Car Club

Car Club

Orientation Rally on 5th March started off the club's events for the year. About 120 people took part and the final results are still not to hand. The route passed around town, through a few suburbs, then out to the Hutt Valley to finish at Clouston Park in the Akatarawes. Afternoon tea was enjoyed during the rally and a barbeque was eaten at Clouston Park. No one got lost (for good) but there were some puzzling moments. Even the organisers found it difficult, (deciding places). For the technically minded it lasted 70 miles and 3 hours. It had a MANZ regs.

Following this rally there was held a Film Evening and de-briefing session on 8th March. It provided a chance for everyone there to have a general rave on.

The next event to be held is the Easter Tournament. Various bods from other N.Z. Uni's will be visiting with their bombs to compete in the day trial, night trial and gymkhana. It is up to us to piss over this fiery competition.

There will be a Tournament Car Rally Meeting on Thursday night 23rd March 7.30pm Listening Room. Anyone interested in Tournament Car Rally (crews, mechanics, tea ladies, advisers, and hangers on, etc) should be there. C.H. Tear.
