What's Happening at Caversham?



A Club information sheet by Rob Ozanne

 

WHAT’S HAPPENING AT CAVERSHAM?

WHO IS THE MYSTERY GUEST SPEAKER FOR THE APRIL GENERAL MEETING?
FELLOWSHIP AT 7.00pm MEETING AT 8.00pm
                                       
THE CLUBHOUSE.
“Dad’s Army” continues to work miracles working feverishly to get the building ready for the inaugural General Meeting on April the 7th . The painting is finished, the floors polished fridges acquired, the grounds cleaned, fire hoses installed and outside lighting organised. Preparation of the garage is nearing completion and will be ready for the first of a series of practical workshops (see article on Don Hall and Webber Carburettors).
 
It was great to welcome Alan Tomlinson (winner of the 1938 AGP) to the clubhouse and have him present the first of many posters to be hung in the main hall.
             
THE “D” CIRCUIT.
The bush in the centre of the “D” circuit has been designated “Bush Forever,” which means, for the time being at least, that this circuit is safe from development. However, the North/ South runway which is the main straight for the circuit, may have a two lane highway running down part of its’ length. If this happens it doesn’t mean the circuit can’t be used. We have a number of options open to us. We could apply for road closure of one lane or create a new main straight alongside the road. Remember, the intention is to run an event here once a year.
 
NEGOTIATIONS WITH DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING AND INFRASTRUCTURE.
The Caversham Committee is meeting regularly with this body to negotiate certainty of tenure of the buildings and to influence the design of the subdivision that will take place on land to the West of the main straight. These negotiations have been very positive and a great deal of progress has been made. However, these things take time as anyone who has dealt with government can attest.
 
THE CAVERSHAM REGULARITY EVENT.
This will be in the form of a “Go to Whoa” regularity and will be run on the “D” part of the circuit, the straight being used for transport only to eliminate the dust. The bitumen surface will be upgraded for the event. We will update members as planning progresses.
