Hello and welcome to another newsletter.

Yes, I know it is only one week since the last newsletter, but I have some info that can't wait until next week. Below are the details for the Mercedes-Benz Club of the ACT 25th anniversary celebrations. These are to be held on the weekend of the 22-23rd of this month and I would suggest that if you can make it to Canberra for the weekend, it would be a great weekend. Sorry I didn't post this info earlier, but I didn't get it untill a few days ago.

John Green.
