CLUB NIGHT – TUESDAY 31st JANUARY

SATURDAY 4th FEBRUARY GARDEN PICNIC LUNCH
KINGSTON NEAR CRESWICK
Relatively new member Graham Fisher has invited the club for a BYO picnic lunch in the 3-acre gardens of his property at in the small hamlet of Kingston (just north east of Creswick).
His 1951 RMA will be familiar to some of our longer term members. Graham’s parents Wal and Una Fisher were active members in the 1970’s. Graham and brother got the Riley back on the road a couple of years ago much to the pleasure of their father, who is now in his late 90’s. I am sure you agree the gardens look spectacular, the building being the old Primary school. My primary school never looked like this. So come along, a 2 hour run from Melbourne via either the Calder or Western Highway.
Arrive any time from 10.30 onwards and enjoy this lovely setting with your Riley Friends.
SUNDAY 26th FEB BRITISH AND EUROPEAN MOTORING SHOW
New Location CARRIBEAN PARK EVENT CENTRE SCORESBY.
This is a different venue to the Caribbean Market & Gardens where we had our display day some ten years ago. This should be a great day for us to show off our Riley as part of our 65 year celebrations.
