Scott Williams and his Moke, Scrap Douglas, have gone to the USA for a trip. It took a bit of organising, but as the story unfolds you will see it was worth it.
Tell us all about it Scott.

Scrappy and I at Bird Rock on 17 Mile Drive. It's called that because there's a rock - and it has birds on it.

  Scrappy and I have had a busy day sightseeing around San Francisco; from the Bridge to the Rock.

I offered help pulling the cable cars up the SF hills, but they weren't impressed with Scrap Douglas' power.

  We both thought probably not, but when you're wandering Fisherman's Wharf and see a grill like this ... the photo just takes itself!!

Bridal falls in Yosemite National Park. Such a stunning place.

  Scrappy felt a bit overwhelmed by the size of everything. So I had to buy a picture that kept him a bit more in perspective.

Scrappy and I are in Seattle and contrary to the popular film title - we slept...

  We finished up at the famous Seattle gum wall - while I chewed the fat with some locals, scrappy got stuck in...

One of the purposes of this club is to be of some good in the community. Our Easter Raffle was for the Clown Doctors and Emerald RSL asked us to help out with parading veterans on Anzac Day.

Your next opportunity to help out is at Surfside Primary School Fresh Food Fair on Friday October 28th. We will raise money to help with their fresh food garden and healthy living projects. For space and insurance reasons you must let Terry know you will be coming.

No we're not horsing around. This is not just a dash that Ron has presented to Peter.

It represents a thank you from committee to a member who has done heaps for the club over the years.
Peter was having a little more trouble than necessary with the rebuild of his Moke.
Ron dashed in to get him over the line with one annoying issue. So truly, this is not just a dash.
It could also be thought of as a Melbourne Cup for a derserving Mokee.

Editor's Note
For those too young to know, Just A Dash won the 1981 Melbourne Cup and when he died in 2012 he was the oldest surviving Melbourne Cup winner.

IMD 2016 brought out a bunch of Victorian Mokes to meet at Bundoora Park in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. Thanks to Andy Preston for the video on VIC MOKE and these photos.

Thanks also to everyone in the Moke Owners' Association of Victoria who put their Moke into a public space on this day.

What a wonderful experience. As instructed by the constitution all committee positions are declared vacant at each AGM and an election is held to fill vacancies. At the 2016 AGM, for the first time in many years, at the end of the meeting all committee positions had been filled.

This reflects two things:

  1. The growth in membership - several positions were filled by relatively recent club members.
  2. The growing understanding within the club that its success is directly connected to the willingness of its members to be involved in big and small ways.

Meet your new committee.
