October 2017 Journal Entry

At the end of August we received the sad news of the death of former VMCC President Graham Hallard.  Graham was, along with his wife Brenda, one of the most active members our section has ever been fortunate to have, and our condolences go to Brenda and their son, Adam and daughter, Anna.

The very existence of our Wrinkly Runs and Lunches, among many other contributions, is due to the tireless efforts of Graham and Brenda. A full obituary will appear in next month’s Journal.

We had a full month of runs with Mark Dudfield’s Bill Lacey Run, Neil and Katie Batchelor’s Picnic Run and my River Run with breakfast but no river. We also enjoyed excellent Wrinkly Runs with Andy Geden and Alan Bailey and our Guest Speaker at Club Night was Phil Morris on how not to fly a plane. Thanks to all for their efforts.
