Meeting Report
 
 
Meeting 3110 Monday 4th April 2022
Vocational visit in conjunction with Gawler Light to the SheaOak Log Museum.
Guests included: Gawler Light members, Darryl Matthews, Dave Cockshell, Grant Buik, Greg Morris, Marie-louise Lees, Peter Harper, Robert Eley, Stephen Arthur, Steve Mcloughlin, and friends of members Allan Benier, Harrison Clinch, Heather Folland, Julie Smeaton, Kinglsey Folland and Michele Nys.
Apologies were received from Dave Griffiths, Lance Hatcher, Bruce Eastick, Kevin Clarke, Julie Tekell, Mark Forgie, Bob Ahrens, Patsy Johnson, Colin Bazeley, and Deb Williams.
 
We all gathered outside the museum entrance and proceeded to have a very pleasant tour of the museum the Ahrens family had built to house a lifetime collection of Steam trains, steam and diesel engines cars trucks and other memorabilia of blacksmith tools going back over a hundred years.
Tony Fotheringham and Barry explained what the various engines did and started them up as the museum's goal is to have every exhibit to be in working order. Obviously steam is impractical so an elaborate network of pipes has been installed to run all the machinery on air pressure, it was amazing to watch some of these very old engines come to life.
 
After the meeting, we all gathered in the community hall to have an informal meeting where both President Mark and President Marie-Louise open and closed their respective meetings.
Both clubs supported the Relay for Life event which proved to be very successful for them and raised over $40,000 for such a wonderful cause.
