Wow two months have nearly gone by already!! Well, first of all many happy returns for the season and I am hoping you are all well and enjoying the lovely
if not a tad hot/cold weather at times!
This year will be the last year for the club, sad to say. Unfortunately, our funds are nearing an end.
On that note we are still a legal
entity and therefore membership fees of $5 per person need to be paid.
Due 28 February 2020.
If not received I will assume you will not be with us for the last year.

August 24 and 25 2019
Host: Waimate Savage Club
Members of the Christchurch Savage Club attended this
annual event, Savages Maureen Watkins, Jess Mellish, Gary Watts, Lilian and Connie van Elk,
As usual and similar to previous Southern Group’s Get Togethers the hospitality was great. Also, the organising of this was truly superb.
The Southern Group’s meeting in the afternoon commenced with reports from the eight attending clubs. This included an unfortunate outlining of the many members whom had passed away over the last two years.
Re-elected as Southern
Group’s Chairperson; Savage Mr Ian Buckingham and Savage Mr Brian Wilson as Secretary. Both members of The Waimate Savage Club.
A delicious meal on Saturday night was served followed by excellent entertainment by all attending
clubs. Christchurch Savages Jess Mellish, Maureen Watkins, Gary Watts fully participated on stage.
Sunday morning included a lively jam session and a delicious morning tea, this concluded the event.
Many thanks to our
5 members who attended this event and for our overnight accommodation at a nearby Airbnb residence which was tops.

Grandfathers and Grandmothers.
A grandfather always made a special effort with his
grandchildren. Many Sunday mornings he would take his seven-year-old granddaughter out for a drive in the car for some bonding time. One Sunday however, he had a bad cold and he really didn’t feel like being up at all. Luckily, Grandmother came to the
rescue and said that she would take the grandchild out. When they returned, the little girl anxiously ran upstairs to see Grandpa. “Well,” the grandfather asked: “did you enjoy your ride with Granny?” “Oh yes, Grandpa,”
the girl replied: “and do you know what? We didn’t see a single dumb idiot or lousy sh*thead
