Our Christmas outing this year is being hosted by the Kings at their home in Kilsyth.
Meet from 11:00 am onwards and expect to head for home sometime between 3:00 and 4:00 pm.
Could those attending with surnames starting with A-K bring a dessert and L-Z bring a salad please.
Meat to accompany the salads will be provided by the club.
The day will include a raffle and presentation of a small gift to those bringing a Packard.
If it is a nice day, consider a leisurely drive to Victoria Park in Daylesford for their second motorfest. It is open to all makes of collectible vehicles and organisers are expecting as many as 1500 vehicles on display.
As in the previous year, there will also be live demonstrations, food and trade stalls, best-dressed competitions, live music and specialty vehicles on display.
Entry fees for display cars has not been posted yet but is expected to be similar to last year ($10 per car)
