11 Members were present on a beautiful day
Apologies: Rohan, Nick, Duncan & Sheila, John
Donna joined us as a member of the Hall committee.
We also welcomed Sharon and Lindsay who had come along interested in joining the Club.
We discussed how the Hall would support our barbecue, and they are happy to open at 9 serving tea coffee bacon rolls etc. They will stop doing bacon rolls when we start the barbecue, but will serve teas etc all afternoon. The bar will be open from 12.
At Glamis we will set up the pitch on the Saturday. Duncan will cut the grass before we set up – thanks Duncan for seeing to that. You can come and go as you please on the Saturday, but vehicles will not be allowed in after 9am on the Sunday and will not be allowed to leave before the event is finished.
The flyers are back from the printers and everyone thought they look good. Thanks to Nick for getting them made.
The embroidery place has set up the template so members can go along next week and get the badge added to any item of clothing you want to take. The cost will be dependent on the size and any lettering you want to add. You can contact them before you go.
The Embroidery Place. Unit 1, Meadow Mill, West Hendersons Wynd, Dundee, DD1 5BY.
Tel: 01382 20 55 20. email@example.com .
We discussed our barbecue preparations, much along the lines of last year since everyone thought that went well. Our main fund raising will be the raffle so again we ask members to bring along a couple of items. If anyone knows of a business who might contribute a voucher for their services then please go and visit them with a begging bowl! Nick will also set up the whisky trail again.
We will set up the field at the Hall about 3 on Saturday 4th August.

9 Members were present
Apologies: George & Duncan at Thirlestane show, Bob at Shetland show, Duncan & Sheila, Rohan, Colin.
A vote of thanks was proposed for Sheila for her work in organising an enjoyable evening for the poker run. We saw much of the Angus countryside and her detailed directions meant we all made it to Arbroath for tea. Colin had the best poker hand.
John thanked all who came and helped with his engine rebuild.
Arrangements were made for the Errol show on Sunday. Members going to The Thomson Rally in Stonehaven on Sunday 24th can enter at the event. It is held at the park across the road from the swimming pool.
Nick will arrange for the flyers to be printed with a first run of 100.
Nick was proposed as a signatory for the club account, and he accepted the role.
We discussed various aspects of the Club barbecue and we seem to have most matters in hand. A representative of the Hall committee will be at the next meeting to finalise arrangements.

Altogether we brought in £600.00 not including any deductions I thought this was a great amount. I thought the field was looking very good with the new bridge and we would like to thanks Heidi and Gary for the use of the field for the BBQ.
I would also like to say welcome to our 2 new members Alex Souter and Linda Duncan-Browne.
Glamis Extravaganza- What a great weekend brilliant turn out of people think everyone that came to Glamis had a great weekend, Duncan McIntosh went home with a Rosette for his land rover it was good to see someone from the club win a prize.

HONEY FARM VISIT: Before the meeting today some of the members popped up to Bridge of Cally to visit Bernard's Honey farm, this was also very interesting, maybe not the best turned out event either by members, the members that did pop along got a nice little tester of some of the Honey that they produce.

NEWSLETTER FOR NOVEMBER 2012:
CHRISTMAS MEAL: IF THERE IS ANYONE WANTING TO PUT THERE NAME FORWARD FOR THE CHRISTMAS MEAL PAM NEEDS TO KNOW A.S.A.P. TO BOOK THE TABLE, IT IS ON SUNDAY 9TH DECEMBER AT THE STRATHMORE GOLF CLUB(outside Alyth). We will be pre-ordering so once you let me know if you want to go I can get a menu to you so you can pick what you would like to eat on the day. THE MEAL WILL COST £21.95 PER HEAD, as stated in last newsletter there is a children's menu but you will just get a choice on the day from this. TIME OF MEAL 2PM FOR 2.30PM.
HUNTER TROPHY: there was a ballot box out at the meeting for people to vote for who they thought has done the most for the club over the last year.
CALENDAR: The calendars have now all been handed out I hope everyone was happy with them.
MEMBERSHIP FEES: The membership is now due for 2012 into 2013, Family membership is £17.00 and Single membership is £12.00. at the meeting Rohan spoke up on behalf of Jim and Nick and said they were not happy with the way it had been decided to be put up. It was never put to a proper vote so after much discussion it was then voted on and the majority agreed to membership being the price earlier stated.
In future the club would always like a show of hands before any changes are being made in the club. If you feel the club business is not getting dealt with correctly can you please bring to the chairman's attention.
A.G.M- This should be the A.G.M. But as we were not overly prepared for this it maybe was not the best day to have it as Graham was not present. We did a vote for the A.G.M to be moved forward to September from next year and the majority agreed to this. The reason Pam asked for it to be moved forward is, the S.V.V.F need to update all of there yearly books by the 1st of November, if we don't have our A.G.M. until November its too late for the secretary to be organised with all the details for them so it would make life a little easier also the secretary can have all new paper work up to date.
Dave Guthrie has done his 3 years of collecting the points, he was not present at the meeting so we didn't vote him off but we decided just in case he would like to resign we better have someone on stand by to take over the position, Eric was proposed for this job and everyone backed the proposal up and Eric also agreed to it. Scott has since spoke to Dave Guthrie he would like to stand down.
No other positions have to be filled this year as no one has completed there 3 year stint, and the club are happy with the committee we have at the moment.
CHAIRPERSON- GAHAM BRUCE
VICE CHAIR / POINTS COLLECTOR- ERIC MITCHELL
SECRETARY- PAM HENRY
EVENTS ORGANISER- SCOTT HENRY
TREASURER -COLIN MIDDLETON
If there are any members out there that would like to join our committee you can be co-opted on through out the year, your input in always helpful and welcome.
This is my 3rd year of doing the job of secretary and I am planning on this being my last year, as I can not always make the meetings due to other commitments if there is anyone out there that might like to take over my position, I would much appreciate it. No need to make a decision now you have until September to think about it.
TRIP NEXT APRIL: Bob priced a place in Fort William but it was rather expensive £44.00 per head per night. Bob is now going to look into other places round about the Fort William area for the weekend of 26th April so it does not clash with Drive it Day next year. He'll get back to us at a later date.
A BIG VOTE OF THANKS TO ERIC FOR CHAIRING THE MEETING TODAY YOU DID A GRAND JOB.
Many thanks, Pam and the committee.
NEWSLETTER FOR OCTOBER 2012:
CHRISTMAS MEAL: Has been provisionally booked for Sunday 9th December at the Strathmore Golf Centre Alyth. We must have numbers of all people wanting to come along and join us at the meal as I have to book seats, if there are more than 10 people going they would prefer it if we pre ordered our meals, there was a choice of 2 different menus but most people agreed on the more expensive one which is £21.95 per head. There is also a children’s menu but it will just be a normal children's selection e.g chicken goujons etc. and the children's will cost approx £5.00 per head. Also if you do pre order your meal and can not make it you will still be responsible for paying for the meal. There will be copies at the November meeting so you can pick what you would like, if you can't make the next meeting but would like to come along to the Christmas meal please contact Pam and she will give you details of the menu.
CALENDAR: Scott has already started processing the calendar, so it's now too late to put in a picture of your own vehicle for this year but if it all goes well we might do a similar thing again next year, if you ordered a calendar can you please bring your money to the November meeting if you have not paid for them already, the calendars cost £12.50 each.
ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP: The membership fee's are due in November and it has been decided to put the price up slightly so a single membership will cost £12.00 and a family membership will cost £ 17.00.
We have mentioned this before but just a small reminder we had a few no shows of cars at some of our gatherings e.g scone farming yesteryear- there were 7 cars didn't turn up to scone this year and it costs the club money to enter to these events per car,I know things can go wrong or something crops up and you can't always make it, but we really would appreciate it if members are not going to manage to an event they put there name down for can they please let us know asap as we might manage to fill the place with another vehicle, some of the events have a maximum number of vehicles there for it's sometimes preventing other people from putting their name on the list.
BANNERS: We are hoping to buy 2 new feather banners for our stands to put on display at any shows we attend these will cost approx £300.00ish.
After Farming yesteryear the hotel display had to be scrapped, as it was not reusable.
If there are any members that have a email address can you please pass it on to Pam so she can send out your newsletter's by email, as sending out paper copies cost approx £6.00 per month. It is so must easier doing it on the computer and you can always print your own copy out at home.
ANY OTHER BUISNESS: Nick had details of a Morris 1000 4 door saloon 1969 H, Green. If someone was willing to restore it, it was free if it was going for spares it was going to cost £250.00. I haven't put any more details out about it as Jim Kelly is now the new proud owner of this vehicle to give him a wee winter project.
It was also suggested asking someone to come from Kirkmicheal Restoration to give us a talk some time.
Trip to Alyth Restoration will be happening one Saturday morning in January or February, date to be arranged.
Bus trip to east fortune sometime through the winter was also suggested.
I hope I have made an okay job of this months newsletter as I wasn't at the meeting but Colin kindly took notes for me. Thanks Colin.
Thanks, Pam and the committee.
NEWSLETTER FOR SEPTEMBER 2012:
GLAMIS EXTRAVAGANZA: Graham thanked everyone that came along to Glamis and also helped setting up and packing up. It turned out a good weekend.
CLUB B.B.Q: Thanks to everyone that helped on the day, it was a good turn out. Graham had a few enquiries asking why we don't charge for entry or burgers, but we always make enough on the raffle to cover everything, its always worked fine that way so far, everyone at the meeting seemed happy with this. Frank from Auto smart donated 3 prizes which was very good of him. Davie Mclevy was impressed with having ice-cream cones this year.
CLUB CALENDER: We are going ahead with a club calender this year, if you would like your car put on one of the months please can you either E-MAIL, GET A PHOTO ON A DISC OR MEMORY STICK SO SCOTT CAN GET THEM ALL COLLECTED TOGETHER AT THE NEXT MEETING. Scott's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org , address is 4 redford road padanaram, by forfar. DD8 1PZ. Or bring it along to the next meeting. THE PRICE WILL BE APPROX £12.50 PER CALENDER AND SCOTT NEEDS THE MONEY ALSO BEFORE ORDERING THEM. THE CALENDER SIZE WAS AGREED TO BE A3 WITH A PICTURE ON THE TOP HALF AND CALENDER DATES ON THE BOTTOM HALF. ANY MORE QUESTIONS PLEASE CALL SCOTT ON 01307467653 OR MOBILE 07811127924. The photo has to be in digital format so Scott can email them to the company that's making them.
CHRISTMAS LUNCH: It has been suggested this year we have a change of venue for our Christmas lunch, Jackie Peebles is going to get us a price for the Strathmore golf club, but they don't get made up until October so we'll get back to you with menu date and price.
SCONE FARMING YESTERYEAR: Set up day Saturday 8th September, open to public Sunday 9th September. I think we have enough helpers for setting up on the Saturday but that doesn't mean you're not welcome to come along on the Saturday, but there is lots going on and we don't have an actual meeting time for the Saturday, but you can always pop along and have a wander about if you want to.
CAN EVERYONE WITH A PASS FOR SCONE PLEASE BE AT THE STAND FOR 8.30am AS JUDGING STARTS AT 9AM. IF THERE IS ANYONE WITH A PASS AND ARE NOT GOING TO MANAGE CAN YOU PLEASE CONTACT A MEMBER OF THE COMMITTEE BEFORE 9AM ON SUNDAY SO WE KNOW NOT TO LEAVE SPACES FOR YOU COMING.
OUTINGS: The MG club have asked us if we would like to join them on a trip to East Fortune Museum. Its on Saturday 27th October, meeting place is south car park at the Tay bridge at 9.30 leaving at 9.45am. There are only about 12 members in this club so if you fancy tagging along with your car please do so.
CLASSIC RESTORATION in Alyth, some members would like to visit, Bernard has been looking into it for us, they are closed first 2 weeks October and middle of November. But most other weekend are ok we just have to give them a date, it was decided on Sunday that the end of January beginning of February would now be better to go.
Jag restoration at Inverkething – Again Bernard is going to get back to us with a date as the MG club are looking into this visit also.
Bus Museum Lathammond- This one we could possibly go on a bus rather than take our own cars. This is a bus museum and all the buses are privately owned but it is interesting if you like that sort of thing. This will also maybe be another thought for next year as time is against us now this year, they do have a classic show once a year so maybe when we find out when this is we could get something sorted.
When we get the new year book in January we could maybe go thorough it at a meeting and decide on some other small shows that we could go along to next year rather than it just always being Errol, Glamis and Scone. e.g- Ladybank, Fraserburgh, stirling.
CHIPPY RUN: SUNDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER, MEET AT 3.00PM in the Greens car park Forfar,then we'll set off at 3.30, head to Brechin, Montrose then end up in Arbroath and stop for our chippy at the Bell Rock which is in Arbroath.
Many Thanks, Pam and the committee.
NEWSLETTER FOR AUGUST 2012:

GLAMIS EXTRAVAGANZA: The weekend of Glamis went very well, it was a bit muddy under foot but I think everyone had a good weekend, I thought the club stand was looking great with the garage scene and think we might use it again at Scone.
CLUB B.B.Q: We were very lucky with the weather on Sunday, when we were getting ready to set up the tents on the Saturday the rain was pelting down. But Sunday stayed fair, we had a good turn out of vehicles approx 130 turned up on the day. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We had a grand total of £568.00. We also added a few new things this year, we had Jackie supply us with background music, we had 2 highland dancers and also a ice cream stall. It all seemed to go down well, but we will be looking for feedback on this at the next couple of meetings.
MEARNS SHOW: Sunday 26th August this is the next car show, Scott has the passes and they will be getting posted or handed out very soon. Lets hope the weather is on our side for this event too.

Doreen will get the Burgers
We will also be looking for lots of prizes for the tombola and the raffle stall all donations welcome.
Nick noticed the entry in the year book wasn't the same as normal it doesn't mention the bikes or 4x4's, I will change this for next year, I did ask it to be the same as usual but it hasn't gone in that way.
Jim was wondering if anyone would mind if there were a few tractors come along this year could they maybe have a on road run as well as off road, everyone seemed happy enough with this. Just for a change, the road run normally leaves the field about 11am stop for a cuppy at Glen Markie around 12pm then back to the field the back of 1pm. Jim will tell the drivers on the morning of the B.B.Q about the change to the run.
WE NEED HELPERS SAT 4TH AUGUST FOR SETTING UP IN THE FIELD AT 4PM PLEASE.

GLAMIS EXTRAVAGANZA: Nick has done a rough drawing of what the stand might look like for Glamis, He will be needing painters to re-paint the old garage, as it will need freshened up and a new name put on it. Scott is going to give Nick new MDF for making the petrol pump. We will have to look at the years of cars already on the list for Glamis before we can pinpoint a year to go by for the theme. We're hoping to use 1 for pretend repairing and 2 for using on the forecourt for sale. We will have to watch for space and we don't want it looking too cluttered, Duncan is hoping to use his land rover to make it look like a breakdown truck.
Graham is going to supply a old oil drum for display.

Are we doing fancy dress ? Think we will have to have a couple of people in boiler-suites and some people dressed up as customers from the year we decide, it might be the late 60's early 70's. Louie suggested we try to find a Glasses Guide from the time, if anyone one can help please let us know.
We would be looking at working with old money so it's more interesting, prices for the motors.
We are still looking for old accessories from these years if any members can help us also.

NEWSLETTER JANUARY 2012:
Happy New Year to Everyone, hope you had a good Christmas.
Winners of last years trophy's: Eric Mitchell won the points trophy and Scott Henry won the Hunter trophy.
POINTS SYSTEM: We have had a look and wondered if we could propose a new points system, Scott did a wee bit of thinking over Christmas and came up with a new way to give points out, so it might encourage members to try harder to get more points and make it easier to catch up through the year . We had copies of the new points system at the meeting and everyone agreed to give it ago this year I've put a copy of them in with your newsletter.
MEMBERSHIP FEE'S: It is suggested to put the membership up for next year as cost are always increasing, eg for stamps, paper, ink etc. Also suggested to try out, when members renew their membership every year give them a small thank you gift e.g- pen, diary, fridge magnet, coaster. Members all thought this was a good idea after lots of discussion on the matter. The increase would only be approx £2.00- £2.50.
TENT: It's time to replace the gazebo once again as the last one burst on its first time up at Glamis in 2009, it's been rubbish, everyone agreed to us getting prices for a new one, hopefully pop up, to make life a little easier as there is not always enough people around to help put the one we have up. This will be brought up again next month.
APRIL WEEKEND AWAY: Bob asked the 3 other members going on this weekend if they would all like to eat together on the Saturday evening at 8pm for a meal, each member agreed with this so Bob will get in touch with the Hotel.
TALK: Bernard asked if there were any thought's on a talk after one of the next few meetings, Scott has already asked Bob if he can do a talk on the history of the club, so he will do this after the March meeting.
GLAMIS EXTRAVAGANZA: If anyone has any ideas with a theme for this year please put your thoughts forward.
TRIPS: So far a trip to East Fortune has been put down to visit this year any other ideas please bring your ideas along to a meeting or give us a call or email.
Thanks, Pam and the committee.
JUST A WEE REMINDER: IF YOU HAVE NOT DONE SO ALREADY ITS TIME TO PAY YOUR NEW MEMBERSHIP FEE'S.
Newsletter for December:
Hello members, The meeting today was a bit more informal, just a bleather round the fire.
POINTS BOOK: Bernard has asked if when you are signing in the points book can you please print your name rather than sign please as it took him and Davie ages to go through the book and could not understand some of the writing, so if you don't print your name it might not get counted.
UPDATE ON SKYE TRIP: There are still 3 rooms left for the weekend of 20th April 2012, I think it's £32.50 or £35.00 per head per night, If interested the hotel is called The Dornie Hotel. The telephone number is 01599 555205, please tell them you are coming with the Glenisla classic vehicle club or they will say they are full up, you will have to pay a deposit up front. Bob also suggested anyone that has already booked and is looking to eat there on the Friday evening they better phone the hotel in advance to check this will be ok, and it would also be good if everyone going could also meet together on the Saturday and all eat their evening meal together.
Nick and Graham were having a chat after the last meeting and wondered if it's time the club should have a constitution, the club is always changing and if anything untoward happened there are proper rules and regulations, this was agreed by other members present on Sunday, Pam and Colin will look into this for January.
BUS TRIP TO MOTOR MUSEUM: What a great day out we had there, 27 members came along and everyone enjoyed it.
SUGGESTED TRIPS OUT FOR NEXT YEAR TO THINK ABOUT: East fortune, Chippy run earlier in the year this time, Drive it day (for the poor members that can't afford to go to Skye), Coventry Festival ( end September beginning of October) weekend of it Friday to Monday, Invitation from MX5 club to any of there outings you can check out there web site for events organised by them.
George asked me to add in this message from him: I wish to thank the committee members, past, present and the members for all their help and support I have received during my time as a chairman which I have enjoyed very much. We are now handing over to Graham Bruce, he is a long standing member and he knows how the cogs and wheels of the club turns. Many thanks George.
THE NEXT MEETING IS TO BE HELD ON SUNDAY 8TH JANUARY 2012 USUAL TIME 4PM. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thanks, Pam and the committee.
