Naracoorte Historic Vehicle Club will be hosting the 4 Club Tour on August 24-25.

This tour is held annually involving Bordertown, Kingston, Meningie and the local club, with each club hosting every four years.

Naracoorte held it back in 2015 and it was very successful for the club and the town. Veteran and vintage car enthusiasts come from all over SA as well as Victoria for the weekend, the club expecting 70-80 of these vehicles.

Activities have been organised such as a caves visit and a drive down to Rymill Winery. Friday night is a "meet and greet" night at the club for the visitors who arrive Friday. Cars will be on display at the clubrooms Saturday morning for the public to view.

On Saturday night the high school will be hosting a presentation dinner and the Lions club will be supplying breakfast on Sunday morning. During Sunday's lunch the local club will be handing over to Kingston for the 2020 tour.

The club recently hosted a group of 13 Vietnam veterans from Mount Gambier for morning tea and lunch.

Markets held by the club monthly on the second Saturday have been a bit slow over the winter months as the weather has not been kind, but the regular stall-holders have still been coming along. The vehicle club is still offering Devonshire morning tea as well as the regular barbecue and would love the public to come along and support the stall-holders. The market has been going for many years and it would be a shame if owing to lack of public support it was not to happen.

New stall-holders would be welcome. The club has been able to make donations to worthy local charities from the proceeds of the markets.

The club's AGM is to be held in the clubrooms at 7.30pm next Thursday where president Graham Henschke will present his annual report. All positions will be declared vacant.

The club welcomes new members who own a veteran or vintage vehicle and enjoy the company of other owners. The club also welcomes any enthusiasts of stationary engines or vintage tractors.
