PRESIDENTS REPORT - Craig Mitchell

Hi everybody,
The hum and feel goods are still circulating in regards to our 30th anniversary Show and Shine display at Whiteman Park
on the 30th October. First off l'd like to thank all those who were behind the scenes to make this an absolute success,
everybody thoughly enjoyed the casual atmosphere in an australian setting surrounded by historic road and race bikes,
past members mixing with new members, old and young sharing their knowledge so its maybe an event added to our
calender in the future, the wine labels were a ripper.

Presentation Dinner night is only a couple of weeks away and is another great way to mix with fellow competitors in a
social capacity, the end of season debrief or just celebrating successes it is always a highlight on the annual programme.
Quite a few have booked accomodation at the event venue which I am told is very reasonably priced. Bar and band with
a steak and salmon set menu I'm hoping to see you all there. With the Festival of Speed at Wanneroo the following day
can I say you've never heard an F1 car like you heard an F1 car with a hangover, seriously though what a brillant way
to promote our club to an audience of rev-heads and lovers of speed, these old race bikes always are well recieved by
the public and interest by young and old alike. As the positions for this event "vintage race bikes"were limited those who
competed through out the year were asked to attend and display their bikes with a chance of a parade lap so while a
few have slipped through or missed out this event is also being touted as an annual event giving our club the opportunity
to participate in the future. To all of you attending thankyou for participating and promoting you club.

Thats not all folks, don’t park that bike just yet, the National Supermotard Championships are to be held at Collie
Powerhouse Circuit on the 4th and 5th December and our club has been invited to attend with 1 hour of track time
over 3 sessions during the day for both days, format to be decided but all interested should make it known both solos
and sidecars. With the Collie track known to attract large crowds this is another good opportunity to get exposure for our
club and historic racing as well as mixing with international and australian talent competing in a very entertaining style
of motorcycle racing as fellow competitors and camp buddies at a ti me of year where you can leave the woolens at home.
Aprons of bitumen have been laid where the unsealed section enters the main track keeping the track surface free from
loose material, these are used quite sucessfully and as we may not have a full race permit it makes ideal for parading
to heated parading at the last outing of 2010 so join in at all levels,all welcome, good fields are very exciting to watch as
well as be in at these events, the pressures off and people always enjoy themselves.

Broadford Southern Classic 2010 was another first class event,thanks to everybody who were involved in this adventure,
our club has a good fit and everybody seems to help everybody which makes it a pleasure to mount WA assaults on to
our beloved eastern state fellow competitors who thrive on the close racing our mob deliver. Full story inside.
The committe is trying to secure 2 night meetings around feb. march 2011 so stay tuned for more on this exciting new
format of racing. It is a very pleasurable experience on an excellent track blasting around under lights in a more social
sense of racing so until we see you out there stay upright.

Pre Club Meeting BBQ Sundowner Wednesday December 15th.
As the AGM is now in June there will be a BBQ and social refreshment from 6.00pm to 8.00ish when the meeting kicks
off. This can be a very buzy time of year but for those of you who can come and enjoy what will be the last event in 2010
calender the bar will be open and food supplied, everybody welcome.

Update on the Red Bull Festival of Speed
Tickets, info and maps will be send to participants on the 17th November, you should recieve an email of confirmation
prior to this, any queries ring me or email please, the organisers are very busy.

Joint Xmas BBQ at the clubrooms
The VSCC has invited us to join them on Monday 6th December for a joint Xmas BBQ at 6.30pm at our clubrooms, it
will be a great opportunity to have a yarn and swap tall tales with our fellow 4 wheeled historic racing fanatics

Get Well Soon Ross
Back in Black Vincent tuning guru Ross Payne is in hospital suffering from the effects of that rotten flu virus doing the
rounds. We all hope you recover soon and are back doing what you do best Ross, Hynsey hasn’t got a bloody clue when
it comes to mechanic’n - hands get too dirty apparently!

BROADFORD 2010 - Glenn Ducey

As intimated in last month's newsletter, the HCMC's team of Bill Hargrave, Joe Zappa, Peter MacFarlane, President Craig
Mitchell, Tony Hynes, Bob Turner, Eddie Preston and your intrepid correspondent lobbed at Broadford for the annual
funfest at the Southern Classic, run by the HMRAV, which this year attracted 151 riders with 171 machines. Due to a stuff-
up in the original supp regs, 125s were overlooked, so entries may have been even larger. Nonetheless, after the Friday
ride day which opened the eyes of the first-timers,(and unfortunately saw the 500 Vinton cry enough) we were all ready
for our combined Saturday morning practice/qualifying of 6 minutes ! After which the packed 56-race weekend was under
way :cool and overcast conditions Saturday gave way to a fine and warm Sunday, ideal race conditions in front of an
enthusiastic crowd.

A feature of this year's meeting was the ferocious battling in the P3 Classic 350 class, with Keith Campbell and Jack Wright
(Honda CB77s), Neil May (Molnar Manx), Buster Saunders (Barfield Jawa) and Phil Paton (Bultaco) really mixing it up all
weekend, to the crowd's delight. Campbell in fact raced five machines and was in just about every event, I chided him for
being weak and not racing a sidecar. Young Jack Wright seemed to have the measure of the 350 mob, butoften the lead
changed four or five times a lap, fabulous close racing. Worth mentioning that the entire weekend of torrid competition saw
only two crashes, and no riders transported.

Tony Hynes made up for the disappointment of the Vinton's demise by winning P2 with a new lap record, and led the Fastest
40 Classics (now trimmed to 31 by track regs, booo !) for two laps as well ! Eddie Preston rode gamely on Ridgey-Didge
and was rewarded with a win in Class C, Bill Hargrave finished third in P4 Unlimited, Peter MacFarlane third in P4 350,
Craig Mitchell fourth in P3 Unlimited, Bob Turner a strong 7th in a tough field in P5 Unlimited, Joe Zappa 9th and Peter
MacFarlane 12th in P3 500, in all another solid effort from our clubbies. I ended up 6th in P4 350, but jagged a 4th in the
Southern Classic from grid 10 and was arrested for sniggering as I left the circuit !

Our HCMC crew would like to thank all our helpers, and a hearty thanks to the HMRAV organising committee, especially
Kelly, Toddy and Marg who made our weekend so easy and enjoyable. Special thanks to our tame truckies Alex and Nobby
for their help with logistics. Another red-hot race weekend !

WHITEMANS PARK SHOW’N’SHINE - Mick Tesser

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect and what a great turnout of both old and new/restored/part-Restored and
unrestored road and racing machines fronted up for the Anniversary Display BBQ. It was a pleasure to see some of our
original club foundation members and past members also coming along to help celebrate. The hard-working committee
members and helpers made sure that there was food and drink aplenty and the skills exhibited at the BBQ’s by our
members was a sight to behold - never mind “Masterchef”, they were all here!

Maureen (nee Davies) Humphreys (still getting used to that Bob and Maureen!) was cracking the whip in the backgound
making sure everyone had a BBQ pack and a salad, while bar-person Glenn Ducey ensured no-one suffered from
dehydration. The new club banner and the marquees looked great and provided much needed shade, while the many
nippers who came along seemed to be having a great old time. We had many passers by coming in to take a look at
all the bikes and Bob Humphreys handed out a great swag of leaflets promoting our club and the State Championships.

Regular raffle draws saw many a bottle of specially labelled red and white wines snaffled up by lucky winners, and it
was great to have so many wives and families enjoying a day in the sun and gettinging a chance to hang out with
hubbies. All in all it was a really good day and judging by all the comments on the day and since then holding such an
event each year just before our State Titles event could be something we will be doing on a regular basis.

On behalf of all the members I’d like to thank all those who helped organise and run the event, both beforehand and
on the day - you should all be feeling well-pleased with your efforts.
