Dear Members

Our Life Member, Les tapping passed away peacefully on Monday morning (20th May 2019) at RAH where he had been for a few days arising from a deterioration in his health in recent time.

The funeral will be delayed for a few weeks to allow a family member to arrive from the UK. It will be held at Harrisons Funerals, 173  Port Road, Queenstown, at 2.00pm on Friday 7th June. Mary says it will be announced in the Advertiser this coming Saturday,.

We  have offered to Mary that CCSA will standby to assist in whatever way and whenever  she might require our help in assisting to clear out Les’s garage, with regard to any Citroen related material.

Les had been living at the Churchill Retreat at Kilburn. Mary commented today that he was  very popular during his short stay there, and the staff were always amazed at the number of visitors dropping in to see Les — how good is that?

How fortunate it was that I was able to publish his story in the may edition of Le’Auto.

Remembered by all his fellow car and motor bike enthusiast

Historic Vehicles Information

News form Greg Moorhouse  our Historic Vehicle Representative

As I am going to be away for our June Club and Committee meetings please send email and post on Web site the following message.
Our 2 main Historic Vehicle people Greg and John Beswick are going to be absent from our June Meeting so to ensure your Log Books are stamped and signed off before the end of June, and hence your car is registered, if you intend to drive after the 30th June you have a couple of options:
You also need to be a financial member of CCSA for the log book to be stamped and your car to be “registered”, 
1. Come on Matts Mystery Tour on the 26th May and bring your Log Book/s with you and I’ll Stamp and sign on the day… preferred option.
2. Bring your Log Book/s to me at 28 Angas Rd before the 31st May (call to make a time 0499600841) I will generally be available after 12.30 pm weekdays but call first.
3. Bring your book/s to me at home after the 19th June again after 12.30 pm weekdays best, again call first.
4. Wait till our July Club Meeting and I can sign and stamp then, but you will be unregistered from 30th June until the 10th July.
5. Post your Log book/s to me with a self addressed and stamped envelope for return of your book/s and I will stamp and sign as long as Club membership has been paid. NB I will be away 1st to 18th June so books would not be returned during these dates plus
you will be unable to drive your car whilst the book/s are in the mail.
I apologise for any in convenience in advance but trust this info allows you to make arrangements so you can continue to drive your historic vehicle uninterrupted , otherwise you will need to wait  until July meeting to drive, once the 30th June arrives.. 
Best regards
