Hi everyone,

Thanks to all those who have entered the 17th FE-FC Holden Nationals in Canberra at Easter 2018.  The committee is excited about what a good event we have in the planning.

By now just about everyone who has sent an entry should have heard back from me with an entry number, or where payment is not yet in the account, an email asking for payment to be made.

If you do not have an email address, the receipt & entry number has been posted to you.

If you have entered and not heard back, please get in touch with me, either by Private Message through the forum, or by email to the address nats2018 AT fefcholden.org.au  We are worried that posted entries may not have reached us because of issues with Australia Post being SO slow and other issues.

Check your emails first, but get back to me if you are concerned about whether we have your entry.

Cheers, and see a whole lot of you in Canberra!

Hello Surferboy - I have sent you a PM.

For everyone else - please ensure you use the banking and postage details that appear on the entry form that is on the Nationals website.  Our bank stuffed us about and early versions of the entry form do not have correct details on them unfortunately.

The link to the website is:  http://fefcholden.club/nats17/

Go to the "Entry Form" page and click on the PDF or Word links on that page to get the current entry form.

Anyone with any queries or concerns is welcome to send me a PM.

All entrants to date whose payment has been received should have received an email with a receipt this week.  PM me or send the Nationals email address an email if you think you should have heard from me and haven't or if you have any other queries about entry etc.

The entries are rolling in, and more are very welcome.  There are a few gurus on this site who are yet to get their entry in - looking forward to hearing from you all!!

Cheers
David

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the interest and comments.  Yes - we are definitely keeping track of the club that entrants belong to, and will check with the various clubs closer to the event to ensure that all entrants are eligible.

If anyone has any queries about eligibility to enter, please check out the website and feel free to email the organising committee on
Some part of this message have been locked
You have to Log-In to unlock it
with any queries in that regard.  We will be happy to link you up with an eligible club if required.  We are looking to encourage people to attend and not make it difficult for those who haven't been part of a club.  There are some rules that govern how the event operates which we need to abide by, but we will do what we can to assist anyone wanting to enter to become eligible if that is an issue.

Likewise any other queries, please email the committee and we will get you an answer.

Cheers
David

Hello Surferboy & Cathy,

An important thing missing from your list - send off entry form and payment!!  Shocked

Entries are coming in nicely, including from WA - none from Tassie yet - come on Tassie.  Kiss

See you in Canberra at Easter!  Smiley

Cheers

Here's an old link (with typo!) to a publication about testing on an FE in England.

And Norfolk Island, if that counts as overseas

I found this sorting through the filing cabinet.  It came home from the honeymoon in 1984. 

I can't remember seeing any old Holdens there in 1984, but it was a long time ago now!

Hi Glen,

The ACT club has been signed up for several years and I am aware of only good experiences.  As small club we have still been able to get points up and have got banners and eskies as rewards.

I'll be interested to see if anyone else has had different experiences, but ours has been positive.

Cheers
David

Hey Rod - don't be so hard on Mable or yourself.  As you say - just get out and enjoy driving your car.  Bit by bit you will get things done to get her in better condition.  But she is registered and running and the biggest hurdles are in the past.  As we saw at one garage today - you could be a lot further back in the process and years off being able to get out and drive.

It is great to have you and some other newish members in the club, full of love for the old cars and enthusiastic to get involved.

And yes - the ACT club is over represented with fabulous FC's (and some fabulous cars of other models as well) - the display we put on at lunchtime has been dubbed "The Macquarie* Nationals", and with good reason.  There was some really nice stuff on display, but also some honest old unrestored cars that are treasured just as they are.

As they say - happy Motoring!
Cheers,
David

* Macquarie Nationals because we were having a BBQ at the Pryce Senior's place in Macquarie ACT, and put on a mini display of about a dozen cars that were literally stopping the passing traffic and drawing admirers.

The ACT club is hosting Grey Pride at Berrima on Sunday 15 May 2016.  We extend an invitation to all who would like to attend, in a Holden of any coloured motor - grey, red, blue, gold, plastic - you are all welcome.

There are no trophies, just a relaxed day looking at cars, chatting to car lovers, having a wander around Berrima, cruising there and back again.

Details are on the flyer.  Gold coin donation for the Cancer Council.

I hope to see lots of people there.

There was a complete one at the Goulburn swap meet yesterday!  I thought about buying it myself, but passed it over on the basis I don't have storage space at present.  If only.....

Hopefully one will turn up for you.

Cheers

Oh no - you didn't trust the petrol gauge I hope.  I work on the basis of fill her every time.

We had a good turn out of FE and FCs, plus 3 or so other models.  The two tone Grey FC in the photos was also having its first club run for Rob & Jane.  They have owned it long term and joined the ACT club last year.  The FC has mostly been on the road until a fail to re-register in time resulted in an inspection being necessary, and a few jobs also being required.  Rob & Jane will be attending their first Nationals in Toowoomba.

Cheers
David

That's great.  Can't wait to see Mabel in real life - maybe out for the run this Sunday?

Cheers

18  General / FE-FC Holden Nationals / Re: 2018 ? on: January 31, 2016, 11:15:58 AM
It certainly is the ACT's turn.  We have a committee up and running a will have details for everyone attending Toowoomba, and then for more general release.

Easter is also the National Folk Festival in Canberra, so accommodation needs to be booked well in advance to beat the Morris Dancers. (One activity proposed for the sports afternoon on the Sunday was "Beating the Morris Dancers", but it turns out that they are a protected (sub)species.)  We will have details of a headquarters location with accommodation and where some meals will happen.

And don't forget to register for Toowoomba TODAY if you haven't done so already, or you miss out.

Cheers
David

I came across an old folder of pictures of Toowoomba.   Here is a selection to familiarise yourself before the Nationals.









It looks like a nice place full of old cars!

Cheers

The ACT parcel has arrived and is being distributed.  Love the poster and can't wait to get some quiet time with the DVD over the coming days.
