The second annual open day was held in conjunction with our meeting and AGM on 16th Feb 2020. It was another successful day although the hot weather may have deterred better attendance at the open day. The car balance was in use for the first time in about 20 years and provided good entertainment. Rod Morris who is a member of the NMC and was a student at the school many years ago presented the club with a school flag to be displayed in the clubhouse. Grant Morcom recorded the best time on the balance.
Many members had an enjoyable stay at the Lake Tinaroo Holiday Park on the weekend of 16/17th of November to attend the shed run to Mareeba, the party at the Kairi Hotel on the 16th and the monthly meeting on the 17th. Some members did not attend all weekend but came up to Mareeba for the shed run on the Saturday. It was well worth the effort to attend the shed run as we saw a great collection of Fords at Pauls sheds, all types of things mechanical at Raymond Plaths and some great WIP projects at Paul Jeromes.

On Sunday 30th June Top Of The State hosted the annual All Clubs Sports Day at the Meerawa club house. As hosts we were joined by Members of The All American Car Club of Cairns, FNQ Restorers, Northern Motoring Club ,the Fat Bastards Car Club and the MG Car Club. The day started early with both the TOTS and AACCC beginning the day with a BBque breakfast from 8am. The venue proved ideal as there was plenty of room for all the participants and activities and plenty of parking for the cars on site. The winning club on the day was the Northern Motoring Club.
Fine weather and a good turnout made for a good weekend at Kurrimine. Plenty of bogans and sheilas at the Saturday night party with TOTS well represented. Colorful display at the show and shine on Sunday morning with a predominance of Australian vehicles with a sprinkling of hot rods and american vehicles.
Quite a few members had a busy weekend and attended the open day at Nelson St on Saturday and the monthly meeting and Poker Run to Innisfail on Sunday. We were lucky to get fine weather on both days and a bonus on Sunday for some members was a visit to Phils to check out his almost completed new rod. Thanks Phil.
Two of our members won best dressed awards on the Poker Run, Julian for the men and Eve for the women.
What a great AGM and well attended, I would like to congratulate the newly elected members of the committee and thank all the members who attended. Our open day went down well with the other car clubs etc. A great rolI up of cars, some I haven’t seen before. A special thanks to Eve and her crew in the kitchen and the Gerard and the boys down stairs on the Barbecue, well done everyone
Thanks also to the Cairns Regional Council for making the club house available.
