Coming up in 2010

All those fortunate enough to enjoy the meetings in Victoria at Woodside and Crossover and viewed the great collections of Barry Earl and Diane and Glen Orwin in March are still talking about it.

Our next big event is the Annual General Meeting in Albury on October 23rd, when past president Shirlee Kellett will again be guest speaker explaining more about electric irons.

The next issue of the quarterly 'Iron Express' will be in June, so members wishing to contribute an item should contact the editor, Ray Greenwood on ASAP. This issue will include an update on Australian Irons and an article by Peter Homes introducing his favourite mangles.

In the Beginning

An Inaugural Meeting of the Australian Iron Club Association was held in Sydney in October 1992, with 48 people attending. It was a great success, with several people travelling from Victoria.

2007 sees a healthy Club, with 118 members from Australia, New Zealand, U.S.A. the United Kingdom and Germany.

The Australian Iron Club has an A.G.M. (usually the third weekend in October and alternates between N.S.W. and Victoria), with at least two social meetings during the year, one in N.S.W. and one in Victoria.

Our publication is called “The Iron Express” and is distributed to members four times per year (March, June, September and December).

Membership is from July – June for a cost of $30 (Australia) and $35 (International) per family.
