members will also be needed to assist with the judging and to collate and sort the mountain of paperwork associated with it.
It’s going to be full-on and no doubt a demanding day but the rewards for the Club will make it all well worth it. So please be involved and enjoy the excitement and challenge of it all.
There has been no feedback on how the car display at the Morayfield Shopping Centre on the 14th, 15th and 16th June went, so it’s assumed that all went fine.
Many thanks to Scott for putting his car on display and also to the helpers who manned the display during that period. See ‘youse’ at the Show N Shine!
By the time this newsletter is received, the Club’s annual Show N Shine and Swap Meet is going to be right on top of us. There’s heaps to do before the event and on the day which will require the resources of all available members. For those who can make it, please come along to the showgrounds on Friday afternoon 22nd June to render assistance with setting-up and positioning signage, bins etc. Then there’s the show day itself which will require a chilly 4:30am start. As the gates open at 6:00am, there’s likely to be an influx of swap meet vendors eager to position their displays and to set-up. As such, members will be required to man gates, collect monies, marshal traffic and give directions.
As the day progresses,
CRCC Show N Shine & Swap Meet, 23 June 2012
Memberships are due on 30 June
It’s that time of the year again when memberships are due. We ask that these be paid by the 30th June 2012 and that
each renewal accompany a fully-completed membership form along with payment of the renewal fee of $20.00. A completed membership form is required so that Club records can be brought up-to-date.
There’s a renewal form included in this newsletter. Renewals can also be mailed to the Caboolture Regional Car Club, PO Box 1668, Caboolture, Q. 4510.
Membership cards are expected to be ready for delivery by the August meeting. Would like to have them out sooner but still considering an appropriate numbering system. I have devised one which will need to presented to the Executive Committee and members for endorsement and hopefully this will be done at the July meeting.

All Holden Day, Bundaberg, 12 May. Seven members/partners drove to Bundaberg on 11 May to attend the All Holden Day. These were Helen, Lyster and Riana Clarke, Kevin and Sharon Lewis, and Lance and Karen Haslewood. Had a great weekend of mixing and leisure. They didn’t come home empty-handed as Lyster took 1st Place for Best Stock-Modified HJ-HJ Monaro and Lance took 1st Place Best SL/R 5000.
Rodz Rock N Roll, Strathpine, 26 May. Several members attended. A great day culminating in live entertainment that evening. A bit chilly once the sun went down. Hundreds of top-quality cars on show. Well worth it.
D’Aguilar/Montville Run, 03 June. Inclement weather spoilt this one. Just two cars and three people made the effort; Kevin Lewis, Carl Talboys and Lance Haslewood. As I live near D’Aguilar, I waited at the Dag store for Kevin and Carl to arrive, after which we got stuck into some scrumptious egg and bacon rolls washed down with superb coffee. Next stop, home! Would like to return to the Dag store sometime in the near future with hopefully a lot more cars and people. Jason and Mitz (owners) put on a really good spread and look forward to having the Club visit. See pic, Page 8. Lance.

Lance is endeavourin g to have the June shirt order delivered in time for the
Show N Shine on 23 June.
Sister Mary Ann, whose duties include visiting elderly
parishioners who struggle to look after
themselvesm is returning to the convent when
she runs out of petrol. Praise the Lord,
however, as the petrol station is just a block
away. And when the attendant tells her that the
only can he owns has been lent-out, it is still no
problem. For as quick as a blink, Sister Ann returns to her
car, grabs a bed pan and returns to the petrol station where she fills to the brim,
before heading-back to the car, balancing it carefully.

When you drink rum over ice, it can give you liver failure.
When you drink whiskey over ice, it can give you heart problems.
When you drink gin over ice, it can give you brain problems.
When you drink bourbon over ice, it can give you digestive
Apparently, ice is really bad for you.
