IVITATION FROM THE PRESIDENT, VCCQ:

Once again, we are holding this event at beautiful Ormiston House. As you are aware, it has long been our pleasure to invite the members of your club and their beautiful cars to this event, and I write to you now to issue this invitation again.

 The spacious grounds and spectacular bay views of Ormiston House are on offer again as will be their famous Devonshire teas. Ormiston House has advised that their entry fee is $7.00 per adult, $5.00 for concessions and $2.00 for children under twelve.

 We are also inviting the Bentley, Classic Jaguar, TR Register and Veteran Clubs to join us. We believe that such an extensive display of interesting cars will be enjoyed by everyone.

 A Visitors’ Prize will be awarded to best pre-war car belonging to a non VCCQ member. As always though, the awarding of all trophies and prizes remains a relaxed and low key event.

 We have also decided to invite people to come in period dress, ideally in the style of the era of their car. Many people wear period dress at our event and we thought it really added to the ambiance of the day so we are again going to encourage this at this year’s event. 

Of course and as usual, our Concours day is also an opportunity to bump into old friends.

 The day will start at around 10 a.m. You will recall from last year there is ample space for the parking, and loading and unloading of trailers. We will have VCCQ people there to assist.

Any enquiries regarding the day can be addressed to Ronnie Brown. Contact details are:

   Ronnie Brown.  Phone: 3202 7462 or 0419 702 329.  Email: alvisronnie@bigpond.com
