Air Conditioning for Bunk House to go ahead

The club committee at its August general meeting has agreed to go ahead with the project to provide air conditioning for the club bunkhouse. Seperate single system air conditioners will be installed in each of the three rooms of the bunkhouse. This will be a great enhancement to the bunkhouse and will be welcomed by those members and guests using our facilities over the summer. We are in the process of obtaining quotes for supply, and after a purchase is made the units will be installed.

More memories of Laurie Bunnik

A reminder from a number of years ago that Laurie Bunnik, who passed away last week had many interests. This is a short item from the club's newsletter in April 2006.
Laurie's Daimler Wins Major Award
Laurie Bunnik passed through Horsham on Good Friday on the way to the Biannual National Daimler Rally in Bendigo. Laurie has been working on his Daimler for many years now and came up trumps at the Rally winning two awards. Laurie and his pride and joy picked up the 'Presidents Trophy' and the 'New Zealand trophy' for the best presented Daimler. On Easter Monday Laurie again passed through Horsham on the way home to Casterton. He filled up on fuel and took PW and myself for a drive around the taxiway to the fuel bowsers to refuel.
