Club Meeting Monday 6TH July
The VSCC has negotiated a 3 month lease for the Light Car Club premises, situated opposite 37 Moojebing Street, Bayswater.
We have ample bitumen parking on the premises, so let’s celebrate post COVID-19 with a good turn out of cars, preferably your beloved historic vehicles, if possible.
We can in fact display a vehicle inside, so if any member would like to display their vehicle on the night, please call Michael Broughton on 0418 921 544 or drop him a line on email@example.com
As an extra inducement, we are providing complementary assorted pizzas and have access to a kitchen and fridge, so feel free to bring along your own alcohol.
For catering and logistical purposes, please drop Sheryl Swarbrick a quick note on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring her on 0416 025 667 by Friday July 3, confirming your attendance.
We will then set up seating and table arrangements, once numbers are confirmed.
May we kindly suggest that members take the trouble to wear their lanyards on the night. Lanyards enable any member to identify another member and are very welcoming for any visitors, quests or potential new members.
The reason we have secured Bayswater for the next 3 months and beyond is the uncertainty of being able to use Caversham as out meeting venue, due to the on-going maintenance issues. Even is we were allowed entry in the foreseeable future, out clubroom will be uninhabitable without a lot of hands on volunteer assistance.
Let’s aim for a big turn out on the Monday evening July 6 and don’t forget to let Sheryl know you are coming by July 3 on email@example.com . Roll up at 6.30 for a 7 pm start. Remember! Free pizzas.
TRIBUTE TO TERRY LE MAY
The VSCC of WA will present a tribute to the late Terry le May, an enthusiastic member of the club for some years until his untimely death from cancer at Easter.
1 pm on Saturday July 18.
Terry’s wife Megan has rounded up photos and news clippings to put up on screen. The lady who was the celebrant at Terry’s funeral will be the MC.
We have a few people who knew Terry well who will talk and any one who would like to speak is welcome. What Terry knew and achieved us unbelievable.
Owen, terry’s son, who missed out on the funeral because of COVID-19 lockdown, is coming down from Broome for the event.
Terry was a great club member and a true asset to the VSCC of WA. Every member of the club who knew Terry is invited to join in this tribute. Should you have any memorabilia or photos of Terry’s remarkable history. Please contact Graeme Whitehead, home phone 08 9279 1061, mobile 0412 919 370, email firstname.lastname@example.org , to let him know the names of club members and friends who will be attending. Because we are providing a sausage sizzle, we need confirmation of numbers by Wednesday July 15. There will also be a retro coffee caravan there from 10am, supplying excellent beverages to order.
The location is great for car access and parking, so why not bring along your historic vehicle or car of interest. This would make a great photo opportunity to include in a Terry le May tribute in our next edition of Vintage Metal.
PS: Please wear your lanyard with pride.
Secretary David Moir received an email from Barry Wise of the Historic Racing Car Club of Queensland asking for information.
Barry said: ‘I was wondering if any one in your club would know of a Graham Brown who raced a March formula Atlantic in the early eighties. If so, I would appreciate some type of contact as I am researching the history of his old 1981 March 81a/82a. Looking forward to a reply. Regards Barry Wise HRCC Qld’
Please send any information to Barry at email@example.com

The objectives of the club are for "the organisation of events to cater for older sports and racing cars and to especially celebrate the original 'round the houses' racing which was held on street circuits in many country towns in the 30's, 40's and 50's". These objectives remain unchanged today.
Terry le May as many will remember him, working at his bench.
