Vale – Lui Mori

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of our very own Lui Mori. His cheeky smile, the twinkle in his eyes and his gentle manner will be missed by us all. Lui mentored many of our officials, imparting his knowledge and guiding us forward. Our lives are all the better for knowing him.

When funeral arrangements are known, we will email them out.  Chaplain Dave Vaughan is available for a chat if you feel the need to speak to someone.  He can be contacted on 0418 803 239 or email davnar@adam.com.au

Our thoughts and prayers go out to David Mori and his family.

RIP Lui. xx

SAMROA / Adelaide Superkart Club / Track Time Motorsport – Interclub Social Challenge

The next interclub social challenge is a bowling night at AMF Woodville Bowl on Thursday 16th October.

Apart from the right to fight it out over the coveted trophy, it is also a great opportunity to get to know each other a little better away from the frantic pace of a Mallala.

The centre will open up 4 lanes for us with 6 people per lane. This will allow us 8 players per club to fight it out over the coveted trophy!! We will devise a fair format for the night to ensure an interesting challenge to the end – more to come.

Meet at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.

AMF Woodville, 819 Port Rd, Woodville

Cost is $25 per player which includes 2 games, shoe hire and finger food. (I will ask the committee to subsidize this). Drinks to be paid separately – Bar will be open.

Following the games, the centre will open up the café area for us to all get together, mingle, share a few drinks/stories and present the trophy!

Please contact me if you are up for the challenge before Thursday (2nd Oct) as I need to let ASC know the names & numbers by end of the week.

Cheers,
Darren

Shannons Nationals 25th to 27th April

Hi Everyone,

Many thanks to all who have put their names down for this event, which commences on Anzac Day with practice, then continues over the weekend.

This event is one of the best events for the season, with categories such as Kerrick Sports Sedans,V8 Touring Cars, Porsche GT3’s, Formula Fords, and Super Six Touring Cars making up the programme. We encourage you to come out and enjoy the racing “up close”, and to gain further experience working with the lights based at each flag point.

We have been told that this will be a “lights only” event, which will be a first for most of us.

Numbers for Sunday in particular are a bit light, so we encourage/ask for a few more names to be added to the database.

The cut-off date for putting your name down has been extended until 23rd April, so if you haven’t done so yet, please add your name to the list before then.

Regards to all,

Adam Litchfield (Chief Flag)

Ray McGuiness (Assistant Chief Flag)
