Apologies for the late notice.

Thanks to all members who have sent RSVPs for our Christmas meeting. If you haven’t replied yet, please let the Secretary know, or alternatively, sign up on the sheet that will be available at Thursdays meeting.

We would also like to remind all members who will be travelling to the meeting from the eastern suburbs that the road closures for the car race will be in place, so do allow extra time as the traffic may very well be quite dire!
