At our recent club meeting, committee members presented a cheque for £1750 to the Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) with money raised from the Club’s annual raffle. Thanks to everyone who took part this year and helped us to raise this tremendous sum for the charity.
We’re looking for some long-strawed wheat to use with a binder at the Rally next year. If anyone has some that they can let us have, preferably in the Strathkinness or Peat Inn areas, please let John Sinksi, or one of the other committee members know.

We’ll also have a special feature on Beet and field-scale vegetable production.
We’ll have all kinds of vintage vehicles at the show, with plenty of action in the ring all day. On Sunday, we’ll be making the draw for our Charity Raffle for 2019 where you’ve got the chance to win a superb Fordson Super Dexta vintage tractor (or a £400 alternative cash prize), or one of the many other smaller prizes. Proceeds from the Raffle this year will be going to the SCAA, Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance. If you haven’t bought your raffle ticket yet, don’t worry as we’ll be selling them throughout the day at the Rally.

The Tractor World Scotland show is on this weekend (23/24th March 2019) at the Royal Highland Showground, Ingliston. Come along and see us on our stand, featuring exhibits and machinery related to the themes of our Rally this year, Farming in WW2 and Neeps. We’ll also have the top prize in our Charity Raffle on display, a 1964 Super Dexta. This year we are supporting the Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) with our charity raffle. SCAA operate Scotland’s only charity-funded air ambulance helicopter from their base in Scone and provide a vital rapid response service for emergencies in many of Scotland’s more rural and remote areas.
The Tractor World Scotland show is now in it’s second year and has moved to the larger Highland Hall at the Royal Highland Centre with lots more exhibitors, trade stands and stalls. If you’ve not already been to the show, the final day this year is Sunday 24th March, so come along and see us on the FVAMC stand!
The Club dinner will be held on Friday, 7th December at the Lomond Hills Hotel. If you’ve not already done so, could you please let John Sinksi know if you plan to come along so that he can confirm numbers with the hotel.
It was a pleasure to welcome Doddie Weir along to the September club meeting where Chairman John Sinski presented Doddie with a cheque for £3,000 for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. The Foundation funds research into finding a cure for Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and offers support and help to people who have already been diagnosed with the condition. Following on from his talk to the club earlier in the year, Doddie gave us an update on current and future medical research into MND and talked about some of the things the Foundation is doing to help people living with the condition. On behalf of Doddie and the Club, thanks once again to everyone who bought tickets in our Prize Draw Raffle this year which helped us to support this very worthwhile cause.
