Trip to Oberon 2016

Sunday the 24th of July, 75 members and family made their way to Oberon, visiting the Mayfield Gardens!

At precisely 8:30am, we moved off, heading west on the Great Western Highway. All machines running well and as we approached Blackheath, the cars began to produce a fine hum, as the outside temperature dropped to  0 degrees. Upon arrival at Mayfield Gardens, all running to a HUGE LOG FIRE, with an espresso coffee in hand. 

Our walk through the gardens was amazing. Over $25 million dollars spent in setting up the gardens...the water features each containing incredible stone work of artisans. Granted we visited at the height of winter, it had already been decided that we will visit again, in the warmer months of Autumn or perhaps Spring, when the immaculate gardens will be in full bloom!

From Oberon, we drove back to Hampton and had lunch at the Halfway Hotel... the "meat servings" made it obvious, that we were in country NSW, High country at that!  The fish was good too!

A fantastic day, covering over 400Km of fantastic country driving. The cars outperformed each other...and every participant shared in a memorable drive and great company!

See you on our next run!

On Friday the 8th of July, we held our Annual General meeting at Club Marconi.
Firstly, a HUGE THANK YOU to the 85 enthusiastic attendees that attended the meeting, in passionate style.
With 'formalities" completed, Member Gerardo Mediati, presented a few changes in categories, to our Concorso d'Eleganza, to be held on the 18th of September at Gough Whitlam Park. Always doing our best to cater for all members.
Member Brad Aitken, presented a "proposal" for our 4 day tour of the North Coast, to be held in the Autumn! Members expressing significant interest in what promises to be another great DRIVE experience.
The outcome of the night, presented the new committee, which remains unchanged. The club is fortunate to have a group of 7, that continue to maintain the passion & enthusiasm, that creates & maintains the ongoing success of IMSMC. Naturally, the club would not be what it is without the support of its members & sponsors! THANK YOU!
At the conclusion of proceedings, we enjoyed our traditional pasta meal (with Club Marconi's famous parmesan cheese & Chilli) and of course the favourite "Mille Foglie" cake for dessert, meanwhile the "YEAR IN REVIEW" video was displayed for the viewing of all (just like our Club Financials) on the big screen, bringing a smile to all, as they recalled certain 2015 club events!
Thank you everyone for your continued passion, enthusiasm and involvement, which makes our Club what it is!
