    The original logo from the 1950's as shown on the recent pages posted by Milan Fistonic
    here cropped from his post of the 1953 Wairamarama Hill Climb.

    Trevor Sheffield may know if this was also a badge for members - either lapel or a larger car badge ?

    Cossey's Farm, The current Road

    John Coker an NSCC Member for many years,Trials and later Rally Driver, ran a Skoda 120 at one stage - an ex-works car is now a keen cyclist and took photos recently.
    He noted that his time up the Hill [ even though a better track and slightly different layout ] was his slowest ever.

    - photos won't load - will try later ..
    Photos will not load to this post #343.
    Something is NOT right.

    Managed to load this photo though from Cosseys Farm.

    NSCC Programme and entry lists

    These images came from Richard Bauz of Switzerland [ has the Fb name Sand Mandli ] He owns the " Orchid Special " that Keith Yeates / Yeats ** built around 1969-61 [ a bit of a story there ] and raced in the 1960's
    Keith's surname spelt both as Yeats and YeatEs ..

    Programme Cover NSCC meeting December 1966 and some entry lists which show Keith was an NSCC member and entered under that club.

    See Trevor Sheffield and his Daimler SP250 #215 in the last three entry lists - appear to be from the same meeting.

    Historic Times coming up for NSCC in 2021/2022/2023

    Historic Times coming up for NSCC .. 1971 the Clubrooms at Mt Richmond Domain were first actively promoted and then constructed in 1972 so 50 years ago it started.
    1942 the first gatherings of the "social club " began.

    2021/2022 will be therefore 50th and 80th Anniversary's of major events in the clubs history.
    2023 would be the Clubs " Official " 80th year as incorporated in October 1943.

    There is some chatter about a function for the clubrooms which hopefully leads into 80th Anniversary Celebrations.
    Rod Peat, Mal Clark [ formely of Bygone Autos ] and Bob Homewood all competitors from the 1960's ,Bob, 1970's, Rod and Mal and on, are sounding the idea out.
    Hopefully it will develop into some great functions and events.
