NZHRA Monthly Newsletter - October 2014

Hi <<Club Name>>, and welcome to the Monthly Member News.

Well it looks like summer is finally here, and judging by the turnout at the Zone 1 Games Day which I attended over the weekend, everyone's itching to get out of hibernation and back into the Hot Rodding scene.  Events are starting to ramp up now, and with it being a Lottery year, the NZHRA will have a presence at most events, some with the Lottery car in tow.  If you see the NZHRA tent, come over and say hi.  

The NZHRA's recent AGM and Executive Meeting went very well, with the minutes of both meetings being emailed out to Secretaries earlier today.  Reading those minutes and this monthly report from me, are the best ways to keep up with everything happening in your Association.

I also wanted to thank everyone who completed the recent survey.  There are a lot of comments to go through, and we expect to base our Strategy Day in March around some of those responses.

Until next month, hope to see you out there, enjoying the Hot Rodding scene.

Yours in Rodding
Warren Pattinson
NZHRA President

Please include your Name and Member Number, when you send in a picture, so we know who you are. All images are to be sent to

IMPORTANT - Please ensure you are allowed to send us the photo. Most images on the Internet are not allowed to be copied, and some people prefer for images of their vehicles to be kept private.

October's winner of this massive bucket of Mothers Car Care products, was Nathan Cole of Alpine Street Machines Inc.  Congratulations Nathan.

You could be next, and you don't have to do a thing - just be Affiliated and wait for the call.

The '36 Ford Sedan was a real hit at the recent Protecta Insurance NZHRA National Show, with lots of people wanting to purchase tickets immediately!  Of course, ticket sales will actually start on 17th January, so make sure your Club is ahead of the rush by ensuring your tickets are pre-ordered.  Club Secretaries should contact Alicia for a copy of the Ticket Order Form, or for more information.
