Dear Affiliate Club Members                                                             18th December 2022

As we look forward to Christmas, I think it is fair to say we have had a very good year in the club. Thankfully, back to normality with a full programme of events being run. The highlight of our year, was our Powerscourt Picnic event in August which served as the backdrop for the FIVA presentation to Rosemary Smith, which IVVCC instigated and were delighted to be associated with. Our other events, including the Gordon Bennett Rally in June and Brass Brigade in September were well supported and we had some great gatherings at these events. I do hope you all enjoyed your motoring experiences and took the opportunity to catch up with members of IVVCC, and their affiliated clubs.

For 2023, we have a very full calendar planned, including, a very special Gordon Bennett event from the 8th to the 10th of June, to celebrate the one hundred and twentieth anniversary of the 1903 race. Keep an eye on our website www.ivvcc.ie for updates on this and our other planned events for 2023. We look forward to your support in whatever way you can by competing, helping, or watching our events. We very much value the support of the affiliated clubs, and we urge IVVCC members to support the affiliate club events.

My thanks for the invaluable support we got from our event sponsors, and the specialist media. In the IVVCC, we very much value the relationship we have not just with our members, but with all the assistance and good will from the wider enthusiast community.

At this special time of the year, I would also like to take the opportunity to remember members and friends and to extend our deepest sympathies to the families of those we have lost since last year, including, long time member, past president, and the founder of our ARM community Jim Cullen who passed away in September.

Finally, it just remains for me to say behalf of the Board of the IVVCC, to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a happy New Year, and thank you for your support. My very best wishes to you all.

Keep in touch and stay safe.

Warmest Regards,

Myles O’Reilly
