EDITORIAL:

Winter is now well and truly here and the toys are away until spring.
I have several maintenance tasks planned over the winter but the garage is far less inviting at this time of year.

JOHN FORBES

John was a Club member some years ago and members may remember him and his passion for everything Beetle. John died peacefully at home on 30th October but news of his passing arrived too late for inclusion in last month’s Bulletin.
I am including this simply for information.

AGM:
Just a reminder that this will take place in the usual venue:
Kilmardinny House, Bearsden, Glasgow G61 on Monday 2nd December at 7 for 7.30pm.
Please be aware that Ronnie Gordon has advised that he will be resigning as Chairman and Acting Secretary in the course of this meeting.
Ronnie has been Chairman for the past ten years and we are grateful for everything he has done for the Club.
Anyone wishing to “take up the mantle” of one or other of these jobs should make this known at this time. Ronnie will be happy to advise on what is involved and help the new post holders with their new duties.
I will be on holiday next week so I will be unable to attend.

CLUB SUBSCRIPTION:
It is proposed that the Club subscription will be kept at £20.00 (Joint) and £17.00 (single)
MEMBERSHIP LIST:
A few members have asked about a copy of our membership list.
This can be obtained from John Young, Membership Secretary.
MID-WINTER DINNER:
This will be at our usual venue 1051 GWR ON Friday 17th January. (19.00 for 19.30.)
TS Queen Mary Festive Tour Day – Sunday 1st December 2019

I have just learned that tours of Queen Mary at the Science Centre will be given this Sunday 1st December. These tours are free but must be booked in advance. Tickets can be ordered online. I suspect this may be more interesting than Christmas shopping!

AND FINALLY:

I am unsure if this would really work but it certainly is an ingenious idea. I will try it next time I am doing brakes.

THAT’S ALL FOLKS.
Wishing everyone a great Christmas and New Year, hope to see you at the Club dinner.

Ronnie Johnston
