JUNE 1977.



Secretarial. June being the start of the rally season proper I have listed below forthcoming events for this month & next which seem inter≠esting for the 7 owner. Please try and support as many as possible-especially showing the flag at the Breamore House Rally at which we are organising a separate display of 7s.Help will also be needed on the

Day. Please contact me, if you can.

Please also make a note in your diaries AUGUST 21st - The Wimborne & Ferndown Round Tables are organising an Air Day at Canford

Magna. It includes sky divers, hot air balloons, stunt flying, and var≠ious other events. We have been asked to organise a Vintage & Classic Car Display on site! It sounds an extremely exciting day with also the added incentive of helping the club.

(Bernard typed the first two paragraphs, but his progress was so slow I took pity on him and took over. JC.)


The weekend near Swanage is still possibly going ahead. It is on the 18- 19th June - contact John Page, Christchurch 73207, for details. If itís cancelled, we will have a road run on Sunday 19th June - I will add separate details if this is going ahead.


I hope to have a few more entry forms for Beaulieu Rally on Clubnight. Anyone who would like to go in convoy please let me know.


There is no "Spotlight On" this month as nobody has given me details about themselves!


Next Club Night16th June Meet at Nags Head, Ringwood. Road run to Sir Walter Tyrell near Rufus Stone, Cadnam, with possibly a treasure hunt thrown in for good measure. Please try to get to the Nags Head by 8 pm for 8.30 departure.

It is from the Austin Service Journal March/April 1931. For those of you with Rubys, the design of the axle is very similar.
