Chrysler vehicles

Hi all, welcome to this month’s Presidents message, last one for 2023!!

We held our club Christmas Party on the 26 th of November at the Oxley Golf Club. We had about 45 people in attendance and 17 cars roll up of various makes and models and park in a roped off area. It seems as all in attendance enjoyed the afternoon and the buffet lunch provided.

Many prizes were on offer with a ladies award, a chrome bumper award, lucky door prizes, raffles, a trivia event and other giveaways to make the day a fun time for all. The weather was fantastic, normal for this time of year and the rain stayed away for the drive home.

So that now concludes the formalities for the year and we look forward to 2024 just a few short weeks away. We now begin to look at what we can plan for next year in an effort to drive the club forward and engage as many members as we can.

One event I’m personally looking forward to is a run down to Chryslers on the Murray in Albury/Wodonga in March. Forward planning has begun and I would like to hear from anyone considering going down this year. It’s imperative that we start early planning for accommodation as this is a very big event for the region.

Last year we had 8 people go there in 4 cars. We took close to 3 days to get there travelling a leisurely 500 odd kilometres per day so as not to stress the vehicles or the drivers. If you think you may want to join us for the event (we have 4 definite starters so far) please call Dave Sutton or myself to register your interest.

We have also had some feedback regarding the type of runs we do next year. It seems the club trailer barbeque format is popular and we haven’t done many of those lately. We will be including a few of those this year mixing that up with pub or other venue events where we travel to specific places of interest.

We will also look at another weekend run where we stay for a couple of nights and really get plenty of time to relax, get to know each other better and give the cars a decent country run.

We look forward to engaging with the other local Chrysler clubs where we tag along to their events or vice versa.

We had a couple of these runs in 2023 and at one we had over 40 cars with fantastic model diversity. And we got to meet a lot of great fellow enthusiasts, a win-win for all.

Well, it’s getting late, I’ve still got one oil change to do so I will get stuck into it.

I personally wish everyone a great Christmas and a Happy New Year. Enjoy your holidays and family and I look forward to seeing you all again very soon.

Enjoy your rides people, cheers for now.
