TRIP LOTTO In order to encourage more activities and getting together, the Club has introduced TRIP LOTTO. At the beginning of each year we put the names of all Club members in a hat and draw one out for each month. The “winner” for each month is requested to organise an activity for that month. Activities may be trips, social events, a coffee time, picnic—whatever. You are only limited by your imagination. It does not have to be a 4WD trip. Those who run an activity are exempt from Trip Lotto for at least 2 years. Thankyou to those who have already contributed to the fun.
