80 photos which have been posted on the Reunion Facebook page and also on the " NZ Rallying History " Fb page.

    As noted on the " Ralph Watson In Memoriam " thread, Trevor Sheffield was there, as was I but we failed to see each other to have a chat.

    There were Club Members from 1950's through the 1960's and into the 1980's and 1990's.
    Quite a few former Presidents were there, as was the current President Vickie Burnitt.

    Here they are at the moment of the presentation of a Painting by the McLaren Trust -presented by Jan McLaren on behalf of the Trust.
    Left to right, Bob Mitchell, Rod Peat, Morrie Chandler Jan McLaren, Vicki Burnitt,Bob Kidd and the gentleman on the right I do not know [ make that remember ]

    Roger. As you've told us that at one time you lived in Green Bay, you might be interested in this NSCC Gymkhana held there in January 1967.

    " Green Bay, you might be interested in this NSCC Gymkhana held there in January 1967. "
    Just before I joined the Club, don't remember it.
    At the NSCC Reunion they had the magazines back to to 1972 only.

    Thanks for the post Milan.

    The Simca's of Wayne Jones ( pictured ) and Ralph Emson .. - finished 2nd and 3rd..

    Not an NSCC event but an ACC Club Circuit Day at Pukekohe - Ralph in his Simca - a John Larry Lawton photo.Also a 1967 event.
    The Club Circuit was quite new ..

    New Zealand Motor Cup - Centennial.

    New Zealand Motor Cup - Centennial. - The Event has been cancelled.
    An event was proposed by the New Zealand Grand Prix Association and the Historic Racing Club to celebrate.
    100 years since the NZ Motor Cup was first competed for at Muriwai Beach in 1921.
    The event had been postponed twice, but was scheduled for December 2nd 2022.

    It is hoped that some cars of the era and the Cup will be at the Ellerslie Concours next year.

    Here is the communication issued through Ticketeck who were responsible for the bookings

    " The Historic Racing Club and NZIGP have today made the difficult decision to cancel its New Zealand Motor Cup Centenary Celebration to be held at Muriwai on Friday 2nd December 2022.

    The decision comes after having to postpone the original event twice over the past 2 years due to COVID and now the rapidly rising costs of hosting events and the increasingly difficult logistics of being able to run the event mean we were left with little option. This coupled with Motorsport New Zealand having to cancel their 75th Gala Dinner on the day after our event due to similar issues means that a lot of the guests we were expecting will now not be attending.

    There are plans to have some of the cars and the New Zealand Motor Cup on display at the Ellerslie Concours on Sunday 12th February 2023

    We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this decision, however, we hope you understand it is not one we made lightly. "
