NZHRA Monthly Newsletter - August 2014

Hi <<Club Name>>, Welcome to the Monthly Member News!

Well I have to say that I am very pleased that I no longer need a canoe to get around Kerikeri after the recent awful weather. I was extremely disappointed to have to miss the Palmerston North Hot Rod Clubs Swapmeet, but with the sheer number of road closures between the Swapmeet and I, it simply wasn't achievable. However Mark Joblin from Zone 3 was able to man the NZHRA stand and was really impressed with the turn out. A big thanks to Palmerston North Hot Rod Club for your support of the NZHRA by providing a free trade site.

The Protecta Insurance NZHRA National Show is just over 2 months away! We have moved the NZHRA Executive Meeting to October and have changed the location to be in Dunedin, so that as many Executives as possible will be able to attend the show and be available for discussion with attending NZHRA Members and members of the public. Click here to view the latest Press Release about the National Show.

A big thank you to the team at Classic Cover Insurance who have increased their support of the NZHRA to become an Annual Sponsor. This continued support is greatly appreciated.

We are very gratified by the expressions of support we have been receiving lately from clubs, about the current direction of the NZHRA. The recent Roadshow has resulted in a number of Clubs making contact to express their support to the Executive. This same message has been coming through loud and clear at the many events of late at which we have had an official presence. It is great to know that our efforts are not going unnoticed. Thanks to the Clubs and individuals who have indicated their support.

Regards Warren Pattinson.
Most of you love to check out other Hot Rods and Street Machines so we have decided to start a picture of the month competition!

Send in a picture of your vehicle at a show, or just looking glorious in the backyard and you could be in to win an awesome Hot Rodding prize!
Each month one picture will be chosen as the winner and will receive a copy of The Kiwi Hot Rodders Guide to Life 2 - by Steve Holmes.

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.
