From the Chairman
Just returned from our 36th National Saamtrek which was held at the Aldam Resort just outside Ventersburg in the Freestate, once again a very successful event and those that attended it enjoyed it thoroughly. If you missed this year – do not worry, there will be another and another, those that have not attended one, I don’t know what the reason is but you are missing out big time. It is a great weekend, with great company and beautiful examples of classic and more modern Volvo’s. Being held once a year gives you more than enough time to plan, budget and save.
Congrats to all the winners and second places, you worked hard to get your Volvo ready for the judging and there were some great examples. I eventually took my 67 P220 down after buying it 11 years ago! The furthest it travelled since 2006. It ran sweetly and some small tweaks and things to sort out and it will be done. Brings one great satisfaction to save an oldie from the scrapyard and rusting away, and giving it a second lease in life and it will probably still be around long after I have left this earth.
So my 2017 message? With 2017 on it’s back I wish you a blessed festive season ahead, I wish you many happy miles in your Volvo, I wish you good health, happiness and success. And if you are not a member yet, join the Club and come see for yourself what we are about.
Be good and keep that rubber on the tar!
