NZHRA Monthly Newsletter - December 2014
View this email in your browser
Hi <<First Name>>, and welcome to the Monthly Member News.

At NZHRA we are dedicated to safety, and with the Silly Season almost upon us, the need to pay extra attention to safety on the roads is paramount.   No one wants to end the year with any unwanted disruptions, so please enjoy the holidays but do as we do:  always put safety first.

The office will be closing down over the Christmas break, with Alicia taking a well-deserved break from Friday 19th December until Monday 12th January.  As many of us Hot Rodders know, if it wasn't for "last minute", we wouldn't get anything done, so please remember that "last minute" might be closer than you think if you're needing anything from the NZHRA Office.  Due to this break, the next newsletter won't be until early February, and by then I expect I may have already seen a lot of you out and about as the NZHRA Executive will be present at many large events this summer.  We'll be predominantly selling Lottery Tickets (or assisting Clubs to), but will also have Merchandise on sale.  Come and say hello, and maybe get yourself one of our popular new tee shirts, whilst supporting your Association.

I would personally like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Safe and Prosperous New Year.  

Yours in Rodding
Warren Pattinson
NZHRA President

Hot Rod Lottery

Wow - great response from Clubs so far, with more than 30% already having ordered their Lottery Tickets.  We're still fielding enquiries about how to buy tickets, so there are plenty of people keen to be in to win.

The latest on the car: after receiving an extensive tidy-up with Tony Robinson, Zone 9 Director, it will soon be making its way up the country in time for Lottery launch at Kumeu (and nationwide) on 17th January.  After that, it'll be at Orewa Beach Festival, Leadfoot Festival, Americarna (it's back on!) and Beach Hop.

Very soon there'll be a page on our website, listing all the Clubs who are selling tickets, so you shouldn't have to miss out, no matter where you are in the country.  In the meantime, w
hy not follow the car on our Facebook page?  
NZHRA Merchandise

Running out of ideas for Christmas presents?  Well, you've come to the right place.  Check out the Merchandise Page on our website, for some unique gifts for the car enthusiast in your life.

Congratulations to our November picture-of-the-month winner: Paul Coward of Southside Streeters Inc for this photo of his awesome 1936 Ford Sedan.  Thanks for sending it in Paul!

Send in a picture of your vehicle at a show, or just looking glorious in the backyard and you could be in to win!

Each month one picture will be chosen as the picture of the month, with the winner receiving a copy of The Kiwi Hot Rodders Guide to Life 2 by Steve Holmes.  We will also put your photo forward to possibly be turned into a lolly tin, like those you may have seen at The Warehouse.
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.

November's winner of this massive bucket of Mothers Car Care products, was Kevin Bird from Yankee Haulers.  Congratulations Kevin and happy car cleaning!

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